    Unleash The Fanboy - Eric Bridges Oct 22, 2013

    Kevin Eastman and Tom Skulan have brought a fresh idea of the zombie apocalypse to the table that makes me excited about zombies again. There story is quick and simple but keeps you guess while you read panel to panel. In a way, there are three stories going on and the interweaving of the three works so fluidly that you can keep up and understand them. It is quite fantastic. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Resources - Jim Johnson Oct 21, 2013

    One aspect of this comic is that the resurrection of the dead is focused on deceased military members, which might touch a nerve in this modern day where those who serve are rightfully treated with more reverence now than a generation ago. Clearly no disrespect is intended, but that could be missed by those who don't "get" this comic and its deliberate sensationalist, over-the-top approach. "Zombie War" #1 is shallow, sure, but it's also a fun, guilty pleasure that shows what zombies were like before they were cool. Read Full Review

    The short and skinny is that this is a campy fun romp in a sarcastic zombieland. Read Full Review

    Comics Bulletin - Taylor Lilley Oct 29, 2013

    Rather than sleepwalk into nihilistic revenging, Zombie War seems to suggest that redemption is ours to seize, and in doing so shows less concern with craft, and more heart, than any other comic on the racks. Maybe we could learn a few things from the '90s. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Therapy - Cody "The Thorverine" Ferrell Oct 23, 2013

    If you really, really loved Zombie War when it first came out then you might want to see it in color for nostalgia's sake. This one wasn't for me but you might dig it. Read Full Review

    Comic Bastards - Adam Kelly Oct 23, 2013

    The most ironic thing to me was that this was an oversized issue, yet not much happened at all regarding the advancement of the story. I think that if this plot were to actually take place, and it would be overwhelmingly terrifying. But honestly I didn't feel any of the intensity or horror that should have been present in a book like this. Read Full Review

    A story that is hampered by a need for speed that isn't required, and an undead situation which focuses more on the brutality of the 'zombies' rather than the supposed war that is being fought. Going from zero to apocalypse is rather boring. The style is unique and so is the cause so I don't necessarily regret buying it, but the story was far too rushed for my tastes.
