About the Book:
Zombies, We’re Human Too… starts at a support group session. Different people are sharing their stories and how the events changed them. We hear a story about a zombie attack at a local gym. We also have a tale from a zombie incident in a junkyard.
A couple years ago a friend got me a TPB of the first few issues of The Walking Dead as a Christmas gift. I remember thinking zombie stories weren’t really my genre of preference; but I’d check it out because it could surprise me. It was a pleasant surprise.
Fast forward to the fall in 2022. I received notification that a campaign for Zombies, We’re Human Too… was launching on Kickstarter. When I saw how many creators I was familiar with were involved, I backed the project.
Zombies, We’re Human Too… has terrific character development. I appreciated how we had stories that take place in unconventional settings. A gym and a junkyard wouldn’t be the first places many would expect these stories to take place in.
I love Mr. Yak’s work on this cover. My youngest would call it “creepy cool”. It has just the right amount of gore to be cool while not having so much that it’s gross. Well played. The artwork on the interior pages has a bit more gore in places. Given the nature of the stories, it’s not gratuitous.
As a geek on a budget I would say compared to others, this is a very unique zombie story. This book is much more Walking Dead than just plain walk away. If you’re into zombie stories you’re in for a treat!
