I love Romero's films; his zombie films have always focused more on moral issues and sociology than just horror and blood (though I never cared much for any of the remakes). That being said, I was expecting more from this than just a movie novelization in comic book form. It wasn't terrible, but I spent $22 on this, and though I love Dawn of the Dead, I'm not that much a fan that I'd still give this a five-star rating.

a great little adaptation of a classic film. couldn't have asked for a better writer to do it justice.

Its simply the film in comic form. Word for word the text is lines from the movie... SO if you want a summed up, graphic version of the George A. Romero classic. THEN go right ahead. Personally I'd rather watch the film... The only time you'll hear someone say the movie is better then the book. HA!

Big fan of the movie. This novel tries hard and has some good stuff but falls short on the character development.

This is a cool novelization of the original Dawn of the Dead. I found it on eBay a while back. If you're really a nerd (like me) you can find more details to look for in the movie.

Love Steve Niles like you wouldn't believe, but not his best. Very faithful adaptation to the film with sub-standard art.
