Read in December, 2008

Another take in the growing canon of contemporary zombie fiction. The first book in The Walking Dead begins with the eerie loneliness of a sparsely populated rural town in Kentucky and slowly takes the reader through the process of gradual realization and urgent horror that Romero fans will surely recognize. Tony Moore frequently plays with the elasticity of time on his black and white pages as he stretches a fleeting moment into several distinct agonizing panels. The final act suggests further experimentation with post-zombie North America as survivors form tribal bonds and struggle with the transition from their former lives.
