Wait, I don't have a tag for zombie? Maybe I should. Someone suggested this to me and I must say it was disturbing but at the same time funny and original. A cross between the new book, Ashes, in haiku and some graphic novel / horror flick. The "blood stained" pages with 3D-style pictures that include life-like hair follicles, duct tape, brains all the while in short simple poetry explaining his descent into brain-hunger madness which includes eating his mother and her meaty thighs.

So gross and so engaging! Happy Halloween!

"I tap on the glass. / Beth smashes her face through it. / I call 911."
"Elbows bend one way, / except for this guy screaming. / His bends two ways now."
