"Walking Dead is still a quality read about the emotional toll a zombie apocalypse has on the human spirit, but this is a zombie book that doesn't forget to put the bite into its story."

-- Ain't It Cool News

"…if you're a fan of shows like Heroes, The Nine, and Lost, you'll like the way this book tells the tale of a city coming to grips with a zombie invasion. It's kind of cool mixing TV and Comic Books together on paper rather than on television."
