01.22.10 A small jaunt over to the world of graphic novels for a bit. This is a small book illustrating several zombie encounters throughout the world throughout history. I can see why Brooks chose this medium since there's very little written communication (it plays more like the narrated prologue in Magnolia) and more in the pictures. My only qualm is that it's very short (takes about a half hour to read through). The ideas and historical context is great. The black and white illustrations are pretty good... really it's a great little snack of Max Brooks zombie lore. I wonder what he's working on next... I am still hesitant to pick up his Zombie Survival Guide since I heard it's not a novel. "Handbooks" like that are a little hard for me to get through and I keep picturing a "Worst Case Scenario" type deal that's more gimmick than anything else. World War Z was great though.
