Zombies are everywhere today and not likely to go away any time soon. I, of course, am talking about fictional zombies invading entertainment mediums, but if Max Brooks is to be believed, zombies are indeed real and have been threatening mankind for centuries. All of this is explained in graphic detail, with the help of illustrator Ibraim Roberson, in The Zombie Survival Guide: Recorded Attacks.

Each chapter in the graphic novel, Recorded Attacks, details a bit of history involving zombie attacks. While I know that zombies are not real, Brooks had me questioning if these attacks really could have happened. His historical detail was spot-on, and it made me wonder exactly how much was fact and how much was fiction. This is no easy feat in a genre such as horror in a medium as non-realistic as a graphic novel.

If you are a zombie fan, The Zombie Survival Guide: Recorded Attacks is a must read. Max Brooks is definitely a master of the genre.
