There’s something about zombies and comic books that just works every time. Sometimes twice.

The new ZOMBIE TALES Omnibus from Boom! Studios includes my gangster-zombie story “The Last Hit,” which appeared in the late lamented title a few years back. Superbly illustrated by Aritz Eiguren, this 8-pager combines Night of the Living Dead with The Sopranos in a most gruesome and gory style.

ZOMBIE TALES was one of Boom!’s early successes–and the omnibus preserves the greatness of the original series. It features some stellar work from such writers as Mark Waid (IRREDEEMABLE, KINGDOM COME), John Rogers (Leverage, Transformers), William Messner-Loebs (THE FLASH, THE MAXX), Brian Augustyn (JLA: YEAR ONE, B.P.R.D.), role-playing game master Monte Cook, Karl Kesel (FANTASTIC FOUR, SUPERMAN), Michael Alan Nelson (28 DAYS LATER), Ian Brill (DARKWING DUCK), Tom Peyer (THE FLASH), Pierluigi Cothran (HEROES webcomic), Bryce Carlson (WALL•E), plus art from the likes of Andy Kuhn (FIREBREATHER), Keith Giffen (O.M.A.C., LEGION OF SUPER-HEROES), Jon Schnepp (Venture Brothers, Metalocalypse), Toby Cypress (KILLING GIRL), and more.

Yes, the “and more” includes Yours Truly. 🙂
