Straight Up George Romero Zombie Guide On The Way

Given his cinematic prominence, it wouldn’t be out of turn to say that everyone writing zombie comics today owes a huge chunk of their mythology to the ideas in George Romero’s horror films. That’s why it should be interesting to see what kind of science the filmmaker drops his own zombie guide, “The Living Dead” in July of 2010.

Titles like Robert Kirkman’s “The Walking Dead” and Max Brook’s “The Zombie Survival Guide,” “World War Z” and subsequent comic book tie-in “The Zombie Survival Guide: Recorded Attacks,” all creatures feature based more or less on the Romero Zombie, an undead human that can only be stopped by destroying its brain.

To learn more about this kind of zombie, readers can check out the entire first issue of “The Walking Dead” for free online here.

Romero’s own book seems set to cover a lot of the same territory as Brooks’ “The Zombie Survival Guide,” explaining zombie biology and humankind’s reaction to it. Still, what’s official is official, so fans will likely be interested in what the father of the pop culture phenomenon has to say.
