Braaaains!

I happen to be a pretty big zombie enthusiast.  Even if I haven’t watched, read, and played every zombie-related thing in the world, I thought that I at least knew what was out there.  And yet, it completely slipped past me that The Walking Dead graphic novels are going to be a show on AMC this October.  (Warning – if you don’t like creepy graphic zombie gore, don’t click this link to the show’s official website.)

If you could use a fix to keep you going until then, we have you covered!  (Not surprisingly, I am nowhere near the only zombie enthusiast at the library.)  Here are two thorough examinations of the library’s collection -  Pittsburgh: City of Bridges, City of Zombies by Amy and Zombie Invasion by MA.   Wes wrote a lovely birthday tribute to George Romero, and specifically mentioned The Walking Dead series in his Graphic Novel post.  The Walking Dead also appeared on Renee’s list of 100  Best Graphic Novels.  On the Carnegie Library’s website, there are two booklists about zombies and a list of movies by George Romero.

And if you’re caught up on the canon and looking for something new, there are currently over 100 books listed under the catalog subject heading Zombies — Fiction, 67 things under Zombies — Comic books, strips, etc., and 36 under Zombie Films.   I can’t vouch for most of these titles personally, so if you check any of them out, let me know what you think!
