Night of the Living Dead is back this Halloween in their new ongoing series, Aftermath. The epidemic is still taking place in the retro 70′s, and this time it’s spanning from the shores of California to the glitz and glamour of a bolstering Las Vegas.
The main protagonist is a senators daughter turned punk rock lead singer of a zombie based band, The Creeping Flesh. Of course with a zombie apocalypse taking place, it’s hard to decipher their hardcore fan based who coincidentally dress up as zombies, and their real flesh eating counterparts. Confusion ensues and thus begins her escape from Hollywood and trek to her father who’s living it up in Vegas.
The tone of Night of the Living Dead: Aftermath isn’t what I’ve come to expect from the over the top series. It’s more serious, less B-movie-ish that I’ve come to love from the series. The beginning of the book in fact made me almost mistake it for Crossed, some sexual deviation that soon changed to roleplay. And the all around lack of breasts, beautiful boobies that always seem to greet me in the zombie filled pages. There are of course a “pair”, but while being eaten by zombies I hardly find anything appealing about that.
Back to the Farm.
