Superheroes vs Zombies
“ALL OF US TRY TO CHEAT DEATH. I WAS JUST BETTER PREPARED TO DO IT THAN MOST FOLKS.” In the years since the wave of living death swept the globe, St. George and his fellow heroes haven’t just kept Los Angeles’s last humans alive — they’ve created a real community, a bustling town that’s spreading beyond its original walls and swelling with new refugees. But now one of the heroes, perhaps the most powerful among them, seems to be losing his mind. The implacable enemy known as Legion has found terrifying new ways of using zombies as pawns in his attacks. And outside the Mount, something ancient and monstrous is hell-bent on revenge. As Peter Clines weaves these elements together in yet another masterful, shocking climax, St. George, Stealth, Captain Freedom, and the rest of the heroes find that even in a city overrun by millions of ex-humans, there’s more than one way to come back from the dead.
FOR USE IN SCHOOLS AND LIBRARIES ONLY. Stealth. Gorgon. Regenerator. Cerberus. Zzzap. The Mighty Dragon. They were heroes, using their superhuman abilities to make Los Angeles a better place. Then the plague of living death spread around the globe. Billions died, civilization fell, and the city of angels was left a desolate zombie wasteland. Now, a year later, the Mighty Dragon and his companions protect a last few thousand survivors in their film-studio-turned-fortress, the Mount. Scarred and traumatized by the horrors they've endured, the heroes fight the armies of ravenous ex-humans at their citadel's gates, lead teams out to scavenge for supplies--and struggle to be the symbols of strength and hope the survivors so desperately need. But the hungry ex-humans aren't the only threats the heroes face.Former allies, their powers and psyches hideously twisted, lurk in the city's ruins. And just a few miles away, another group is slowly amassing power . . . led by an enemy with the most terrifying ability of all.

There are multiple dimensions, and within each are alternate Earths, each with human beings on them, all struggling to live another day; loving, laughing and hating. Some worlds are almost identical to our own, and some are wildly different. This is irrelevant, for in the end, all will be destroyed when the dead rise from their graves, hungry and snarling, to devour the living. But every Earth has its protectors; gleaming beacons of hope and ragtag bands of misfit freaks with powers beyond those of normal men, who fight to preserve life. These heroes have kept evil at bay and maintained the status quo until now. Though powerful beyond measure, can even they stop the Zombie Apocalypse? When the dead swarm over the globe in numbers beyond imagination, and those who die join their ranks, will there be any hope for the rest of us who are merely flesh and blood? Within the pages of this book, the end of the world will challenge these heroes like nothing before. Prepare yourself for the greatest battle of all time, for when superheroes fight zombies, no one is safe.
