Every year, publishers and movie studios churn out piles of new zombie yarns, but none have rivaled the originality of this tale about a reanimated priest from an ancient cult and the zombie outbreak he creates in order to sacrifice mankind to his dark gods. Dark horror and high adventure mingle as a team of heroes race against an unstoppable evil bent on the end of mankind.
The end of the world is near. The dead walk the earth and feed on the flesh of the living. The remnants of humanity struggle for survival in a sickening nightmare that has become reality. The birth of a terrifying new world is at hand. Zombie World, the comic-book series that set the standard for comics of the undead is back in a massive trade paperback. Bob Fingerman and Tommy Lee Edwards take us into the darkened subway tunnels of New York, where the rats aren't the only things that bite, in the critically-acclaimed "Winter's Dregs." Kelley Jones spins his own twisted tale of love and the undead in "Eat Your Heart Out". A family's Christmas gathering has a few unexpected arrivals in Gordon Rennie and Gary Erskine's "Home For The Holidays." And the apocalypse proves to be more horrifying than anyone ever imagined in Pat Mills and J. Deadstock's "Tree of Death."
