Max Brooks, author of “World War Z,” is back in undead territory with the vampires versus zombies tale Extinction Parade, an epic horror comic series through Avatar Press.
This massive 250+ page event teams Brooks with super-star illustrator, Raulo Caceres and is scheduled to debut in comic shops worldwide on June 19th, the day before World War Z opens in theaters.
Extinction Parade is Brooks’ first all-original serialized comic book work and is positioned to be an instant genre classic. In a world where the zombie plague has put the human race on the endangered species list, another predatory undead species realizes that to stand by idly means the end of their food supply. Vastly outnumbered by the zombie hordes, vampires descend into all-out subdead war, with humanity caught in the crossfire.
With zombies making world headlines, most recently with the Canadian Parliament and Foreign Affairs Minister proclaiming that “Canada will never become a safe haven for zombies,” Brooks brings his patented approach for dealing with the subdead to Extinction Parade. “I’ve always said, first and foremost, stay calm [during a zombie outbreak]. Surviving a zombie plague is a hell of a lot harder without a cool head,” Brooks said. And his meticulously researched and innovative novels have provided millions with vital advice for would be survivors. But all fans from all walks of life are in for a treat when they see his critical eye for detail turned toward defining vampires in the way he has pioneered for zombies over the last decade.
