Excellent graphic treatment of the classic Night Of The Living Dead movie, including some decent backstory of the characters trapped in the farmhouse.
Very highly recommended! Sep 03, Quentin Wallace rated it really liked it. Prequel stories leading up to the original Night of the Living Dead film. Graphic violence and nudity, much moreso than the original movie of course. Still not bad for fans of the series.

I think my expectations for this were way too high especially since I'm a horror fan, and the original movie is firmly in my top Anyway, it's high on intestines, low on plot. The art quality really takes a nosedive in chapter 6 too, no idea why I almost put I think my expectations for this were way too high especially since I'm a horror fan, and the original movie is firmly in my top I almost put it down then, because I couldn't tell the humans from the zombies anymore.
On the plus side, I liked the chapter written from the little girl's point of view. It was surprisingly evocative, and the only reason I carried on reading. May 28, Matt rated it did not like it. A sleazy prequel, sequel, etc. I read this because I had heard it shows Ben's story before he arrived at the farmhouse, and that was the best part of the book. The rest of it was devoid of what made Romero's films special: commentary on society issues of race, class, consumerism, etc.

Opening with a campfire zombie attack, we are introduced to a few of the film characters arriving at Beekman's Diner. Readers discover the fate of the elderly woman in her townhouse, the young girl zombie, an attack at a drive-in, the fall of the radio station, and the New York City infection.

Having seen the film in bits and pieces, I understand that this volume is supposed to explore the film characters. Sadly, this books does little more than expound on scenes of torn intestines and violent deaths, with shots of female nudity designed to titillate the younger male readers. This Night of the Living Dead is just lifeless. Aug 20, Mike rated it liked it.
Night of the Living Dead Graphic Novel -Book Review - DecayMag.
I wanted the story to be stronger - live up to the now-classic tale's larger-than-life reputation. Don't get me wrong - it's still good stuff and it fills in fun details e. Other chapters were pretty much generic zombie fare, nothing exceptional, no particular reason why these improve or complement the Living Dead story that makes the combined whole better. Dec 13, BookCupid rated it liked it Shelves: graphic. Not gory enough for me :P Seriously, the story was violent but I didn't get the rush I usually get when something bad is about to happen.

It was more like: Look! There is a zombie. It's coming toward us Should we run?
When I read the word prequel, I thought it would finally explain how zombies became zombies. Apr 26, Javier Balderas rated it it was amazing. Has a great art and drawing in the the way that one can't put down. The story it self is good enough to get your mind into the story. If you expect something like the walking dead you might find it here but has more of action and gore then what the walking dead would show you not saying the walking dead has lot of gore and violence.
This comic is recommended greatly.
