A new all-ages series! In this first issue, Doctor Archibald Zombie takes his faithful assistant Marigold Murray camping, in celebration of her birthday. However, they are immediately attacked by a pack of demons led by Ryan, a spurned suitor hell-bent on taking Marigold’s affection, even if it means Kidnapping Marigold! It is now up to Doctor Zombie to save her from their vile clutches!”
What a horror book will look like if you took a but of Dexter’s Lab, mixed it with Dudley Do-Right and threw in a demon and zombie? What’s that you say? The Adventures of Doctor Zombie of course your so right! There is nothing that the description above leaves out. This book is all ages fun and did I mention that it was writtenby a 9 year old.
Artwork: 4.0 out of 5
There is nothing wrong with the artwork at all. I couldn’t get over how everything was so Cartoon Network. It just felt like I was watching a cartoon. The characters are fun to look at it’s playful and Hell Yes I did the maze on the last page.
Story: 4.0 out of 5
Mackenzie Meredith is 9 years old and she delivers on the story which just feels like it is right out of the cartoons. Doctor Zombie has got to go save his gal from them bad Demons. Sure it plays down to the higher reading levels, but it’s a great well written kids story.
Dying Breath: 4.0 out of 5
Overall what is presented is for the younger crowd, since it was by the younger crowd. From what I see when I go to my LCS they need some nice new books like this one out there. I would give this to my kid any day of the week and I will enjoy it as well. It’s fun, it plays along the typical story lines expect and it’s affordable. Someone call DC Kids and tell them they got some competition.
