Author Max Brooks has found himself the new face of Zombie horror with his two best selling books THE ZOMBIE SURVIVAL GUIDE and WORLD WAR Z kind of becoming driving forces in the sub genre. Of course this week bring the big screen adaptation of WORLD WAR Z although I’ve heard that other than the title, it has absolutely nothing to do with the book and out tomorrow is another ambitious project, a comic book titled EXTINCTION PARADE.
