   Good Monday all today is Zombie Monday . We are going to review a new graphic novel . ZOMBIES ( A Brief History of Decay ) by Oliver Peru.

                         BOOK BLURB 

A vivid and richly illustrated graphic novel, Zombies offers an action-packed tour through an apocalyptic vision of America.

Mankind is no longer at the top of the food chain. Zombies have taken their place, and nothing can stop them. Is this the end of humanity? Perhaps, but for some it is only the beginning.

Six billion living corpses are all that remains of civilization. Among the few survivors is Sam Coleman, a man who owes his salvation to Smith & Wesson and a little luck. Fleeing Seattle at the onset of the zombie outbreak, he was forced to leave his daughter behind. Yet now that silence has fallen over the city, he believes that she may still be alive. And his conscience serves up a constant reminder that to be human in this grim world is to have hope—and to keep fighting.

                       MY REVIEW 
      I was given this graphic novel for an honest review.  This graphic novel is a fresh new perspective on the zombie genre. Let me introduce you to Sam Coleman who is trying to get out of Seattle at the start of the apocalypse. Armed with only his smith & Wesson he has fought his way out but he has left someone important behind his daughter . Now that it has fallen silent he wonders is she still alive . He wrestles with his conscience and realizes what it is like to fight and still be human in his new grim reality
   Now I am a zombie lover and will read anything to do with them . So when I was offered this book I was so happy . I actually sat down and devoured this book in one sitting . The author takes us on a roller coaster ride . You cheer for our main character Sam and you pray that he will survive and find his daughter . He is a man that you can't help but want to cheer for . You can see how the guilt of him leaving he daughter behind . But you know that when it comes to the apocalypse its everyone for themselves .  Then you see him come to a realization that the grim new world he is the minority and he is going to find his daughter . Which I will tell you to read the book to find out . Yes I am just that mean .
    The author uses the Pacific North West as the setting of his zombie story . Which to me is a nice change cause it seems all the zombie stories seem to be based in New York or Los Angeles.    The author kept a steady pace through out the story and the action was good . There is gore when the zombies are blown up and shot but that is true in all zombie stories . But the characters are so much more human compared to some books . They are people trying to survive anyway they can . This was a nice good fast read for me the story was set a steady pace and the graphics are well drawn  and do the book justice .  I would recommend this book to anyone who loves zombies . If you love TWD  you will enjoy this book . So check it out . I have given it 5 stars .
