    This book ispraiseworthy for its ambition and uniqueness than its quality, although there are some good parts.The main part of the magazine, the story of Simon Garth, AKA the guy who became a lifeless corpse who does what other people want, is pretty fun to read Well, only when Steve Gerber is still writing him, but luckily he survives most of the book It builds up some tension about what will happen to the Zombie, while otherwise mixing social commentary how is this guy so evil This book ispraiseworthy for its ambition and uniqueness than its quality, although there are some good parts.The main part of the magazine, the story of Simon Garth, AKA the guy who became a lifeless corpse who does what other people want, is pretty fun to read Well, only when Steve Gerber is still writing him, but luckily he survives most of the book It builds up some tension about what will happen to the Zombie, while otherwise mixing social commentary how is this guy so evil like 200 times every issue and comic book violence Very similar to his work on Man Thing , which I recommend I REALLY loved the back up comic...

    For all those folks out there like myself who have had a steady diet of the Romero zombies in both movies and in print this very sizeable compendium that covers the arc of Simon Garth, who is cursed to walk the earth as a voodoo resurected zombie, this gives you a different slant on the whole walking dead thing We are given the entire progression of the somewhat free willed zombie he wears a necklace that has a twin, whoever possesses it controls him, but at certain times he can resist its For all those folks out there like myself who have had a steady diet of the Romero zombies in both movies and in print this very sizeable compendium that covers the arc of Simon Garth, who is cursed to walk the earth as a voodoo resurected zombie, this gives you a different slant on the whole walking dead thing We are given the entire progression of the somewhat free willed zombie he wears a necklace that has a twin, whoever possesses it controls him, but at certain times he can resist its pow...

    Una sequenza di storie decisamente intriganti anche oggi, spesso ottimamente disegnate da gente come John Buscema e Pablo Marcos.Lo zombie quello classico, niente a che vedere con la pessima roba che passa la moda odierna Voodoo, controllo dei morti, donne in pericolo, avventura e macabro.
