The Extinction Parade #1 Review
Max Brooks‘ highly anticipated comic from Avatar is finally here, but was it worth the wait? Max Brooks for those that aren’t familiar is the man that helped you survive the zombie apocalypse with The Zombie Survival Guide and helped fashion Brad Pitt’s new zombie flick with his New York Times Best Seller World War Z. I’ve read both of these books, a few other of Brooks’ attempts at writing comics, The Zombie Survival Guide: Recorded Attacks and his G.I. Joe: Hearts & Minds trades being the two. Everything comes out being brilliantly written, which was to be expected, so The Extinction Parade should be no different.
The Extinction Parade pits humans, zombies, and vampires against each other, although, the vampires don’t exactly see it that way. Vampires see themselves as far superior beings, the zombies and humans are but a sub-class, raging and battling on against one another, unable to understand why one would find it hard to defeat a slow dumb and less methodical opponent. The future isn’t certain for the vampires though, something is brewing in this clash of classes.
You can’t beat Max Brooks’ zombie writing, it can’t be done, you want some amazing writing, then read The Extinction Parade. You want graphic and sloppy zombie art? Read The Extinction Parade. I don’t understand why Raulo Caceres can’t produce quality Crossed artwork for this book. The good thing is you get a fantastic comic, that very well could be a fantastic book, it’s sad the art couldn’t make it that much better aesthetically.
