The Returning #1 cover by Andrea MuttiThe Returning #1
Written by Jason Starr
Illustrated by Andrea Mutti
Colored by Vladimir Popov
Lettered by Ed Dukeshire
Cover by Frazier Irving
Boom! Studios
Release Date: March 12, 2014
Cover Price: $3.99

It’s no secret that modern readers still enjoy zombie tales. You know, mindless undead shambling around with their next meal their only priority? (The zombies, not the readers!) Jason Starr shakes up this well-established genre and steers it in a new direction with The Returning from Boom! Studios.

Instead of falling victim to a viral outbreak or the after effects of a passing comet, the undead of The Returning are everyday people who experience near death experiences (NDE) and are then resuscitated. This common occurrence somehow changes the person’s psyche and makes them prone to extreme acts of violence—they are then labeled as one of the Changed. Our protagonist, Beth, awakens from a coma following a car accident and finds that, even though she feels the same as before, her life is suddenly turned upside down because of the NDE she experienced.

Cast: Max Brooks, George A. Romero, Simon Pegg, Robert Kirkman
Red Letter Media
Not Rated | 81 Minutes

Directed by Alexandre O. Philippe (The People vs. George Lucas), Doc of the Dead delves deep into the evolution of the zombie sub-genre in film and literature.

The film, which features interviews with zombie authors, filmmakers, and scholars like Max Brooks, George A. Romero, and Robert Kirkman, explores the impact and influence of the living dead on pop culture.

With the participation of YouTubers and indie filmmakers, Doc of the Dead also investigates the possibility and aftermath of a real-life zombie outbreak.

Simon Pegg, Tom Savini, Stuart Gordon, Bruce Campbell, and other horror and science-fiction icons provide commentary on our fascination with zombies while recognizing the inherent use of metaphor and social commentary in the sub-genre.

Time Zombie Daylight Saving Time

Well-y, well-y, welly, well. It’s that time again! Time for my best blood, the soul-sucking, brain-eating, clock-watching, Time Zombie (Benedict Zombiepatch, if yer nasty), to make his way ’round to all those places that still abide by that antiquated old candle-saving trick of the clock: Daylight Saving Time!

I know you all think you’re moving your clock ahead for some logical, beneficial reason, but that just isn’t the case. Old Ben means to make a meal of you (so do I, but we’ll talk about that later), and if you don’t set your clock ahead, trouble’s a-comin’.

Written by Kevin Eastman and Tom Skulan
Illustrated by Kevin Eastman and Eric Talbot
Colored by Ronda Pattison
Cover by Kevin Eastman
IDW Publishing
Release Date: October 23, 2013
Cover Price: $3.99

There is perhaps nothing more frightening than zombies — except for zombies with full awareness who can speak and carry weapons. Written by Kevin Eastman and Tom Skulan with illustrations from Eastman and Eric Talbot, comes IDW’s Zombie War #1. Find out my thoughts on this horror-filled comic below.

Hundreds of UFO sightings are being reported across the globe; dead soldiers are rising from their graves all around the world, amassing an army of undead militants. As cities begin to burn from all out war — littered with the bodies of humanity — U.S. Airforce pilot Jina quickly uncovers the truth behind the two sudden and strange occurrences and races against time to prevent further devastation.
