The Extinction Parade, Volume 1 by Max Brooks, Raúlo Cáceres (Illustrations)

The actual graphic novel is 160 pages; the Netgalley ARC only gives you the first 84 pages, so that sucked. But from what was available, it’s a pretty good story. The novel is told from the point of view of a vampire and she discusses how in the beginning the zombie epidemic was a good thing, it made it easier for vampires to hunt humans, who are basically ignorant to vampire existence and their only concern is destroying zombies.

The zombies are you standard walking dead, they’re brainless and hungry, no thought process whatsoever, they don’t go after vampires, because they have no pulsing blood. The story is told in the form of a reflective, when it finally dawns upon vampires that the zombie epidemic doesn’t just affect humans it affect them as well.


The story was interesting; the graphics were awesome, they were bloody and gory, total horror show type, so again awesome. Plus the vamps and zombies weren’t sparkly or romanticized so huge bonus.
