Editorial Reviews

Review

Thoroughly entertaining from start to finish, everything in here was tremendously innovative. I mean, there are only so many things you can do with zombies. Simply put, it's the best anthology I've read in quite a while. --Kevin Bramer, Optical Sloth

Jerome Gaynor (ed.), Bogus Dead (Alternative Comics, 2002)

I've been trying to hunt down a copy of Bogus Dead for a few years now, so when I saw one at my local Half Price Books a couple of days ago, I snapped it up. (My library's catalog still swears they have a copy, but no one seems to be able to find it. This is not an uncommon thing with my library.) It's been long enough that I can't remember where I first heard about it, but I loved the idea--a bunch of graphic novelists giving short-short takes on the zombie phenomenon. And in some cases, I love the execution. You have to expect with anthologies that there's going to be some variation in the quality of the submissions, and such is the case here, but the best of them are truly wonderful. You'll never see bad work from Kevin Huizenga, for example, and Ariel Bordeaux turns in a piece that's all kinds of fun. If the entire book had been as good as those, it would have been a shoo-in for my best reads of the year. They're not, of course, but there's nothing here that's out-and-out bad. Zombie otaku will probably nitpick at some of the pieces of canon that get shoved to the side, especially in the opening story, but it's all in good fun. ***

Don't listen to these curmudgeons, these squares, when they knock
this really fun anthology. A cast of mini-comic greats takes on
"zombies" as the theme and have a lot of fun in the process.If you are excpecting "serious" horror go elswhere; the average page-count of each story would not allow even a supercartoonist to
get in depth here.This book may be for fans of indie comics only, however, as these other reviews by people who have no experience with indie comics may attest to.

0 of 1 people found the following review helpful By Daniel V. Reilly VINE VOICE on October 4, 2002
Format: Paperback
Spinning off of the premise of the horror classic "Night of the Living Dead", Bogus Dead presents a few dozen similarly-themed short stories by some of the brightest lights in Indy Comics. Some of the stories work quite well, most don't work at all. I found the book to be a torturous read, and the handful of truly inspired stories aren't enough to earn a recommendation. Give it a quick skim before buying to see if it's your cup of tea. I was very disappointed.....
