o.K. folks I might be a bit behind the times when it come to Ashley Wood's illustrations and Chris Ryall's work BUT the complete Zombies Vs. Robots is the BEST "comic" I've seen in the last 10 or 15 years . . . i d oN'T like zombies and/or vampire crap so this Kindle comik was a first . . . I wish more of the Marvel stuff paid less attention to color and would just get down to producing GOOD drawings . . . stop cluttering up the panels . . . oh, and tell me a story without having to continue it through 20 or 30 issues.

Stop collecting Stan Lee's crap and get this Kindle comik or buy the hard copy version if you gotta hold something while you read.

p.s. I also bought Ashley Wood's book of nudes . . .

One evening, I was stumbling around the interweb and came across Australian artist Ashely Wood's website. His paintings and pen and ink work drew me in right away, with their distinctive treatment of nerd/cool stuff like, well, zombies and robots. Like a lot of my friends, I'm generally fans of both (although not to the extent of getting them tattooed on myself, like some people I know...) -- so the concept of the two facing off in a battle for world domination seemed well worth picking up.

I'm not clear what configuration the original series appeared in, but this edition starts with a three part backstory addressing "Which Came First?" -- the zombies or the robots. The gist of it is that some U.S. government scientists built a kind of time-travel/alternate dimension portal, the use of which resulted in a zombie virus coming back to infect earth. Then comes the two-part Zombies vs. Robots storyline. As the global population is wiped out, the robots find the one uninfected baby and aim to clone it to resurrect their human masters (shades of Y: The Last Man). Alas, the hive intelligence of the zombies has detected the last fresh brain on earth, and it's a battle royale as they seek to break through the robot army to get to it. It's a simple story, but well told, with a good dose of deadpan robot humor. This ends with the last remaining robot "rebooting" the world by launching a nuclear armageddon to wipe out all zombie life. Except that there's this one island of uninfected Amazons... Which introduces the three part Zombies vs. Robots vs. Amazons. Things get zanier and zanier, what with the Amazon orgies, kung fu, beheadings, and the undead minotaur and all... Good times.

Format: Paperback
A trio of scientists (whose enormous egos keep rubbing the others the wrong way) use their government grant to build a trans-dimensional gateway that leads to the future. They bicker over who should go first. The first guy to go dies; the second guy takes a billion dollar suit and makes it back, unintentionally bringing the zombie virus that's wiped out future humanity. Said virus proceeds to wipe out present humanity. Luckily, one of the scientists is a roboticist and has built a large variety of bots who carry on in the absence of their creators. The bots wind up caring for the lone human survivor, a female baby named Lucy.

A later complication arises when it's discovered (after a lone robot wipes out the earth with nukes) that a tribe of Amazonian women are still around on a deserted island somewhere that didn't get nuked. They team up with the lone robot and have a go at stopping the zombies (who survived by being underwater when the bombs dropped) from re-propogating the zombie species with formerly living Amazonians.

The story is more interesting at the beginning but eventually dives into a darkly comic shoot-em-up between a war-bot and the zombies. The scientists with the overinflated senses of self were more interesting and made better satire than the slow march to eventual human obliteration in the rest of the first half of the book. The Zombies vs Robots vs Amazons part of the book came off like exploitation genre pulp and left a bad taste in my mouth. At least the zombie minotaur was pretty cool. I'm not sure who I would recommend this book to and I probably won't reread it. It's a shame because it seems like an awesome premise.

I am pretty new to comics, but when I saw the artwork in this book I had to check it out. The was a really quick read, I read it in a couple of hours with interruptions. The writing, I would say, isn't too in depth, but it is a story about mindless zombies and mindless robots fighting each other. There was a chance to build more story when the Amazons were introduced, but there still wasn't much to them either. With all that being said, the artwork is what what makes this book great. It was just a fun read. I would suggest that anyone pick it up if you like dirty gritty artwork in comics.

While I had a great time reading this, I feel that the average comic book reader may not appreciate the somewhat non-linear story telling and rough sketch-y art form that have become synonymous with Ashley Wood's works. If you are familiar with his work you probably know what I mean. I believe a good primer for people interested in his work is probably World War Robot.
