A zombie plague is sweeping the planet and humans are reduced to food on two fronts. On one are hordes of zombies and their hunger for fresh meat, on the other are vampires and their bloodlust. The story is told from a POV of an alpha vampire and that way we gain insight into their true nature: they’re self-important, narcissistic, spoiled and manipulating. Their hatred and disgust with humans is calculated and in that sense somehow even worse than anything zombies can dish out. To zombies, we’re just a free-for-all buffet but the vampires’ toying and manipulation is pure evil.

They join the war between humans and zombies only when their survival is on the line. Only when their source of blood is diminishing rapidly and they face extinction do they join to protect humans.

Vampires are the type of villains we love to hate. They’re well-written and I couldn’t help but feel disgust and pity for them, even if they’re our superiors. I could sense a moral awakening in one of the vampires as the story unfolded. Maybe not enough to hope for her survival but enough to make me want to come back for volume 2.

I had to recalibrate my expectations for this book: I loved the historical background and the story of vampires through different eras. I dug the detached, almost journalistic story-telling. I stayed for the carnage and action.

'The Extinction Parade, Volume 1' by Max Brooks has a big name behind it, but it never really made me care about the overly vain main characters.

When zombie outbreaks start happening, the subdead (zombies) start eating the undead's (vampires) food supply. At first this is a hoot for the vampires because the zombies completely ignore them as a food source and they can roam freely. Eventually, the humans start becoming scarcer and this becomes a problem. Or I assume it will because the promo copy I got only included the first half of the graphic novel (which collects issues 1-5 of the series), but I ran out of interest before I ran out of pages. Who am I supposed to feel empathy for? The zombies are mindless hordes of eating machines. The vampires are hyperviolent and act like spoiled rich kids. The humans are mostly background characters to be eaten or drained or whatever. Maybe the second half would make me care a bit more or future issues will.

I loved World War Z by Max Brooks because of the sympathetic and all too human characters in it. That is lacking here. The art also felt a little uneven to me. There were pages I liked, then sometimes the characters seemed overly gangly. I felt disappointed.

I was given a review copy of this graphic novel by Diamond Book Distributors and NetGalley in exchange for an honest review. Thank you for allowing me to review this graphic novel.

I received this as a copy for review.

World War Z redefined the Zombie genre for me. Extinction Parade takes it one step further, by introducing a secondary supernatural creature: the vampire. In this volume Brooks sets up an epic battle of zombie vs. vampire and the winner maintains the right to hunt and feed on the dwindling human population. It’s a riotous bloodbath with gore and violence. The art is beautiful, and something that I’m drawn to when I’m looking for graphic novels to get into. The story line is something different and I’m interested to see where it goes in further volumes.

The aspect of vampires v. zombies is something that I’ve thought about–especially since both beings at their core are reanimated corpses. I found it fun to read and to see the differences between the two. The vampires that are portrayed in this book are what I consider traditional vampires. Strong, badass and rather nasty when it comes down to it. I am intrigued by the vampire’s caretaker and I am going to grab later volumes of this to figure out the story line that’s happening there.
