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 . . .
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.Read more ›
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.

Been an Ashley Woods fan for quite some time now. If you enjoy an awesome action graphic novel with a bit of humor then this is your pick. The artwork only is worth the grab.Published on May 27, 2014 by jason a woodberry
