WI – World War Z Author Speaks

mb120313

Author Max Brooks speaks about “10 Lessons for Surviving a Zombie Attack” at the University of Wisconsin on Tuesday, December 3, 2013 at 7:30:00 PM!

Max Brooks is considered by many to be one of the world’s foremost Zombie preparedness experts. According to the Office of Homeland Security, Brooks is the preeminent authority on dispatching the relentless, flesh-eating armies of Zombies that seem to be everywhere these days. The Zombie Survival Guide, Brooks’ first release, is your key to success against the hordes of the undead that may be stalking you right now. Brooks’ New York Times best-seller, World War Z: An Oral History of the Zombie War (2007), has been made into a major motion picture starring Brad Pitt. The book tells the story of the world’s desperate battle against the zombie threat with a series of first-person accounts “as told to the author” by various characters around the world.

NYC – Extinction Parade Signing

mb062713

Writer Max Brooks (World War Z, Zombie Survival Guide) appears at Midtown Comics Downtown on Thursday, June 27th at 6:30 pm for a signing of his new Avatar comic, Extinction Parade #1!

Purchase of Extinction Parade #1 is required to attend the signing.

EXTINCTION PARADE #1
Written by Max Brooks
Art by Raulo Caceres

The best-selling Zombie writer in history finally unleashes an all-new epic for comics! Be ready for the summer’s biggest comic event as millions of zombie fans come looking for with the first chapter of Max Brooks’ Extinction Parade! One of the founders of the zombie renaissance, Max Brooks has sold millions of books in dozens of languages. His first book The Zombie Survival Guide not only singlehandedly jump-started the zombie prep subculture, it’s graphic novel companion Recorded Attacks debuted as #1 on the New Times Bestseller list. His second book World War Z (already a multi-million copy NYT bestseller in its own right) has been adapted by Brad Pitt into what is sure to be one of the biggest blockbuster movies of 2013.

Now Brooks takes the zombie genre to a whole new level with his new comic series Extinction Parade featuring stunningly rendered art by super-star Raulo (Crossed, Captain Swing) Caceres. Building on the seed of his hit 2010 short story, Brooks has crafted a truly epic series spanning over 250 pages. Not only does Extinction Parade’s multilayered depth and meticulously researched detail raise it to the standard of his previous work, it also introduces fans to an entirely new, fresh and terrifying subgenre: Vampires Vs Zombies.

As humans wage their loosing fight versus the hoards of the subdead, a frightening realization sets in with the secretive Vampire race: our food is dying off. This is the story of Vampires decent into all-out war with the mindless hungry hordes of the zombie outbreak as humanity tries to survive them all. Three species in mortal conflict. This is how a species dies. Available with Regular, Wraparound, End of a Species and Bloodwashed Retailer Incentive covers by Raulo Caceres. Also, available with a special black Leather cover, limited to just 1000 copies!
