  1. From Booklist

    Posted by Unknown on May 03 2010

    Although graphic novels featuring marauding zombies aren’t in short supply, this nightmarish tale from newcomers Tapalansky and Alex Eckman-Lawn takes the genre to a new level of artistry. When an epidemic of grisly murders afflicts the normally sedate city of Park Falls, retired police detective Derrick Peters is sent by an unnamed source to investigate. Despite tooth marks around the victims’ wounds, a pronouncement by one of the city’s eccentrics that zombies are responsible only arouses Peters’ skepticism. After a little digging, Peters’ main suspects instead become the former employees of a recently closed pharmaceutical operation, where a novel treatment for Alzheimer’s was being tested. Yet as the body count rises, and Peters starts shooting ravenous killers on sight, the true cause of the outbreak becomes more and more elusive. Eckman-Lawn’s avant-garde illustrations embody a hybrid of mixed media, including altered photographs, blurred sketches, and Post-it notes. The end result is montage of unsettling imagery that will haunt readers’ dreams for days. --Carl Hays
