About this title:

Synopsis: During the Korean War, three Marines were never accounted for or returned. After 50 years of captivity,they find out that the War has been over for quite some time.

From School Library Journal: Grade 10 Up–An amazingly constructed horror story that operates on several levels of despair and grotesquery, this book is an effectively disturbing and affecting read. During a hurricane and a power outage, all individuals beyond their early 20s die and are reanimated as zombies. Readers follow the slow deterioration of a band of outcasts and counterculture youth who try to survive. The characters are not bright or beautiful, and the fact that they could inherit the Earth is as terrifying as their inevitable deaths. Campbell hits all the right notes with the zombie action, and the scenes of dismemberment and the undeath of loved ones are vivid and terrifying. The artwork is rendered in black and white and red, and the atmosphere intensified by the red wash gives mud, blood, and flesh a dimension that lends additional substance to the earthy, palpable physiques of the characters. Grim, grotesque, and gory, this book will appeal only to a limited and stouthearted audience as most readers wont be able to see beyond the visceral depictions to appreciate the craft of their rendering. But both in terms of artwork and a fine twinning of existential and tangible horrors, this is an exceedingly well-made volume.–Benjamin Russell, The Derryfield School, Manchester, NH
