Recorded Attacks

ORGANISE BEFORE THEY RISE! Max Brooks, the world’s leading zombie authority, reveals how other eras and cultures have dealt with – and survived – the ancient viral plague. From the Stone Age to the information age, the undead have threatened to engulf the human race. They’re coming. They’re hungry. And only the prepared will survive.

This is the graphic novel that fans demanded featuring major zombie attacks across human history: on the African savannas, against the legions of ancient Rome, and on the high seas alongside Francis Drake. Complete with eye-popping artwork that pulsates with the grisly faces of the undead, Recorded Attacks is an essential part of the World War Z collection.

World War Z

It began with rumours from China about another pandemic. Then the cases started to multiply and what had looked like the stirrings of a criminal underclass, even the beginning of a revolution, soon revealed itself to be much, much worse.

Faced with a future of mindless man-eating horror, humanity was forced to accept the logic of world government and face events that tested our sanity and our sense of reality. Based on extensive interviews with survivors and key players in the ten-year fight against the horde, World War Z brings the finest traditions of journalism to bear on what is surely the most incredible story in the history of human civilisation.

Read the original cult novel that propelled the zombie genre into the mainstream – now a blockbuster film and game.
