planet Z

One of the craziest things that we have planned for is what to do if ever the world succumbs to the living dead. It's all those zombie movies that made us this paranoid. We've planned what things to bring, the first place where we should go and where to hide.

Volumes 1 & 2

The Walking Dead

The only thing that we've had issues and debated up till now is, what if one gets bitten? Should we shoot whoever is infected or get bitten too and let the infection just take over?

The other day, I started reading "The Walking Dead". A book written by Robert Kirkman. The first copy was released few years back. I had to do a little back reading, but this was good since they came out with hardcovers.

Volumes 3 & 4

The Walking Dead

Before picking the first book, I was a bit skeptic about the whole thing. Thinking that it's your typical zombie stories. And then they announced at SDCC that they were coming out on TV, with a series. And made me wonder, this must be good.

I picked up the first copy, to my surprise, at Wal-Mart. The story picked up early, and made things interesting right away. It focused more on how would a normal person handle a situation where there was no hope at all. That there is no future and would make you think if it's better to be one of the living or the dead.

Volumes 5 & 6

The Walking Dead

Another interesting part would be the wide array of characters. Their personalities and outlook in every given situation. Just ordinary people that was thrown out in a world of chaos.

A must read. I give this a 9 out of 10.

Hahahaha!!! Parang syang comics, but in B&W. And for adult readers, coz there's too much violence.

Readily available sya in any bookstore I think.

Night of the Living Dead was our all time fave namin ni XT. But medyo nakakainis lang.

Zombieland yung latest. Ok din yung 28 Days Later. Medyo realistic.
