” There is a story that is passed down through the ages. This tale of the undead, arisen to devour the living, leaving nothing but a wasteland behind them. Yes, that is what you find here. Contained within the pages you will be taken on a twisted ride through the end of the world. From docile day dwelling zombies to a side line view from space as the world falls apart and back to one beginning of it all. When you reach the end you will truly come to understand our, Dead Future.

Dead Future is a zombie outbreak anthology, with contribution from writers and artists all over the world.”

This book has a really unique look and feel to it. Maybe it was just because the first story was done with photography, but it was kind of nice. A good way to separate itself from other anthologies out there. The two other shorts were very well done too. Both did a great job of capturing the atmosphere that the story conveyed. Overall this is a nice looking issue that offers something different.

Story: 3.8 out of 5
I love some zombie stories, I really do. What i noticed here were three very original takes that I had not seen done yet. Each story had good dialogue and did a nice job completing itself with a short amount of pages. I really liked Major Tom because it’s one of those stories that makes you wonder what would happen, and of course it has the nice ironic ending.

Dying Breath: 3.8 out of 5
This is a really cool anthology of zombie stories. From all the different variations I have read, these are pretty original. I loved that idea with the photograph style, makes it kind of like a movie. What it all comes down to is this, if you like zombie stories check it out. It can easily stand out from some of the other ones that are out there.
