An excerpt from the introduction, “Why I Love Zombies” by “Uncle” Glenny:

I love zombies. I’ve loved them in all their many forms since I was a carpet crawler (or, “youngwun” as they say up in this neck of the woods) when they first shambled into view on our old RCA console tube in the family living room… White Zombie with uber creepy Bela Lugosi working a herd of them on his island plantation… they staggered around, wall-eyed and moaning, powered by weird voodoo rites. There were a host of these sorts of flicks featured on Saturday creature features on the local channels…By the time I reached “tweenhood” I considered myself fairly well acquainted with that particular genre of the undead; through movies of course, but also in no small measure through stacks of comics and the great old Warren magazines of the day: “Creepy, Eerie, Vampirela… The seventies… brought an absolute slew of zombies on the screen. Hammer made the great gothic entry, “Plague of the Zombies,” and the Italian splattermeisters helmed a whole subgenre genre via the creeping dead…Of course George Romero served up the most famous humdinger classic of all in the late sixties… Night of the Living Dead”… This is in no small part due to the phenomenal success of the TV show, “The Walking Dead.” I figure all that deserves a nifty coloring book!

I very much hope you enjoy the book, and know I enjoyed the hell out of dredging it up for you.
