Zombies are the New Vampires: A Book List II

Book cover for Triumph of The Walking Dead: Robert Kirkman's Zombie Epic on Page and Screen edited by James LowderIn the first part of this list (Zombies are the New Vampires: Book List), I argued that while vampires used to be the most popular horror monster, zombies have risen up in the last decade and are trying to claim the most popular spotlight.

Why, even in the realm of non-fiction, zombies appear to eclipse the vampire non-fiction titles.

What are zombies doing in non-fiction? An author can write about a zombie television series, about the philosophy behind zombies or a manual on how to survive a zombie outbreak.

In the realm of graphic novels, zombies seem to be the darling monster.

In the last few years these monsters have shambled their way into more, and more popular, series than the vampires.

I’ve updated and improved this old list. A few of the books originally on this list are no longer available through the Clevnet Library system and plenty more have been published since.

It’s still not an exhaustive list — just a place to start.

Due to the increased length of this list, I’ve broken it up into parts. Today we’ll look at zombies in non-fiction and graphic novels.
