Hot off the heels of an announcement of a TV series adaptation, Max Brooks follows up his grisly zombies versus vampires series with a whole new volume! The son of Mel Brooks has been doing wonders for the current zombie world thanks to his work in World War Z. He doesn’t show any signs of slowing down either, so hit the jump to find the whole press release from Avatar and just what to expect when the new series drops in July.
From Avatar Press:
Extinction Parade: War in July. Brooks has been a driving force behind the resurgence in zombie interest over the last decade with his seminal prose works The Zombie Survival Guide and World War Z. Fans have flocked to his novels and panel presentations to get the latest undead survival techniques from the charismatic master scholar.
Avatar Press is pleased to announce this horrifying continuation of Brooks’ groundbreaking series chronicling the breaking point for vampires as the privileged aristocratic race of immortals is finally forced to face a critical realization – that the human race won’t solve the zombie plague without their aid. And when these powerful undead creatures are finally mobilized the violent clash of Vampires and Zombies is summed up best in the new chapter’s subtitle: War.
Brooks explains the philosophy behind exposing the weaknesses of the vampire race in Extinction Parade: War, “Every individual human being knows life is hard. Sooner or later adversity’s gonna come knocking. But if you’re a vampire you’ve had a thousand years of comfortable joy. You’re not ready! You don’t have those survival skills.”

About Extinction Parade:
In a world where the zombie plague has put the human race on the endangered species list, another predatory undead species realizes that to stand by idly means the end of their food supply.

This series further examines Brooks’ fascination with the lethal races of the undead and brings his unique voice to comics at a time when horror fiction is at an all-time high in popularity.
