Here are some early reviews for “The Other Dead”:

“How has this brilliant premise not been done yet? Just when we’re inundated with “zombie this, zombie that,” Ortega, Digger, and Eastman come along with a rip-roaring adventure that provides the most unique spin on the zombie apocalypse in years.”

–Cliff Bleszinski

Creator of Gears of War

The Other Dead has the perfect combination of action, emotional impact, and brooding/building horror. I kept turning the pages to run from the impending doom.”

–Kevin J. Anderson

New York Times bestselling author of the Dan Shamble, Zombie P.I. series.

 

“Driven by a beautifully nasty sense of humor and art that sweats and bleeds, one of the things that really stands out is how perfectly paced it is. Felt like somebody was slowly tightening a screw into my brain and oddly enough, I loved it. Astoundingly good.”

–Robert Ferrigno

New York Times bestselling author of Prayers for the Assassin

“Gleefully gory and subversive with snark–the only problem with this book is that I didn’t come up with the idea first!”

–Hugh Sterbakov

Emmy-nominated writer of Robot Chicken, Freshmen, and City Under the Moon

 

The Other Dead finds space to be itself in a genre where most practitioners stick to the tried and true. Original and genuinely scary.”

–Mike Carey

Eisner Award-winning writer of Unwritten, Suicide Run, and X-Men
