Boom! Studios has published Zombie Tales, Volume One, a comics-anthology of short zombie stories, featuring the best of the best from Boom Studios past zombie story books Zombie Tales #1, Zombie Tales: Oblivion, and Zombie Tales: The Dead.

Cory Doctorow from Boing Boing reviewed this anthology on August 23, 2007:

“…[I]t’s a fine showcase for the genre, exploring the zombie myth from every angle. From the religious — “For Pete’s Sake,” about the Mother Church’s connection to zombiism — to the comic — “Four out of Five,” which explains the connection between oral hygiene and zombie outbreaks, Zombie Tales runs the gamut. Every story in here is good, and some are GREAT, like John Rogers’s “Daddy Smells Different,” and they’re mostly in the vein of the best of the Twilight Zone stories, punchy little tales with surprising twist endings, and like the Twilight Zone, the anthology’s strength is its breadth. Zombie Tales’ artists and writers work in a variety of styles, and the net effect is a kind of tour of the afterlife and all that it means to us.”

I can’t wait to check this out, since I haven’t had the honor of reading any of the comics included in this anthology. If you still aren’t convinced, take a look at the detailed review of and commentary on specific stories provided by Zombos Closet of Horror.
