Those who don’t learn from history are condemned to repeat it.

From the Stone Age to the information age, the undead have threatened to engulf the human race. They’re coming. They’re hungry. Don’t wait for them to come to you!

This is the graphic novel the fans demanded: major zombie attacks from the dawn of humanity. On the African savannas, against the legions of ancient Rome, on the high seas with Francis Drake . . . every civilization has faced them. Here are the grisly and heroic stories–complete with eye-popping artwork that pulsates with the hideous faces of the undead. Organize before they rise!

Scripted by the world’s leading zombie authority, Max Brooks, Recorded Attacks reveals how other eras and cultures have dealt with–and survived–the ancient viral plague. By immersing ourselves in past horror we may yet prevail over the coming outbreak in our time.

An illustrated version of the recorded attacks that make up the last part of the survival guide. It does not contain all of the accounts from the guide but has most of the major ones. The art was great and fit well with the stories. It also reminds me a lot of the art done by Burne Hogarth because of how the shading was done. Overall fun but not an essential read however it is fun to see Brooks' zombies drawn to life . . . or would that be death?

Vivid and finely detailed black and white drawings. Deadly serious about it's subject matter - great fun.

Nicely presented comic book. All stories are great, although I missed a bit more depth.

ZSG: Recorded Attacks is a beautifully-crafted chronicle of how far back zombies have infiltrated human history. The black-and white illustrations manage to capture the horrendous moments without sickening my stomach too much (imagine if it was in full-color!), although sometimes it got a little graphic in terms of spewing entrails.Max Brooks has really outdone himself - or maybe he simply gathered all those delicious zombie tales and spun them together into a graphic novel of epic proportions. Whatever it is, I really got a kick out of ZSG: Recorded Attacks and how clever some of these stories were (unless they're absolutely true, then how absolutely spine-tingling they were!).

Max Brooks' "Recorded Attacks" is a visual appendix to his "Zombie Survival Guide". In that book, references are made to previous outbreaks hundreds of years ago, and this collection of illustrated stories details some of those outbreaks, going as far back as 60,000 B.C. in Katanda, Central Africa through an archipelago discovered by the pirate Francis Drake in 1579 where natives took their sick to be given "eternal life" to a more modern account in Joshua Tree National Park in 1992. Brooks' tales are quite intriguing and entertaining, but what makes this graphic collection stand out are the grotesquely detailed creatures from illustrator Ibraim Roberson. His images of rotting, walking corpses with deep bite marks and entrails leaking from stomachs almost drip and ooze off the page. They're wonderfully creepy and make this one of the better zombie graphic collections on the market.

This graphic novel illustrates a selection of the "Recorded Attacks" from The Zombie Survival Guide, one of my favorite parts of the original book. It doesn't add any new stories and in most cases I wouldn't say the illustrated format adds much, though there are a couple of exceptions. My favorite in that regard was the 1862 Caribbean incident; the graphics added considerably to the impact of the story in my opinion. The artwork throughout the book is quite good.One thing I am deeply disappointed by is the lack of accreditation for the artist. I see there are different covers with Ibraim Roberson's name on the cover, but my copy lacks his name on the cover or the title page. The small print crediting him for "illustrations" is hardly appropriate for the level of his contribution.

Interesting compilation of zombie attacks "recorded" throughout history. Exquisitely detailed drawings and text tie zombie attacks to major events in history--like Emperor Hadrian building the wall at the Scottish border to hold off invading zombies from the north or the Japanese attempting to build an army of zombies to attack China.
