OverviewTempers are flaring around Zombillenium, the amusement park run by monsters. When one hires only the witches, vampires, werewolves, and other undead in a region where unemployment is in the double digits, one must expect some friction. But things get particularly ugly when the park’s security is breached from two sides: activists and a very strange visitor, the mother of two peculiar sons that the head of the park seems to remember from somewhere. Presented in Arthur de Pins’s trademark, tongue-in-cheek black humor, this is a stunning beautiful, fully painted graphic novel that plays on that traditional horror genre.
Reviews“With its humor, clever pacing, and unique approach to the monster narrative, de Pins’s tale throws zombie fans some fresh meat.” —Publishers Weekly on Zombillenium: Gretchen
“A wonderfully freakish ride. Highly imaginative.” —NY Journal of Books on Zombillenium: Gretchen
“Zombillenium is a hoot from start to finish, with funny situations, great characters, witty dialogue, and art that is utterly gorgeous.” —Marc Mason, Comics Waiting Room, on Zombillenium: Gretchen
“A clever, horror-themed riot. A really fun graphic novel, and you realize that when you open to the first page and see a bored-looking Goth girl riding a skateboard on top of a broom. Sold. The characters all have distinct personalities, and at least some of them are bound to grow on you by the end. Arthur de Pins has excellent comedic timing and creates great comedic expressions. A real find!” —MTV Geek on Zombillenium: Gretchen
“Whatever dark dealings you think go on behind the doors and in the underground tunnels of Disneyworld, they’ve got nothing on the secrets of Zombillenium and its mysterious proprietor.” —William Kulesa, NJ.com, on Zombillenium: Gretchen
