“The dynamic duo offers a plethora of pop-culture savvy ways to rid the world of pesky walkers including Nerd Rage, Red Shirt and Axe –the body spray, which can be even more deadly than the weapon/tool. The book is loaded with tongue-in-cheek snark and is a great gift book –it’s a quick read, and one that you’ll return to again and again, because you’ll want to pull the book out and show your friends. The book is good for laughs…Yeah, zombies are mainstream now—but 101 Ways to Kill a Zombie is all about pointing that out and laughing at it.” ~Watchareading.com
“A lighthearted and meta take on the genre, each zombie death is rooted in traditional zombie lore, new zombie tropes, and executed through humor and fun.” ~Midtowncomics
