Major Zombie: Love & Loss reviewed in The Star

Major Zombie: Love & Loss graphic novel is reviewed in Malaysia's The Star newspaper on the 4th of March, 2011. The review is by Kaleon Rahan in the weekly Worlds of Wonder column.

Here are a snippet of the review: From Marvel Zombies to The Walking Dead, is there still room for another zombie-franchise? While both Marvel and Image releases are premised in a post-apocalyptic world where zombies are the dominant kind, Major Zombie exists on this equal landscape where he is also humanity’s main protector. The living dead protecting the living concept may take some getting used to, but give it a shot.

In case you feel that this is an effort riding on the curtails of successful zombie-related releases, it isn’t as there is chronological evidence to indicate that Major Zombie is very much original. Lefty’s labour-of-the-living-dead was created in 2003 (same time as the then unknown Walking Dead and two years before Marvel Zombies).
