Book Review: Zombies Ate My Headlines

With a forward by Randy Baumann (DVE) and an introduction by Rick Seback(Things that Aren’t There Anymore, The Strip Show), Zombies ate my Headlines is the first book published by the brilliant minds at Carbolic Smoke Ball.

So much praise has already been heaped onto this book, I really can’t add much more.  The book is a great read, I was laughing with just about every page.  The pace, was very well done as well, a good mix of longer stories, shorter snippets and even a few photo and caption articles as well.

The only bad thing I can say about the book isn’t about the content, but the physical book itself.  However it was printed, the type goes very close to the spine, making it difficult to read some articles.  A small gripe, but otherwise, a fantastic read that should not be missed.

The great thing is that even though it is Pittsburgh-centric, anyone, from any city, can pick the book up and get a good laugh.

More information about the book here, and it can be picked up at Barnes & Noble, Amazon, John Beth Booksellers, Bradley’s, or from the CSB website (purchased copies from CSB will be signed by one of the authors).
