i like zombies.

Another font. I am SO inconsistent with my fonts which also reminds me I have to pimp my blog. Who wants to pimp my blog?? Sculpt it. Have a visual feast of it all eh?

Moving on. Zombies. Add that to the plot of the classic novel Pride and Prejudice and you have Pride and Prejudice and Zombies. I am WAY late though. It came out last year around April and I did not know about it. When book-nerding is apart of your activities, you might as well strike it out from your list and hail yourself a sham. My tummy gave a JIGGLE when I saw the book. Allow me to emphasize on the word again. Z-O-M-B-I-E-S. Its only been a month since I stumbled upon the book so I had to do that. Caps lock and shieet. Heh. Was apart of the syllabus in school and in college again so I had a natural zombie-feisty inclination to what can now thus be called a saga?? Haha. Yeah I would have a ball playing a zombie. A zombie is one of my favourite things. 28 Days Later. 28 Weeks Later. Resident Evil and lately, Zombieland. Remember one of the rules in killing a zombie there? Double tap. I was stoked about that.


And now this?? Regency-era England overrun with zombies. Wooohoooo. All hail Quirk Books editor, Jason Rekulak who developed the idea, writer Seth Grahame-Smith and Austen without which this sequel would not be possible and rightfully given credit as co-author. Zombies referred to as "unmentionables" is enough to make my tummy give another serious jiggle. Professional zombie hunters called "reclaimers" which btw is sooo bad-ass. Mode of combat? Shaolin training under highly skilled Chinese and Japanese masters for which trips to the orient have to be made. Ninjas and Zatoichi cane sword?? If you're an avid zombie fan or apart of the literary bandwagon then jump in yeah? And speaking about visual feast... the book contains illustrations by Philip Smiley who has, not surprisingly, illustrated for many major fashion labels including Burberry and Commes des Garcons which is all very "art-holy" for me. Makes you shudder. OK.. The opening is EPIC.. " It is a truth universally acknowledged that a zombie in possession of brains must be in want of more brains. " Remember the original opening?? :D The graphic novel is already published including a video game based on it and apparently has already been purchased by a major film company. There is a prequel too, Pride and Prejudice and Zombies: Dawn of the Dreadfuls which I will definitely get my puny hands on including the graphic novel. Don't get me started on the movie just yet. I end here for this whole post will turn into something of an incoherent ramble of  "zombie mayhem" and here are a few shots of the book.






How cool is this? Ms Elizabeth Bennet in combat with a zombie.


Mr Darcy gallantly shooting away at the "unmentionables"


Can you see those ninjas?? Elizabeth and Darcy ninja-ing the hell out of each other.


Elizabeth and Darcy amidst zombies definitely "in want of more brains"
