The creator behind Beg the Question and Finger Filth , Fingerman gives the world another helping of outright fun with this Our Gang Meets Dawn of the Dead gene-splicing. When an elementary school science experiment goes awry and causes several of the children and teachers to become flesh-eating zombies, it's every kid for himself. The grade-schoolers must give just as gorily as they get, gruesomely and gleefully rising to the occasion, with one kid memorably converting a clunky industrial arts paper cutter into a very effective zombie deterrent. Refreshingly peopled with a multiethnic band of well-defined young characters, those not put off by the hilariously grisly content will find Fingerman's dark sense of humor is in overdrive, and his lush, offal-drenched artwork is a delight. Beware: despite starring a cast of children, this is in no way a children's comic, as it is replete with realistically frank language and extremely graphic depictions of violence and entrails-munching cannibalism. Fingerman hits one out of the park with this perfect antidote to stodgy "summer" reading. (Sept.)
