The first part of a chilling rewriting of the infamous cult movie! It's Halloween. Lizbeth leaves her husband and two children to accompany her brother Leland, the favourite son, to visit the grave of their adoptive parents. But no sooner do they arrive at the cemetery than they are attacked by a group of living dead! After a terrifying chase, Lizbeth and Leland find refuge in a squalid hotel that will prove to be the only defence against a horde of zombies hungry for fresh meat. They are safe, for now. But the real danger is right outside the hotel walls and the invasion is widespread. Several cities are already devastated. The survivors discover that the hotel manager is holed up in his room, ready to shoot the first person (or thing) that comes too close. As night begins to fall, they discover another problem. There is no electricity. Lizbeth has no choice. She decides that someone has to turn on the emergency power system. But she will have to pass through an area infested with zombies. Will Lizbeth survive? Will she be reunited with her husband and children? The cult film Night of the Living Dead created the modern zombie myth.Night of the Living Dead, Volume 1: The Sins of the Father is the first of three volumes that retell the classic story for modern readers and fans of graphic novels. Istin's tight text and Bonetti's skilled art bring the terror and horrid fear to life and the convey the psychology of the characters. Together they resurrect the zombie story for a new generation.

Reviews

(translated from the French) This reading of The Night of the Living Dead is effective, not only because the narrative is clever and rhythmic, but mainly because the graphical environment is daunting. The sets though beautiful are distressing, Bonetti did not hesitate to include many wide panoramic shots: dark halls, cemeteries, or snowy roads alternate with infested alleys maintain a high level of tension throughout the 50 boards. Add to this the final cliffhanger... Stunning scenes, effective storytelling and constant suspense.--Baron Mardi"My Zombie Culture Blog" (09/03/2014) It's said to never judge a book by its cover. Yet, Night of the Living Dead volume 1 does not pause with an impressive jacket. Elia Bonetti greets readers with realistic illustrations. Each panel is visually striking, each conveying a sense of violence, dread, and action. The level of detail within each design is astounding... Firefly Books Limited delivers on craftsmanship. Night of the Living Dead volume 1 is printed on a glossy paper stock. Colors are vivid and pop off from each page. The graphic novel itself is a work of art that can be best served a framed collectible.--Ken Artuz"DecayMag.com" (10/11/2016) Detailed illustrations fill every panel of this graphic novel while Istin's intelligent dialogue brings the characters into sharper focus as we connect with them and their fears... This is the first of a trilogy and hopefully the next two will be quickly made available.--Terry Peters"North Shore News" (11/18/2016) Laying the foundation for the series, this entry is a modern rewrite of the classic film that launched the popular zombie genre... The visuals and language are graphic but would be appropriate for mature high school students. The art beautifully sets the mood with full-color illustrations and varying panel sizes that direct readers' focus. Teens will anxiously await the future releases. An engaging series for fans of the zombie genre, especially those who enjoyed The Walking Dead comic book or television series.--Kevin McGuire"School Library Journal" (01/23/2017)
