Zombies: The Ultimate Guide

Zombies: The Ultimate Guide is a bookazine from SFX magazine and it is on sale now. I’ve picked up a copy and I can say that fans of all things undead will love this – as well as a well written magazine with exhaustive coverage of the genre there is a cool little zombie head key topper.

Zombies: The Ultimate Guide, an 132-page magazine dedicated to all things undead. You can get it from all good newsagents (if your local shop doesn’t stock it, ask them to order in SFX special number 52)
