Jumping the Zombie Shark
So earlier today I was in the Mall of America's Barnes & Noble and I saw a new Star Wars novel, entitled Death Troopers. I scanned the back cover copy and realized what I was holding. Let's see here. A small group of survivors from a shuttle. Some sort of sickness that causes . . . dead Imperial troops to rise from their . . .
That's right. Star Wars zombie novel.
Okay, I'm not totally into the whole zombie thing. I don't know why it's not my thing, but it just isn't. So maybe I'm not the best judge of this. But really? Stormtrooper zombies? Really?
Perhaps the entire zombie fad has jumped an enormous undead shark. Time will tell.
