If most post-apocalyptic movies are accurate, the future looks pretty freaking bleak for us humans. Zombies Vs. Robots, co-created by Chris Ryall and Ashley Wood, doesn’t do much to change that outlook but it does manage to put a cool new spin on the idea. In this future humans are near extinction, sentient robots walk the Earth, Amazonian warriors are real and zombies… well, they do zombie stuff.
This week, IDW returns to the ongoing saga of undead and automaton aggression with a new ongoing series featuring not one, but 3 stories in 1! The first tale, “Inherit the Earth,” by Ryall picks up where the last mini-series, Zombies Vs Robots: Undercity, left off and establishes a new status quo for the ZvR universe with “merman and a zombified giant squid.” Meanwhile Steve Niles joins the team with “The Orphan,” a more personal look into the life of a lone survivor. Ashley Wood himself wraps things up with “Tales of ZvR.”
