BLOOD + BRAINS by Jeffrey Burandt and Dean Haspiel was first published in December of 2012 in Image Comics’ Creator Owned Heroes #7, which you can buy now, digitally, on Comixology by clicking HERE.

Pitched as a full-length graphic novel, Blood + Brains takes the “vampires vs. zombies” premise, and pushes it to a whole new, adrenaline-infused level, where the ubiquitous zombie horde is but the first wave of monsters our protagonists must survive as they head out on a death-race, cattle-drive against werewolf motorcycle gangs, chupacabra long-haul truckers, and creepy, cancerous mutants. Penny Dreadful meets Mad Max.

Bleeding Cool says, “Smart storytelling can bring new life into any convention, walking dead included. And that is what “Blood + Brains” delivers, smart storytelling and new life […] into a trope that constantly seems to be on it’s last, undead legs.”

The Comics Beat says, “[D]eliver[s] something readers have simply never seen before, imploding any expectation of the familiar. [….] “Blood and Brains” retools zombie narrative by removing excess accretion and celebrating its potential in creator-owned style.”

Unleash the Fanboy says, “[Y]ou can’t help but love it.”
