A darkly comic fable that offers visions of the apocalypse for every letter of the alphabet.
Starting with a father whose son has been asking questions about global dangers, A Is for Asteroids, Z Is for Zombies takes us inside our worst fears, laughing at some and taking others seriously. With macabre verse and fantastically gory illustrations, it provides gallows humor for our doom-haunted times.
As it satirizes the 24-hour news cycle hysteria, A Is for Asteroids, Z Is for Zombies pokes fun at a constant conversation about our planet being too far gone to save.
The book includes fantastically gory illustrations that illuminate the world’s demise. Because if you can’t joke about the end times, what can you joke about?
