Stephen King called Night of the Living Dead "maybe the most important horror flick of the last 50 years" in Entertainment Weekly.
by John Russo
About the Book:
George A. Romero's classic 1968 film, Night of the Living Dead, has been revered among horror buffs and moviegoers since its release. It introduced a new era of gutmunching cinematic mayhem and inspired legions of directors and writers, among them Quentin Tarantino, George Lucas, Stephen King, and Steven Spielberg.
John A. Russo, who co-wrote the screenplay for Night of the Living Dead, also turned the flesh-eating frenzy into two blood-drenched novels which until recently were Out of Print for thirty years and lost to an entire generation of readers. This book includes the rare original version of Return of the Living Dead, as opposed to the version based on Dan O'Bannon's movie, which was a horror comedy.
In this beautiful special signed Limited Edition hardcover, Russo's two classic novels have been combined into one gory, chilling volume.
Within these pages you'll find gruesome, suspenseful horror at its best.
John Russo is widely lauded as a "living legend" of the horror genre. Russo's comic book publisher, Avatar, is preparing to release a huge graphic novel containing all of the recent NIGHT OF THE LIVING DEAD comics, most of which were written or conceived by Russo and fully authorized by George A. Romero. Avatar published Russo's ESCAPE OF THE LIVING DEAD comics, based on his original screenplay, which made the Top Ten of Horror Comics nationally and spawned ten sequels and two graphic novels.
