You kids get off my lawn. 

Zombies! Episode 1: Shawn of the Dead - Ivan Turner Definitely falls into the fine, I guess category of things I find on my ereader when I'm sick and feeling punkish about everything else I'm supposed to be reading. Props for the restraint about the zombie apocalypse. Instead of running a bunch of screaming and running, Zombies! opts for a Law & Order style procedural with almost careful inspection of the individual response. Some of the situations rankled - I seriously did not credit the phone conversation between a zombie-bitten dude and his wife - that is not how that would go down - but, again, I appreciated the feints toward psychological realism. The only thing I really hated here was the title. Seriously, wtf with that? Maybe I'll hit later episodes when I'm feeling punkish again though. Not bad.
