Metahumans vs the Undead: A Superhero vs Zombie Anthology takes that premise and runs with it. The stories are all very enjoyable. Add to the mix some very creative origins for the zombie outbreak, and you have a winner. The heroes are very fleshed-out for the limited space of a story, although some of these heroes, like Frank Dirscherl's Wraith and J.L. MacDonald's Nightcat, exist in other novels and comics. I must say that even "the Puppet Master," starring an obvious knock-off of Batman, was enjoyable (mostly because I love superhero stories about heroes who don't necessarily have super powers). Many of the stories have some swearing in them, although not anything that you wouldn't hear in an X-Men movie. Also, the Axiom-man story, "There's Something Rotten Up North," can be found apart from this anthology (indeed, I'd already read it). But the book succeeds in doing the two things that it sets out to do: It entertains and it introduces us to a new roster of indie heroes.
