When Quirk Books published Pride and Prejudice and Zombies in 2009, a new type of comic horror was invented-- the mash-up.
Many imitators have come out since then, but the Quirk books titles have been the best. How do they do it? This article goes behind the scenes with the small, privately held, independent publishers to get their side of the story.
I thought the mash-up might have been on its way out, but after reading the article, I am not so sure. I have also been eagerly anticipating their newest title, Night of the Living Trekkies. Here a zombie outbreak takes place at a Comic-Con like convention. It sounds like the perfect mix of campy and scary. I am on hold for it right now.
