Summary
Francis von Bloodt, a vampire and good family man, operates the one-of-a-kind theme park Zombiellennium. But this unique amusement park doesn't just hire anyone: mere mortals need not apply - only genuine werewolves, vampires, zombies and other citizens from the undead community are employed. This is what Aurelian gets to discover as, burnt out, deceived by his wife, he finally gets hired in spite of himself in this strange business. Gretchen, a plucky trainee witch, helps him get around
Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "This newly, excellently translated series opens with a volume featuring a witch turned monster-theme-park intern, Gretchen. On immediate glance, the theme and patter seem more reminiscent of young adult fare, but the satirical take on a host of popular books, memes, and themes best targets the well-read, parody-appreciative culture maven. The titular theme park is staffed only by legions of the undead: ghosts; a mummy, who prefers a hoodie and jeans to the iconic linen wrappings; a werewolf and vampire who compete to claim any fresh mortal; and other demons and hellions. Zombillenium has some very strict rules, a board of directors, and a brand-new employee newly deceased sad-sack Aurelian, who Gretchen meets when he tries (unsuccessfully) to hold up a bar. The gorgeously colored tiny panels across folio-sized pages offer sly asides of their own. This award-winning, laugh-aloud, smart comic should be of high interest to those who enjoy parodies of Tintin, Posy Simmonds' reworking of nineteenth-century literature, and anything that pokes gentle fun at Harry Potter or the Twilight craze.--Goldsmith, Francisca Copyright 2010 Booklist"

Publisher's Weekly Review: "A theme park staffed by the undead confronts the daily challenges of trying to stay competitive with the likes of Disneyland and Seaworld in this comedy, originally published in France. Whether they're dealing with a disaffected mummy employee who wants to run away to Cairo, or larger economic problems, the park's administrators have a lot on their hands. Enter Aurelian Zahner, a human who's bitten by both a vampire and a werewolf. What kind of monster will he be? De Pins does a wonderful job of creating a brand of humor that matches perfectly the cartoony world of monsters he presents. He's especially good in panel sequences where he uses minor changes in body language to show Aurelian's reaction to the strange characters of Zombillenium Park, whether Aurelian is with the beautiful witch Gretchen inside an audio-isolation bubble or in an elevator with Aton the mummy, who's just grateful he doesn't have to work the cotton-candy stand anymore. With its humor, clever pacing, and unique approach to the monster narrative, de Pins's tale throws zombie fans some fresh meat. (Aug.) (c) Copyright PWxyz, LLC. All rights reserved."
