Dawn of the Dead by George Romero & Susanna Sparrow 


First edition TRADE Paperback with 8 pages of full color photos.  

Nice large vintage trade paperback in near mint condition.  Cover has some mild shelf / rub wear and some trace wear along edges.   

Inside, pages look good as new.  Tiny spot stain to bottom of text block [see last photo] -- otherwise, stunning.  

A decade after the premiere of the 1968 film The Night of the Living Dead, George Romero returned with its sequel, Dawn of the Dead, which tore its way onto movie screens across the country, shocked an entire generation, and became an instant zombie classic as the highest grossing indie film of all time.   Shortly thereafter, Romero, along with author Susanna Sparrow, wrote a novel based on the movie.

In one of the landmark tales of the zombie apocalypse, a handful of survivors seek refuge at a local shopping mall, barricading themselves in. They soon realize that this is the perfect place to wait out the end of the world, and despite pending doom, they even start to enjoy themselves. But it doesn't take long for the undead to find a way into their world.
