A friend of mine just gave me this copy of Rebel Ink magazine , which gave me, and especially Ibraim Roberson one hell of a shoutout. Apparently Tattoo artist Erin Chance likes “The Zombie Survival Guide: Recorded Attacks” enough to stab its images into people’s skin. For Ibraim, the artist behind ZSG: RA, there is no higher compliment!

In addition to Brad Pitt announcing that he’s attached to star in World War Z, Paramount has just optioned the movie rights to both “The Zombie Survival Guide” and it’s graphic adaptation “The Zombie Survival Guide: Recorded Attacks.”
So I just received the sample copies of RA, and, to my horror, IBRAIM ROBERSON, the artist, is nowhere to be found on the cover! In fact, he’s not even on the title page! This is, obviously, a class-A, solid gold screw up, and no matter who’s screw up it is, the damage is done. Fortunately, Random House got on the ball and made sure his name will be right there in the second printing. (I like to consider myself a considerate, civilized man, but sometimes you gotta get on the horn and scream WHAT THE FUCK!?!). Unfortunately, this first printing will only have my name on the book’s cover, and although this wasn’t my mistake, it’s still my responsibility. So let me apologize to the readers, the gods of Art, and, most especially to IBRAIM ROBERSON! This man’s artwork is like nothing I’ve ever seen. Anyone who buys a copy of “Recorded Attacks” will know what I’m talking about. IBRAIM ROBERSON rocks, and the world should know his name. End of story.
Oh yea, did I mention his name is IBRAIM ROBERSON?
I finally looked at the last polish on the last of the artwork (although saying this, I’m probably inviting more trouble). It’s been a long, long haul but I think we’re actually go to press! Still not sure if we’ll have any galley copies ready by Comic-Con. Even uncorrected proofs would be better than nothing. News on that should be coming soon.
