They are both featured in a new graphic novel called Library of the Living Dead, produced by McPherson College’s Miller Library in Kansas.

“The library has just released an online 23-page library guide in graphic novel format called Library of the Living Dead that features students taking cover in the library from zombies run amok on campus, and the flight to safety becomes a point of departure for a blood-stained lesson, replete with decapitations, in the Dewey Decimal system and other library tools.” —Library Journal
