Dreaming Genius Television: Max Brooks

By Tony Nunes, Dreaming Genius co-editor

Max Brooks, author and zombie expert sits down with DGTV for a brief interview on the motivations behind his New York Times bestselling book, The Zombie Survival Guide.  Brooks, son of famous satirical filmmaker Mel Brooks (Young Frankenstein), has cultivated a massive cult following based off of the popularity of the Survival Guide, a serious take on survival in a post-zombie-apocalypse world.  Brooks' second book, World War Z: An Oral History of the Zombie War takes the zombie theme a step further, as discussed in the interview.  World War Z is currently in production as a major motion picture starring Brad Pitt and directed by Marc Forster (Monster's Ball). 

Brooks also developed portions of the Survival Guide into a graphic novel called Zombie Survival Guide: Recorded Attacks and has since worked again in the comic world on the series GI Joe: Hearts & Minds for IDW Publishing.  While Brooks was raised with the hilarious Mel Brooks as his father and Max himself worked as a writer for Saturday Night Live, he takes his zombie books very seriously.  Hear his motivation for the stories and learn a bit about zombie survival in this episode of DGTV.  Watch after the jump.
