Our surviving porn stars have made it to Jenny’s apartment, but our angry mobster pays a visit to settle a score and increase death count. Who will survive the zombie apocalypse?

XXXombies comes to a close with more sex, violence, and zombies with humorous ending I should have expected.

It was a fun ride. I was almost right about who the survivors were. I just picked one too many. I’m not too sure I liked the whole mobster side. I had hoped for more zombie fun, but most of the violence came from them instead. That was disappointing, and Wong Hung Lau and his new little zombie venture. His end wasn’t very satisfying either.

I feel conflicted. The only reason I didn’t like this book was the lack of zombie action. I felt the mobsters were a bit anti-climatic. We’re in the middle of a zombie apocalypse and this mobster is going to risk his life and mess up a truck driver and his daughter? Couldn’t we have thought of something a little better?

Overall, I did enjoy this series. The art, the story concept, dead zombie babies, I couldn’t have asked for more. It just didn’t quite deliver to the end. Though the very final scenes almost make up for it all, giving some love to old school serialized horror shows and books.

I’ll be looking forward to the next story.
