Surviving their first winter after the Monster Apocalypse was no easy feat, yet Jack and his buddies waste no time springing to action against some of the nastiest, most evil monsters around. When Jack discovers his Louisville Slicer has new, otherworldly powers, he's thrown into epic training to find out what kind of destruction the blade can wield. But between fighting off zombies, fleeing from strange, glowy Vine-Thingies erupting from the ground, and squeezing in a video game session or two, there's barely time left to figure out what's wrong with their buddy, Dirk, who's been acting weird any time he's around the undead. When an unexpected villain appears, can Jack and his friends save themselves--and the rest of the world--from cosmic domination?

Man, that new "Last Kids on Earth" show on Netflix has A LOT to catch up on! All they've got so far is the first episode/book, meanwhile everyone who's ever heard of it or taken an interest are WAY past and at volume 5! They still need to do "The Zombie Parade(vol. 2)", "The Nightmare King(vol. 3)" and "The Cosmic Beyond!(vol. 4)". And that last one involves celebrating Christmas and the holidays and everything, so if they want to air that episode by December 2020, they have at least two stories to animate before winter. If they've got the time and budget, they better get started!
And yes, it is indeed an awesome book, if you monsters, video games and apocalyptic stories told in the point of view of extremely geeky tweens, then I strongly suggest this series to you.
