“How to survive the zombie apocalypse, with your mother!”By John Miler, is a comedy that has the ambition to become a TV series

Brazil faces zombie apocalypse in “How to survive the zombie apocalypse, with your mother!”, book written by the gaucho John Miler.

Today the work has already left the platform and is a success in Amazon, coming to be among the most downloaded titles for free in 2020, a milestone for the author's career.

“I believe that for us Brazilians, that we grew up being stuffed with American products and stories, outside the thought that what's here is bad and what's outside is good, being able to develop narratives that represent our people and our culture is a barrier to be overcome. ”, said.

The work carries several references of pop culture, going since George Romero until Black Race, and the artist was inspired by the narrative of Douglas Adams, author of Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy, to give the comic and non-sense tone to the story. In an interview, he revealed that the story was called, originally, Zombie Mother's Day and would be a script for TV series, but today he does not rule out the possibility of an audiovisual adaptation.

In “How to Survive the Zombie Apocalypse, with your mother!”, we follow Edmilson, a teenager who has always been passionate about pop culture, mainly involving undead, living a zombie apocalypse in the real world, and having to deal with the fact that life is not an American film. He always imagined what it would be like to live a moment like this, but he forgot that his mother would also be in the same situation, together with his middle aged uncle who dreams of becoming a filmmaker. Thus, the trio sets out on a comic adventure for their own survival.
