FourStars

Drag queen zombies. That’s a thing. An almost-conceivable thing, in this tastefully bedazzled apocalyptic future by clever scribe Rob Rosen. This fantastic, campy, hilarious book takes our drag queens on a journey from Utah to New York City (every girl’s dream, right?) to save the world. I mean, sort of. What’s left of it.
Creature Comfort is likeably heroic and even more likeably sarcastic. Her life-mate, Dara Licked, is both wise and alluring. The other characters that come and go are affable and funny, or evil and funny. It all works.
World-building is in full force. I feel sad about the zombies, both the conscious ones (served by humans in exchange for protection) and the unconscious, groaning stereotypes. Eternity weighs heavy at times, even in the moment. It’s a nice touch.
If you have an appreciation for gay camp culture, from Lifetime movies to feather boas, you’ll love this book. If you need to develop an appreciation, Creature Comfort, with her high heels and wig and love of Britney Spears, will guide you.
Spoiler: Radiation-beam eye powers!
