Two bad-ass brothers trying to keep the apocalypse from happening one job at a time!

The Zee brothers are called to handle the Zombie outbreak. They meet JJ and her dog, Xanadu. Together they fight dozens of the once dead.
Ian McEuen brings to us a fantastic narration, using many different voices and inflections. There is drama, humor and a teensy bit of romance. Probably not for young children but a blast for everyone else.
