“Ballroom Blitzkrieg”
Writer & Artist: Jeff McComsey

Morning and Major Steiner and Svetlana are ready to make a break for the tower. They have loaded themselves with guns, grenades, satchel charges and an M-42 machine gun. Basically Steiner uses the satchel charges and machine gun to clear a path for Svetlana and the boy. They blow a hole through the zombies. Steiner manages to save his dog Hilde. Svetlana makes it to the tower and finds another German soldier already there. She gets into a fight and bashes his head in with a can of pork and beans. She then lifts the dog Hilde to safety as Steiner keeps the zombies at bay. He is overrun and sets off a grenade. Svetlana, Hilde and the boy are happily safe.

The final was everything you could hope for. There was plenty of action as they take out zombies the only way that is effective, with automatic weapon fire and explosives. Steiner has shown a noble spirit in sacrificing his life to save his dog. You have to have a dog to understand. It ends with Svetlana, Hilde and the boy all one big happy family. An epilogue showed some Soviet soldiers trapped on a roof waiting for the cold that would slow down the zombies so they could leave. I think that we may have not seen the last of Svetlana and this zombie Stalingrad. I would love to see more of her and maybe other adventures around the world in the WWII zombie apocalypse.
