Hi, well in order to better support the theme and warm up for the game, please reccomend material of similar thematic to LNoE:

Comic:
Book:
Music albums (or packs):

PS. I didn't wrote movie series because thats probably the easiest one to find and use.

Comic:
Walking Dead is the greatest Zombie comic I've read.
If you enjoy Marvel superheroes, then Marvel Zombies are quite fun as well.

Books:
World War Z by Max Brooks (and, to a lesser extent, Zombie Survival Guide by same author) is a great read.
Day by Day Armageddon should be good, but I haven't read it yet (it's on my list).

Music: The soundtrack to the game? Otherwise, I don't know. Maybe some horrorcore rap...? Or some Horror Metal?

Yog-Sothoth knows the gate. Yog-Sothoth is the gate. Yog-Sothoth is the key and guardian of the gate. Past, present, future, all are one in Yog-Sothoth. He knows where the Old Ones broke through of old, and where They shall break through again.

Music: If you like metal, Rob Zombie - Hellbilly Deluxe. If you like punk, The Misfits (I personally recommend with Glenn Danzig vocals). If you like classical, Bach's Toccata and Fugue in D minor.

I've not read to many zombie books or comic books, but one that i have read is a steampunk story called boneshaker and i loved it.

music: depending on mood, i think Godspeed you black emperor has a nice empty vastness to their sound (if you saw 28 days later they have songs in that movie)
or for a little more upbeat try creature feature or any number of rockabilly/psychobilly bands (nekromantics, zombie ghost train, are two that pop into my mind)

There's a lot of really bad zombie fiction out there. Day By Day Armageddon is an exception. highly recommended.

I'll agree with everyone else that Walking Dead is by far the best zombie comic ever. As far as music, we always seem to have Midnight Syndicate playing in the background while we play.

Music could also be Richard Cheese with Down With The Sickness (anyone who has seen the Dawn of the Dead remake will remember this song)

Nine Inch Nails' Ghosts I-IV has a good amount of eerie and a mix of slow/frantic rock/electronica soundscapes that work very well with LNOE. Probably work better than the CD that's packaged with the game.

Even better, Trent Reznor is so bad ass he lets you download a bunch of them for free!

Sample/download/buy NIN's Ghosts I-IV album here: http://ghosts.nin.com/main/home

Listening to 24 Ghosts III and 31 Ghosts IV, and they're just perfect for LNOE.

I like Tom Waits' Bone Machine, especially "Murder in the Red Barn".

Thank you a bunch - obtained comics, now am working on getting the music & books.

Some of you probably have heard of but if not, feel free to watch Dead set miniseries (hint: how to combine Big Brother and Zombies)
