Screenwriter Eric Red (The Hitcher, Near Dark) offers up a zombie story set in space. On a manned NASA space ship millions of miles from Earth, a terrifying malfunction occurs in the cryogenic hypersleep pods containing the hibernating astronauts, turning most of the crew into the violently brain-dead.

Reviews - What do customers think about Eric Reds Containment?
THIS BOOK IS AWESOME!!!! Jan 10, 2006
Alien meets Dawn of the Dead! Hot naked chicks in space running from half frozen zombies... what's not to like. I LOVED IT!!! A bunch of astronauts get woken up from being cryofrozen only to find out that half of their crew has been turned into zombies. It's a fight for their life as they make their way to the other side of the ship to try and save themselves from certain death. What happens? You'll have to find out for yourself. All I can say is, really fast read, tons of action and many naked babes (some of them zombies -- kinda of a weird turn on -- hey i'm a guy).
A big let down Jan 6, 2006
I don't normally write reviews, even when I'm let down by the product. But I feel a sense of duty seeing as I have such a love for the horror genre and wouldn't wish others to be as let down as I was. Having recently tried to get back into comics, at the age of 26, I bought the Walking Dead graphic novels as well as Containment as a starting point. I love almost all things zombie and between movies and books as well as the odd table top game and zombie pencil and paper game manual I own quite a stash of zombie goods. I started by reading the Walking Dead comics and was very impressed and enjoyed them greatly but upon moving on to read containment I was as equally unimpressed. The story seemed original ( although ripped off from Alien ) but the follow through was very weak and the writing didn't help. While I understood that the artist wanted the comic to look dark it was so over done that I felt everything just blurred together. The character who replaces the Android from Aliens as the trouble maker seems to do so out of no where. He was friends with them when they set out on this long journey but somehow while sleeping he suddenly woke up a total jerk, perhaps if this was explained a bit more it would be plausible. Bottom line just buy the Walking Dead if you want a good zombie comic
