TIME takes time out for a Q&A with Max Brooks

As the frenzy of Comic Con settles down and the news of World War Z’s new star settles in, author Max Brooks sat down with TIME.com to talk about his obsession with zombies, his inspiration for his books and what to wear to the zombie apocalypse:

“Tight clothes and short hair. You don't want to get grabbed. Dreads are not a good idea. Footwear, no matter what, it's got to be broken in. You don't want to go out and get a new pair of combat boots the day before a zombie outbreak because the blisters you're going to get are just going to slow you down and hurt your feet, and then they're going to get you.”

Last week at Comic Con, Brooks revealed that Brad Pitt would be starring in the big screen adaptation of “World War Z” with Marc Foster (Quantum of Solace) directing.
