Deadworld: War of the Dead

G IN NOVEMBER.  IDW PUBLISHING.  Order #Sep12 0375 (Diamond Previews)
The zombies have over run the Earth!  A small outpost, remnants of a twisted scientists’ scheme to defeat the plague holds out against the army of King Zombie.  Their secret weapon are the Lepers-victims of a bizarre experiment that left them with dead flesh in breathing husks with flesh that even zombies won’t touch.  This new series of Deadworld is perfect for new readers to join in the frenzy of what has been called the “grand-daddy” of all zombie comics.

This full color five issue series released by IDW and maintained a weekly schedule through the month of August 2012.  Written by Gary Reed and Illustrated by Sami Makkonen, known for his work on Hatter M, the graphic novel series of the  NY Times bestselling Looking Glass Wars by author Frank Beddor.


“…remarkably literate and starkly imaginative, and is a winner in every scene, in every shot, in every line of dialogue.Reed writes beautifully, even in spite of the garishness of the set and setting. As strong as the writing is, the art is matching the strides with horrific detail and atmosphere. Makkonen is an unstoppable force of creative hellfire energy, and his pages are simply gorgeous

“War of the Dead is by far the greatest zombie story out there right now. Its atmosphere combined with great characters and gritty art makes this a must-buy. If it’s one mini-series you should be buying, it’s Deadworld: War of the Dead. 5 out of 5” ----Unleash the Fanboy
