Get your zombie fix with a revival of the classic horror series Deadworld by Gary Reed!
If there's one problem we can all agree on with the comic book industry, it's a lack of comic books featuring zombies. IDW has heard your complaints, comics fandom, and responds with a 5 issue miniseries, published weekly in August, of Deadworld by original co-creator Gary Reed! Here's the press release:
Gary Reed's DEADWORLD returns in a weekly miniseries!
San Diego, CA (May 9, 2012) – This August, IDW Publishing is proud to announce the return of original co-creator Gary Reed's classic zombie series Deadworld! When vicious masses of undead monsters have taken over the planet, desperate humans cling to hope while warring factions of uniquely sinister zombies conspire against each other. Deadworld is a zombie tale unlike any other and a horrific and thrilling world that is decades in the making and unique unto itself.
"It seems like everything with Deadworld over the years is culminating towards this storyline, yet at the same time, it is an opportunity to introduce new readers to the Deadworld saga. That's why I'm so excited about this series, as it accomplishes both" said co-creator Reed.
Deadworld has seen a number of different formats and volumes over the years, but Reed's collaboration with artist Sami Makkonen, Deadworld: War of the Dead will be hitting comic shop shelves in a particularly thrilling fashion this August. War of the Dead will be released weekly in every one of August's five weeks!
Five issues of grim and terrifying zombie action in one month? What could be better?
Oh, that's right, five issues of Deadworld in horrifying, skull-crushing full-color! For the first time!
As a bonus salvo in IDW's August Deadworld onslaught, Deadworld Classic Volume 1 and Volume 2 will be offered again; as well as the hit Deadworld: Last Siesta TPB!
