Greetings Ghoul Gang,
Check out this putrid bowl of awesome. Word is that my very favorite freshman comic publisher, Red 5 Comics, are finally getting around to covering issues important to a ghast like myself — a six-issue series starring MY kind. Yes, that’s right, bitches. Zombies!
Kevin Grevioux (Underworld) is putting together the series, titled ZMD: Zombies of Mass Destruction, about zombie military weapons gone bad… real bad.
Check out the official info and images from their press release right here after the jump.
Air-dropped into the deadliest hot zones, the walking dead of ZMD: Zombies of Mass Destruction indiscriminately infect every last warring insurgent — on either side of the conflict. Specifically engineered to be photosensitive, once enemy infection becomes complete by dawn, both the originals and newly created zombies dissolve as a means to control widespread and accidental zombification. This allows live soldiers to enter and safely occupy the now-combatant-free territory. However, this plan takes a deadly turn when one of the U.S. zombies, dubbed — ZOMBIE ZERO — fails to dissolve at the expected time, and begins to wreak havoc in the Middle East by creating others like him. This leads the U.S. military brass to send in a special operative to quietly take out Zombie Zero and his minions before their existence becomes known to the rest of the world.
ZMD: Zombies of Mass Destruction #1, the first of six bi-monthly issues, will be on shelves this July. To ensure you don’t miss out, contact your local comic shop by May 15 and ask them to pre-order your copy today using Diamond order code MAY084097.
