There are just some projects that you know from the second you hear about them that they are going to be a hit. So is the case with scribe Chris Roberson’s upcoming monthly from Vertigo titled “I, ZOMBIE”. Inside you’ll find the full press release about the upcoming project due out on May 5th, as well as the 7 page teaser! Still not interested? What if I told you that the first issue was going to be the same price as a cheeseburger? Read on for the skinny.
Gwen Dylan is a gravedigger in an eco-friendly cemetery…and a zombie detective. Once a month, she has to eat a human brain – both to keep from going all “Night of the Living Dead,” and to keep her own memories intact. As a result, Gwen’s mind is crowded with the dead person’s thoughts. And lately, she feels compelled to fulfill their final requests. Torn between a mysterious mummy and a dashing young monster-hunter, Gwen is set for adventures beyond imagination! A were-terrier, a swinging ’60s ghost and a pack of paintball blasting vampires complete the cast of I, ZOMBIE.
Written by World Fantasy Award finalist Chris Roberson (CINDERELLA: FROM FABLETOWN WITH LOVE) with art by Eisner Award-winning superstar artist Michael Allred (X-Statix, Madman), I, ZOMBIE is a monster of a tale with razor-sharp prose and powerful pop artistry.
