One of the promising new zombie tales to have been announced as of late is the Mark Kidwell (“BUMP”) and Jay Fotos’ (“THE NAIL”) created “68″ which will FINALLY be making its debut this April from “THE WALKING DEAD” publisher Image. The non-historical historical horror story revolves around a zombie outbreak that occurs in, you guessed it, “68″. This month the series was featured in the newest issue of previews, and beyond the break you can get a look at all the stills as well as some additional cover art and an advance panel from the first issue. Read on for the skinny!
“In the late ’60s, President Lyndon Johnson announced that he would not seek reelection. Martin Luther King, Jr. was assassinated at the Lorraine Motel in Tennessee, with his killer arrested some months later. Combat soldiers fought in Vietnam and stateside flower power blossomed into something militant in retaliation against the unpopular war.
This all happened in 1968 – the very same year that zombies overtook the world.”
“68″ Issue #1 Drops April 20th From Image Comics! (MSRP-$3.99)
