“Deadworld” veers from the popular zombie mythology of depicting an apocalypse in which humans are overrun by flesh-eating corpses. “Deadworld” picks up four months after that event, where the Dead overtake the Earth, with humans few and far between. Protag is King Zombie, a Harley-riding corpse who holds a grudge against the survivors who made him an outcast.
Gary Reed’s grim zombie tale continues with it’s second to last issue this week. “Deadworld” is as original a zombie story you’ll find, and Gary Reed has delivered month after month with crazy undead drama, while managing to stay far away from “The Walking Dead”. There are people controlling zombies, people fighting them off, and people who can’t decide what side they’re on. We’ve got an exclusive look at “Deadworld: Restoration” #4 courtesy of IDW. READ MORE

IDW is back with yet another zombie book, but this is special. Back in 1987, when I was still roasting in my mother’s womb, Stuart Kerr and Ralph Griffith created “Deadworld”, which would become an extremely influential post-apocalyptic zombie tale that paved the way for our current zombie-obsessed culture. Somewhere in the fuss of the late 80s, the rights to the book were taken over by Gary Reed who proceeded to write the series from issue #12 until it came to an end with issue #26. Now, Gary Reed is back to tell a brand new “Deadworld” story titled “War Of The Dead”. Check it after the jump. READ MORE
More zombies are heading your way from IDW!

In addition to the new mini-series, IDW will also be re-releasing “Deadworld Classic” volumes 1 and 2. See more info about the mini-series after the jump. READ MORE
