Double Take Announces Remaining Seven Titles in the Ultimate Night of the Living Dead

Earlier this year we learned the titles of three of the books that Double Take is including in its “Ultimate Night of the Living Dead” collection of ten comics, and now we have more details plus what the other seven will be.

From the Press Release:
On September 16, 2015, Double Take (2T) will release all 10 first issues of its first 10 series of the Ultimate Night of the Living Dead. 2T has assembled 10 teams of talented storytellers; each is creating an original series of stories. Each series is interesting, informative, and funny in its own way. Together they weave into a common universe.

“Originally, we were thinking of trickling out a couple of series every month or so, building up our roster over time,” said 2T GM Bill Jemas. “Now we’re planning to launch our new universe in one big bang.”

In late March 2015, 2T announced the first three books of the series (Rise, Home, and Z-Men) for their September launch. Today the Company is announcing the final seven books of the universe including Honor, Lab, Spring, Remote, Medic, Dedication, and Soul.

In addition, today 2T also is launching a Kickstarter campaign in support of Ultimate Night of the Living Dead. Fans and retailers alike can save money while getting access to great comics and other goodies.

“Kickstarter is a great way to reach out to readers, to learn what they like and don’t like,” said Robert Meyers, 2T’s Managing Editor.

Finally, 2T is announcing an innovative offer – in addition to offering single copies, 2T will collect all 10 first issues in one Super Pack at a fantastic discount. Right now you can preview the first scenes of the first stories at doubletakeuniverse.com and pre-order a Super Pack on Kickstarter.com.

About the Ultimate Night of the Living Dead:
As you may know, the 1968 film is in the public domain. All of us here at Double Take admire and respect the creators, cast, and crew, but no one affiliated with the Night of the Living Dead film is in any way involved in the creation of 2T’s stories. 2T’s stories start in the world established by Night of the Living Dead. Then we let our imaginations and our zombies run wild. Mostly our creators are telling new stories starring new characters. But if you love the classic film, you won’t be disappointed; you can follow your favorite characters from their first appearances through their dying breaths to their first baby zombie steps.
