I’m sure I don’t have to remind you guys of the badass zombie graphic novel we’ve been touting for a while now, Minions of Ka, created by some of the “>coolest guys we’ve ever met … do I? All right, maybe I do just because we’ve been very quiet about it since it was released; we don’t even have a review for it yet (hard to find an objective staffer, you see), but trust me if you’ve not read it; it fucking rocks.
The story nicely tweaks the age-old zombie story, giving a compelling and politically driven reason for their existence. You can read about it, or at least part of it, by visiting the newly re-launched official Minions of Ka website, where the entire first chapter is now available. And in case you’ve forgotten, you can still read the story Jack Ketchum wrote set in the Minions of Ka universe, “>“The Western Dead”, exclusively on Dread Central!
So why a new site and renewed attention? To celebrate the fact that Monsterfoot Productions has nabbed the rights for Minions with plans to make it into a feature film! If you’re not familiar with Monsterfoot, they’re run by Ahmet Zappa (son of Frank) and Christian Beranek, so this has got some very cool talent behind it.
We’ll be following the progress of this about as closely as humanly possible without having charges brought against us so stay tuned. And don’t forget to check out the sleek and sexy new Minions of Ka website, and click here to get the book through Evilshop!
