There’s certainly no shortage of zombies in the media these days. You can wade through an endless cache of movies, music, novels, and comic books and still have a difficult time staying atop the undead legions. That doesn’t matter to DC/Vertigo, however, as they’re gearing up to gamble on another zombie-themed comic –- with an interesting twist.
According to Graphic Content, Vertigo’s official blog, author Chris Roberson will team with artist Mike Allerd for I, Zombie, the story of Gwendolyn “Gwen” Dylan, zombie girl detective. Think graveyards, ghosts, vampires and werewolves with a twist. Could be fun! We’ll find out in 2010 when the first issue rolls out.
If you’ll be at San Diego Comic-Con, you can learn more during one of the Friday, July 24th, panels described below:
