Just the other day I was thinking…you know what would really put “The Walking Dead” over the top…really make it that unique, unforgettable epic show that goes down as a benchmark of television…a gorilla with a baseball bat. Just think how shocking it would have been if an ape with a Louisville Slugger came blasting out of Herschel’s barn instead of Sophia. Well AMC, it’s too late for that because the upcoming comic Rex, Zombie Killer is all over that already!
In April 2012, Big Dog Ink will be publishing Rex, Zombie Killer #1. Not only is it a unique take on the zombie sub-genre, but it’s one helluva bargain at just $3.50 for a book over 50 pages long!
Animal lovers and zombie haters unite! This is the title that brings you all together. So take a break from re-watching Marley & Me and give Rex, Zombie Killer a look. The book is written by Rob Anderson (Animal Control: Special Creatures Unit, Great Zombies in History) with interior and cover art by DaFu Yu (Grimm Fairy Tales, Wonderland Annual), colors by Kevin Volo, letters and design by E.T. Dollman, and edited by Paul Allor (Clockwork).
In the wake of a zombie apocalypse, a small band of animals, led by a hyper-intelligent Golden Retriever named Rex, and accompanied by a baseball bat-wielding gorilla, begin their cross-country journey in the hope of finding safety…and a home.
