IDW Publishing is bringing zombie comic Deadworld back to life this December. Gary Reed and Sami Makkonen, the team behind Deadworld: War of the Dead, continue where they left off and push the story into even darker territory with new mini-series Deadworld: Restoration.
“I’m excited about this series,” said writer Reed, “and the title of the series, Restoration, ties in with a number of different elements within the story. Yes, some things are restored, but it’s not going to be what most people think.”
Reed is the one of the original writers of the Deadworld series and a longtime contributor as well as the co-creator and writer of the Harvey Award nominee for Best New Series, Baker Street. Makkonen, of Eisner Award nominated series Hatter M fame, has won the prestigious Sarjis Award in Finland for Best Illustrator and is the artist for IDW’s recently released Ryse: Son of Damocles digital interactive graphic novel.
Deadworld: War of the Dead was the first Deadworld to be presented in color and won the Ghastly Award as Best Mini-Series of 2012 as well as received the same nominations from the Shel Dorf Awards and the Comic Monsters Awards. Check out the next chapter to the series described by Talking Comics as “frightening, haunting, gloomy, grave, and delectably mystifying.”
The lepers have been slaughtered, the people who escaped the breeder pits head for the safety of New Washington, and now the zombies are under the control of Donna, the half-human/half-zombie hybrid. With King Zombie dead, Donna is the leader of the zombies… or is she?
