Double Take Makes September the Month of the Living Dead

As we told you previously, today is the day Double Take (2T) is releasing all 10 first issues of its new series Ultimate Night of the Living Dead. 2T assembled 10 teams of talented storytellers, and each is creating an original series of stories which promise to be interesting, informative, and funny in their own way.  Together they weave into a common universe.

If this sounds up your alley (and if you’re reading this site, it probably is), then read on for the details of each series along with some samples of the artwork.

“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.”

About 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 first 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.

The 10 books include:
