Red5 Comics let Major Spoilers know it has a brand new mini-series coming our way this July that features everyone’s favorite undead brought to life (no pun intended) in a whole different way – Zombies fighting our battles.
Air-dropped into the deadliest hot zones, the walking dead of ZMD: ZOMBIES OF MASS DESTRUCTION indiscriminately infect every last warring insurgent — on either side of the conflict. Specifically engineered to be photosensitive, once enemy infection becomes complete by dawn, both the originals and newly created zombies dissolve as a means to control widespread and accidental zombification. This allows live soldiers to enter and safely occupy the now-combatant-free territory. However, this plan takes a deadly turn when one of the U.S. zombies, dubbed — ZOMBIE ZERO — fails to dissolve at the expected time, and begins to wreak havoc in the Middle East by creating others like him. This leads the U.S. military brass to send in a special operative to quietly take out Zombie Zero and his minions before their existence becomes known to the rest of the world.
YES! If you are going to compete in the zombie genre, this is a great take on the theme.
ZMD: Zombies of Mass Destruction (code MAY084097) is written by Kevin Grevioux with art by Geraldo Borges. Red5 Comics sent us a peek at the six part bi-monthly series that kicks off in July.
“ZMD: ZOMBIES OF MASS DESTRUCTION is a bit of a return to my horror roots,” said Grevioux. “Prior to creating this series, I was never really a big fan of zombies. But I came up with what I felt was an interesting twist on the genre and I’m thankful that Paul Ens and Scott Chitwood were open to the idea.”
