Wildstorm has announced the latest in the zombie genre – Victorian Undead.  And before you ask, yes, Sherlock Holmes is involved.

The setting? London, the year 1854. Gas lamps throw long shadows across closed storefronts; a horse-drawn carriage prattles down the cobblestone street, paying no mind to the feral children sleeping in the alley. The only sounds audible at this late-night hour are a bit of music rising from the pub on the corner and the low moan of a zombie shuffling over the sidewalk.

The six-issue mini-series will be written by Ian Edginton with art by Davide Fabbri.

Take the jump for a peak at the full cover and gruesome variant.
