The zombies are invading O-Town, and we have your first look at Rocko’s Modern Afterlife #1 from BOOM! Studios. The issue arrives in April 2019.
The issue is written by Anthony Burch with art by Mattia Di Meo.
Welcome to the future of O-town where everyone’s cell phone is glued to their hands, Heffer makes a living streaming video games online, and the latest app lets you avoid all contact with everyone else without even looking up from your gadget! But even in the midst of this techno-utopia, there’s something not quite right with Rocko’s fellow citizens as the authorities call for a city-wide lockdown. While Rocko takes the two weeks as a time to chill and unplug from technology, the rest of the town seems to be going mad. When danger comes knocking at his door, the newly zen wallaby will have to choose whether to stay barricaded within his increasingly surrounded home or venture forth into a wasteland filled with mindless versions of his friends and neighbors.
“Anthony and Mattia bring a fresh and hilarious take to everyone’s favorite neurotic wallaby. Rocko has to find the resolve to brave the undead and save his friends ” said Matthew Levine, Editor. “Come for the mindless zombie hordes and stay for the social satire as Rocko and the rest of O-town find out exactly who they are when society breaks down around them.”
Be on the lookout for Rocko’s Modern Afterlife #1 when it lands on April 3, 2019.
