Dark Hero Studios and Pandemonium are teaming to bring the zombie comic book Deadworld, to movie theaters sometime in the future (unless of course you are reading this after the movie is already out… HELLO FUTURE PEOPLE!). “Deadworld” picks up four months after that event, where the Dead overtake the Earth, with humans few and far between.
