Interview with ZMD’s Kevin Grevioux

Comics Bulletin has interviewed Kevin Grevioux, writer of the upcoming Red 5 title ZMD: Zombies of Mass Destruction. Here’s a small sample:

Chris Murman: Red 5 is calling ZMD an action-horror comic series, but the name does have kind of a spoof/humor sound to it. What’s the premise behind ZMD and how serious is this zombie story?

Kevin Grevioux: Yes the title and the motif we’re going for in the cover art direction does have some humor to it, but the actual story is anything but. The story is a combination of Night of the Living Dead and Apocalypse Now. The government has accidentally developed a method of zombification and is using it as a way to augment our military fighting force. No longer do we have to send live soldiers in a combat hot zone like Iraq or Mogadishu, you can now drop these zombies, or “necronites” as I call them, into a hostile theater to infect enemy soldiers and spare American lives.

The unfortunate thing is that one of the zombies did not dissolve like it was suppose to, and as a result it is infecting other people, namely civilians in that region and creating other sentient zombies like himself that are under his complete control. The government then has to send a semi-retired soldier in to stop this epidemic in before the infection spreads too far.

    The man needs to know the difference between “sentient” and “sapient”, which is the word I think he means to use. Sentient means ‘able to feel’, sapient is ‘able to know’.

  2. Bernie Says:

    No. I think YOU need to know the difference. I think he meant what he said. Where did you go to school?? Look below. He used the FIRST definition of the word. You used the THIRD.
