After Red 5’s successful ZMD: Zombies of Mass Destruction series, we are returning to the zombie genre with Dead or Alive in November! But this also marks our first trip into the realm of Westerns, too. This mashup is being written by Scott Chitwood (Afterburn, Drone), drawn by Alfonso Ruiz (Abyss: Family Issues), and colored by Garry Henderson (Drone, Abyss: Family Issues). It also features a cover by Star Wars artist Matt Busch. Here’s the series synopsis:
When two down-on-their-luck cowboys capture the most wanted outlaw in the West, they get more than they bargained for when they discover a Comanche shaman has infected him with an ancient zombie virus. If the zombie doesn’t kill them, the Comanche, rival bounty hunters, and other outlaws will!
