One Shot WANT MORE: Zombie King by Frank Cho

ZOMBIE KING #0 (2005) by Frank Cho and Eric Crowe
Clipped from Newsarma forum, post by Matt Brady, and edited a bit by us: And you thought Frank Cho could only draw hot women and dinosaurs…Cho shows everyone how wrong they were on July 13th with Zombie King #0, co-written by himself and Eric Crowe, and published by Image. The black and white one-shot sets the stage for many more stories as well as many more opportunities for the depiction of flagrant violation of several state and county laws.

CONCEPT: A new breakthrough in medicine is here. A new drug that can mend bones, reconnect nerves and even reanimate dead cells. Only one pharmaceutical company has it and only they know the drug's dark secrets and the price of immortality. How far will they go to keep it all? How far will others go to take it?

THIS ISSUE: Disaster strikes the heartland. The North Dakota pharmaceutical warehouse is breached and the undead are unleashed. A small band of security guards and local farmers must fight to contain the zombies. How do you kill something that's already dead? Shoot repeatedly. If nothing else, will have you saying, “Huh. Never saw that before…” in regards to a zombie and it’s…er…lust. 

2008 Update-clipped from Big Shiny Robot: Frank Cho has stated that his once planned monthly book Zombie King is back in the works again. It is being pitched around as a feature film to Dark Horse Entertainment as well which will decide if Image or Dark Horse will be publishing the book.
