Zombie Noir Gets an AWAKENING in New Graphic Novel

Robert Kirkman’s The Walking Dead may be the talk of the town these days but it isn’t the only zombie comic book on the shelves. From Archaia Comics, Nick Tapalansky and Alex Eckman-Lawn’s Awakening stands out from the proverbial shambling horde by giving us something that’s certainly unique – Zombie Noir. And it just so happens that Volume Two is hitting stores this week.

“What I wanted to do was utilize the zombie backdrop in a meaningful and slowed down way, something which would allow the characters to first have to come to grips with what's happening, and then search for a cause and solution while the pressure slowly increased,” said Tapalansky, writer of Awakening. “It allowed us to get deep into these characters' heads to see where they were coming from, what they believed, and how issues from their pasts were impacting how they dealt with what was in front of them.”

You're a posting machine this week.

Thanks for all the love for us horror fans lately. Some of us loved zombies before it was cool (and before the advent of cell phones, cable tv, VCRs....)

What can I say, my 4 year old mind was molded by Creature Double Feature. Unfortunately it got stuck at 4 years old.
