Zombies in ‘Nam? It must be ’68 again!

Comics, Events

The creators of the Vietnam War-era zombie comic ’68 are relaunching the title with a limited-edition print at Phoenix Comicon, Memorial Day Weekend at the Phoenix Convention Center and Hyatt Regency.

’68 is published by Image Comics with Mark Kidwell ( Bump, Frazetta’s Dark Kingdom), Nat Jones (Frazetta’s Death Dealer, Rob Zombie’s The Nail) and Jay Fotos (Frazetta’s Death Dealer, Locke & Key).

The ’68 miniseries picks up right where the original tale left off and broadens its scope, encompassing not only the gore-soaked horrors of the war in Vietnam, but fixing a bloodshot eye on the politically torn USA as the dead rise, heralding the apocalypse and devouring anything with a pulse.

To celebrate the continuation of ’68, Kidwell, Jones and Fotos will be attending the 2010 Phoenix Comicon, May 27-30, 2010. The creators are proud to present an exclusive, limited edition print — a gruesome, full-color 11″ x 17″ depiction of Napalm Charlie — signed by Kidwell, Jones and Fotos.
