For the first time Deadworld in full color!

Before there was The Walking Dead there was Deadworld. Considered by many to be the godfather of the original zombie comic with over 100 issues and graphic novels in print and over 1,000,000 copies sold, Deadworld ripped into the undead with intelligent zombies on a mission and a group of poor teens riding in a school bus desperately try to stay one step ahead of the sadistic, Harley-riding King Zombie.

Designed to stand on its own, the story line picks up the pieces of Deadworld: Slaughterhouse as it returns to the sanctuary known as Safe Haven. A small outpost, remnants of a twisted scientist's scheme gone wrong to defeat the plague, holds out against the army of King Zombie. Their secret weapon are the Lepers - victims of a bizarre experiment that left them with dead skin in breathing husks...with flesh that even zombies won't touch. It is a war of intelligence versus primal instincts - the will to survive against the craving for flesh. It is a war of those with dead carcasses inhabited by living minds against those that are totally lifeless. It is a War of the Dead.
