We’ve waited, cautiously looking over our shoulders, reading our copies of The Zombie Survival Guide, and watching Space Balls over and over again. But finally…at long last, the first issue of Max Brooks’ new mega-series, Extinction Parade is out and in comic shops everywhere!
The vampire race has always been above it all. Above their human prey. And certainly above the shambling subdead zombie race. But in their state of uncompromising privilege, they failed to see the world changing beneath their feet. And now…as the zombie virus turns the tide over the human race, at long last, they begin to see…a war is coming. And to lose it means extinction for vampires and humans alike.
This is the horror event of the year. Get in on the ground floor by picking up the first issue and experiencing the initial chapter of Max Brooks’ Extinction Parade!
Tomorrow is the day. June 19th. Issue #1 of Max Brooks’ new Zombies vs Vampires comic series will be on local comic shop shelves and the horror event of the year will begin!
Call it a lucky guess, but we think the comic book is going to fly off shelves. There are still a few copies available for retailers to order, but those of us who are Max Brooks fans know just how vast his fan base is. And the good money is on that first issue selling out immediately tomorrow and commanding big bucks on the eBay marketplace.
All the pieces are in place and the fans in the know are going to benefit. All signs point to a lot of folks clamoring to get copies when the first issue hits. Be there first at your local comic shop so you can be the vampire watching the shambling masses who can’t get copies of Extinction Parade #1!
Vampires and Zombies from the creator of World War Z? Yes, please. Out this week worldwide, check out the preview below:
It’s finally here – the long awaited first issue of Max Brooks’ new Zombies vs. Vampires series, Extinction Parade! This week, before fans go to see the theatrical release of World War Z, comic book shops will have the most anticipated horror comic book release of the summer on their shelves.
Max Brooks has entertained millions with his prose novels The Zombie Survival Guide and World War Z. The graphic novel adaptation of The Zombie Survival Guide: Recorded Attacks was a bestselling GN that introduced his fans to the sequential art medium. Now those same readers will be looking for copies of this new Extinction Parade original series to get in on the ground floor of his newest vision of terror.
Vampires have always been the elite of the undead. These apex predators have never feared foe or lack of food…until now. By remaining too out of touch with the modern world they have failed to notice the subdead zombie race turning the tide over the human population. Now, perhaps too late, the vampires must stop the encroaching shambling dead or find themselves starved out of existence.
The Extinction Parade #1 Leather cover edition was allocated – stores received fewer than ordered of the premium edition. Talk to your local comic shop retailer to make sure your reserved copy of Extinction Parade is ready and waiting for you this Wednesday!
Kieron Gillen had an opportunity to talk with GNN the Geek News Network recently at the Phoenix Comicon. His conversation covered reaction to his hit new series, Uber, and the true horror of both the real war and the events taking place in the series. Fans of Uber understand that the comic is really powerful. Gillen researches and presents the darkest corners of World War II alongside the unfolding events related to the arrival of the Ubers.
Uber #0 and #1 were instantly sold out and Uber #2 is running very low at the distribution level. Fans have really embraced Gillen’s redefining of the super soldier and the race for the world to catch up and create their own nationalistic forces. With no punches pulled the team of Gillen and White have created something that is truly horrifying on many levels. Now is the time to jump into Uber and see for yourself what has everyone talking.
Fans and collectors are counting down the days until Max Brooks’ brings his first all-original comic book creation to shops worldwide! Extinction Parade #1 is the launch of the Zombies vs Vampires war that the Zombie Survival Guide and World War Z scribe has set in motion. Initial reviews of the comic are staggeringly positive – featuring the phenomenal art of Raulo Caceres and the unmistakable voice of Max Brooks, this initial issue is going to explode with fans.
Investors have also started to circle the wagons realizing the simple economics of the project. Max Brooks has sold millions of copies of his novels and the graphic novel, Recorded Attacks. And the first prints of the comic series are only enough to cover a small portion of his fan base. Some speculators are predicting an eBay run as comic shops sell out of the first issue. Right now, Diamond Comic Distributors has limited quantities of the first issues available – except for the Leather Cover Edition which is pre-sold out and allocated to retailers.
Wednesday 6/19 is the day that Extinction Parade will be on store shelves and available for everyone. But check with your retailer to make sure your copy is reserved…we expect the extra copies to be on the endangered species list along with the human race in the new horror driven story-line!
There are comics that we read because we “always have” or because its the latest buzz item from our favorite reviewers. And then there are comics that are just too good to miss. David Lapham’s Ferals is one book that from the start has been superb. It takes the strength of Lapham’s crime noir background and combines it with a visceral world and interesting characters to create something wholly original.
Ferals #15 reveals more of the mad Doctor Cherry’s true goals and how far he is willing to go to achieve them. To him…Feral people aren’t “people” at all…but animals to do what he pleases with. But if there is one thing we’ve learned from seeing Dale Chesnutt’s struggles as a newly Feral man, it’s that no one controls a she-wolf. And the good doctor is about to find that out up close and personal.
If you are a fan of strong comic book storytelling – you have to be reading this book. Pick up the first trade collection and it will hook you with one of the best horror stories being told today.
The second volume to David Lapham’s violent re-imagining of the werewolf mythology is here. If Ferals Vol 1 is the “small story” of Dale Chesnutt and how he falls under the thrall of a she-wolf, then Vol 2 could be called “escalation.” The FBI has recruited Dale to act on their behalf in uncovering the mystery of the Feral bloodline. But Dale is changing…he’s become something more than human and no matter what he does, it seems that misery is his constant companion.
David Lapham’s fans have really enjoyed this series. With the best of his vivid creativity developing strong character drama alongside horrifically violent action, Ferals has become the go-to source for fans looking for no-holds-barred fiction. Ferals has that rare mix of ingredients that creates a story that resonates with readers. Paired up with the incredible artwork of Gabriel Andrade, Lapham struck a chord with comic fans that have been yearning for a werewolf series that drops the silly superstitions and simply delivers a hardcore thrill ride.
Try out the Ferals collections in comic shops this week and enter a world of blood drenched violence and horror that will leave you howling for more.
The creeping death of the cursed Stitched invade a new country as the ancient killing machines arrive on the streets of Tokyo. Mike Wolfer presents the third Stitched story arc, beginning here in issue #14, which takes Garth Ennis’ evil supernatural weapons out of the desert and into the big city.
A yakuza rival has acquired several Stitched and the secrets behind them from a mysterious Nameless One. Now the mean streets of Japan are turning red as the unstoppable monstrosities meet the heavily armed and honor-less criminal organization. But as we have seen time and time again, no modern man can hope to contain these monsters for long. Short term vengeance will make way for long term devastation at the unyielding hands of the Stitched.
Fans looking for a new take on ancient terror should give Stitched a try. Garth Ennis has once again taken the seeds of horror and sewn them into a terrifying concept that takes readers out of their comfort zones and gives them something truly horrifying to enjoy. Horror legend, Mike Wolfer, takes the terror one step further with the continuing story of the soulless monsters of the ancient sands.
Fans of David Lapham’s horror comics know you can expect him to spin a tale that gets under your skin. In some cases like Ferals and Caligula, it’s more literal than others. This week saw the release of Caligula: Heart of Rome #5 in comic shops. The Caligula sequel has quietly continued in the tradition Lapham set forth of making the most disturbing images possible.
Lapham’s Caligula is one part historical figure, two parts supernatural possession story, and all twisted. The demons that surround Caligula, as he strives to be reborn into Rome after the events of the first series, are more twisted and ruthless than the most vile human. And the monsters created by those who have suffered Caligula’s wrath are even more frightening still.
If you want to try something different – reach for Caligula: Heart of Rome at the comic shop this week. It will unsettle you and give you something completely original to be afraid of.
