Coffin Comics announced Zack theExterminator, a 96-page, full-color original graphic novel due for release December 2015. Zack is a -comedy that takes horror very seriously.
A year ago,started rising here and there. We expected the apocalypse. Instead, we got… pests. Zack Zander is a redneck metalhead with a talent for splatting. And his whole family gets in on the action. Together, the Zanders make up Z-Gone, “semi-professional” zombie exterminators. And they showcase every second of gory mayhem on YouTube.
Overnight, Zack’s exploits catapult him from viraljoke to primetime hero. With fame come the spoils: cooler clothes, better gear, and a sexy sidekick.
But as Zack’s ego skyrockets and his family ties snap, a cooler crew of zombie killers challenge Z-Gone’s TV supremacy, The Dead Patrol. Soon Zack takes a fall, losing everything—his money, his family, his girl. To make matters worse, an ancient evil rears its ugly head, threatening to bring forth a hellish undead apocalypse.
Now, Zack has one chance to make things right. And all he has to do is kill a horde of flesh-hungryand stop the god of Death from destroying the world.
Zack the Zombie Exterminator is co-written by Mike MacLean (Sharktopus, Dino-Croc vs. SuperGator, Piranhaconda) and Brian Pulido (Lady Death, Evil Ernie, Chaos! Comics, A Nightmare on Elm St., Friday The 13th, Texas Chainsaw Massacre, and Chucky) and fiendishly illustrated by industry newcomers Djibril Morissette-Phan (illustrator) and Ceci de la Cruz (color).
“It’s like Wayne’s World meets Dawn of the Dead,” says co-creator Brian Pulido. “The horror is real, but the characters’ reactions are where the comedy lies.”
The graphic novel, along with several limited editions and other cool collectibles will be available during a 30-day Kickstarter campaign that launched yesterday, September 30, 2015. Make your contribution here.
“We all love AMC’s. Week after week the show delivers gut-wrenching drama, dangling its characters over the brink of extinction. It’s thrilling, thought-provoking, and… utterly depressing. That’s not Zack,” says Mike Maclean. “Simply stated, Zack the Zombie Exterminator puts the fun back into zombie splatting.”
From the twisted minds of Brian Pulido and Mike MacLean comes the rise, fall, and redemption of an American original, Zack the Zombie Exterminator.
Zack The Zombie Exterminator began as a short film produced in conjunction with SyFy and Eric Fox. You can watch the short at www.ZackZX.com or just below
