DEAD OF WINTER is a new horror-comedy mini-series based on the smash hit tabletop board games by Plaid Hat Games. Featuring the talents of Eisner Award-nominated writer Kyle Starks (Rick and Morty, Rock Candy Mountain) and Eisner Award-nominated artist Gabo (The Life After, Elephantmen), and cover art illustrated by Brian Hurtt and Bill Crabtree (The Sixth Gun, The Damned), Dead of Winter arrives in comic shops this August. Fans and retailers can also look forward to a pretty freaking funny variant cover by Erica Henderson (The Unbeatable Squirrel Girl, Jughead), as well.
In the pantheon of heroes, none are more lovable and loyal than everyone’s beloved good ol’ dog, Sparky. Surviving in the wintery apocalypse of the undead, this former TV star turned zombie killing machine just wants to make friends and be a good boy. As his fellow survivors scavenge for supplies in the frigid wasteland, will Sparky be able to protect his companions from threats both undead and not yet undead?
A hilarious mix of The Walking Dead and Airbud (no, really), the Dead of Winter comic series draws from the incredibly fun and diverse sandbox of characters from the hit board games, starring fan-favorite canine, Sparky the Stunt Dog.
Oni Press Senior Editor Charlie Chu gushes, “Plaid Hat’s Dead of Winter is one of my all-time favorite board games, with its sandbox of fun and diverse characters. Just like in the game, fall in love with Sparky all over again as he becomes a zombie murdering machine while keeping precious morale high.”
After an ambush leaves Detroit Special Ops Officer Jutte Shelley left for dead (and the rest of her squad DEFINITELY dead), she decides to go into the family business. You see, Jutte’s actually a Frankenstein, and thanks to her ancestors’ various experiments, she has the ability and the know-how to bring people back from the dead. So that’s exactly what she does with her squad: brings them back to life (using some non-human parts in the process) so they can get revenge on those who had the audacity to try and kill them.
Spectacle, Volume 1 is slated for publication in Winter 2018.
