Issue one (volume one) The very first issue of Deadworld!!!
A group of teens hide out in a school bus trying to find out what happened and how it has become a world of zombies. The initial group consists of JOHN and his younger brother, JOEY. Two friends who are known for their stance on anti-authority and suspected of being dope pushers, Mickey and DAN. MIKE, who is the self-appointed leader and his girlfriend, CHRIS, and DONNA who has fallen for Dan. The group tries to figure out what they should do and accumulate supplies. They decide to leave the Baton Rouge area and head west, towards California. But when they meet intelligent zombies, they realize that perhaps, the trek won’t be as easy as they thought.
A supernatural plague has been unleashed on the world. The dead return to walk the earth...but this is no standard zombie story. The dead are just soldiers for those who have crossed the Gateway. The leader zombies are intelligent, sadistic, and in addition to having a hankering for flesh, enjoy the tortuous ordeals they put the surviving humans through.
Leader of the zombies is the intelligent, Harley riding, sarcastic being known as King Zombie. Killing humans is just a sideline to his cruel methods as he seeks to find a way to open the gates permanently and take over the earth.
Deadworld is a horror comic that attacks the zombie menace from a different perspective. In addition to having intelligent zombies with a goal and mission, Deadworld is also exploring the human interactions as mankind finds itself facing extinction. While some groups organize in the best interests of self-preservation, others use this as an opportunity to explore their own self deluded dreams.
Deadworld is a story of horror...of survival...of hope and despair. It is an ongoing saga of modern man facing his darkest side...where science and technology are no longer his allies...where his power of reasoning is no longer his weapon alone. Deadworld is death, yet life.
