Awakening #1

Watermarked PDF

A series of missing-persons and gruesome murders has begun to unfold in the city of Park Falls.  Derrick Peters, a former member of the Park Falls Police Department, receives a visit from Cynthia Ford one January afternoon.  Cynthia, well known as the town crazy, seems to have finally lost her mind.  She claims to have information about the murders, but does she hold the key to unlocking the mystery or has she truly gone insane?  Derrick Peters isn’t sure what to think when he hears her utter one word in explanation of what’s going on in town:  Zombies.

The first in a 10-issue series of existential horror, written by Nick Tapalansky, art by Alex Eckman-Lawn, letters by Thomas Maurer, and back cover by Teresa Marra.

“5 (out of 5) bullets. A unique experience that is not to be missed.”  — Quinton Peeples, Silver Bullet Comics

“Alex Eckman-Lawn’s dark and gritty style is exactly what you’d hope for this kind of story…. It’s sharp work, incredibly atmospheric.”  — Sean Fahey, Rack Raids<o:p></o:p>

January 23rd, 2014 This was not your standard zombie story. No zombie apocalypse. No collapse of society with a scrappy band of survivors trying to make their way in a hellish world gone wrong. Instead, writer Nick Tapalans [...]

Original electronic
Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
