Stranded in Switzerland, his criminal network in tatters, and with the world believing him dead, the world’s most notorious villain, Professor James Moriarty, faces his greatest challenge yet – taking care of an orphaned child. Bound by a solemn promise, and determined to seek revenge against a local madman, Moriarty begins a clever campaign to work his way inside his enemy’s fortress. The trap is set, and Moriarty is determined to succeed, but is he villainous enough for the task?

FC • 168 pages • $17.99 • Teen+

A small outbreak can turn into a worldwide apocalypse... but only through a long string of screw-ups! Once actual zombies begin popping up in our world, a lone intelligence analyst realizes real-life events are beginning to mimic the events of a long-lost, Grade-Z, drive-in horror flick. As he races to save humanity with this knowledge, he quickly learns the only thing more dangerous than ravenous walking corpses is the ineptitude of the living! The gutsplitting (and then eating) comedy that pokes fun at the zombie horror phenomenon! Illustrated in graytones with red highlights (for blood and gore, of course), so it feels like the ever-popular The Walking Dead series. Collects the complete storyline from issues #1-5 of The Mocking Dead comic book series, complete with a cover gallery!

Collection Features:

• Issues 1-5 of The Mocking Dead by Fred Van Lente and Max Dunbar

• Introduction by David Wellington

• Script to issue one by Fred Van Lente

• Sketches by Max Dunbar

• Complete cover gallery featuring art by Bill Tortolini and Max Dunbar

“Plenty of laugh-out-loud moments!” – Major Spoilers

“Max Dunbar’s art add volumes to the enjoyment of this title. His renderings are funny, gross, and graphic.” – Unleash The Fanboy

“The Mocking Dead is very meta, pretty funny, and awfully clever.” – Multiversity Comics

“Fred Van Lente already did a great job on the subject (of zombie parodies) with his work on Marvel Zombies, but damned if he didn’t manage to find a unique approach to the concept with Mocking Dead.” – Comic Book Resources
