With the financial, human and political costs of combat in the Middle East growing, the United States military has adopted an unusual, but highly effective, new weapon… zombies.
That’s the premise for ZMD: ZOMBIES OF MASS DESTRUCTION, a new action-horror comic series coming this summer from Red 5 Comics and acclaimed creator, Kevin Grevioux. A prolific comic writer, Grevioux is perhaps best known as the creator of the UNDERWORLD movie franchise, and recently wrapped production in New Zealand on the third installment — UNDERWORLD: RISE OF THE LYCANS.
“ZMD: ZOMBIES OF MASS DESTRUCTION is a bit of a return to my horror roots,” said Grevioux. “Prior to creating this series, I was never really a big fan of zombies. But I came up with what I felt was an interesting twist on the genre and I’m thankful that Paul Ens and Scott Chitwood were open to the idea.”
Air-dropped into the deadliest hot zones, the walking dead of ZMD: ZOMBIES OF MASS DESTRUCTION indiscriminately infect every last warring insurgent — on either side of the conflict. Specifically engineered to be photosensitive, once enemy infection becomes complete by dawn, both the originals and newly created zombies dissolve as a means to control widespread and accidental zombification. This allows live soldiers to enter and safely occupy the now-combatant-free territory. However, this plan takes a deadly turn when one of the U.S. zombies, dubbed — ZOMBIE ZERO — fails to dissolve at the expected time, and begins to wreak havoc in the Middle East by creating others like him. This leads the U.S. military brass to send in a special operative to quietly take out Zombie Zero and his minions before their existence becomes known to the rest of the world.
