All New Horrifying Series of the Living Dead Continues From Dynamite Entertainment
February 13, 2007, Runnemede, NJ – Dynamite Entertainment releases images and information showcasing the second issue of the terrifying new series Raise The Dead. Raise the Dead is being written by Leah Moore and John Reppion, with illustrations by Dynamite’s latest up and coming artistic sensation Hugo Petrus! Scheduled for an April release, Raise The Dead #2 will be available with covers by Arthur Suydam and Sean Phillips, both of Marvel Zombie fame!
Stated Dynamite, “What has been released about Raise the Dead so far has fans drooling like a zombie after fresh brains! Leah Moore and John Reppion are working in a world on the brink of an undead apocalypse – their story wastes no time getting into the thick of a genuine zombie tale! And for anyone who hasn’t seen the sneak peeks of the interiors- Hugo Petrus may be producing some the best undead pages to hit the stands ever! And once again, it’s all topped off with a another round of ghoulish covers as Arthur Suydam continues to bring classics back from the dead by “zombie homage” to a vintage Norman Rockwell image while Sean Phillips’ contribution lets fans get up close and personal with a Zombie that’s all bite!”
When asked about the secrets of Raise The Dead, co-writer Leah Moore stated, “Well I can’t reveal too much, but there is an unexpected element which even the characters aren’t ready for. Someone in the Raise The Dead world is slightly better prepared for the outbreak than the rest of them. That person might be only adding to the mayhem, but maybe they have the solution…we have to wait and see.”
