“I am deeply disappointed that the comics reading public continues to encourage Max Dunbar’s and my shenanigans, as it proves you are severely lacking in good taste and/or moral rectitude,” states writer Fred Van Lente. “I am afraid you leave Max and I no choice but to continue carpet-bombing the undead with jokes and satire until The Zombie Apocalypse is no longer viable as a genre in America.”
“I’m really proud of the success The Mocking Dead is having, and the series has been getting rave reviews online. The creative team has been putting their all in to the series and deserve all of the recognition.” says Nick Barrucci, CEO and Publisher of Dynamite Entertainment. “Cody Ferrell of Comic Book Therapy said, ‘I’d like to share one Mocking Dead review in particular ‘The Mocking Dead proves you really do need another zombie comic.’ At a time when zombies are hot and everyone’s scrambling to contribute to the marketplace, isn’t that the best endorsement you can get – the fact that an ingenious spoof stands decapitated head and shoulders above the competition? Fred and Max are telling a straight on fun story with no moral goal and is just plain fun, and we’re thrilled that comic fans are taking notice of fun filled series.”
From the New York Times bestselling writer of the Marvel Zombies series comes a gut-splitting (then eating) comedy! From acclaimed Marvel Zombies writer Fred Van Lente comes The Mocking Dead! The Mocking Dead is a tongue-in-cheek look at the wildly popular zombie genre, with amazing interior art from Max Dunbar, colored in a unique black, white, and red pattern. Featuring an incredible and unique design Zombie Caution cover by Bill Tortolini as well as a Subscription only cover from Max Dunbar himself, he Mocking Dead is available in comic book stores and digitally!
