Animals vs. Zombies in Rex, Zombie Killer #1!

January 9, 2012 - In April 2012, comic book publisher Big Dog Ink will release the hounds, as three dogs, a cat, and a gorilla with a baseball bat battle the walking dead in Rex, Zombie Killer #1.

In the wake of a zombie apocalypse, a hyper-intelligent Golden Retriever named Rex, a sign language-speaking gorilla, and a small pack of animals begin a perilous cross-country journey to find safety...and a home.

"I've always wondered what happens to pets when the zombies arrive," explained writer Rob Anderson. "And I've always loved stories that show the heart and tenacity of animals, like WE3 and Homeward Bound / The Incredible Journey."

"In Rex, ZK, the animals are trying to make their way across California to an underground government bunker where the scientist who raised Rex is now in hiding. But Rex isn't necessarily revealing everything he knows about the situation to his pack."

"This is a story I've been wanting to tell since at least 2008, because it combines three of my big passions: animals, zombies and comic books," Anderson said.

"My constant writing companions are my dog and cat, and they're well trained for the coming zombie apocalypse with their patented 'play dead' routine."

The book was also a perfect fit for cover and interior artist DaFu Yu. "From an artistic standpoint, I love drawing monsters, and zombies fit in that category," Yu said. "I'm already detail-oriented in my style, but I go a little crazy when I draw zombies!"

Big Dog Ink Publisher, Tom Hutchinson, added, "This giant-sized one-shot is the latest addition to our creator-owned titles, and it's a unique, high quality story at a special price. We're very excited to add it to the BDI catalog!"

Rex, Zombie Killer #1 is written by Rob Anderson (Animal Control: Special Creatures Unit, Great Zombies in History) with interior and cover art by DaFu Yu (Grimm Fairy Tales, Wonderland Annual), colors by Kevin Volo, letters and design by E.T. Dollman, and edited by Paul Allor (Clockwork).

The double-sized, 56-page one-shot ships in April at a special price of only $3.50, and will be available for pre-order in the February 2012 Diamond Previews catalog. The comic book will be in full color in standard comic book format. It is rated PG-13 for mature themes and violence. Additional one-shots are planned for the future.
