NEW Night of the Living Dead Universe Stories In “Genesis #3”
If you’re unfamiliar with Double Take’s line of books, they’re set in the world of The Night of the Living Dead, but the charming thing is that they’re not regurgitating the original movie. Instead they’re drawing inspiration from the film.
Double Take Comics has announced a new no fail Kickstarter to promote the third issue Super Packs in the Night of the Living Dead Universe that launched in 2015. The Kickstarter is being used as a pre-order vehicle instead of traditional crowdfunding. With a modest goal that has already been reached fans can donate without risk of the campaign failing. Double Take has created pledge levels for existing as well as new readers. They have also created a package specifically for retailers. Think you know everything about the cult classic Night of The Living Dead? Think again. This world has been built around the zombie outbreak and one movie couldn’t hope to contain this outbreak! Check out the Kickstarter at https://www.kickstarter.com/
“Kickstarter was originally created to give anyone a chance to create something amazing. We are simply using that intent in a completely different way,” explained Double Take’s Sales and Marketing Manager Gabe Yocum. “We have established sales with both the book and direct markets and we know full well how large and important the Kickstarter community is. This is just one more way to reach out to our readers.”

ABOUT DOUBLE TAKE
Double Take (2T) is launching a new comic book universe.

You can follow your favorite characters from the film, from their first appearances through their dying breaths, to their first baby zombie steps.
