Brian Pulido’s Zack The Zombie Exterminator Opens For Business
He’s humanity’s last hope. We’re screwed!
Coffin Comics announced Zack the Zombie Exterminator, a 96 page full color original graphic novel due for release December 2015. Zack is a horror comedy that takes horror very seriously.
A year ago, Zombies started rising here and there. We expected the apocalypse. Instead, we got… pests. Zack Zander is a redneck, metal head with a talent for zombie-splatting. And his whole family gets in on the action. Together, the Zanders make up Z-Gone, “semi-professional” zombie exterminators. And they showcase every second of gory mayhem on YouTube.
Overnight, Zack’s exploits catapult him from viral video joke to primetime hero. With fame come the spoils: cooler clothes, better gear, and a sexy sidekick.
But as Zack’s ego skyrockets and his family ties snap, a cooler crew of zombie killers challenge Z-Gone’s TV supremacy, The Dead Patrol. Soon Zack takes a fall, losing everything—his money, his family, his girl. To make matters worse, an ancient evil rears its ugly head, threatening to bring forth a hellish undead apocalypse.
Now, Zack has one chance to make things right. And all he has to do is kill a horde of flesh hungry zombies and a stop the god of Death from destroying the world.
Zack the Zombie Exterminator is co-written by Mike MacLean (Sharktopus, Dino-Croc vs. SuperGator, Piranhaconda) and Brian Pulido (Lady Death, Evil Ernie, Chaos! Comics, A Nightmare on Elm St., Friday The 13th, Texas Chainsaw Massacre and Chucky) and fiendishly illustrated by industry newcomers Djibril Morissette-Phan (illustrator) and Ceci de la Cruz (color).
“It’s like Wayne’s World meets Dawn of the Dead,” says co-creator Brian Pulido. “The horror is real, but the character’s reactions are where the comedy lies.”
The graphic novel campaign is live on Kickstarter now. Here is the hyperlink: Zack
“We all love AMC’s The Walking Dead. Week after week the show delivers gut-wrenching drama, dangling its characters over the brink of extinction. It’s thrilling, thought-provoking, and… utterly depressing. That’s not Zack,” says Mike Maclean. “Simply stated, Zack the Zombie Exterminator puts the fun back into zombie-splatting.”
