Former Canine TV Star Braves Zombie Apocalypse In Oni Press’s Dead Of Winter #1

by Hannah Means Shannon

 

This Week, Oni Press debuts comic series Dead of Winter, based on the tabletop game by Plaid Hat.

Dead of Winter is written by Kyle Starks, whose hilarious work on Sex Castle and Rock Candy Mountain bode well for this comic, and it is illustrated by Gabo (The Life After).

Dead of Winter features beloved dog Sparky, who survives in a wintry apocalypse of the undead. This “former TV star turned zombie killing machine” just wants to make friends and be a good boy, according to Oni Press.

Oni asks: “As his fellow survivors scavenge for supplies in the frigid wasteland, will Sparky be able to protect his companions from threats both undead and not yet undead?”

Here’s our preview of issue #1 of Dead of Winter, landing in shops on Wednesday, August 2nd, 2017:
