"I'm not trying to scare anybody. If that somehow happens as a result of reading this comic, that's great, but really... that's not what this book is about. What you now hold in your hands is the most serious piece of work I've done so far in my career. I'm the guy that created Battle Pope; I hope you guys realize what a stretch this is for me. It's really not that hard to beliece when you realize that I'm delving into subject matter that is so utterly serious and dramatic...
To me the best zombie movies aren't the splatter fests of gore and violence with goofy characters and tongue in cheek antics. Good zombies show us how messed up we are, they make us question our station in society... and our society's station in the world. They show us gore and violence and all that cool stuff too... but there's always an undercurrent of social commentary and thoughtfulness."
I couldn't agree more. Night of the Living Dead just wasn't a great scary movie, but it's undercurrent of social commentary, in this case racism, was a also fantastic. It dealt with an extremely important issue in the United States, at a time it was not only relevant but also volatile. This is the beauty of Sci-Fi, horror, comics, they all take a stand and bring issues to light in ways that we don't at 1st realize and in ways that are far better than "legit" drama. These genres take relevant, seriously important and at times volatile issues and present them in clever, unique and thought provoking material. It's why I've always been a fan of these genres since I was a kid and continue to be a fan as an adult. I can't wait to get the books in this series and devour them like a zombie on a slow fat kid!
