Dawn of the Dead in Comic Form




This is the 3-issue Dawn of the Dead series put out by IDW Publishing a few years back. I believe this series was put out to coincide with the release of the remake, even though it's based on George Romero's original film and not the remake. It was adapted for the 6 5/8 x 10 1/4" page by Steve Niles and the artwork is credited to Chee. I'm personally not a big fan of the artwork (aside from the awesome covers by Katherine S. Kolbert), as someone on Amazon.com stated, it kinda resembles the artwork found on those airplane safety pamphlets. But I'm sure you fellow fans of all things undead will still want to check these out.

I recommend CDisplay for reading the comics, but if you don't want to install yet another program on your computer you can also use WinRAR to open them. As always thanks go out to the kind individual(s) who took the time to scan these issues.

Phelpster,
Many thanks for this. Have been a huge fan of anything dawn/dead related and loved the remake too!
Heard about this a while back and now I can take a look. Cheers.

well i dont know about it looking like airplane pamps. To me it looks alot like its the same artist who does all those movie parodies in mad magazine. And while i like the art. It isnt very fitting for a story such as this.
