Moore and Reppion back to Raise the Dead

US publisher Dynamite’s hit series Raise the Dead returns with an all-new tale of undead debauchery, plotted by British creators Leah Moore & John Reppion, scripted by Mike Raicht, and with art by Guiu Vilanova.

Raise the Dead 2 #1, which will arrive in comic shops this December, also features a cover by the amazing Lucio Parrillo, with a 1-in-10 incentive cover by Vilanova.

In issue #1, the zombie infestation continues unchecked and only a handful of survivors fight for their lives against the rising tide of un-dead mayhem. Will these poor souls find hope in the small coastal town of Alfredo Bay or has that world died along with most everything else in this post apocalyptic nightmare?

“I’m so excited to be working with Leah Moore, John Reppion, Guiu Vilanova and everyone else at Dynamite on the follow-up to Raise the Dead,” says scripter Mike Raicht. “I loved picking up the first volume with all of the twists and turns it provided.

“As most people might guess, I’m a huge zombie fan. Working on this book with John and Leah has been an awesome experience! As for the new volume… our heroes have made it to the small coastal town of Alfredo Bay hoping that it provides them a bit of a respite from the zombie onslaught. Does it?

“Well if it did, that might make for a pretty boring book. In this new volume, we introduce some new characters, catch up with some old ones and, of course, have a bucket load of zombies and gore to throw at you.

“And just wait until you see what Guiu Vilanova has been cooking up for the art. I’ve seen the pages for the first issue and a half and I’m even a little skeeved out by the whole thing!”
