Issue Four features five cover variants, by 2000AD artists Stephen Sampson, Dom Reardon, Paul Peart-Smith, David Millgate and Ryan Brown, who have all contributed their vision to the zombie apocalypse.
Stephen Sampson has illustrated “Judge Anderson”, “Harmony”, and “Brit-Cit Babes”, amongst others.
Dom Reardon is the UK’s answer to Mike Mignola and co-created Caballistics INC.
Paul Peart-Smith has illustrated “Judge Hershey”, “Judge Dredd”, “Slaughterbowl” and “Harke and Burr”.
David Millgate co-created “Sinister Dexter”, and drew “Mean Machine Angel” and “Outlaw”.
