Zombies, SF action adventure and more in latest 100% Biodegradable

Biodegradable Issue 14 - Cover

The latest issue of the digital anthology comic 100% Biodegradable (Issue 14) is on sale now, wrapped in an awesome cover by Brett Burbridge. Here’s the full rundown, and yes, I’ll admit to some bias for this marvellous title, given editor Dave Hailwood‘s support for my “WarWorldz” project, which includes the strip “Death Duty” I’m co-writing with him drawn by Brett. It’s been great fun to work on this so far, and the team, which includes letterer Ken Reynolds, have been fantastic throughout.

A collection of the first 48-page “Death Duty” story is in the planning stages and we’re already throwing around ideas for the second SF action adventure story.
