Artists, Writers & Artisans (AWA) Studios has added another title to their lineup this spring. The new publisher has announced Year Zero #1. The book takes the zombie apocalypse theme to a global level and features a diverse lineup of characters fighting to survive. Read the synopsis here:
Ben Percy (Wolverine) and Ramon Rosanas (Star Wars: Age of Resistance) team up to present an epic tale that offers a global look at the Zombie Apocalypse. A Japanese hitman, a Mexican street urchin, an Afghan military aide, a Polar research scientist, a Midwestern American survivalist – five survivors of a horrific global epidemic who must draw upon their unique skills and deepest instincts to navigate a world of shambling dead. Year Zero wrestles with the weighty moral and theological questions posed by the pandemic and investigates its cause and possible cure.
At the helm is writer Benjamin Percy fresh off his work on Wolverine. The series features art by Ramon Rosanas and colors by Lee Loughridge. Rounding out the creative team is letterer Sal Cipriano. The first issue’s cover artist is Kaare Andrews, and readers can also look out for a variant cover by Mike Deodato Jr.
Year Zero #1 hits comic shops on April 1. Check out more info on AWA’s website. Take a look at a trailer for the book below.
