On the heels of the new series’ announcement, Artists, Writers, & Artisans (AWA) Studios has now released eight preview pages of Year Zero #1, the publisher’s take on the zombie apocalypse.

Read the synopsis from AWA 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.
The first issue features a cover by Kaare Andrews, and readers can also look out for a variant cover by Mike Deodato Jr.
