This title is right up my alley, got this added to my pull. Anyone else checking this out? It’s coming out in July and there’s some preview pages. Warning it’s mature content and if you don’t like to see images of children being stabbed like SIKTC, don’t click
It sounds pretty cool and I trust Heavy Metal. Says the writer has a passion for survival horror and a fan of Romero. That’s all I need to hear lol. I’m reading The Rise right now, some of these new Heavy Metal titles are great.
This book looks good. I’ll see if my LCS can order me a copy. I would order from Heavy Metal’s web site but they don’t bag and board and they mail in flimsy mailers. My The Rise copies came like that so yeah…
Should be readily available. I know a lot of my shops here carry lots of copies from Heavy Metal but that may not be the case for other stores. The Rise did sneak up on a lot of people so who knows.
I ordered a few when going through previews. Seems interesting.
I remember when they announced the, “Virus,” imprint. It was right around when COVID-19 was becoming an issue and I wondered if they would change the name. They kept it!
