MIG.Biz has announced the April release of a 56-page full color, magazine-size comic book adaptation of the new Dawn of the Dead movie from Universal. Dawn of the Dead captured the number one spot at the box office last weekend earning more than $27 million (see 'Zombies Shamble to Number One'). The Dawn of the Dead comic book adaptation features artwork by Miguel A. Insignares, who has worked on numerous Hollywood films doing set dressing and storyboards, and comic book industry veteran Dick Giordano, a longtime DC Comics Editor and more recently a key member of the Future Comics team.
The Dawn of the Dead comic is designed to appeal to fans of horror films, who want a souvenir of the most popular zombie film of the Twenty-First Century (at least so far). The full color, oversized, 56-page book will carry a cover price of $6.95. Distribution details will announced shortly. Stay tuned for further developments.
