(Author of the Upcoming 'Zombie Cop' Graphic Novel)
Will Be At The Phoenix Comic Con!
January 23rd thru 25th, 2009!
Jeff Mariotte... one of my newest Facebook Friends informs me that he will be there with his latest published work!
Jeff messaged me the following comment:
"My new graphic novel ZOMBIE COP will be making its debut there! Although it goes on sale Jan. 14th from Image Comics/Shadowline, I'm not doing any events until the con."
So of course I wanted to mention this in our Blog, especially if you are a fan of Jeff's and would like to see him there!So what is his new graphic novel about? Well it's a story that "is deliberately vague about time and place. It’s basically now, and it’s set in a big American city. But the city is never named and the time is never specifically mentioned. It’s a story that could happen anywhere, anytime that a zombie breakout occurs."
More particulars on this graphic novel: "Joe Mundy is a doomed cop, desperately clinging to the last vestiges of his humanity before the virus that infected him turns him into a zombie. Will he have enough time to solve the mystery of what cause the virus to strike his city, before he succumbs to his horrific fate? Alternately humorous, horrific, tender and tragic, Zombie Cop will have you questioning just what it means to be human!"

Thanks Jeff for bringing your graphic novel to my attention! And blog readers don't forget it goes on sale January 14th at all your usual sources!
BTW, Jeff is also the author of several genre’s of books, from Spider-Man to CSI: Miami, to Star Trek, and even to Conan! Plus Jeff is writing a four-issue movie adaptation of the upcoming film Terminator: Salvation, that Tina and I previewed at the San Diego Comic Con International last July! The film looks so cool that I kept my Film Promo T-Shirt instead of selling it, LOL!
