So it seems that Ken Haeser and Buz Hasson have created a character called The Living Corpse, who happens to be a zombie who doesn't eat human brains and acts as a gatekeeper between the horrors of the undead and the land of the living. It also seems that Dynamite has picked up their independent horror-comedy book and will be launching a new series this August, as well as releasing a trade paperback of all nine of their previous Living Corpse issues.
"I couldn't be happier to have found a home with Dynamite," says Haeser. "They have a great, growing line of horror-themed comics like Army of Darkness, Vampirella and the Chaos! comic characters. I know we are in great hands with them."
"Being involved with Dynamite is a dream come true," Hasson adds. "They're an A-list comic company and I'm honored to have the Living Corpse become a house name for them."
Also, there's no sneezing at this: Dynamite is also offering the complete first issue of the original Living Corpse series to download for free.
Even bigger than that is the fact that Shoreline Entertainment is even offering up a CG animated feature film based on The Living Corpse, due out sometime this year as well.
"Ken and Buz are both great talents who have a dedicated audience, and we hope to create additional awareness and build on their audience. Their comic is really cool, and we're enjoying working with him on The Living Corpse," Dynamite President and Publisher Nick Barrucci explains. "I am so glad that we are able to bring fans the next chapter!"
