Mr. Insignares and his staff will have a booth at the upcoming Spooky Empire's Ultimate Horror Weekend on October 9-11 in Orlando, FL. He continued, "We foresee this comic book selling out fast and are therefore giving the horror fans a chance to pre-order the first issue for a special price at the event or at In addition, we will be running several on-line auctions to give readers an opportunity to be illustrated in the comic book as a zombie." (Proceeds to benefit the Hero Initiative Charity)

Synopsis: A group of merciless prisoners agree to a near suicide mission on a remote island in exchange for their freedom.  Their mission soon takes a horrific turn as they discover the island is crawling with hordes of ravenous zombies.
