2T Unleashes the “Night of the Living Dead” in a Big Way

Posted on May 12, 2015 at 5:24 pm by Tyler Waterman

You ever notice how zombies seem to start as a trickle, but before you know it you’re surrounded by a hoard? Double Take has pulled the same trick with its zombie comics! When we last talked about Double Take’s Night of the Living Dead-themed line of comics, we only had three shambling members of the undead to worry about. However, in the blink of an eye, we’re suddenly dealing with ten!

Zombies are so dang sneaky.

Take a look at the now-massive rollout of Double Take’s Night of the Living Dead line below, and try not to get bit!

Double Take Makes September The Month of the Living Dead

On September 16, 2015, Double Take (2T) will release all 10 1st issues of its 1st 10 series of Ultimate Night of the Living Dead. 2T has assembled 10 teams of talented storytellers; each is creating an original series of stories. Each series is interesting, informative and funny in its own way. Together they weave into a common universe. “Originally, we were thinking of trickling out a couple series of every month or so, building up our roster over time,” said 2T GM Bill Jemas. “Now we’re planning to launch our new universe in one big bang.”

In late March 2015, 2T announced the first three books of the series (Rise, Home and Z-Men) for their September launch. Today, the Company is announcing the final seven books of the universe including Honor, Lab, Spring, Remote, Medic, Dedication, and Soul.

In addition, 2T is launching a Kickstarter campaign in support of Ultimate Night of the Living Dead. Fans and Retailers alike can save money while getting access to great comics and other goodies. “Kickstarter is a great way to reach out to readers, to learn what they like and don’t like,” said Robert Meyers, 2T’s Managing Editor.

Finally, 2T is announcing an innovative offer – in addition to offering single copies, 2T will collect all 10 1st issues in one Super Pack at a fantastic discount. Right now, you can preview the 1st scenes of our 1st stories on your phone at doubletakeuniverse.com and pre-order a Super Pack on Kickstarter.com.

About Night of the Living Dead

As you may know, the 1968 film is in the public domain. All of us here at Double Take admire and respect the creators, cast and crew, but, no one affiliated with the Night of the Living Dead film is in any way involved in the creation of 2T’s stories.
2T’s 1st stories start in the world established by the Night of the Living Dead. Then we let our imaginations and our zombies run wild. Mostly, our creators are telling new stories starring new characters. But, if you love the classic film, you won’t be disappointed; you can follow your favorite characters from their first appearances, through their dying breaths, to their first baby Zombie steps.
