THE STAKES ARE RAISED IN ISSUE NUMBER FOUR OF
P.M.A.C.: WHEN ZOMBIES ATTACK!!
ON THE RISE, THIS SUMMER!
Los Angeles, CA. (12/15/10) -- All dead things must come to an end. Nobody knows that better than the officers of the Post Mortem Animation Control (P.M.A.C.), stars of one of the most fanatically hailed independent comic book mini-series of the century, When Zombies Attack!! As the tension mounts and all manner of supernatural creatures rally against Officer Frank Hadely, his mind-bending partner Chet Thomas and the other officers of the P.M.A.C., the question arises: is there nothing the living can do to stop the undead, once and for all? The answer may be found in the exciting continuation of the saga by creators Matt Rose and Chad Waters (Predator, Batman Returns, Hellboy) along with their creative team: Joe Suitor (Monoluminant, Freakshow) and returning cover artist Mike Huddleston (The Coffin, Deep Sleeper, Man-Bat). Shipping for issue number four of When Zombies Attack!! will be Summer 2011.
Continuing the trend begun in the first three issues, Red Maverick publisher, Joe Venegas, promises even more story art filling every page of the long-awaited issue number four. "This was the most challenging issue yet," he says. "Because of the expanded script that called for more pages and led to my decision to break it into two 'last' issues, so that the story would play out as close to Chad and Matt's epic vision as possible. The world of WZA, created by Chad and Matt, continues the tradition of bringing to life characters drawn from many years of experience and research. Each issue gradually reveals more of the world that the P.M.A.C. inhabits."
Creator and co-scripter Chad Waters believes that the decision to expand the final issue into two action-packed issues was a sound one. "Although we could have squeezed the story and art into one issue, we decided to add an extra issue to let everything breathe," he says. "This gave us a chance to include an epilogue that introduces another interesting twist to the series that will, hopefully, leave the reader satisfied, yet eager for more. In this issue, the mystery begins to spawn bizarre answers and grim solutions. It was fun to figure out how our characters would react and behave in this absurd environment and we hope the reader enjoys their decisions."
The original live-action production, P.M.A.C.: When Zombies Attack!! !! was created as the first in a proposed series of first-class and very lively supernatural occurrences under the direction of movie veterans Matt Rose and Chad Waters (www.grimmgrottogoods.com). The production follows a paranormal clean-up crew--the bureau of Post Mortem Animation Control (P.M.A.C.), headed by the amiable, yet lethal, Officer Frank Hadely (Frank Rydberg)--as they chase down and dispose of the corporally-challenged. Running 25 minutes, P.M.A.C.: When Zombies Attack!! has appeared on MTV UK, Showtime Next as part of the multi-content series Piratenet, and can currently be viewed at SPIKE.com. The follow-up short, Waker Safety can now be seen at www.whenzombiesattack.com
