The classic zombies-in-space graphic novel CONTAINMENT is coming back! And for the first time ever in hardcover and digital formats from SST Publications. It was originally published by IDW Publishing back in 2005 and now long out-of-print.
The story takes place on a manned NASA space ship millions of miles from Earth, when a terrifying malfunction occurs in the cryogenic hypersleep pods containing the hibernating astronauts, turning most of the crew into the violently brain-dead. A handful of outnumbered astronauts awaken intact from their artificial slumber to find themselves pitted against murderous zombies running amok on the ship. The incredible artwork is by Nick Stakal and the introduction is by the legendary Wes Craven.
In his intro, Wes Craven calls CONTAINMENT, “Blood, mayhem, sex, cat-and-mouse terror, and some of the best visual storytelling in years. Eric Red takes no prisoners. Read it with the lights on. Read it with a friend so you are not alone afterwards. Won’t matter. You still won’t be able to sleep afterwards. What better way to spend your remaining moments?”
CONTAINMENT is available from amazon.com at http://amzn.to/1rzGlT2 or directly from the publisher at http://bit.ly/1ClMdcB
“Antarctic Press is proud to announce for the fall of 2013, the publication of the new five-issue comic series WILD WORK, an epic vampire action horror western! And here’s a dazzling look at the 1st issue’s jaw-dropping cover!
In 1888, Professor Abraham Van Helsing pursues Count Dracula into the American West. Wooden stakes and spurs, silver bullets and six-guns, side by side. Bullets fly, hell on earth around every hitching post and enough blood spilled to turn the western desert into a crimson sea. It’s going to be one “Hell-sing” of a ride!
The series is created and written by film director and screenwriter Eric Red, whose films include the legendary modern cult classics THE HITCHER, NEAR DARK, BODY PARTS and 100 FEET and who previously created and wrote the comic series CONTAINMENT for IDW Publishing. The cinematic artwork is by Ben Dunn. the founder of Antarctic Press and a man who has worked for almost every publisher on the planet as well as creating a plethora of titles and characters for his own company. The covers are by John Gallagher, the acclaimed entertainment illustrator working across film, television, video games and comics on such projects as ONCE UPON A TIME, FALLING SKIES and EUREKA and films such as THE GREY and APOLLO 18.
So saddle-up, oil-up your six-shooter and sharpen your stakes…there’s WILD WORK to be done!”
