Comic book industry veterans enlist to prevent a ZOMBIE DAWN!
March 6, 2012. Eagle One Media is proud to announce comic book industry veterans David A. Rodriguez (FINDING GOSSAMYR, STARKWEATHER) and Dheeraj Verma (NIGHTMARE ON ELM STREET, ESCAPE OF THE LIVING DEAD) will team up to create and craft a comic book tale based on Eagle One Mediaâ€™s upcoming Spanish language horror feature film release ZOMBIE DAWN (zombiedawnmovie.com).
The Rodriguez/Verma comic book ZOMBIE DAWN: Safehouse will feature a prequel story that ties-in to the events of the action-packed film and will be bilingual in English and Spanish. The comic will be marketed along side the theatrical release of the zombie horror feature. Cover art will be provided by Patrick McEvoy (MARVEL STYLE GUIDE, FALL OF CTHULHU) and Lee Moder (RED SONJA, HIGHLANDER)
ZOMBIE DAWN recently won awards at the Zixion Sars film festival in Chile for first time directors Cristian Toledo and Lucio A. Rojas, and art direction. The film has won praise for its presentation and kudos for the film makers in assembling such a feature film while working with only a micro budget.
Film Premise: 2006. A mysterious incident at a remote mining facility unleashes a zombie horde with an appetite for human flesh. It decimates large portions of the cities and countryside. The only course of action is to rapidly enclose the infected areas and seal them off from the rest of the remaining, living population. Now, 15 years later the tattered remains of the government and the mining corporation responsible where the initial event took place commit themselves to finding out what may have happened at the mining complex. The solution is to covertly send in a group of mercenaries and scientists into the quarantined zone to find answers.
