And in this case it means a female punk rock zombie fetishist has to grow up in a hurry when her hedonistic boyfriend is bitten by a real ghoul.
No more fun and games – it’s time for a horror tale that rips you out of the safe zone with a fast paced violent survival story. Tired of no shambling ghouls in your favorite undead comics? It is the next evolution in the undead and you can’t afford to miss out on this year’s biggest zombie chronicle!
