It is true. Chicago is overrun with Zombies! The undead menace has penetrated Doc Zarvin’s Labs™ at the Hawthorne Race Track and it has fallen. Doc and the brave band of survivors have fled seeking a new refuge. The heroes of Casa Italia Cultural Center in Stone Park, IL through the brilliance and foresight of the mayor have duplicated Dr. Zarvin’s laboratories. Will Zarvin’s Xernonion technology help make a difference in the war between the struggling living and the hungry undead? Survivors, step up to the plate and join us for the next phase of Zombie Annihilation ™!

Mark DiSanto and I have moved the haunted house to Casa Itillia at the Stone Park Illinois. We decided to make a 12 page comic book that we plan to give away for free. Chris Wisnia, Michael Reidy, and Todd Broenstein is drawing the comic book in a Jack Kirby style. They are also trying to approach the zombies as to how Kirby may have drawn them!
Having 3 different artists in different states trying to draw in their interpretation will be fascinating.
Also the comic will be printed on 35# Ground wood. (news paper stock) and We are using a limited pallet similar to the golden age comics. We did a similar project (Our Village -A Brief History of Oak Park) We gave away 10000 copies to the public! THe remainders will be distributed nation wide.

Risks and challenges
Todd Borenstein, Michael Reidy, and Chris Wisinia are all professionals in the industry. Each of them are doing 4 pages, if one fall behind or suffers an accident there are two others who can pick up the slack.
Philo Barnhart and Robert E. Brown are very professional. I am not worried about them.
I can color and letter and I have a crew to color as well.
On the last ZA1 project I was dealing with packaging, shipping mailing all by myself. My business partner for the haunted house now is a roommate. He is a logical Retire Police Officer. He has helped my organize and this has allowed for a frightening efficiently. His girlfriend who is also brilliant, and a roommate is more logical then him! So fulfillment will be much faster 3 of us working together!
Printing is no problem.
That is about it. I am looking forward to you reading the next ZA!
