 So why Edge of Extinction?

What's the difference between this and other zombie books out there?

Well, firstly it's set in real-time. It's in your face, reactionary. It's about how we would react in similar circumstances. My wife is at work, where are the kids? Are my parents OK? These questions are what will be driving us, not larger issues, like how did this happen?, Is there a cure?

Secondly, we've got some surprises. The zombies are not just extra's in this book, they are also characters. And the zombies are not to easy to predict either.

Thirdly, main characters. Our main roster of characters changes. So we can develop a wider range of characters for you, the reader to love or hate. This means that i can really focus on different types of character. Bedford has a large Italian, Polish and Asian community, expect them to be represented. We also have a disabled character and a young girl, whose perspective changes the comic from black and white to colour. 

Four. Setting. Real place locations, set in small town England. Real people. Real problems.

Five:- The creators. A truly amazing team of artistic talent is working on this book. Hugely experienced. 

 We really hope that you like what you see.
