I just realized that it’s been almost exactly one year, give or take, since Kickstart Comics put out their first batch of graphic novels. Happy birthday, Kickstart! I kind of feel bad that I didn’t get them a present, especially since they sent me a copy of today’s new release, DEAD WALKER.
Written by comics newcomer Christian Forte with art by Shannon Eric Denton and Matt Jacobs (who are currently doing awesome work on Grunts), Dead Walker brings us Jon Walker. A brilliant scientist working on a cure for cancer, his research brings him some unwanted attention and a group of gunmen kill Walker and his family. Yes, by page 11, the main character is dead. But as you can probably guess from the title, the little matter of being dead doesn’t stop Walker from getting his revenge.
