IDW Publishing is bringing the post-apocalyptic, zombie infested world of John Maberry's Rot & Ruin novels to comics in a new ongoing series debuting this September. This all-new series is set in a world fifteen years after the dead have risen and vastly outnumber the survivors of the zombie-apocalypse. In the aftermath, humanity has found a way to live a marginal existence by forming fenced-in towns where everyone has a job to do in order to survive. As in the award-winning novels, the comic series will center on Benny Imura and his friends as they make their way in a world where the zombies aren't always the greatest danger. "The Rot & Ruin isn't about how many zombies you can kill or how much gore you can sling around the page," said writer Mayberry, "These are stories about real kids making hard choices about their lives. It's about kids learning how to become powerful in a hard and dangerous world. It's about finding the value of human life and discovering what it means to be alive." The Rot & Ruin ongoing comic book series sees Benny, Nix, Lilah and Chong head east to find a jumbo jet. They will encounter countless new dangers on their journey that will force them to confront what they and others are willing to do in order to bring humanity back to its former glory. Maberry will write the new series, with art from Tony Vargas (Temple Run), colors from Oliver Lee Acre and cover from Alex Ronald (Vampire Vixens, Judge Dredd).
