Official Press Release
“The Minions of Ka” hits the screen with a teaser/trailer announcing the highly anticipated multi-media graphic novel project.
“The Minions of Ka” is a new graphic novel from creators Dave Wilbur, Michael Furno and Michael Ahearn in conjunction with Silent Devil Productions and Arcana Studios. The 60 second promotional trailer is currently available for view on YouTube and AlphaZombie.com.
The trailer is voiced by Academy Award nominee Danny Aiello and features clips from the highly anticipated 128 page book, which will debut at Dragon*Con on August 29th, 2008 and hit store shelves shortly after that. The graphic novel is written by Michael Furno and Michael Ahearn with full color artwork from Chris Moreno and an eye-popping cover by the legendary Ken Kelly.
“This is a very exciting, innovative project,” said co-creator/writer Michael Furno, “I think people are going to be very surprised when they see the things we’re doing. It’s a fresh new look on zombies. We create a whole new world by challenging a lot of preconceived notions. I think people are going to be blown away.”
In addition to the trailer and the graphic novel, “The Minions of Ka” project will feature an original short story by legendary horror novelist Jack Ketchum available later this month. There will also be the release of an on-line game called “Project Outbreak: Track the Strain”, where players can create and build their very own zombie hoard.
