Viper Comics Announces Ongoing “Dead@17” Series

Official Press Release


The adventures of Nara Kilday have come to a close, but danger still falls on
the town of Darlington Hills. So cute girls with short skirts and axes beware!


“It’s been something I’ve been thinking about for awhile,” says series creator
Josh Howard, “I needed a break from the Dead world to recharge my batteries and
figure out where I wanted to take it. I’m just coming off of two other books
for other publishers, and it just felt like the right time to return.”


Things get kicked off with Free Comic Book Day this May as a new 10 page
DEAD@17 story appears in the VIPER COMICS PRESENTS anthology. “I knew I didn’t
want to just slap in the first 10 pages from issue 1 or write some kind of
meaningless introduction,” continues Howard. “I had the idea of a voice over,
of someone giving this almost poetic re-introduction to the DEAD@17 world. It’s
the closest thing you can get to a comic book trailer.”


The new series will debut this August and Howard promises to introduce the
world to a new cast of Darlington Hills residents. “New readers aren’t really
required to know anything about what’s come before. I’m doing my best to make
this accessible to everyone.”

VIPER COMICS PRESENTS is a free book available at comic shops everywhere on May
6th as part of the annual Free Comic Book Day event. In addition to the new
DEAD@17 story, the anthology will contain excerpts from upcoming Viper titles
EMILY EDISON, A BIT HAYWIRE, and A DUMMY’S GUIDE TO DANGER. “This is the
company’s first time participating in Free Comic Book Day,” says Assistant
Editor P.J. Kryfko. “We couldn’t be more excited. I think we have a great
anthology for people, and best of all… it’s free!”
