The War Begins as "Dead @17" Becomes An Ongoing

Official Press Release

June 14, 2006 – The Dead are rising, Evil is spreading, and the citizens of Darlington Hills are about to face their greatest trial yet, which means… It's time to sit back and enjoy the ride.

Viper Comics has announced they will release the Dead@17 ongoing series beginning with issue one this August. Written and drawn by original creator Josh Howard, the series will introduce an entire new cast of characters, though the action will continue to take place within the Dead@17 universe, and more specifically, Darlington Hills, the home of the original axe wielding heroine Nara Kilday.

Who are the Undying and what do they want? What secrets lie buried beneath the abandoned estate of Abraham Pitch? And what part will young and reckless Asia Black play in the coming conflicts between good and evil? These are just a few of the questions that will be answered when the series kicks off this summer.

Also, for those of you who missed the Dead@17 preview in Free Comic Book Day's VIPER COMICS PRESENTS the 10 page story is now available IN FULL COLOR on the brand new Dead@17 media website: www.thewarbegins.com

"The original Dead@17 struck a chord with readers and surprised everyone in the industry by sort of coming out of nowhere," states Viper Comics president Jessie Garza. "The question of a Dead ongoing has been one posed by fans for some time now, and while it was always in the back of our minds, we wanted to make sure the timing was right. Well, that time is now and we couldn't be more excited to be releasing the series. Fans of the original will not be disappointed, and those unfamiliar with this universe Josh created will find it the perfect jumping on point."
