Another vampire/zombie comic? Really, Vertigo? Trust us. This is different.

In post-Victorian England, nearly everyone of the upper classes has voluntarily become a vampire to escape the lower classes who are all zombies. Into this simmering cauldron is thrust Chief Inspector George Suttle, a lonely detective who’s got the slowest beat in London: investigating murders in a world where everyone is already dead!But when the body of a young aristocrat washes up on the banks of the Thames, Suttle’s quest for the truth will take him from the darkest sewers to the gleaming halls of power, and reveal the rotten heart at the center of this strange world.

THE NEW DEADWARDIANS is brought to vivid life by fan-favorite writer Dan Abnett (RESURRECTION MAN, LEGION LOST) with art by newcomer I.N.J. Culbard (At The Mountains of Madness).

  1. super excited for this one!

  2. Eager for this. Love Dan Abnett. Art looks good. The subject matter isn’t exactly my style, but I’ll give it a shot.

  3. The thing I liked least about the preview was the bobble-head art. The idea’s a good one, but I don’t know…..I’ll probably try the first issue.

  4. Period piece + Zombies = Take my money.

  5. Top Notch. Chip chip cheerio. I can’t love the art more and I love a good detective story. I think im in until the end.

  6. pow

  7. Not a fan of zombies or vampires but this is unique and interesting enough to have got my attention. Not potw but a solid 4/5.

  8. I thought the art was a bit too “basic” for my liking but the concept was really good, I’m hooked!.

  9. I enjoyed this a great deal. It’s a unique and amusing take on zombies and vampires. Great dialog. The art is clean and effective, reminiscent of Peter Gross. I’m on board.
