What the Hell is “When Zombies Attack!!” the comic book series?

The comic book series is based on a proto-type TV pilot, “P.M.A.C. (Post Mortem Animation Control): When Zombies Attack!!” created, produced, directed, and written by Chad Waters and Matt Rose. Joe Venegas pitched the idea of publishing a comic book to publicize the TV show and explore the possible storylines and characters.

Why does it take a year for a new issue to be released?

The production on each issue is approved at every stage by the creators/ writers Chad and Matt throughout the entire process including, cover art, pencils and inks, colors, and digital lettering. They also create original artwork for the supplemental pages and design the official PMAC merchandise. The timeline also accommodates other projects going on simultaneously. Also, the publisher wanted to develop the comic book into the closest possible translation of the TV show and this required longer periods of collaboration between the creators and commissioned comic book artists. This WZA!! TV show to comic book translation will only cover these first 5 issues.

Why is the first issue black & white and the other issues full color?

The first issue was Chad’s, Matt’s, and Joe’s first attempt at bringing the TV show to the comic book world. Joe explored the basic costs and logistics of self publishing at a 2004 San Diego Comic Con self publishing seminar. The first issue was only meant to be a standalone promotional item, but its popularity was the driving force behind adding more issues. Joe also wanted to explore going full color so that Chad and Matt could add greater detail to the characters and places in Burke County, USA.

Will there eventually be a trade?

Not in the foreseeable future since we will begin production on the TV show right after completing the comic mini-series story arc, which ends with issue #5. But if there is ever be a trade paperback, it would not be an exact reprint of the individual issues collected. Plans would be to bring a whole new presentation to the trade thereby adding value to the individual issue releases.

Facts:

1 - Each issue is printed in Southern California.

2 - Chad and Matt continue to work as makeup effects artists on major motion pictures, their own film projects, and further developing their TV show, When Zombies Attack"!!, along with developing merchandising for their personal projects.

3 - Only 5,000 first print copies are produced for each issue. Flawed copies are destroyed by the publisher, Joe.

4 - Before being picked up by a major distributor, Joe drove door to door selling the first issue to comic shops starting in San Diego and making his way north. By the time he reached shops in Pasadena, Diamond Comic Distributors agreed to pick up the title.
