GRITTIER AND MORE GRAPHIC THAN EVER BEFORE!

CULT COMIC BOOK ARTIST
JIM MAHFOOD SIGNS ON TO BRING
P.M.A.C.: WHEN ZOMBIES ATTACK!!
INTO A WHOLE NEW VISUAL MEDIUM

Los Angeles, CA. . -- First came the award-winning short P.M.A.C.: When Zombies Attack!! and its hysterical tongue-in-cheek follow-up, Waker Safety. Then came the collectable Waker Safety puppets from Sota Toys. In 2005, Grimm Grotto Goods founders Matt Rose and Chad Waters teamed up with internationally acclaimed comic book artist Jim Mahfood to bring the exploits of Officer Frank Hadely and his Post Mortem Animation Control to life in comic book form. When Zombies Attack!! the comic book debut issue was written by Rose and Waters, then passed on to Mahfood to draw, ink and letter. The first in a proposed four-part series, the WZA!! comic book was officially launch to coincide with the San Diego Comic Con, July 13, 2005.

Adapting the characters of a cult film into comic book form was nothing new for fan favorite Jim Mahfood. He began his career in comic books as the artist for Kevin Smith's acclaimed Clerks comic book adaptation, before going on to work for all of the major companies in the comic book industry, including Marvel, D.C. and Image. He has lent his skill to characters as diverse as Spiderman, The X-Men, Grendel and The Simpsons, as well as his own creations The Grrl Scouts, Zombie Boy and Stupid Comics.

"I'm excited and flattered that the WZA guys approached me to draw the comic book," Mahfood says. "Matt and Chad are two extremely talented guys and they've successfully married two of my favorite genres, horror and comedy, into one of the most clever and unique ideas of the year. This whole project, from the show to the comic to the other multi-media things they have planned are all going to kick serious ass."

"We're very fortunate to have an artist like Jim Mahfood to translate the physical world of When Zombies Attack!! into the comic realm," says co-creator Chad Waters. "He has a very unique understanding of style and humor that translates perfectly to the medium. We planned on a four-issue story, so hopefully people enjoy this first comic enough to want more."
