With the popularity of Call of Duty, zombies, and Call of Duty Zombies which combined the two – it just makes sense to make a comic book. That’s exactly what Activision and Treyarch have done and will unveil it at Comic-Con 2016. Comic-Con takes place in San Diego, CA from July 21 – July 24, 2016 and is considered one of the pinnacles in the form of comic and game conventions. The announcement will be held live on Thursday, July 21 at 5PM PDT in Room 23ABC at the Dark Horse Level Up panel. On July 21 at 12PM PT, Treyarch’s Jason Blundell and Writer Craig Houston will be at the Dark Horse Comic booth (#2615) for a special signing.
The panel will reveal the first of six parts of the comic. The first issue is set for release on October 19, 2016.
The Call of Duty Zombies Comic-Book is written by Justin Jordan (Green Lantern: New Guardians), and illustrated by Jonathan Wayshak (Devolution), Call of Duty Zombies features a story by Treyarch’s Zombies Director, Jason Blundell and the studio’s Lead Writer, Craig Houston.
The official description for the series is listed as:
On his quest to secure an ancient artifact known as The Kronorium, Doctor Edward Richtofen enlists the help of The Tranzit Crew, a rag tag group of survivors last seen in the Black Ops II Zombies installment Buried. On a deeply unstable and fractured future Earth, Stuhlinger, Misty, Russman, and Marlton battle for survival against the undead horde, as they slowly uncover the truth behind Richtofen’s mysterious reappearance. The Call of Duty: Zombies miniseries follows these characters’ perilous journey of discovery, filling in crucial pieces of the larger Zombies Story.
