Happy President's day. As I sat down to write this I was just going to combine earlier posts from previous President's Days since I have written about both Abraham Lincoln in Science Fiction
and George Washington in Comics
But, before as double checked (actually centennially checked would be a better word) the Great Zombies in History Trade file we sent to the printer, I realized that the series and the book had no less than 3 US President's in it. So, in the vein that you should always be closing, I thought I would mention them.
In "Dead and Endless Wastes" Frederick Kim tells an amazing story about a young Teddy Roosevelt. The future President discovers something while he is ranching the Bad Lands of the Dakota Territory in 1884 that will change his life.
Dead and Endless Wastes (Writer & Letterer, Frederick Kim with Artist, Antonio Bifulco) was originally featured in issue 2 of the series and will be available in the trade paperback along with behind the scenes sketches.
My story, "the Zombie War of 1812", involves the real reason for the fire that nearly destroyed Washington, DC on August 14, 1814. As such, you can imagine that several past and future President's play a role. Since it involves zombies, I was not limited to those that were living at the time.
The Zombie War of 1812 (Writer, Joe Sergi with Artist, Marc Jacobs and Letterer, E.T. Dollman) was originally featured in issue 2 of the series and will be available in the trade paperback.
Now I've got to go and check that file one more time.
Happy President's Day, everyone!
