Z Nation: Black Summer is set in Year Two of the Zpocalypse, when a drought sweeps across the U.S. just as the last of the canned food runs out. The few survivors that remain become increasingly desperate, turning against one another in a brutal struggle for a potential new food source that could spell the difference between life and death.
"It's a fast-paced adventure that features Z Nation's signature mixture of horror, humor, and heart, and will be a great entry point for new readers while delighting existing fans of the show," says Z Nation co-creator, Craig Engler.
"SyFy's Z Nation series has had fans in the Dynamite office since the very first episode, back in 2014. It has a great premise that distinguishes itself from most zombie shows and movies. We are all really excited about this book and how it expands on the world of the series, showing us things that have only been hinted at before," says Dynamite CEO and Publisher, Nick Barrucci. "When we had the opportunity to work on a canon comic series with show co-creator Craig Engler, as well as with Fred Van Lente, we jumped at the chance."
Dynamite Entertainment's Z Nation comic book series will launch in early 2017. Fans and retailers are encouraged to follow Dynamite Entertainment's social media channels for the latest updates regarding creative personnel, release dates, and other details.
