CONTAINMENT is back in print! My zombies-in-space graphic novel published by IDW is getting a second printing in hardcover and digital editions by SST Publications.Friday, July 25th, 2014
The eye-popping artwork is by Nick Stakal, and the book has an introduction by the legendary Wes Craven.
The story takes place on a manned NASA space ship millions of miles from Earth, when a terrifying malfunction occurs in the cryogenic hypersleep pods containing the hibernating astronauts, turning most of the crew into the violently brain-dead. A handful of outnumbered astronauts awaken intact from their artificial slumber to find themselves pitted against murderous zombies running amok on the ship.
In his intro, Wes calls CONTAINMENT, “Some of the best visual storytelling in years. Eric Red takes no prisoners. Read it with the lights on. Read it with a friend so you are not alone afterwards. Won’t matter. You still won’t be able to sleep afterwards. What better way to spend your remaining moments?”
The graphic novel has been out of print and a high-priced collectable for years, and I’m thrilled it will once again be widely available. This a zombie saga unlike any you have read before, and is one of my all-time favorite projects. Big thanks to SST publisher Paul Fry!
More to come…
