Starks, Gabo warm up for ‘Dead of Winter’ from Oni Press

Plaid Hat Games’ popular board game comes to comics.

In advance of this year’s C2E2 convention in Chicago, Oni Press announced that Kyle Starks and Gabo will team up for a new horror-comedy mini-series based on the board game Dead of Winter by Plaid Hat Games.

The story will feature Sparky, a former canine TV star turned undead killing machine, as he tries to help survivors out during the zombie apocalypse. I couldn’t tell if he’s a fixture of the games or not, but if so, boy do I want to play them now.

“Plaid Hat’s Dead of Winter is one of my all-time favorite board games, with its sandbox of fun and diverse characters,” said Oni Press Senior Editor Charlie Chu in a statement. “Just like in the game, fall in love with Sparky all over again as he becomes a zombie murdering machine while keeping precious morale high.”

Dead of Winter debuts in August. Check out covers and some artwork below.
