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.
