In an idea so brilliant I was nearly sick with glee, Bleeding Cool report that Kapow Con this weekend will see a new anthology comic launching called Overload with the opening strip by Gordon Rennie, Emma Beeby and Eoin Coveney being: a zombie critique of modern Coalition Britain.
The basic premise is the zombified PM’s of old are back to re-take 10 Downing street, and who better to lead the charge than the undead Iron Lady. That’s right; Thatcher’s back, and she want’s to tax your brains! Here’s the skinny:
She shut the coal mines, privatised every major public utility in the UK, introduced the poll tax, pre-empted the banking crisis and stole the milk from our childrens’ mouths – and now she’s back from the dead to re-take her rightful place as the leader of the country from the weak-minded ConDem coalition.
You can check out the preview below:
Comfort by Dave Cook and Gary Crutchely, Staring Into The Eye Of A Blackbird, You Can See The Things He Likes And The Things He Doesn’t by Martin Hayes and Graeme Howard, Omen by Geoffrey D. Wessel and Steve Penfold, ‘Open Source by Cy Dethan and Aaron Moran, and Otherworld Sailor by Matt Gibbs and James Reekie are all strips also contained, and I can’t wait to hear back on how it’s received this weekend. Sounds great!Tags: zombies
