Here is what series co-creator Chris Ryall had to say.

ZvR returns with its first-ever ongoing series, and this time, Ashley Wood and I invited some others to play along, too. Anthony Diecidue joins me on the 6-part “Inherit the Earth,” Steve Niles and Val Mayerik introduce “The Orphan,” and Ash Wood and I offer up chapter one of “Tales of ZvR,” too. We’d also love to have you join us for this series, which’ll feature new robots, familiar characters, mer-men, the usual over-the-top zombie carnage, and much more… - Chris Ryall, ZvR Writer/Co-Creator

Fright Rags Announces A Fantastic Limited Edition Frank Frazetta Collection!

Growing up in the 70’s and 80’s I can distinctly remember going record shopping and always checking out the bin for Molly Hatchet to see their amazing album covers.  (“The Death Dealer” and “Dark Kingdom” are my all-time favorites.) At the time, I was unaware but the art was done by the legendary fantasy artist, Frank Frazetta.

Mondo Announces “The Iron Giant” Deluxe Figure Pre-Sale Info & Leaves Fans Saying, “Just Take My Money!”

Back in 1999, director Brad Bird gave us a timeless classic with the animated sci-fi, comedy, “Iron Giant.”  The film stars the voice talents of Jennifer Aniston, Harry Connick, Jr., Eli Marienthal, Christopher McDonald, John Mahoney and Vin Diesel as the lovable Iron Giant.  (Is it just us or have two of Diesel’s best roles been voice work?)

As an added bonus, or to make the frenzy even greater, there will be a special limited edition that comes with the “Hand Under Foot” accessory which is modeled after the Iron Giant’s detached hand that runs amok in the barn.

Mondo shared the fact that they were recently able to show this amazing figure to Brad Bird at Skywalker Ranch.  Judging by the photos, I’d say he wants one like the rest of us.
