'68: Hallowed Ground Print Sells in Memory of Josh Medors


Josh Medors was a great comic artist who lost a hard-fought battle with spinal cancer in 2012. His influential work made an impact throughout, especially with Image Comics. To that end, the publisher is offering a limited collector's edition print in memory of his passing in an 11"x17", double-sided glossy reproduction of the 68': Hallowed Ground one-shot cover by Medors. Even better is a matching back cover by Nat Jones and Jay Fotos. The print is available for purchase here and costs $40.00.

Printed at full production size, this print is limited to only 100 copies, and comes hand-numbered and signed in pencil by ‘68 series founders Mark Kidwell, Nat Jones, and Jay Fotos. It ships in a protective rigid Mylar sleeve and will be available worldwide. To honor their friend and colleague, the ‘68 creators are donating all proceeds from the sale of the print to Medors' wife Charlotte and son Garth.

'68: Hallowed Ground goes on-sale 11/6 and features the story of two soldiers freshly back from Vietnam and forced into a showdown against hordes of zombies while holed up in a church. '68: Hallowed Ground was one of the last projects Medors worked on before passing away. He provided a cover, layouts and thumbnails for the book, which were used to create the final one-shot. The issue ships with a cover by Medors (Diamond Code SEP130505) as well as a special cover by Bernie Wrightson (Diamond Code SEP130506).
