The Final Plague #3 Available for Preorder


In most zombie tales, the threat is from the ravenous hordes of brain-eating walking dead; but what if the threat came from reanimated members of the animal kingdom, not from other people? This is the question Action Lab: Danger Zone' The Final Plague asks, as a small rural family in Iowa, and people across the country, are attacked by increasingly feral and bloodthirsty animals and forced to fight for their lives. The third issue of the series is poised to hit stores in October, available for preorder now in Previews under Diamond Order Code AUG130917.

J.D. Arnold and Tony Guaraldi-Brown's work is the first and original animal zombie comic, combining the raw terror and suspense of The Walking Dead with classic horror films featuring killer animals like Rabid or Cujo, by combining the two in a new and original premise that predates its imitators. Beyond the blood and gore of most other zombie books the work concentrates more on psychological scares and chilling suspense, and readers who enjoy books and films like The Stand or The Road will find a lot to like here.

”In the first five issues, the reader will start to see the broad scope of this plague and how the animals destroy the order of the food chain as well as how humans deal with the fact that life as they know it will never be the same,” said Guaraldi-Brown.

THE FINAL PLAGUE #3: THE ORIGINAL EPIC ZOMBIE ANIMAL COMIC AVAILABLE FOR PREORDER FROM ACTION LAB: DANGER ZONE

In most zombie tales, the threat is from the ravenous hordes of brain-eating walking dead; but what if the threat came from reanimated members of the animal kingdom, not from other people? This is the question ACTION LAB: DANGER ZONE’S THE FINAL PLAGUE asks, as a small rural family in Iowa, and people across the country, are attacked by increasingly feral and bloodthirsty animals and forced to fight for their lives.


J.D. ARNOLD and TONY GUARALDI-BROWN’S THE FINAL PLAGUE, the first and original animal zombie comic, combines the raw terror and suspense of THE WALKING DEAD with classic horror films featuring killer animals like RABID or CUJO, by combining the two in a new and original premise that predates its imitators. Beyond the blood and gore of most other zombie books THE FINAL PLAGUE concentrates more on psychological scares and chilling suspense, and readers who enjoy books and films like THE STAND or THE ROAD will find a lot to like here.


THE FINAL PLAGUE kicks into high gear this October with issue number 3, as the infection affecting the animal kingdom spreads, and the humans are increasingly under threat not only from the undead fauna but from each other. In the words of artist TONY GUARALDI-BROWN, ”In the first five issues, the reader will start to see the broad scope of this plague and how the animals destroy the order of the food chain as well as how humans deal with the fact that life as they know it will never be the same.”



THE FINAL PLAGUE #3  by J.D.ARNOLD and TONY GUARALDI-BROWN is available NOW to pre-order from ACTION LAB DANGER ZONE in this month’s PREVIEWS with Diamond Order Code AUG130917.

The Final Plague has begun, as a mutated rabies virus spreads across the planet, infecting, killing, and reanimating animals, both great and small. Can mankind survive? And what will happen when the first humans are infected? Will they fall, only to rise again? Are these really humanity’s final hours?!?
