Zombie tales are all the rage at the moment, as we all know. What makes a story stand out is how unique a perspective it shows in the classic genre. Tag does just that, having the zombie infection pass from a host by touch and going through the zombification process first hand with a character. If you were cursed to watch yourself die and become a zombie would you accept your fate or curse another? Tag centers on that moral dilemma. The three issue miniseries is now collected in a deluxe edition.
From Boom!’s press release:
WHY WE (BOOM!) LOVE IT: With Tag, comics legend Keith Giffen took the zombie story to the most personal, intimate place ever. Now we present the story again, collected in a full-size edition for the first time ever!
WHY YOU’LL LOVE IT: Giffen, Kody Chamberlain (Sweets), and Chee (G.I. Joe: Cobra) give you an intense, psychological horror story. You’ve read zombie stories but never one like this! All under a new cover by Chamberlain!
WHAT IT’S ABOUT: When an everyday man is “tagged” by a random stranger, he returns home and makes a horrifying discovery—his body is decomposing before his eyes, his flesh is rotting, he’s not dying…he’s dead. Now, he must make the morally challenging decision to either endure the ancient curse, or pass the plague to another.
Author: Keith Giffen
Artists: Kody Chamberlain, Chee
We wanted to add all the publication data that we usually follow a preview with but none seems to be available. So we’ll call the release date of September 24 tentative and you should call your local comic shop to see if they’ve got it coming in!
