"In the pantheon of heroes, none are more lovable and loyal than everyone's beloved good ol’ dog, Sparky. Surviving in the wintery apocalypse of the undead, this former TV star turned zombie killing machine just wants to make friends and be a good boy. As his fellow survivors scavenge for supplies in the frigid wasteland, will Sparky be able to protect his companions from threats both undead and not yet undead?"
The comic is set to be available both in store and on ComiXology from Wednesday, August 2, 2017.
