It’s no secret that it’s been a while between drinks for the man they call Dave. Two years ago we launched Dave Zombie Hunter with the intent to follow up with the second half as soon as we could.
Since then not much has progressed and It’s been most frustrating to be unable to bring you any further adventures. The resolution to the problem has reared it’s head however in the form of one Rob O’Connor, yes that’s his work above and I’m sure you’ll agree it’s the SHIT. I mean look at that?!
I can’t wait to get the end of this story, featuring Rob’s amazing artwork, in front of you all. We’re tentatively aiming for an October launch, but nothing is set in concrete yet… although the artwork is flowing in already, so who knows?
Plenty more to come and thank you so much to anyone who asked when Dave would reappear over the last couple of years. Your patience will be rewarded.
Dave: Zombie Hunter #1 is currently being updated and tweaked for digital release. This includes remastered lettering throughout the entire first part, as well as small panel tweaks and dialogue updates.
The digital edition will also include a remastered version of the short prequel story Operation: Gehanna (which is also illustrated by Tim Ide) as well as the variant covers by Joel VDK and writer Stewart Cook from #1 AND a gallery showcasing various takes on Dave and his friends by a wide variety of amazing Australian artists.
How much will this cost you? NOTHING! That’s right, you can download it to read on your iPad or other e-reader for FREE. All we ask is that you share your love of Dave as much as possible by encouraging everyone you’ve ever met to have a read and to join this page. That’s all!
I would also like to apologise to those of you who keep asking when #2 is coming out. The completion of Dave: Zombie Hunter IS happening, just not at the pace I’d hoped. But rest assured Tim is making headway!
There is also a sequel in the works, known simply at this stage as Dave II. I’ll be working with the amazing Ryan Vella (see below) for this story and I’m really excited to see his take on the character.
As always I really appreciate your support, encouragement and nagging (Tim especially loves the nagging) and I hope you look forward to the release of Dave into the digital world as much as I do!
