Sherlock Holmes versus zombies in foggy old London Town? That's enough to make us excited for next month's new comic Victorian Undead alone, but add in a mysterious meteor and we officially can't wait. Click through for an exclusive preview.
Written by 2000AD veteran Ian Edginton with lovely art by Davide Fabbri, the six part series comes from DC Comics' Wildstorm imprint, who describe the first issue a little something like this:
"Once you eliminate the impossible, whatever remains, no matter how improbable, must be the truth." Those are the words of Mr. Sherlock Holmes, the world's first consulting detective, yet even he finds his skills tested to their limit as he and his erstwhile comrade Dr. John Watson are confronted with the most extraordinary case of their career – the dead are returning to life! Can a plague of Biblical proportions be far behind for Victorian London? And who – or what – is behind the resurrection of these ravenous revenants?
Here's a look at how the series opens:
