Eagle One Media have released an official CD-Rom collecting the zombie-comic Deadworld.
The Deadworld CD-Rom collects the entire 46 issue original runs of the cult comic, plus four short stories, two spin-off mini-series and bonus extras. That's 1,700 pages scanned packed onto one $29.99 CD. Phew! UK fans of the undead saga will need to chuck on a $6 shipping charge.
Deadworld made its shuffling debut back in the late 80s, bubbling up from the brains of scriptor Stuart Kerr and artist Vincent Lock. Fans of zombiekind recognised a world torn apart from a supernatural plague however unlike most Romero-inspired comics the zombie masses are just foot-soldiers to a breed of intellegent, highly intelligent flesh-feasters, led by a harley-riding, snark-talking king of the undead.
In the current ongoing Zombie revival it was only a matter of time before the comic underwent a resurrection. A all-new monthly Deadworld title was launched in 2005 from Image and Shockertoys are to release a line of 6-7 inch action figures.

The big news of our launch week is the release of the trailer for Sony Picture's Ghost Rider. Due to hit cinemas in the UK 23rd March 2007, the film has been written by Mark Steven Johnson, who was behind Marvel's surprise hit Daredevil, and if the trailer if anything to go by, Johnson will be repeating his trick of keeping fans happy by including a number of iconic Ghost Rider comic moments.
Nic Cage plays the biker Johnny Blaze who he sells his soul to the devil Mephistopheles to save his dying father. Years later Mephistopheles returns to claim his half of the deal, transforming Blaze into the Ghost Rider in order to defeat Mephistopheles' wayward son, Blackheart.
Surprisingly, the trailer shows much of Ghost Rider in action, or is that to try and stem the tide of internet gossip that the film, which has been already delayed for a year, is floundering. But what do you think. Leave a comment and let us know.
While the movie may have been pushed back, Marvel's hype-machine definitely hasn't with a new ongoing comic coming our way in July. Here's the official blurb from Marvel…
GHOST RIDER #1
Written by DANIEL WAY
Art by MARK TEXEIRA & JAVIER SALTARES
Cover by MARK TEXEIRA
Variant Cover by MARC SILVESTRI
Once upon a time, Johnny Blaze made a deal with the Devil…and to no one’s surprise but his own, he got shafted. Now trapped in hell, with the Spirit of Vengeance bonded to his immortal soul and weighing him down, Johnny may have finally found a way out. But at what cost? From the depths of Hell to the glittering spires of Heaven, the Ghost Rider rides again in his first ongoing series in nearly a decade, blazing new trails and dispensing fiery vengeance in his wake. The demonic team of Daniel Way, Mark Texeira and Javier Saltares reunite to put ol’ Flamehead back in the saddle where he belongs. Ready or not, here he comes!
32 PGS./Rated T+ …$2.99
