NYCC DETAILS BEGIN TO EMERGE!

September 22, 2011 – Los Angeles, CA – With sights set on New York Comic Con, Halloween (and possibly the MLB playoffs), Evil Ink Comics and BOOM! Studios proudly announced the debut of Claudio Sanchez’s KEY OF Z, infesting store shelves October 19th! The announcement comes coupled with brand new, never-before-seen Issue #1 cover art by FLOURESCENT BLACK’s Nathan Fox.

KEY OF Z, co-written by Sanchez and Chondra Echert, introduces Nick Ewing, a man left to survive in a post-zombie-apocalyptic New York City while seeking revenge on those responsible for the death of his family – the warring gangs residing in The Big Apple’s most illustrious athletic houses.

The much-anticipated KEY OF Z #1 features interior art from THE AMORY WARS’ Aaron Kuder, as well as a baseball-homage limited retailer incentive cover by THE WALKING DEAD’s Tony Moore and a stunning NYCC-exclusive cover by Declan Shalvey (28 DAYS LATER, THUNDERBOLTS).

Sanchez and Echert will be signing at their Evil Ink Comics booth (#1345) at New York Comic Con Thursday and Friday (October 13 and 14) and Sunday (October 16). Signing times and full signees will be announced soon!

Also be sure to attend the BATMAN: ARKHAM CITY panel at New York Comic Con where Claudio will be a guest speaker, happening Friday October 14th at 12:15pm in the IGN Theater (http://bit.ly/nhv4pp).
