Fear the Walking Bigheads of O-Town in May 2019
LOS ANGELES, CA (April 23, 2019) – BOOM! Studios today revealed a first look at ROCKO’S MODERN AFTERLIFE #2, available in stores May 2019. In this exciting next chapter of the five issue comic book series from writer Anthony Burch (Borderlands 2) and artist Mattia Di Meo (Adventure Time/Regular Show), everyone’s favorite wallaby, Rocko, is trying to survive the zombie outbreak that has taken over his home of O-Town!
Don’t open the doors! There are zombies outside! Rocko’s been holed up in his home, trying to ride out the frightening wave of mutated O-Town citizens who have overrun the city with their madness and mayhem. But his best friend, Heffer, is in trouble, and there’s only one wallaby left in town who can save the day. Rocko and Spunky will have to gear up and head out into the perilous streets of an infested O-town but will they survive the journey or will they get turned into mindless zombies? And what does the vast and all-powerful Conglom-O have to do with this horrifying crisis?
“While Rocko isn’t the bravest wallaby around, even the most anxious modern marsupial will step up when his friends’ lives are on the line. Or so we hope.” said Matthew Levine, Editor. “Anthony and Mattia take on the modern craze for zombie apocalypses by dropping Rocko straight into the middle of a homegrown outbreak and bringing new readers and longtime fans along for the ride!”
