Dead of Winter comic stars Sparky the Stunt Wonder Dog:

Oni Press and Plaid Hat Games has announced the Dead of Winter comic, set for release this August.

Featuring the talents of writer Kyle Starks (Rick and Morty, Rock Candy Mountain) and artist Gabo (The Life After, Elephantmen), featuring cover art illustrated by Brian Hurtt and Bill Crabtree (The Sixth Gun, The Damned)

We love that the 'hero' of the Dead of Winter comic appears to be Sparky the Stunt Dog (the wonder dog!), one of our favorite characters in the board game. Sparky helps his friends survive the wintery apocalypse. The comic is a mix of humor and The Walking Dead style horror, what's not to love?

Oni Press Senior Editor Charlie Chu gushes, “Plaid Hat's Dead of Winter is one of my all-time favorite board games, with its sandbox of fun and diverse characters. Just like in the game, fall in love with Sparky all over again as he becomes a zombie murdering machine while keeping precious morale high.”

Dead of Winter #1 release Wednesday, August 2, 2017, available at local comic book shops and ComiXology. For ordering information in comic book shops the date is Wednesday, May 31. The final order cutoff for comic shop retailers is Monday, July 10, 2017.
