DC Comics has released a trailer for the upcoming DC Horror Presents: Sgt. Rock vs. The Army of the Dead written by Bruce Campbell with art by Eduardo Risso. The trailer not only gives glimpses of the comic yet to be seen but features a brief interview with Campbell talking about the project.
The six-issue series starts and goes on sale on September 27th.
So what’s DC Horror Presents: Sgt. Rock vs. The Army of the Dead about?
The story begins in Berlin, 1944. The Nazis are flanked on all fronts by the combined Allied forces, and defeat seems inevitable. In a last-ditch effort to turn the tide of the war, Hitler and his team of evil scientists create a serum that resurrects their dead soldiers, creating an army of the dead even stronger than they were in life.
Sgt. Rock, hero of the European Theatre, and his Easy Company find themselves dispatched into enemy territory to face off against the strangest, most horrific enemies they’ve encountered yet: Nazi Zombies.
Watch the trailer below.
The first issue will have a Duffel Bag Gore variant cover drawn by Frank Quitely, a cover by Walking Dead artist Charlie Adlard, horror expert artist Francesco Francavilla, and another by Chris Mooneyham, Pia Guerra (Y: The Last Man), and the main cover by Gary Frank.
