A Bleak Future Explored In Jason Shawn Alexander's The Empty Zone Vol. 1

Here comes another comic worth collecting from Image. Eisner-award nominated artist Jason Shawn Alexander (Abe Sapien: The Drowning, The Escapists) weaves the unsettling, dystopian saga of Corinne White that introduces readers to a bleak future, eighty years after a worldwide blackout in The Empty Zone Vol. 1: Conversations with the Dead.

Writer of Saga, Brian K. Vaughan commented on the book by saying:

"Jason Shawn Alexander has always been one of the most original artists in comics, but with Empty Zone, he shows he's one of our most unique writers, too. What a gorgeous book."

Corinne White is an ex-soldier turned black market spy, data courier, manic-depressive, alcoholic. Punishing herself for mistakes from her past, Corinne is brought out from her spiral when she's contacted by her dead friends who inform her of a plot to reanimate the bodies of the dead by a psychotic billionaire. The Empty Zone follows Corinne as she confronts these undead monsters and comes to terms with her past.

The Empty Zone, Vol. 1 collects issues #1-5 into trade paperback and will arrive in comic book stores on Wednesday, December 16th and bookstores on Tuesday, December 29th.
