Double Take Trades Are More Than Just A Collected Edition

Not long ago Double Take took the unique step of launching 10 new comics simultaneously on the same day. All of the stories launched from the same place, the 1968 film Night of the Living Dead. These titles included: Rise, Slab, Medic, Soul, Honor, Dedication, Spring, Z-Men, Remote and Home. Now, five issues in, it's time to do a collected edition.

But Double Take is once again doing something different. The 10 creative teams took 45 days to re-draw, re-write and in some cases re-order the different series in an almost Director's Cut way. As a writer myself, I've never looked at a printed comic that I've written without seeing places I'd change it if I could. Double Take has given the creators that chance. The ability to look at the five issues and make them better.

Now they are releasing all 10 graphic novels simultaneously today. The books are going for $9.99 each or you can get them in two different "binge boxes"… the Living Dead Revival box includes: Rise, Slab, Medic, Soul and Honor while the Superheroes Rising box has Dedication, Spring, Z-Men, Remote and Home. The binge boxes go for $40 saving you almost $10 on the set.
