When the zombie apocalypse happens, what everyone will be looking for is the pause that refreshes.
Over on Facebook, I saw this weekend that Gary Reed of Caliber Entertainment debuted a soft drink line inspired by the long running Deadworld zombie comics. You can also find this information on the Caliber website.
Featuring classic art by Vincent Locke and new art from artists Joshua Werner and Steven J Bejma, the Deadworld Sodas come in flavors like Orange Roamer, Royal Rotter, Morbid Mix and Geek Juice. There will be a total of twelve flavors available in the line. No, I haven't had a sample yet (the Detroit-area premier event was a bit too far from my Florida home), so I can't comment on the taste.
Deadworld Soda is made and bottled by the Dearborn Heights-based Caprice Brands LLC. The soft drinks will come in four- and 12-packs, and the 12-packs will have mini-comics included. Retailers who are interested should contact Intrastate Distributors Inc. for distribution.
