ZNationPhotoDAs fans gears up for season three of the SyFy series Z Nation, Dynamite Entertainment announces an all-new canonical comic series, entitled Z Nation: Black Summer, written by Fred Van Lente and series co-creator Craig Engler.

Set one year prior to the events depicted in the television series, the Black Summer storyline will reveal previously untold tales from the post-apocalyptic wasteland, events that shaped the characters. The story is set in Year Two of the Zpocalypse, when a drought sweeps across the U.S. just as the last of the canned food runs out. The few survivors that remain become increasingly desperate, turning against one another in a brutal struggle for a potential new food source that could spell the difference between life and death.

Z Nation debuted on SyFy on September 12, 2014. Two seasons (encompassing 28 episodes) have aired, with the series renewed for a third season. Produced by The Asylum, the film company behind the horror films Sharknado and Mega Shark vs. Giant OctopusZ Nation is a horror/comedy/drama that follows a group of ordinary citizens on a cross-country trek, as they escort the world's only known survivor of a zombie bite.

The Z Nation comic book series will launch in early 2017.
