Jim Lee, Dan DiDio, What in the World Happened to Peter Milligan's Zombistas!?

Back in the late noughties, Peter Milligan wrote a comic book for WildStorm called Zombistas!, described as a zombie-story set in Mexico and California about an American company who are trying to create the perfect non-unionized labour force, talking about it saying "there's some politics in there, using the walking dead guys as a way of exploring some immigration and race issues."

Ten years later, it has yet to be published. When asked about it at the weekend by an old acquaintance, he replied,

With that description, it does sound more relevant than it may have been for some time. So, Dan DiDio, Jim Lee, you paid for it. With Peter Milligan's star in the ascendancy again, maybe it's worth pulling out of the bottom drawer for a refresh? Or maybe let Milligan have the rights back to he can publish it from Image, Boom, IDW, Ahoy or Berger Books?
