Following the hectic weekend known to us New York geeks as NYCC, I had an opportunity to catch up with Dana Shukartsi, inker for the upcoming release Alpha Girl from Image Comics.
The story is one that is sure to grab readers right off the bat. The year is 1984 and centers around seventeen-year-old Judith. She's your "typical teenager": chain smoker, cuts class, sells her tampons to perverts, and she just might be the last sane woman left on the planet. Life gets turned upside down for Judith when a third-rate cosmetics company creates a pheromone that turns women into crazed man-eaters. Soon, the world dives into chaos. Judith must break her little brother out of juvie, all the while dodging rabid women and the men who hunt them. Already a proven survivor, she picks up some interesting strays along the way and kicks some serious zombie ass! Judith is Alpha Girl!
Shukartsi had this to say about Alpha Girl:
Alpha Girl is a book that is fun to work on because it really appeals to me as a reader. I love the new twist on zombies and I think any girl can relate to makeup horror stories, we all have them, even if the end result isn't a sudden compulsion to eat men. Guys of course will relate to being eaten by women, that actually happens.
Alpha Girl is brought to you by co-creators Jean-Paul Bonjour and Jeff Roenning (also the writer), artist Robert Love, inker Dana Shukartsi, colorist Diego Simone, and editor Branwyn Bigglestone.
For additional information about Alpha Girl, you can find out more at the social networking site of your choice: Twitter and Facebook. Also, the official site for all things Alpha Girl is www.AlphaGirlTheComic.com.
I'd like to wish the entire creative team of Alpha Girl the best of luck! Alpha Girl will hit a comic book store near you in February 2012.
