28 Days Later #1, The End Of The World Begins 8/26/09

The wait for the end of the world will soon be over.


Who liked the movie 28 Days Later?  Boom! Studios is putting out a comic adaption with the first arc firmly based in 28 Days Later continuity focusing on the character, Selena.  The comic will bridge the gap between 28 Days Later and 28 Weeks Later.  The comic will focus on the question, what happened to Selena after 28 Days Later?
The movie franchise has grossed over $145 million globally and was named as having one of "The 100 Scariest Movie Moments" by the cable channel Bravo.  28 Days Later #1 is the first issue in an ongoing series written by Michael Alan Nelson (Fall of Cthulhu, Hexed) and is drawn by newcomer Declan Shalvey.  The first issue will have three different covers (by Tim Bradstreet, Sean Phillips and Brett Weldele in a 50/25/25 split) along with a fourth 'incentive' cover by DNA Films (shipping 1 for every 25).
