KaBOOM!; $3.99

Too much screen time was already making O-Town’s citizens mindless, but now something is turning them into mindless zombies. Not one to accept heroic responsibilities, Rocko decides to barricade himself and his pup Spunky in their home to avoid the terrifying hordes. But when Rocko’s best friend Heffer is at risk of being infected, the anxious wallaby will have to brave the undead to save his friends and his city.

Before they can help Heffer, Rocko and Spunky must brave the zombified landscape of O-Town to enlist the assistance of Filburt. Unfortunately the neurotic turtle has taken up quite a few odd survivalist habits that turn this quick stop into a longer visit. After finally recruiting Filburt in their rescue mission, Rocko and Spunky finish the trek to Heffer’s house. But have they made it in time to prevent their dear pal from turning into a zombie? Or will Dr. Hutchison’s revelation about what’s causing the outbreak change everything?  

Writer Anthony Burch (Borderlands 2) crafts a creepy, entertaining adventure with your favorite residents of O-Town. Meanwhile the dark and unnerving illustrations by Mattia Di Meo (Adventure Time/Regular Show) lifts the entire thriller clear off the page!
