As you may or may not know, Tor have just finished doing a zombie week and one of the best things that came out of it (and there was lots of good stuff) was the comic, Dear Melissa.

This short 9 page comic re-humanises zombies (but if you see them, still shoot them) and is well worth a look.

Check it out here and make sure and check out what else Tor put up last week.

Jim Pike was the world’s biggest Star Trek fan—until two tours of duty in Afghanistan destroyed his faith in the human race. Now he sleepwalks through life as the assistant manager of a small hotel in downtown Houston. But when hundreds of Trekkies arrive in his lobby for a science fiction convention, Jim finds himself surrounded by costumed Klingons, Vulcans, and Ferengi—plus a strange virus that transforms its carriers into savage, flesh-eating zombies!

So, after a bit of a sabbatical, ZC is back and what better way to kick off than a competition to win Capcom’s latest zombie game, Dead Rising 2.

Will you survive the zombie outbreak in Fortune City? Find out by entering the Dead Rising 2 Giveaway! Be sure to check out to create your own weapons and submit them for a chance to get your creation featured in the next Dead Rising game!

Check out some of the brand new DR2 features:

  • Thousands of Zombies On Screen: The undead are everywhere creating a dynamic and challenging zombie-killing experience for the player as weapons will be created to kill massive amounts of zombies at one time!
  • 2-Player Co-Op: Co-op play is introduced to the Dead Rising universe for the first time as players can invite their friends to partner up with them at any time to take on the zombie massacre- tag-team style! Play with a friend and have even more fun as you lure zombies in using strategic items like a toy helicopter or a firecracker. Once the zombies have gathered, your friend can rain bullets from above or shoot at a strategically-placed gas tank to create a deadly explosion that will take out masses of the enemy. Killing zombies with a friend is always more fun!
  • Terror is Reality: Allows 4 players to compete in a gladiator type show that pits zombies against a group of players in the ultimate Vs. multiplayer blood bath
  • Combo Weapons: Players can combine two everyday items using duct tape to create the ultimate zombie killing creations such as the Portamower and Paddlesaw. Unlocking combo cards along the way will give players the advantage as the helpful cards will show you what items are best for combining. The more zombies you destroy using your creative combo’s, the more Prestige Points you can earn which levels up Chuck along the way.

To enter simply tell us in the comments what items you would tape together to make the ultimate combo weapon (or what your favourite one in the game is).

Competition is open to US and Canadian residents only (though check back for an EU giveaway later) and ends September 30th.

Sequel to the very enjoyable Zombie Apocalypse, this indie sequel is going for a bigger and better feel to it all.

A total departure from the original ZA story but set in the same universe, ZA:R will merge the zombie and post-apocalyptic genres into one action-packed horror adventure. Picture “Mad Max” with zombies.

Production for the film begins this September, wrapping at the end of the month. If you’d like to get involved with the production on the crew, as an investor, or as a zombie, please email the director at or head on over to the official site.
