Comic Bastards posted an interview with James Maddox and Jen Hickman to follow up their review of DEAD#3. Check it out as Jen and I discuss how The Dead came to be the weird tale of monsters and rooms that it is today!
Comic Bastards have posted their fantastic 5/5 review of DEAD#3!
“Why someone like Image, IDW or Dark Horse hasn’t picked this series up is beyond me. Its leaps and bounds better than 90% of the comics published monthly.” – Dustin Cabeal
THE DEAD – Issue #2 begins its weekly release starting June 17!
Now that THE DEAD Kickstarter, Tricon and a number of other activities have wrapped up, and now that the third issue has been released to ComiXology, James and Jen will be posting a page per week from Issue #2.
So begins the new “season” of THE DEAD, and of course if you haven’t checked out Issue #2, you absolutely have the option to get the entire issue (and more) now on ComiXology.
THE DEAD – Issue #3 is available on ComiXology!

Donezo! If someone had said we’d end up at a 230% funded level of $9200 when we talked about Kickstarting this series, we would have awkwardly squirmed in our chairs and thought you were blowing smoke to make us feel better. Now, we’re a bit speechless at what an incredible month this has been. The amount of support, reviews and other attention THE DEAD has received has been a dream come true.
For the immediate future, we’re already going through the motions of getting mini-prints, bookmarks, t-shirts, pins and other reward materials prepared. Beyond that, the third issue of THE DEAD is about to be sent off to ComiXology, and we’ll keep everyone updated with our progress as we complete the final three issues and begin receiving items that fulfill our rewards.
For those of you who backed, we’re so happy you joined us on this project. Your involvement and support have given us the opportunity to create this series with the goals and content that we originally wanted to present. We can’t say thank you enough (though I’m sure we’ll continue to try)!
For those who are coming in after the Kickstarter deadline, we’ll be equally as happy to have you on board as we do more with DEAD!
Thanks again to everyone who backed or spread the word about this campaign. You all are the best!
More to come!
—James & Jen
We’re coming up on our last few days of THE DEAD’s Kickstarter campaign, and we’re blown away by the amount of support that has been aimed at our series. With a little luck and some new backers, we’re on track to hit our $8k stretch goal! So excited!
Jen Hickman and James Maddox are featured on acclaimed writer Nicholas Kaufmann’s “The Scariest Part”. Big thanks to Nicholas for letting us consider fear and horror in THE DEAD!
