Posted by Grey Monday, December 12, 2011

The New Deadwardians, an eight-issue miniseries with an innovative take on the now run-of-the-mill genres of zombies and vampires is set to be released by Vertigo Comics come next March.

This Undead Monday, we take a look at Vertigo Comics's newly-announced eight-issue miniseries, The New Deadwardians.

Written by Dan Abnett (whose massive body of work includes Resurrection Man and Marvel's Annilation saga as well as its numerous follow-ups) with art by up-and-coming artist I.N.J. Culbard whose adaptation of H.P. Lovecraft’s At the Mountains of Madness won this year's British Fantasy Award, The New Deadwardians is set in an alternate post-Victorian England where the entire lower class have became zombies and the upper class, in an effort to escape the former, voluntarily becomes vampires. And just when you thought the storyline couldn't get any more intriguing, the plot will revolving around Chief Inspector George Suttle, a detective investigating murders in a world where nobody is alive in the truest sense of the word.

A synopsis of the series courtesy of DC Comics's blog, The Source:

Set in post-Victorian England, nearly everyone in the upper class has voluntarily become a vampire to escape the lower classes who are all zombies.

Thrust into this mayhem is Chief Inspector George Suttle, a lonely detective who’s got the slowest beat in London: investigating murders in a world where everyone is already dead!

But when the body of a young aristocrat washes up on the banks of the Thames, Suttle’s quest for the truth will take him from the darkest sewers to the gleaming halls of power, and reveal the rotten heart at the center of this strange world.
