Deadworld #1 SPOILERS AHEAD
In Deadworld #1 we meet a group of young zombie apocalypse survivors and the comic book series follows their trials and tribulations in the new world that they have to live in. We learn about the characters and about the zombies, which they sometimes refer to as geeks, as they interact. We also see two zombies planning to attack their camp after they go back to the city for reinforcements. At the end of the first issue, the group discovers that their situation is even more, precarious because their enemy is now much more dangerous than they thought.
