The greatest city in the world lies blanketed in ice and snow. There are no
lights on Broadway, no taxis clogging the streets and the Empire State stands
like a frozen tombstone blanketing a dead metropolis in its shadow. These are
the Popsicle Fields...a labyrinth of New York streets littered with the frozen
undead. This is 1970, two years since the rise of the cannibalistic dead. This
is '68: LAST RITES, the climactic sixth volume in the epic, award-winning
military/horror comics series that brings all branching storylines to a close.
From the fortified Flatiron Building, where a band of survivors holds onto life
with a white-knuckled grip, to the battle-torn streets of Chinatown where the
stiffening dead rise from subways filled with starving rats, an island off the
Jersey coast where living horrors feast on human flesh...to the steaming jungles
of Vietnam, where a hero will fall only to spawn an army of masked avengers who
find retribution in his legend and a battle cry in his name. Collected here for
the first time, this volume includes all four issues of the series finale along
with the hard-hitting one shot: JUNGLE JIM: GUTS 'N GLORY, with tons of
extras including a cover gallery, script notes and behind the scenes extras
available nowhere else!
From writer MARK KIDWELL and artists JEFF ZORNOW
and JAY FOTOS, '68: LAST RITES closes the curtain on the saga of the rise
of the living dead in the age of Aquarius and unleashes a plague of the hungry
dead on a generation of the lost!
