A press release from Emily McGuiness of Boom! Studios:
BOOM! Studios is proud to announce BOOM! regular writer Shane Houghton (Peanuts, Reed Gunther) has joined Sam Humphries (Higher Earth, Uncanny X-Force) as co-writer on the original BOOM! Studios series, Fanboys vs. Zombies.The 9th issue of the hit series, in stores next Wednesday, will be Houghton’s first issue as co-writer.
Last month, the new-and-improved Wrecking Crew wrecked shop, eliminating the zombie threat in San Diego and salvaging what they could of the mecca of geek culture. But what happens when they’re faced with the Ghosts of Comic-Cons Past?
“When Sam invited me to help him carry the FvZ writing torch to me, I promised him I would use it to burn as many undead cos-players as possible,” commented Houghton. “I’m thrilled to continue the action, humor, and insanity Sam established and take the Wrecking Crew to a whole new level of awesomeness!,” says Houghton.
Fanboys vs. Zombies #9 ships with cover by series artist Jerry Gaylord and a variant cover by Dominike “Domo” Stanton with a retail price of $3.99. The issue will be in stores on Wednesday, December 12th. To find a comic shop near you go to comicshoplocator.com or dial 1-888-COMIC-BOOK.
