Steve Niles [30 Days of Night] and Chee [Wake the Dead] are teaming up for a three issue comic adaptation of the original “Dawn of the Dead” to be released in April.
Niles says the only liberties that he’s taking will be where the film makers were hampered by budget constraints.
Niles said that when he was asked about doing the adaptation, there was no trepidation. “I’m so excited that I’ve been asked to do this. This was such an important movie in my life.”
If you’re a fan of Niles‘ comics and novels, then you know that’s true… and will serve to make the adaptation even better. You can read the complete interview here… and remember to watch for the the “Dawn of the Dead” mini-series to start in April.
