Allow us to introduce ourselves- we’re Boom Boom, Kamikaze and Suzi Sioux- better known to our superiors as operation:
G.R.A.V.E. (Genetically Refined And Virally Enhanced) GRRRLS
A hot new trio of covert government “super” ops whose first official gig consists of helping out the “BIOLOGICALLY CHALLENGED”…
You know, those shambling, bonebag losers that insist on munching lunch with our vitals. Our mission is to put the dead back to bed- PERMANENTLY- without becoming “MEALS IN HEELS” while we’re doing it.
And not only do we have the deadly departed to deal with, but also certain political power brokers who have other ideas for our hungry, resurrected pals.
And for us…
Since we have to wrap this mission up in 3 issues, you know it’s going to be one high speed rollercoaster ride you don’t want to miss.
Think Charlie’s Angels gets devoured by Dawn of the Dead which is then Shaw-scoped by Kill Bill with a touch of viral infection from The Matrix…
Women, Weapons, Martial Arts & Monsters…
who could ask for anything more?!?
Girls, guns or zombies? Well, duh.
G.R.A.V.E. Grrrls: Destroyers of the Dead is a cool, action-packed comic and all but doesn’t really offer anything new to the zombie comic genre. However, I still love the comic and I really love “Zombie 88” Edition [issue #2] – an obvious homage to the Crazy 88 sequence from Quentin Tarantino‘s Kill Bill Vol. 1 (2003).
Scott Licina and Ken W. Wolak planned a sequel titled G.R.A.V.E. Grrrls: Rise of the Scarlet Moon, in which the G.R.A.V.E. Grrrls were pitted against an ancient clan of Scottish werewolves, but it was never published.
