FVZA is based on the popular website,, created by Richard S. Dargan, FVZA chronicles a world where a deadly disease, representing a new threat of global terrorism, transforms innocent victims into Zombies and a long dormant government task force is called into action: The Federal Vampire and Zombie Agency. Throughout history, from the Civil War to World War II, the FVZA protected humanity from the blood-sucking and flesh-eating hordes — until a cure was discovered that sent the undead to their graves. When a new incurable strain of the virus ravages a small town in America, Agent Landra Pecos must call upon her lethal skills to eradicate the threat. But as Landra delves deeper into her investigation of the undead menace, she uncovers shocking secrets that will forever change her family, her world and her life.

  1. That looks pretty damn cool-those Langley covers are GORGEOUS!

    Yeah, it looks very cool. I’ll have to look into this website when I get a chance. A comic based on a website sounds like a crazy ass idea. Langley’s art works really well on this sort of stuff, I’ve been loving his run on ABC warriors. At first I was like “What the hell, this doesn’t look right”, then I settled into it and absolutely adore it, it works great for that futuristic feel. Though his use of real faces does creep me out a little. It looks good, but a little creepy
