Brought to life/afterlife by artist Toby Cypress (Omega Men), this horror adventure is geared up to be a hodgepodge of supernatural delight, with The Gravediggers Union vigilantly standing with shovel in hand. Here’s what the debut writer, and established artist, Wes Craig (Deadly Class) had to say about his creation …
”In THE GRAVEDIGGERS UNION, VOL. 1, the supernatural world has gone berserk, and it’s all tied to a powerful cult called the Black Temple. They want to unleash ancient dark gods on mankind and bring about the apocalypse. The only things that stands in their way are Cole, Haley, and Ortiz. They’re members of the Gravediggers Union, a brotherhood sworn to defend the living from the undead. At the center of the Black Temple’s plan is a street kid named Morgan. She’s the key to the coming apocalypse. Also, she’s Cole’s estranged daughter. To find her, the Gravediggers will have to contend with a witch who hates their guts, a former cult member who used to be the world’s biggest movie star, yuppie vampires, steroid-zombies, junk golems…and no overtime pay. “
