Horror fans and heavy metal music fans know the work of British artist ‘Mister-Sam’
Shearon, whose work for Ministry, Rob Zombie, American Head Charge, Iron Maiden and A Pale Horse Named Death sits in his studio alongside his work for IDW Publishing including such titles as 'The X-Files', '30 Days of Night', 'Mars Attacks' and 'KISS'. His visceral horror style attracted The Other Dead
creators Digger T Mesch (Agent 88) and Joshua Ortega (Gears of War), who chose Mister Sam for their Issue #5 variant cover of across-the-pond President Obama strangling the iconic Bald Eagle.
Said Mister-Sam, "It's been nothing short of a thrill-ride to be illustrating zombie animals for 'The Other Dead'. I've been drawing and painting zombie animals for more than a decade, so when Digger T Mesch asked me to contribute three covers to the debut of the world's first zombie-animal comic book series, I jumped at the chance!"The Other Dead
series is the most talked about horror comic book series since Walking Dead
, grabbing the attention of horror fans with its memorable characters, such as the young boy bravely battling cancer, and President Obama fighting animals-turned-
zombies in Louisiana right as a Katrina-like hurricane is bearing down on them. The IDW Publishing series has sold well, with Issue #1 requiring a second printing, and the creative team plans to continue beyond Issue #6, which will release in late February 2014.
