Face the Mindless Hordes in ROCKO’S MODERN AFTERLIFE from BOOM! Studios

O-Town Overrun by Mysterious Epidemic in April 2019

BOOM! Studios today announced ROCKO’S MODERN AFTERLIFE will be available in stores on April 3, 2019. In this four-issue limited series from writer Anthony Burch (Borderlands 2) and artist Mattia Di Meo (Adventure Time/Regular Show), everyone’s favorite wallaby, Rocko, is trying to survive the zombie outbreak that’s taken over his home of O-Town! 

Too much screen time was already making O-Town’s citizens mindless, but now something is turning them into mindless zombies, and Rocko wants nothing to do with it. He barricades himself and his pup Spunky in their home, determined to outlast the hordes. But desperate times call for desperate measures when Rocko’s best friend Heffer becomes infected. Rocko will have to risk everything to save his friends and his city! 

Rocko’s Modern Life has always been laced with hilarious social commentary, but now we’re taking things up a notch by infusing that humor with a dose of the undead,” said editor Matthew Levine. “Anthony and Mattia are crafting a Rocko story like never before and one that can’t be missed.”

ROCKO’S MODERN AFTERLIFE #1, featuring a main cover by Ian McGinty (Adventure Time, Invader Zim) and preorder variant cover by illustrator and artist Joey McCormick (Teen Titans Go To The Movies), is the latest release as part of the partnership between Nickelodeon and BOOM! Studios’ award-winning KaBOOM! imprint, home to comics for middle grade and younger readers.

Print copies of ROCKO’S MODERN AFTERLIFE #1 will be available on April 3, 2019 at local comic book shops (use comicshoplocator.com to find the one nearest you), or at the BOOM! Studios webstore. Digital copies can be purchased from content providers like comiXology, iBooks, Google Play, and the BOOM! Studios app.
