“As a long-time fan of both Jonathan Maberry and the Rot & Ruin series, I am truly honored to help bring this thought-provoking and wonderfully imaginative post-apocalyptic story to life as a web comic series,” said Taylor Grant, SVP IP Development. “It is yet another example of Webtoon’s commitment to telling increasingly sophisticated stories that will continue to broaden our reach.”
Rot & Ruin is a coming-of-age story set during a zombie-infested, post-apocalyptic America where every teenager is forced to get a job by the time they turn fifteen. For Benny Imura, that job is the last one he ever wanted—to apprentice as a zombie hunter for his overbearing older brother Tom. However, on his journey through the post-apocalyptic wasteland, Benny discovers that zombies are not always the greatest thing to fear, and ultimately, what it truly means to be human.
