Written by J.C. Vaughn, illustrated by Daniel Warner, and with a cover by Scott Morse, IDW Publishing continues to bring the stories of acclaimed science-fiction author Cory Doctorow with "When Sysadmins Ruled the Earth" that asks the question of who will keep the computers online when the end of the world comes? Winner of the Locus Award for best novelette of 2006. FC, $3.99, 32 pages, it's on Page 314 of the September 2007 PREVIEWS.

Since this is my first time adapting someone else's work, it was a very interesting experience to able to concentrate on the craft of writing the comic while staying faithful to Cory Doctorow's original short story. Additionally, it's a huge bonus for me to have a Scott Morse cover. Of his many impressive works, I liked his arc on Casefiles: Sam & Twitch best, but just about anything he's done has been worth checking out. I was on a panel with him before and he seemed as nice as he is talented.

From Moonstone Books, the exclusive Baltimore Comic-Con Edition of ZOMBIE-PROOF #1!
For 20 years, the denizens of San Rosina, Texas have thought locksmith Billy Bob Driwahl was at least a little crazy because he offered “zombie-proofing” in his Yellow Pages ad. Now that the world’s being overrun by zombies, though, he’s ready for them… but how did he know beforehand?

Zombie-Proof’s creators, J.C. Vaughn and Vincent Spencer, and cover artist Neil Vokes (The Black Forest) will be at this year’s show. The Zombie-Proof #1 Baltimore Comic-Con Edition is limited to 500 copies.
