Rex, Zombie Killer

In the wake of a zombie apocalypse, a small band of animals, led by a hyper-intelligent Golden Retriever named Rex, and accompanied by a baseball bat-wielding gorilla, begin their cross-country journey in the hope of finding safety...and a home. [Check out the audio trailer.]

The RZK story was published as a double-sized one-shot, followed by a four-issue miniseries. The characters also appeared in a short "zero" issue preview. Two one-page shorts also appeared in the Washington, D.C.-area tabloid-sized comic book newspaper Magic Bullet.


"...a wonderfully fresh and different take...charming and highly entertaining...it's pure fun, but so much more...Dafu Yu's artwork is bright and energetic..." FANGORIA magazine

"...fun, suspenseful and genuinely moving. Yes, the gorilla is cool, but any comic that brings a tear to this cynical reviewer's eye is a genuine winner." RUE MORGUE magazine

"...one of the most unique horror comics in years... It does feel like a story that takes place in the universe of The Walking Dead right down to the character interactions...this comic is FUN, plain and simple." SHOCK TILL YOU DROP

"Terrific characters, crisp writing, good art and storytelling, thrills aplenty...'Rex, Zombie Killer' is a smart, smart comic book..." COMIC BUYERS GUIDE - Tony's Tips

"What’s great about Rex is that it gives us a view of Armageddon through a fresh set of eyes...watching this gang of misfit creatures try to navigate danger (survive the zombies, encounter a biker gang) is a real hoot...and I can’t wait for the next issue. Like the little animals running through it, Rex has a lot of heart." AIN'T IT COOL NEWS

"Rex is so much more than another survival horror book...packs a ton of exciting skull-crushing content... BROKEN FRONTIER

"...the action starts up right away and never really backs off...a very well written and engaging story that goes far beyond just a simple gimmick...I loved this book, and I think you will too." NERDVANA (Bob Leeper)

"It’s We3 meets The Walking Dead, as this one-shot follows a group of animals trying to survive zombies." COMICS WORTH READING

"Just think how shocking it would have been if an ape with a Louisville Slugger came blasting out of Herschel's barn...a unique take on the zombie sub-genre..." DREAD CENTRAL

"Rex, Zombie Killer features a gorilla who fights zombies with a baseball bat. But, he's not Rex. Rex is a talking dog. Which means this might be the greatest idea since Hef said, 'add a naked girl in the centerfold
