The first issue of the promosing looking London Horror Comic was released last week in the UK (Thursday 5th September 2008). It got a very respectable 4/5 in the latest SFX magazine here in the UK.
More details, including an 8 page preview, can be found at http://www.londonhorrorcomic.com
Tune in for more from the 13th Floor next week.
More info on Charlie Brooker’s Dead Set taken from here.
The drama is set in a Britain where the walking dead are attacking the living. It stars Jaime Winstone (Donkey Punch, Goldplated) as a production runner working on a fictional series of Big Brother who tries to fend off the walking dead alongside the remaining housemates, her producer boss Patrick (Andy Nyman, Severance) and boyfriend Riq (Riz Ahmed, Britz).
Dead Set also features a range of cameo guest appearances including Davina McCall and several former Big Brother housemates.
In Dead Set the Big Brother house suddenly becomes one of the few remaining safe places in the country, with the contestants blissfully unaware of the horrific events unfolding outside. Until an eviction night where all hell breaks loose…
Over the ensuing days, in a cruel echo of the game show that they thought they were entering, the contestants fall victim, one by one, to the hungry masses outside. Staying alive requires teamwork – which is tricky when you’re a group specifically selected by TV producers to wind each other up.
It’s apparently five episodes long, (not six as previously posted), but four of those episodes are a half hour in length and one is an hour long.
