With HOMEFRONT, the fifth volume in the ongoing ’68 series, the focus on Vietnam and the war shifts to the American continent, revealing three red, dripping slices of post-apocalyptic life in the USA and Canada. A pep rally at Harbinger High in a small Pennsylvania town becomes an orgy of undead violence in ’68: PEECE AND LOVE. The Canadian snow runs red as Vietnam draft-dodgers flee the US seeking asylum with neutral neighbors to the north in ’68 DODGERS. And deep in the Butchertown district of San Francisco, a bloodthirsty madman who calls himself The Zodiac completes with the living dead for headlines, daring the remnants of a fragmented police force to catch him if they can in ’68: BAD SIGN! Five full issues plus a cover gallery, pin-ups, and tons of behind-the-scenes extras available nowhere else!”
