Zombies on a Boat!

What do you get when you take Mel Smith’s dark visions of a zombie apocalypse and Alex Nino’s spine tingling artistry? Why the brutal and starkĀ  thriller Dead Ahead of course!

This awesomely gruesome graphic novel became my great summer project to complete as an Audio Drama for Colonial Radio Theatre.

Taking a visual medium like a comic and turning it into audio drama is always an interesting puzzle. Graphic novels tend to have sparse dialogue, allowing the visuals to drive the story, while Audio Drama uses the conversations characters have to help paint those visuals.

I’ve really enjoyed filling in the edges of Mel’s powerful tale.

Here’s a snippet of a page of action. You’re going to want to pick this up from CRT when its released. It’s a powerhouse of emotional impact and zombie-loving horror!
