‘Rocko’s Modern Life’ Comics Series Getting Zombie Arc, ‘Rocko’s Modern Afterlife’

Move over Archie, there’s a new afterlife comic series coming to town. “Rocko’s Modern Afterlife,” a limited series run from BOOM! Studios based on the Nickelodeon animated series “Rocko’s Modern Life,” will hit comic shops this April and follows Rocko and friends as they try to survive a zombie outbreak in O-Town.

The announcement came late last week when BOOM! Studios teased the first issue of the comic with a “first look” that included cover art and a few pages of the comic itself. Check out the synopsis of the comic below:

Welcome to the future of O-town where everyone’s cell phone is glued to their hands, Heffer makes a living streaming video games online, and the latest app lets you avoid all contact with everyone else without even looking up from your gadget! But even in the midst of this techno-utopia, there’s something not quite right with Rocko’s fellow citizens as the authorities call for a city-wide lockdown. While Rocko takes the two weeks as a time to chill and unplug from technology, the rest of the town seems to be going mad. When danger comes knocking at his door, the newly zen wallaby will have to choose whether to stay barricaded within his increasingly surrounded home or venture forth into a wasteland filled with mindless versions of his friends and neighbors.
