Eric Red’s classic zombies-in-space graphic novel Containment is coming back! And for the first time ever in hardcover and digital formats. Originally published by IDW Publishing back in 2005, it has been long out-of-print. The story takes place on a manned NASA space ship millions of miles from Earth, when a terrifying malfunction occurs in the cryogenic hypersleep pods containing the hibernating astronauts, turning most of the crew into the violently brain-dead. A handful of outnumbered astronauts awaken intact from their artificial slumber to find themselves pitted against murderous zombies running amok on the ship. The incredible artwork is by Nick Stakal and the introduction is by the legendary Wes Craven, who says about Containment, “It has blood, mayhem, sex, cat-and-mouse terror, and some of the best visual storytelling in years. Eric Red takes no prisoners. Read it with the lights on. Read it with a friend so you are not alone afterwards. Won't matter. You still won't be able to sleep afterwards. What better way to spend your remaining moments?"
SST Publisher Paul Fry says: "I'm extremely excited to be re-releasing Eric Red's incredible zombie graphic novel Containment. I'm a huge fan of sci-fi horror and Eric Red and Nick Stakal capture the sheer dread of being trapped in space and being hunted down by zombies perfectly. Eric Red, with his totally engaging and captivating storyline and Nick Stakal's extremely dark and terrifying artwork. It's a perfect combination. Add to that an introduction from movie legend Wes Craven and you can't go wrong! I know if people missed this book the first time they're going to love this new enhanced edition and be proud to have it sitting on their shelves."
