'68 Volume 6: Last Rites Paperback / softback
by Mark Kidwell
The greatest city in the world lies blanketed in ice and snow.
There are nolights on Broadway, no taxis clogging the streets and the Empire State standslike a frozen tombstone blanketing a dead metropolis in its shadow.
These arethe Popsicle Fields...a labyrinth of New York streets littered with the frozenundead.
This is 1970, two years since the rise of the cannibalistic dead.
Thisis '68: LAST RITES, the climactic sixth volume in the epic, award-winningmilitary/horror comics series that brings all branching storylines to a close. From the fortified Flatiron Building, where a band of survivors holds onto lifewith a white-knuckled grip, to the battle-torn streets of Chinatown where thestiffening dead rise from subways filled with starving rats, an island off theJersey coast where living horrors feast on human flesh...to the steaming junglesof Vietnam, where a hero will fall only to spawn an army of masked avengers whofind retribution in his legend and a battle cry in his name.
