Read this Dead Island comic book in your browser now

You’ll have to wait a week before you explore the zombie-infested tropical paradise of Dead Island. But get a head start on the tale of a zombie virus that completely and totally messes s**t up by reading prequel comic book… for free!

Previously only available as a physical edition given away at San Diego Comic Con, a digital version of the Dead Island comic book is now available online. The book tells the story of a serious business journalist who comes to the island of Banoi and finds he’s bitten off more than he can chew. Or he gets bitten and chewed on. Maybe both. Get it? Zombies!

Check the comic by heading over to Marvel’s digital website, and check back next week for our full review of Dead Island.
