Artist Dennis Williams has created something really amazing.  Ginger-Stein: Rise of the Undead is a brand new comic book series and what I love is all the characters are modeled after actors.  It’s has beautiful art and I can not wait to see it in print!  Oh and I make an appearance as a Zombie!  I’m honored to be a part of this project.

You can check out the trailer below and visit the Official Ginger-Stein website for all the information on where to get these amazing comic books!
