American and British soldiers find themselves in Taliban-controlled mountains, hunted by the murderous undead! Think The Walking Dead meets Black Hawk Down! Packaged with a live action Stitched film directed by graphic novelist Garth Ennis!
Three American soldiers, the survivors of a helicopter crash in Afghanistan, struggle across the Taliban-controlled mountains. Injured and lacking food, water, and medicine, they discover something far worse than enemy fighters among the sun-bleached rocks: an ancient supernatural power, murderous and unstoppable. Despite a timely rescue demise by a handful of British S.A.S. commandos, they’re still hopelessly outnumbered by the shambling, ragged undead and the evil human intelligence that controls them. Critically acclaimed graphic novelist Garth Ennis and horror master Mike Wolfer rip the horrors of war right from today’s headlines and thrust it beyond the boundaries of sanity. Packaged with a Stitched DVD which includes the short film written and directed by Garth Ennis, an hour-long career retrospective interview with the graphic novelist, a behind-the-scenes “Making Of” documentary, and additional bonus features.
A cornerstone of the modern comic industry, Garth Ennis is most easily recognized as the creator of Preacher, one of the best-selling graphic novel series of all time. His full list of writing credits is nothing short of extraordinary; his career highlights include Judge Dredd, Hellblazer, The Demon, Hitman, Punisher, The Pro, War Story, and The Boys. Over the past ten years, Ennis has published numerous acclaimed and fan-favorite projects through Avatar Press, including Dicks, Chronicles Of Wormwood, 303, Streets Of Glory, and the wildly successful Crossed series. He wrote and directed his first film, Stitched, which Avatar Press will continue as an ongoing comic book series illustrated by Mike Wolfer. With a career spanning over twenty years, Mike Wolfer has been both writer and illustrator on many of Avatar Press' most popular titles, collaborating with some of the industry's most renowned writers including Warren Ellis, Garth Ennis, and Alan Moore. As the guiding force behind such horror titles as Night of the Living Dead, Friday the 13th, and Escape of the Living Dead, Wolfer cemented his reputation as one of today's top creators of supernatural tales, a trend has continues with his writing credits on Warren Ellis' Gravel and Garth Ennis' Stitched, both of which he also illustrates. Avatar's sister company, Boundless Comics, has also benefited from Wolfer's flair for the macabre, as he writes both Brian Pulido's Lady Death and the "bad girl" extravaganza title, War Goddess.
