The upcoming Dead Day adaptation, based on the books by Ryan Parrott, will be fun to see Julie Plec and Kevin Williamson taking on a comic book adaptation. They have plenty of experience with series and adaptations so this project is in good hands.

About The Book: Meet the Haskins, a seemingly normal suburban family, as they prepare for the annual macabre holiday known as “Dead Day” – when the deceased rise from the grave from sunset to sunrise. Some come back to reunite with family and friends, others for one last night of debauchery, still others with only one thing on their decomposing minds: revenge.
