What could force a disgraced police officer, a pair of mafia hitmen, an army NCO, and a group of terrified civilians to band together for survival? Nothing short of the zombie apocalypse. The recently deceased are clawing from their graves and roaming the earth with an insatiable appetite for living flesh. In a hunted, desperate world, only the strong, smart, and fortunate will survive to see another day.

SurvivorZ is a character-focused episodic tale of horror adventure from acclaimed storyteller J.B. Cameron. It is a tribute to the original George Romero zombie horror, with a fresh take on the scientific origin behind the walking dead and unexpected, terrifying ramifications of the outbreak. New installments will be released biweekly (or thereabouts).
