With the 50th issue of Gary Reed's Deadworld approaching next year, Desperado Publishing and Image Comics are gearing up in December with a new trade paperback and a new storyline.

Deadworld: Requiem for the World will collect the first six issues of the Image Comics series -- which followed runs at Arrow Comics and Caliber Press.

The trade paperback, with an introduction by Tom Sniegoski, will be 152 pages, will cost $16.99 and will be in stores on Dec. 13.

According to Joe Pruett, publisher of Desperado, the trade paperback follows so closely to the most recently released issue of the current series because of the lack of availability of the series.

"The first issue sold out almost immediately and the quantities of the remaining issues are very low that they could sell out at any time," Pruett said. "It makes it hard for new readers to get into the series if they can't get the comics. So, we're launching the trade."

Deadworld #7 will arrive in stores the week after the trade paperback and features the "Slaughterhouse" arc, which moves the story ahead a few months and shifts the focus from the teens fleeing the zombies to a group of humans who embark on a plan to take their world back from the dead.

The story is written by Reed, with art by Dalibor Talajic. Michael Gaydos is providing covers.

Deadworld had had three volumes. The first volume ran 26 issues and featured such artists as Vince Locke, James O¹Barr, and Phil Hester before re-starting as volume two, which ran for 15 issues. After a hiatus while the property was tied up in Hollywood, Deadworld volume three launched in 2005 from Desperado and Image.

Deadworld #10, the fourth issue of the "Slaughterhouse" arc, will be the 50th overall issue of Deadworld. There also have been more than a dozen other related one-shots and mini-series.
