On February 13, 1968, during the darkest days of the Vietnam conflict, the gates of hell opened wide, unleashing new and hungry life into the countless war-torn dead. The horrors of war take a back seat as an American tunnel rat crawls into a Viet Cong warren turned undead slaughterhouse, rotting snipers fire their final bullets from treetop perches, and freshly filled body bags twitch and rise from the slab.
There are zombies in the razor wire…
Welcome to 1968… and the end of the world.

Over Saigon, Private Kuen Yam and his band of survivors face all new horrors as their wounded plane forces them back into the grip of the dead.

A pep rally at Harbinger High in small town Pennsylvania becomes an orgy of undead violence in: ’68: PEECE AND LOVE. The Canadian snow runs red as Vietnam draft-dodgers flee the US seeking asylum with neutral neighbors to the north in ’68 DODGERS. And deep in the Butchertown district of San Francisco, a bloodthirsty madman who calls himself The Zodiac completes with the living dead for headlines, daring the remnants of a fragmented police force to catch him if they can in ’68: BAD SIGN!
’68: LAST RITES, VOL.6
The greatest city in the world is a wasteland of ice and snow.

This is 1970, two years since the rise of the living dead. This is ’68: LAST RITES, the climactic sixth volume in the epic, award-winning military/horror comics series. From the fortified Flatiron Building, where survivors hold onto life with a white-knuckled grip, to Chinatown, where the stiffening dead rise from subways filled with starving rats, an island off the Jersey coast where living horrors feast on human flesh…to the steaming jungles of Vietnam, where a masked hero becomes a legend and his name, a battle cry.
