A New Character Takes on the Esteemed Role of Zombie Tramp (Action Lab NYCC Exclusives)

Posted by October 4, 2018 Comment

Comics has a long history of legacy characters, with new characters taking on the identity of an established superhero, often temporarily, and sometimes catapulting them to a new level of popularity when they return to their own superhero identity in the future. Or, if you believe comics-stabbing conspiracy theorists, they ruin comics with their SJW agenda. Whatever the case, a new legacy character is about to take on the mantle of a popular comic book hero, and it may be the most prestigious takeover we’ve seen yet.

Of course, we are talking about Zombie Tramp, which will see a new character take on the titular role. That character will be revealed on one of Action Lab’s NYCC exclusive variants, though the image is blacked out in the preview below. So if you’re at the con, go and pick up the variant cover, snap a photo, and send it to us so we can make a second clickbait article.

Check out the full list of Action Lab and Action Lab: Danger Zone (that’s the softcore porn imprint) below:

About Jude Terror

A prophecy says that in the comic book industry's darkest days, a hero will come to lead the people through a plague of overpriced floppies, incentive variant covers, #1 issue reboots, and super-mega-crossover events.

Scourge of Rich Johnston, maker of puns, and seeker of the Snyder Cut, Jude Terror, sadly, is not the hero comics needs right now... but he's the one the industry deserves.
