Holy living fuck... I like, just emailed Robert Kirkman to suggest this a week ago. He obviously was already working on it, but still, awesome. There's no way today can suck now.

It all begins at the Taste of the Apple diner where he meets a sweet waitress named Peace. One look in his dark eyes will spark a love that will change everything… forever.
After winning the hearts of readers in Italy, Germany and France, BONEREST makes its debut in the US. This limited series kicks off with a special, over-sized premiere issue written by MATTEO CASSALI, co-writer of the upcoming Batman: Europa for DC Comics, and drawn by GUISEPPE CAMUNCOLI, artist of WildStorm's The Intimates. BONEREST is the surreal journey of a bizarre anti-hero who faces the symptoms of a never-before-seen kind of Apocalypse.
