In related news, local imprint Leeking Inc. announces the outbreak of Rigor Mortis #2 from its Baltimore-based containment facilities. Horror fans are advised to recognize and beware of the symptoms associated with the zine's sophomore issue, including, but not limited to:

- Dread Sockett aims for the heart of Klaus Kinski’s Nosferatu;
- Colin Cthulhu rises from the grave in defense of the "ZomCom";
- DeadVida survives a night in Colorado’s legendary Stanley Hotel;
- John Carpenter’s The Fog weathers Grim Pickens’s sea trials;
- "Christian horror", paranormal reality shows, plus a whole lot more.

Written and illustrated by long-time fixtures in the underground press, Rigor Mortis digs into the world of horror with a decided focus on the undead and their perennial roles in pop culture, offering essays, reviews and in-depth analysis of films, books, comics, graphic novels, websites and more. From the Resurrection to Reanimator, the timeless influences of Rigor Mortis #2 will surely appeal to shamblers and sprinters alike.

Supplementing the print edition, the Rigor Mortis blog offers timely updates of all things undead.
