Roberson, co-creator of DCâ€™s I, ZOMBIE, teams up with 48 STRON artist Robert Adler to create a stunning portrayal of Earth immediately following nuclear fallout in spectacular detail.

According to David Steinberger, comiXology CEO, â€Dust to Dust #1 brings a classic comic to a new generation of fans worldwide.
