The solicitation for Awakening Volume One reads as follows:
The once peaceful city of Park Falls has been tainted by a series of gruesome murders and missing persons. Cynthia Ford, well known as the town crazy, comes forward to speak with retired police detective Derrick Peters one January afternoon. She claims to have information about the murders, but does she hold the key to unlocking the mystery or has she truly gone insane?
To Derricks disbelief she utters one word:
Unable to ignore Cynthias information, though not sharing her beliefs, Derrick and others in the city explore the mystery as weeks turn to months and the death toll rises. Could Cynthia have been right? Follow the first half of Park Fallss year-long struggle for answers here

About Awakening: Chapters 1 3 of Awakening were originally serialized and released in 2007 to rave reviews and four British Eagle Award nominations: Favourite Newcomer Writer (Nick Tapalansky), Favourite Full Colour Comic Book American, Favourite New Comic Book, and Favourite Letterer (Thomas Mauer). Fans and critics alike enjoyed the unique take on the zombie genre, focusing on the noir mystery of a city slowly rotting from within rather than the typical mass uprising/fight for survival. Referred to as existential horror by the publisher, critics have said that its The coolest and most original zombie piece since The Walking Dead, (Broken Frontier), The next 30 Days of Night, (The Pullbox), and that main character Derrick Peters is where Phillip Marlowe meets George Romero, (Horrorview).
