The Killing Jar


A comic book written and created by Justin Zimmerman, based on a completed feature length script. In production with illustrator Russ Brown.

If Sam Peckinpah directed Night of the Living Dead, if a particularly bloody Old Testament story was ghost written by Kathryn Bigelow and John Carpenter, if God’s favorite film was The Outlaw Josey Wales… there’d be something in the comic world like The Killing Jar. But there’s not. Yet.

A small Colorado town. Three drug runners with a van filled with product. Two police officers investigating suspicious activity. A heroic young woman with a violent past, a mentally handicapped little brother and her dead father’s .38 police special. And a throng of ravenous townspeople out of their minds with drug lust. Mix and…BANG!

“Take the religious fervor of PREACHER, mix it up with the action
chops of LA FEMME NIKITA and sprinkle in a little bit of DAWN OF THE DEAD and you have THE KILLING JAR, the most fun you can have legally. I can’t wait to see where the twisted road takes this one.”
