ZED #6 is here!

ZED #6 just arrived from the printer and is now available from our site. I must say that this issue looks very good. Quebecor did a superb job with the printing. We started using a new type of paper with issue #5 (Orion 60Lbs) and it really captures all the subtleties of the grayscale.

Also, please make sure your local comic book retailer is aware of ZED. Let them know that ZED can be ordered straight from Diamond Comics. Here are the ordering numbers:

ZED #5: FEB052857
ZED #6: APR052910
ZED Vol. 1 Hardcover: STAR17109
ZED Vol. 1 Softcover: STAR17110
