People FUBAR: American History Z Recoil Staff April 30, 2014 0 COMMENT Zero Dead Thirty. Better Dead Than Red. FUBAR Guts and Glory. What’s not to like about those titles? 1961. From The Bay of Pigs to the Berlin Wall, FUBAR: Better Red Than Dead shows what happens when the KGB and CIA go head to head over a new weapon that makes three dimensional nuclear war look like a sensible alternative… FUBAR Press is a relatively small and young independent publishing company that publishes books of the black and white comic ‘pulp’ (great for a noir zombie feel, if that’s your thing). It was created in 2009, and includes contributors Steve Becker, Dominic Vivona, Jeff McComsey located in Lancaster Pennsylvania. They’ve enjoyed some great success in such a short period of time; their comics debuted in the New York Times Bestseller list for the week of January 13, 2012, before that receiving the following recognitions: IGN.com Readers Choice Best Anthology 2011, Nominated by Comic Monsters for Best Anthology & Best Original Graphic Novel of 2011, Nominated by Aint It Cool News for Best Annual/One Shot/Special and Best Cover of 2011.
