Virus is Spreading the Infection via Sandawe

Virus: Highborn is the second episode of the apocalyptic zombie-series from the hand of Flemish artist Patrick Cornelis.

A witch cult uses an ancient magical book to visit other realms in search for more power. On one of those worlds something goes seriously wrong as they inadvertently release a dark entity. They barely make it back to Earth unknowingly bringing the entity along with them. As soon as it arrives it starts infecting everything around it turning humans into brain dead flesh-eating monsters. Sebastian, the last surviving warlock, forces Will, a man at the wrong place at the wrong time, to absorb the combined force of the warlocks before he dies from the infection.

Will, who goes through life as Warlock now, runs with the book in his possession. He wanders the desolate world for months overwhelmed by grief over the loss of his son. Eventually he finds an ally and stumbles onto a small group of survivors who are in the middle of a massive zombie-attack! In the second episode, a higher being is introduced into the fight against Saren. Warlock will learn his involvement with this universal high-power and will gain insight in how the magic that flows through his gains works and how to channel it. They lift the veil on the source of the infection that spreads the planet. In this second epic episode, full of battle scenes and hordes of zombies, Warlock and his team suffer losses and gain new allies but… nothing could prepare them for what happens when they finally have a showdown with Saren…

Patrick Cornelis released the first issue via his own publishing company Pangolin Comics. He is in the middle of crowdfunding the second issue Virus: Highborn.

About the author Patrick Cornelis

Art and drawing have been a part of his life from the very beginning. The study directions at school, as well as his professional career, have been heavily influenced by it.

After an art-driven education he went to college at Saint-Luc in Gent where he got my degree in Advertising and Communication. Quickly he realized a profession as an independent graphic designer was the way to go.

This activity as an independent designer forced him to push the love of drawing to the background but since a year or two ago, he rediscovered the passion and it hit him with the force of a volcanic eruption. And it hasn’t let him go since.

Although he had several projects he worked on through the years there was always something that was off. Either he didn’t like the work he did on it or the story didn’t really suit him or some other excuse.

With Virus: Primary Infection he finally found a project he was ready to go for. Like a man possessed he began developing the story and signed on to the crowdfunding website where he is trying to fund his second issue Virus: Highborn as well.
