House of the Dead is a comic that served as a prequel tie-in to the 2003 film of the same name. It is written and illustrated by Eli 5 Stone and published by Artisan Comics Group.
The story follows a small group of teens looking for the rave being held on the island they're currently on. After docking their canoe, the teens decided to split up to look for the rave. Two of the teens encounter a strange man who seems to them looks half-dead. As one of the teens inspect the strange man, he took a bite out of her finger and proceeded to attack them. The others heard their screams and rushed to their friends, only to find their mangled remains. The same zombie later appeared again and kills one of the teens, leaving only the two of them left. More zombies appear out of the woods and the two remaining teens rush for the boat, but in the ensuing chaos one of them, Angela, was killed, leaving one sole surviving teen. As the last teen heads for the boat, he spots a pale-looking woman and tells her to escape with him. The two manage to reach the boat and paddle away from shore and the undead, the last teen is relieved that they are finally save and ask for the woman's identity. The woman reveals herself as one of the undead, much to the teen's shock and she proceeds to kill him.
