Tethered is an existentialist zombie original graphic novel created by writer David Faroz Precht and artist Danny Luckert with lettering and design by Lindsay McComb.
The story centers around two 20-somethings in Colorado “living” after a zombie apocalypse as “souls” tethered to their zombie bodies, experiencing the horror that their former bodies exact.
David Faroz Precht is a Persian-American author living in Oakland with his designer wife. He is a brand and advertising freelance/contract copywriter by day. Precht loves baseball, absurdity, cooking, philosophy and sociology. Despite a similar name, he is not the German philosopher.

“With that we should ask some questions about Tethered. Is it good? Does the genre need it? The answer is yes, absolutely. In fact the genre needs more Tethered and less of that other stuff.”
“Tethered is a completely different take on the idea of zombies, and one met with the descriptive voice of David Faroz Precht and the killer artwork of Danny Luckert.”
“I must admit, I wouldn’t normally pick up a comic on zombies but I thought it was an interesting take on zombie outbreaks, watching your cadaver shuffle around from the afterlife.”
