Outside of Hollywood, there is perhaps no greater destination for the undead than comics. Between Robert Kirkman's "The Walking Dead," Marvel's "Marvel Zombies" and DC's undead Black Lanterns, the medium is a veritable garden for the gruesome.

Now "Pride and Prejudice and Zombies," Seth Grahame Smith's augmentation of the Jane Austen novel that turns the Bennet sister into zombie-slaying warriors, is set to get the sequential art treatment courtesy of Del Rey Books in 2010.

Written by Tony Lee ("Doctor Who," "Spider-Man Family") and artist Cliff Richards ("Birds of Prey," "New Thunderbolts"), the adaptation was announced at Comic-Con this week.

With this announcement, could a "Sense and Sensibility and Sea Monsters" comic be far behind?
