New Detroit soda line based on zombie comic 'DeadWorld'
Dearborn Heights-based Caprice Brands LLC will launch its DeadWorld soda line at a Friday party at Best Western Plus Sterling Inn in Sterling Heights.
DeadWorld soda is based on the zombie comic book DeadWorld, published by Detroit-based Caliber Comics LLC.
The soda line features 12 flavors, including Goon Bitters cherry cola, Graveyard Delight ginger ale and black cherry-flavored Royal Rotter. The bottle labels are illustrated mostly by local artists.
Caprice principal Gary Reed is also the publisher of Caliber Comics. Soda will be sold in 4- and 12-packs; the 12-pack will include a mini-comic.
Detroit-based Intrastate Distributors Inc. is the distributor.
