It was written by Karl Kesel with artwork provided by Tom Grummett. The series featured a fictional covert organization working for the United Nations. Their mission being the investigation and containment of unexplained phenomena from around the world. At its start Section Zero was intended to be an ongoing series, but due to financial problems experienced by Gorilla Comics, only three issues were published. Gorilla Comics was intended to be a creator owned company financed by a comics related website,[1]. The website proved to be a financial failure, leaving the creators to personally finance their own books. Along with the other Gorilla Comics creators, Kesel and Grummett attempted to continue the series they started, but these efforts proved to be unsuccessful.[2] Contents 1 Publication history 2 Characters 3 Plot synopsis 3.1 Issue #1 3.2 Issue #2 3.3 Issue #3 3.4 Issue #4 4 Footnotes 5 External links Publication history The three issues of Section Zero that were published were dated June 2000, July 2000 and September 2000.
