Seriously, everywhere I turn.
First off, The Stiff returned last week. One of the most genuinely spooky comics out there, it went on a sizable hiatus just as the story was really starting to get good. It appears to be back and fully in action with a weekly update, which is very good news indeed.
Continuing the zombie theme, they appear to currently be Dr. McNinja’s opponents of choice, which is usually as good a guage of the current internet craze as anything else. Also, he demonstrates the proper way for killing zombies – and by proper, I mean “most badass.”
Finally, I just discovered Last Blood, by Bobby Crosby and Owen Gieni, in which zombies have wiped out nearly the entire world, and vampires – in danger of losing their food source – desperately fight to keep the last remnants of humanity alive.
Come on, you can’t deny that is a great premise!
It’s well executed, too. As a matter of fact, I’ve been impressed with all of Bobby Crosby’s recent webcomic endeavors – not only are they good concepts and put together well, but there is an atmosphere of professionalism about them all. I should explain that my first encounter with Bobby was seeing him posting in one of the flame wars that were so prevalent in the webcomic community several years back – wherein he managed to make Scott Kurtz look like the most rational and even-tempered individual around. Bobby’s own comic at the time, Pupkin, wasn’t the most impressive strip out there.
I’d say he’s come a long way since then.
Speaking of zombies, have you ever taken a look at Zed Reckoning? It’s great-looking and has a promising story, even if the update schedule is a bit on the slow side.
And don’t forget http://www.thezombiehunters.com/comic/tzh/
Yeah, I’ve been following Zed Reckoning over at Graphic Smash, and it definitely seems like the start of a good story – but also a plot-driven enough one that the slow updates are especially painful. Still, I’m eager to see where it goes.
And James, I haven’t forgotten about the Zombie Hunters – keep your eyes open for more zombie mojo tomorrow. 😉
Bobby Crosby is a douchebag.
