Hey finally I’m the first one. I’ve been reading this religiously and I have to say it is by far one of my favorite comics. The art is excellent and the writing is great. Good luck with the movie, and if you film any sceens in Texas, look me up.
Who hasn’t said “fuck” before? That would be about the first thing I would say if I ever saw one zombie, let alone a whole horde.
I think this is a perfectly legitimate reaction for April. How far can a person’s perception of reality be challenged without breaking her?
Given that zombies have been around for how long now? By now, the survivors must be fairly used to seeing decomposed remains of humans albeit animated. Speaking from experience, going into an Anatomy Lab at a college can be distressing enough.
On the other hand, what about vampires that suddenly show up professing to protect you? Suddenly the enemies are not just the malformed shamblers outside. Since everyone around April was reacting to the vampires, she could not simply ignore them so the next sense of action is killing them. Extreme perhaps, but still a reaction.
xD Oh noes, the f-bomb! But seriously, after EVERYTHING it takes her this long to drop it?
April doesn’t do anything for me, but it IS nice to get these good shots of her finally. Glad to see she’s slowly coming down. Hasn’t stabbed Math yet… good sign! I should give her credit. If it was me, I woulda thrown myself at him already.
Oh, I noticed where you’re from by through you +EV comic, Mr. Crosby. I’m from Pasadena. ^^ We have a family business in ‘cadia though.
Personally, if I were to encounter a horde of zombies, I would be more likely to say ‘shit’ than ‘fuck.’ It seems to me to be the more logical choice to mention excrement rather than sex when faced with sheer terror, especially since one would likely be forced to deal with exactly that in one’s pants.
Just wanted to say that April has actually never been within 50 yards of a “living” zombie probably. Their town has been spared from any big invasion (obviously) and April has never had to go out and fight or anything.
I am loving this comic so far! zombies scare the hell out of me like no other boogie monsters can! (well except for Jaws, but thats cus I live on an island in the Caribbean!) its completely illogical but I am petrified of zombies, so if it were me I would clinging to Math like celo-tape! I see his reasoning perfectly, anyone knowing even the minimal about vampires would realise that zombies taking over the world would be bad news for vamps! and at least you can talk and possibly reason with vamps.. zombies are just yucky! still feel sorry for April, wouldnt want to be in her shoes either way!
“Vamps shouldâ€™ve got their act together sooner, I donâ€™t think thatâ€™s a viable population remaining.”
It’s complicated. They didn’t want to reveal themselves too soon to millions of people, and how could they help protect millions anyway? Or even thousands? They basically only can protect small groups. This is the only way it works.
“Also what was the army doing all this time, these zombies donâ€™t look so tough.”
They were dying. Tons of nuclear bombs went off for various reasons — some strategically against the zombies early on, some from wackos like North Korea and various terrorists. All kinds of stuff going on, while the zombie population just keeps growing and growing. And the zombies actually are tough at times, as you’ll hear more about later.
And thanks for the link, but for LB I’m only linking to other comics that me or Owen does.
Just found this comic, and I’ve got to say I’m pretty intrigued. Mostly because zombie and vampire mythology is so well built up and (dare I say it?) “done” that it’ll be interesting to see what direction you take this in.
So: Go you!
So, care to clue me in as to how many people would be left in the lovely land of Australia?
Actually i love April, she is the only person ive ever seen in these sort of stories acknowlaging the fact that THIS IS CRAZY! Reality shouldnt be like this! It would be really hard to wrap your mind around that!
also i love that she has never said the F word before haha i dont say it either
Loving the story so far gonna keep reading now there are like 60 more pages to go!
i would want to become a vampire, for the awesomeness of being strong, pretty immortal, theonly thing i want is that i can still eat normal food!!!!!!!!! would be so fucked up if i couldn’t :O
why is she so anti-vampire… i wonder how i would do in a zombo apocalypse, i think i’d do pretty well
