“Andâ€¦ damn, that mustached guy really seems like a hungry kid looking at a pudding! May we have him on the next page! ”
You’re right! It looks so FUNNY when you think of that and look at him! hehehe….
Is it just my spotty computer monitor or does Math look neanderthal/gorilla -ish in the first panel?
Great work as ever.
Wow… Really… I just found this comic, and love it! Craziest part was when Aberdeen, South Dakota mentioned. Why? Because I grew up in the area so it kinda really hit home in a oddly true meaning of the word. Must say as harsh as Math says he is he sure seems to get along well with April. Even though she disobeyed his orders he still looks more worried than angry.
I know it’s been said that Murdo’s mom isn’t going to turn into a zombie, and I apologize if I missed a discussion on this, but when people get turned into zombies, to they decompose at an accelerated rate?
I’ve always wondered about this, because people seem to become the stereotypical zombie pretty much on impact in… well I think every zombie movie or comic I’ve seen (which isn’t terribly many, but enough). I’m curious why there aren’t ever any zombies in transition, intact and not rotted, but still crazy with hunger for brains or flesh.
Oraxia, these things have been answered like a trillion times in the comments so far. You can actually search for “Last Blood” comments on Google and specific things in them.
They become a zombie “on impact” only if they’re killed on impact. If the wounds they receive wouldn’t normally be fatal, but they are bitten by a zombie, they go through a 24 hour process of turning into a zombie, as you’ll see Mustache Man go through in the next 30 pages or so. About decomposing: It’s not really an issue in this story. The zombies can go years without decomposing so much that they can’t fight anymore.
I think the comment Oraxia was making was actually one that hasn’t been touched on before. Not about zombie changes or decomposing so far that they can’t really accomplish anything anymore. We’ve talked about those. :p I think the question was, the zombies are all rotting, right? Skin peeling away and rather stinky? Do they become like that instantly after they become zombies? (be it after the 24 hours or after they die, whichever comes first) or do they decompose if they’ve been a zombie for a while? For instance – Mustache Man. When he becomes a zombie, will it be immediately, visually obvious? Will he look all decomposed right away, or does a zombie, after ‘dying’ and BECOMING a zombie, take as long to rot away to full zombie-looking-ness as a corpse would, or is it instantaneous? I myself am thinking the answer would be no, they’d look about as old as their corpse would look, and a new zombie would pass for human – except perhaps for a wound, bloody or rotting or festering.

Gack, Bobby, I swear, if you don’t stop scripting awesome comics, I’m going to… I dunno… Start stalking you and try to steal your brain? >.>; Ahem. Anyway.
Been following Last Blood for a little while now; and I’m loving it. To bits. Really. But I decided to join in the rotting-zombie-debate.
I write, myself; and there’s kind of zombies in what I’m writing at the moment. Basically, the zombies have slightly-accelerated decomposition; if they were perfectly still, they’d decompose at the rate of your average corpse. However, they’re walking, running around, and having all sorts of fun and games; but, how shall I put it… They aren’t meant to be. Their bodies cannot sustain their activities; so therefore there are adverse affects.
This is just my personal theory on how the decomposition of a zombie would work; Bobby may have his own theory where it actually takes longer for a zombie to decompose, or he may mentally see them decomposing at the rate of a normal dead body.
However, having a newly-turned zombie suddenly being decomposed would just be… Well, I can’t think of a way it would work. Not that it matters because it’s not the case.
Courtney hit on what I was after in asking about decomposition. Thank you for the clarification of my intent, Courtney, I didn’t realize I was being so vague ^_^
That image is actually part of what got me thinking on the speed of decomposition, because as you can see in that cover and in the new page, Jimmy’s mouth appears rotting and torn o_0 I try not to think that it got that way because another zombie chewed his lips off ^^;;
so this is the matheson family shield. I’m posting this back here to see if it works before putting it on the most recent page if it does.
