  1. Ray Says:

    That’s one smart zombie.

  2. Austin W Says:

    awsome. but its scary that the zombies can fire an rpg,why arent they all using big guns?
    and A.F.P is never wrong!

  3. Anko Says:

    Actually, it wouldn’t be Payne’s first time being wrong…
    Where did TFZ pick up that uniform?

  4. Bobby Crosby Says:

    “but its scary that the zombies can fire an rpg,why arent they all using big guns?”

    Um, that’s The First Zombie. He can do anything. As Math said on Page 84, it takes a more concentrated effort for TFZ to make the other zombies do difficult things, like fire a big gun, for example. And there’s clearly no need for that anyway. Keep in mind that he could have just aimed the RPG at the school and killed all the humans, just like he could have done that any time he wanted. As I’ve said many times (and as Devian and Addison have said in the comic), he set a trap for all the vampires and now he has to try to lock them up to make sure they don’t kill themselves. There are other aspects to this as well.

    “Where did TFZ pick up that uniform?”

    It’s his. Decided to wear it for his big victory night, makes him feel more like he’s doing something honorable and right.

    What was Payne wrong about before?

  5. Chris Says:

    I’m curious why a zombie with a rotten almost fleshless head and no eyes bothers looking through the rpg sights? I know tfz sees through them but this one doesn’t seem to have eyes any more.

    Rage in the second panel looks like an old drunken man for some reason. very action filled scene though, like it.

  6. Chris Says:

    Oh, never mind, I didn’t know that it was TFZ, guess he must have eyes in there somewhere.

  7. Bobby Crosby Says:

    “I didn’t know that it was TFZ”

    This is making me sad. I thought it would be the most obvious thing of all time. They’re talking about him before and after the panel where we see him and Math is specifically saying how Addison said the First Zombie wouldn’t let them leave the — BOOM! And literally about a trillion other reasons for why it’s extremely obvious that it’s TFZ, but anyway, blah blah blah.  Three to five pages from now we’ll start seeing a lot more of TFZ, so it’s no big deal — we’ll know right away when we see him that it’s the same guy who fired the rocket from the roof and the people who didn’t realize it was him will now understand.

  8. Jarastu Says:

    if i remember the cover TFZ had his left eye left (

  9. Jarastu Says:

    meh, my question got lost :(
    i wanted to ask if TFZ is a bloodstarved vampire he should be able to kill with a wooden stick?

  10. Bobby Crosby Says:

    Correct. Read previous comments of mine for more info.

  11. Anko Says:

    So Murdo’s family were keeping the uniform in their house, or what? Was it sent back to them after TFZ “died in the war and was buried at sea”?

  12. Bobby Crosby Says:

    No, none of that, but those are also fine options. And tell me what Payne was wrong about before.

  13. Razor Venom Says:

    I must say, I started reading this about 2 weeks ago (started at the beginning), and I’m loving this comic!!!! Keep up the excellent work. I had a feeling that was TFZ, since he looks so, well, clean for a zombie (the old uniform helped as well).

  14. Anko Says:

    Well, April isn’t TFZs granddaughter, right?
    He said: “… JUST BECAUSE
    A GRANDDAUGHTER HE’S NEVER MET
    ASKS HIM TO?”

  15. Alk Says:

    I was first like, Nooow, he blew Math up!!, but then i was like, ow, a rpg isnt wood, and then i was like, yay!! (cous hes not dead (yet))
    And payne still thinks there is just 1 First Zombie, not 2.
    Cous Sullivan is leading the smaller group of running zombies right??
    Ao its accually This First Zombie :P

  16. Dro Says:

    Anko, that statement is along the same lines as the not letting them leave statement … and he didn’t let him leave.

    Also, TFZ hasn’t let up, yet. So, technically, Addison Payne hasn’t been wrong yet.

  17. DarkKnight412 Says:

    “if i remember the cover TFZ had his left eye left”

    Nope. Most definitely a dark, gaping socket where said eye used to be.

  18. Jarastu Says:

    oh sorry wrong side ^^’
    i meant his right eye(even if its just glooming, could be possible ;) )

  19. Dro Says:

    Also, I took it that the zombie thrown in the dumpster by Murdo and Grady was TFZ. Because of the whole he’s from WWII. Later, April’s father being in WWII helped confirm that.

    The only thing that confuses me is when Bobby said: “It’s his. Decided to wear it for his big victory night, makes him feel more like he’s doing something honorable and right.” Because if TFZ was the one that Murdo and Grady threw in the dumpster, he was already wearing the uniform … and why would he ever bother changing it? Blood? Smell? Why would he care? He’s animated rotting flesh

  20. Fernando Hulio Says:

    TFZ looks like a nice guy, he´s got style.

  21. Ninmecu Says:

    Wow, I nearly fell off my chair laughing at this, extremely well presented. Note to the unwise, never doupt the word of Addison FUCKING Payne. You won’t live to regret it

  22. Dude Says:

    I just remembered something. When April threatened to shove a stick through Math in the beginning of the comic (page 24), she could have killed him right?

    Also, i just noticed how much the art has improved since the beginning. Much better, clearer lines, and shading. Great work Owen.

  23. NickGXZ Says:

    TFZ is smiling, isn’t he?

    I mean, aside from the lack of skin on his face…it just seems like he’s happy. o_O

  24. Crazy Artist Says:

    Hey Anko, April is indeed TFZ’s granddaughter, remember? Can’t remember what page exactly, but Math was asking who Sullivan Davis was, and it was her grandpa who fouhgt in WWII and died. He’s the TFZ.

    “Yay! Take this you bloodsuckers! First kill of the day! (Nice truck…)”

  26. Will Says:

    Don’t worry about people not recognizing TFZ Bobby, in the movie format he’ll be recognized from the beginning when he walks the ocean and bites people. That was months ago for us, but only hours ago in the movie.

    Is he on the roof of the Davis farm though, or on another roof?

  27. achrin Says:

    the davis house has one fireplace and one monster vampire rocket propelled grenade firing world war 2 uniform wearing happy face zombie creating mad vampire who looks like he loves it when a plan comes together ..

  28. Cat Says:

    *rofl*
    Oh…my god….that was hilarious…I love how TFZ looks in that panel.

  29. Jesse Says:

    I guess I just had trouble recognizing TFZ on account of the lack of zombie-sexy (not that I’m a gay necropheliac, but I’m sure there are some female corpses that would like this look) exposed chest with dog tags and the messed-up hair. I like Bobby’s explanation of how this is his big day, so he wants to look nice. I’m currently in the process of reading every flipping comment all the way from page one. It is not a fast process, but I’m mostly just focusing on Bobby’s, since he won’t verbally pimpslap me for not paying attention to other people’s posts.

  30. Irish Says:

    Is it bad that I’m rooting for TFZ?

  31. Raze Says:

    Anyone else think TFZ looks like a nazi there?

  32. Al Says:

    “Is it bad that I’m rooting for TFZ?”

    Well, TFZ is so badass that even AFP is betting on the zombies. ;)

  33. Jesse Says:

    Y’know, some sequel to “Return of the Living Dead” had super-augmented zombies, I think. And one of them may have had a chain/mini-gun. This is cooler. And by “cooler,” I mean it kicks more @$$ than an ill-tempered donkey farmer.
    When I started reading this comic, it was a late night and I was browsing the Web for zombie comics. Most were horrid. I found this one, started reading at the beginning, and to be honest, when I got to the introduction of Math and Val (the “introduction” being their first scene, not their speech to the humans right after that) I almost groaned and actually kept reading because I had a craving for a cheesy story.
    Well, I went to the wrong place. It’s not cheesy-great, it’s great-great. The “head game” Math and Val played seemed cheesy at the time, but retrospectively fits them quite nicely. This whole comic has been a very pleasant surprise, and I now check it quite regularly.
    That was my Last Blood testimonial. I don’t want to waste too much space on Bobby’s page, but if anyone else wants to share how they got turned on to this comic, I for one would be kind of interested to hear it.

  34. Lord Klingsor Says:

    I know, I know, it’s not a wooden stake, but it still doesn’t look like something pleasant.

    Also I CERTAINLY wish Addison F. Payne (really, even I cannot help thinking of him as that anymore) was wrong when he said he will spend eternity locked up in a cell; so [i]that[/i] might in fact be his first mistake. Well, I hope it was, anyway, because I admire Addison F. Payne to no end. (Although I am truly sorry about what middle name he has unfortunately gotten.)

    Poor Addison F. Payne.

  35. Lord Klingsor Says:

    PS. I think I have commented on this site before but then I called myself Medea. Because it says my comment is awaiting moderation. So seemingly I have not used this name before. Or am I just using another E-mail address, and it is because of that?

  36. Katy Says:

    How much gel does that vampire with the mohawk need to keep that thing up like that?? Wow – impressive. Or maybe that’s his vampire power – the mighty power of the mohawk! Woot!

  37. Szyronn Says:

    How much gel does that vampire with the mohawk need to keep that thing up like that?? Wow – impressive. Or maybe that’s his vampire power – the mighty power of the mohawk! Woot!

    maybe he never washes his hair an it stands up because of all the dirt??

    anyway terrific page

  38. Pablo618 Says:

    HITLER’S BACK!!!!!!!!! LOL!

  39. Dylander Says:

    wow teh first zombie looks alot like a nazi officer. but he does look nice none the less, cuase if your gonna destroy the world you have to do it in style.
    also when i say the last panel i couldn’t help but say “OH SNAP!” outloud
    damn this comic is good

    P.S. MOHAWK POWER!

    ~Dylan

  40. Penn Says:

    I figure his hair stays up because it is scared to get too close to him. He keeps it that way with pure anger.

  41. Ian Cudmore Says:

    So, heres a question:
    Vampires are created when a human is biten by a vampire
    The First Zombie is a blood starved vampire
    Zombies are created when a human is bitten by a zombie or TFZ
    Vampires can only be killed by a wooden stake through the heart
    why can zombies be killed with bullets, or by removing their heads etc?
    shouldn’t what kills one kill the other?

  42. Jesse Says:

    I imagine there are significant differences between
    1. A human
    2. A vampire
    3. A first zombie, created by starving a vamire
    4. A human-gone-zombie, created by infecting the human with some kind of toxin/virus/bacteria that formed in the first zombie due to his starvation
    5. A human-gone-zombie, created by infecting the human with some kind of toxin/virus/bacteria that formed in another human-gone-zombie due to being a zombie.
    I know the differences between 4 and 5 are probably slight, if even existant at all, but it’s just there to demonstrate that some biological processes have to be different with all those variables.
    (And if 4 and 5 have differences, we’d probably never see those, since 99.9999% of the literally billions of zombies are probably turned by other zombies, not TFZ.)
    Bottom line: Clearly, whatever is in a vampire’s bite that turns you in to one (and I know it takes a pint of blood to finish that, but whatever) is NOT what’s in a zombie’s bite.

  43. Steve Says:

    I just discovered this comic today (from a friend) and read from page one to here. I was SO shocked to realize this is the current page… sad that the “Next” button that’s worked for the last 4 hours is no longer there!! Can’t wait for the next installment, I’m now hit with the suspence of waiting.
    Bobby – Great comic! and Owen – great artwork!
    I am finding it a little rediculous the confusions people are having about TFZ. Maybe it’s just easy for me because I read the whole thing to this point in one day? Anyways, there is only one TFZ … how could there be two? It is April’s grandfather (as far as we know from the info so far in the story) and Bobby & Owen, don’t worry, TFZ is VERY recognizable in the frame of him on the roof. The bullet wound in the head, the uniform, and the half head of hair combed over… he is unique looking and identifiable.
    Great work guys! As a writer (and hobbiest filmmaker) I am following along with your story and provided character information easily. I’ve developed a lot of knowledge about film and story, and just want to let you know you’re doing great with revealing new twists and info that builds on itself and doesn’t cause confusion.
    CAN’T WAIT to see the conclusion! I know there are a few more unexpected twists to come.

  44. Bobby Crosby Says:

    “Well, April isn’t TFZs granddaughter, right?
    He said: ‘… JUST BECAUSE
    A GRANDDAUGHTER HE’S NEVER MET
    ASKS HIM TO?’ ”

    How the hell does that make him wrong? He’s talking about WHAT MATH’S PLAN IS, what MATH IS THINKING, not what reality is. Addison Payne is never wrong.

    “And payne still thinks there is just 1 First Zombie, not 2.”

    We don’t know that at all. He could definitely know about absolutely everything, but he acted like he didn’t just to fire up the troops and get them fighting as best they can.

    “Also, I took it that the zombie thrown in the dumpster by Murdo and Grady was TFZ.”

    That’s another thing I wanted to be obvious, and I confirmed it many many times in the comments.

    “Because if TFZ was the one that Murdo and Grady threw in the dumpster, he was already wearing the uniform … and why would he ever bother changing it? Blood? Smell? Why would he care? He’s animated rotting flesh”

    You read “It’s his,” but didn’t read the very next sentence where I said “Decided to wear it for his big victory night, makes him feel more like he’s doing something honorable and right”? Why would he care? He’s just animated rotting flesh? Huh? Nonsense crazy talk. This entire thing is something he cares about more than anyone has ever cared about anything possibly. He intentionally went through 65 years of the worst torture ever just for the chance to carry out this plan.

    “When April threatened to shove a stick through Math in the beginning of the comic (page 24), she could have killed him right?”

    Correct, and it was my intention to see that same stick again on Page 70, and we’ll see it again shortly. That’s something that will come off a lot better in the movie.

    “Hey Anko, April is indeed TFZ’s granddaughter, remember? Can’t remember what page exactly, but Math was asking who Sullivan Davis was, and it was her grandpa who fouhgt in WWII and died. He’s the TFZ.”

    Ugh, no, that’s incorrect, as I’ve said many many times, including very recently.

    “Is he on the roof of the Davis farm though, or on another roof?”

    Roof of Davis farm.

    “Don’t worry about people not recognizing TFZ Bobby”

    Um, if people can’t understand shit in the comic, that greatly reduces the chances of a movie ever being made obviously.

    “exposed chest with dog tags and the messed-up hair.”

    I actually didn’t want that in the first several pages — the exposed chest and ripped up uniform and such. Wanted it to look nice, but didn’t specify it well enough in the script. He was sealed tight in a coffin and then didn’t move for 65 years. I don’t know much about how that might affect his clothing, but I don’t think it would affect it much.

    “I almost groaned and actually kept reading because I had a craving for a cheesy story.”

    Yeah, this story absolutely sucked in the first 45 pages or so. I did a horrible job. I groan and cringe every time I have to think about the early pages. The last 45 pages have been somewhere around 3,000 times better than the first 45 pages in every way.

    “Also I CERTAINLY wish Addison F. Payne (really, even I cannot help thinking of him as that anymore) was wrong when he said he will spend eternity locked up in a cell”

    Again, he’s saying anything he can to fire up his troops and he didn’t specifically say that that’s what would definitely happen — it’s simply what would happen if he did get locked up. Someone can be never wrong and LIE about things that are wrong.

    “Vampires are created when a human is biten by a vampire”

    LOL — did you read Page 82? No, that is not how vampires are created. Read Page 82. First you have to have your blood drained to the point of killing you (not just a BITE), then you need to drink a pint of someone else’s blood after you come back to life before you turn into a vampire. Probably some other qualifiers to that as well.

    “The First Zombie is a blood starved vampire”

    The First Zombie is something all to himself, totally different from a regular zombie or a regular vampire. You can’t just act like he’s officially a vampire.

  45. Dirge Says:

    TFZ looks damn creepy…. I mean he has that wicked smile and all…. Great page! Great Comic!

  46. Teardropcatcher Says:

    Great page, love the way TFZ looks as he’s pointing that big projectile launcher at the car. Seems very pleased of himself. It makes me wonder… Why did he pretend he was dead when Murdo shot him during the first pages? I donno if it was in the comments, sorry if I missed it… TFZ sorto f reminds me of the classic American boy who’s had a hard life, but lives a happy ending, donno why. Makes me feel sorry for him =/.

    Addison Payne is never wrong. Fitting title for such a page. I hope Math’s ok and whatever was in that note Payne gave to Devian, I hope it won’t be necessary to carry it on. Can’t wait for the next page!! Great job you guys

  47. Bobby Crosby Says:

    “Why did he pretend he was dead when Murdo shot him during the first pages?”

    To get closer to his grandson Murdo and the last humans in general from his old hometown and see what they’re like, see what they’re talking about. He does not have super hearing. It was also a big moment when he allowed himself to be shot in the head. He did not know for sure that he’d survive it. He was emotional at the time and was considering actually giving up his plan and letting himself die, figuring that the vampires would die out anyway from this because there weren’t enough humans for repopulation. He knew that he had 20 million zombies surrounding the 200 in Mexico who would get in eventually and that the ones in Canada were already dead. He was watching his grandson pick off these zombies around him with perfect head shots and he decided that he didn’t care if the bullet to the brain killed him (various reasons).

    “Anyways, there is only one TFZ … how could there be two?”

    Ha, now I feel better as a storyteller. This ending will be a cool shock to people who haven’t been spoiled apparently.

    “I know there are a few more unexpected twists to come.”

    For you at least there are, yes!

  48. Xantalus Says:

    Well as far as i understood the whole thing, TFZ was a human who was forced to become a vampire.
    Out of hatred for the Vamps he locked himself up to transform.
    An here it the point that makes me curious.
    Since HE treasured his Human life why in the world is he turning all humans on the earth into zombies?
    Jealousy because they are still human?
    just for his plan to corner the Vamps?
    or does he have other reasons to do so?

    and last but not least thank you for creating such a nice entertaining and awesome comic.
    Keep up the good work.

  49. Austin W Says:

    ya,this is a great comic. ill admit,took me about 5 minutes to figure out it was tfz,but i love this comic.

  50. Bobby Crosby Says:

    “TFZ was a human who was forced to become a vampire.”

    I think I might have said that before, but that was NEVER even close to the full reason why he did this (at most it would be 5% of it, but it might now be 0% of it). Read through previous comments (or Google it) for the answers to all your questions, or just wait 12 pages and all your questions will have been answered by the comic itself.

  51. Endless Says:

    TFZ looks a little silly in a perfectly starched uniform. But I’m sure it will look a lot coller in closeups.

    On the creation of a vampire:

    When a person is drained of almost all their blood, why do they come back? Or is it one of those, “they just do” things.

  52. Bobby Crosby Says:

    It’s not almost all their blood — it’s just enough to kill them, as I’ve said several times, which is probably a similar amount that they then need to drink to stop the pain (a pint), although I don’t know. And I don’t understand the question. It’s basically like asking why a person becomes a zombie after being bitten by a zombie. “They just do,” yes.

  53. Necavi D. Omnes Says:

    Bobby, I apologize that people have to ask who this zombie is. I’d give you a hug if I could stand giving them.

    `Neca

  54. KayRis Says:

    Gah, I feel like an idiot for asking this, but are Murdo and April cousins? Because somehow I have it in my mind that they’re both related to TFZ but they could be related to two different TFZs. Sorry for the stupid question but I’m pretty confused.

  55. Bobby Crosby Says:

    Related to two different TFZs, yes, not related to each other.

  56. Jesse Says:

    Bobby, I just finished reading all of your comments. All of them.
    If I missed any, it MAY have been in the first ten pages or so, but other than that, I read ALL OF THEM (and it took a bit longer than that estimate of 40 minutes, sir).
    People, it is possible to do that. And I’m pretty sure this hasn’t been asked:
    I think you mentioned there was a point at which our TFZ stopped being a blood-starved vampire and started being a TFZ (“a the first zombie”…what bad grammar on my part). And darned if I’m gonna go back and find where that was. But I’m wondering, does the pain stop at that point for TFZ? Or even if the “hunger pains x 1000″ stop, is TFZ in hideous pain at all times due to decomposition?

  57. Bobby Crosby Says:

    Hey, it’s actually possible that hasn’t been asked — nice job! LOL. Anyway, the pains stop, yes. If they didn’t stop, then Addison would talk about ENDLESS torture as opposed to “only” 65 years of torture. No pain at all.

  58. Jesse Says:

    Oh, and how are they gonna repopulate the earth?
    ;)

  59. Jesse Says:

    that’s supposed to be a wink, as in, “Just kidding.”

  60. Vib Says:

    Here is a Q for you bobby (only went 30 or so pages back sorry if its been asked….)

    Why does Addison look so…. bony? as in why do so many of his bones stick out of his skin…. (mostly facial from what I can see)

  61. Bobby Crosby Says:

    That’s all Owen.

  62. Aquamage Says:

    I love how TFZ is thrown into the picture holding an RPG, That is just badass.

    I’m not sure if anyone has brought this up from the previous pages and I’m sorry if they have, but when pain stabs a sword through himself to demonstrate how they are almost indestructable. Would having there head cut off also kill them? and if so could exploding them with i dont know an RPG kill them as well? Just the thought of their bodies exploding…

  63. Bobby Crosby Says:

    Read the Page 89 comments for the many times I answered those questions.

  64. Paul Cowan Says:

    I love that he’s holding the gun sight up to his empty skull. :)

  65. D.B. Says:

    I’m thinking, (and i hope this wasnt already covered), that the two TFZ’s are gonna have a showdown, ya know? one takes control of half the horde and starts a huge zombie v zombie brawl with him and the other TFZ going at it in the middle

  66. Bobby Crosby Says:

    Already covered many times on multiple levels (it’s not happening).

  67. Ek Says:

    I can’t wait for this story to get deeper into the plot. I feel as if we’re being teased. Well.. maybe not the plot.. moreso the denument. Grats though thus far. Awaiting the next update… however.. not patiently enough.

    ~Ek

  68. Narfen Says:

    ohh… the punker is gonna get his hair all messed up..

    I cant help thinking of TFZ as some kinda neat dressed buisnessman?

    Kneeling there in his newly ironed uniform.. with a rpg.. but still.. I bet his mom would be proud of him, all cleaned up and ready to destroy the world in style. he just looks.. neat.. in some way.

    He is kickass besides that.. no wonder human is on the brink of destruction ( well sorta already destroyed )

  69. Frank Says:

    If vampires can only be killed by a stake through the heart, and zombies are blood-starved vampires, how come cutting their head off kills them?

  70. Kiril Says:

    Man, I am so going to incorporate this into my Vampire the Requiem campaign. Somehow I will. The comic is just otherworldly awesome.

  71. Bumtown Says:

    So here’s a logistical thing I don’t think anyone has brought up yet.

    The two TFZs have been locked away for the last 65 years being tortured by lack of blood.

    How does he know how to fire a modern RPG, anyway? I imagine it takes SOME know-how to operate.

  72. Dan Says:

    I pretty much have a hang of the story, but then again I might be wrong.

    So from what I am understanding we have two TFZ.

    The zombie Murdo threw in the dumpster is his grandfather (Aprils grandfather as well???l) and the one controlling ALL the zombies on the planet and we have no seen the second TFZ or is it the other way around?

  73. Gunstar Says:

    Keep in mind with the “some people don’t recognize TFZ” thing…

    A – When it happens in the confines of a 2 hour movie, the separation won’t be as bad as in a multi week/month comic.

    B – In full living color acting/animation TFZ will probably stand out more than in a black and white comic.

    C – Some people just aren’t that quick on the uptake.

    I read the whole comic up to date yesterday (saw the link on Real Life Comics, I thank you) and in one sitting it’s pretty obvious who TFZ is… unless you’re setting up for a swerve… but I gotta wonder what led to him getting gunned down at the beginning, and if that couldn’t stop him, why did he let himself get dumpstered?? It doesn’t seem like he’d be dumb enough to just walk into town, and I guess he wouldn’t want to tip his hat so he played dead/undead/redead, but I’d think (knowing what we do now) he woulda been smarter than that!

  74. Anko Says:

    “The zombie Murdo threw in the dumpster is his grandfather (Aprils grandfather as well???l) and the one controlling ALL the zombies on the planet and we have no seen the second TFZ or is it the other way around?”

    That was Murdo’s grandfather and yes, he controls almost of the zombies. The other schaemiac, Sullivan Davis, is April’s grandfather. He went through the torture to stop Murdo’s grandfather and he is controlling the 3000 zombies that are running.

  75. Gunstar Says:

    Hmmmm… I don’t think so.

    There is only 1 TFZ, note the bullet hole… unless I missed something big!! But I’ve seen…

    …WW2 vamp/zombie guy, (Davis) comes from the sea, chows down, comes home, gets shot and dumpstered, crawls out, takes care, changes clothes, takes care of business.

    2 TFZ’s would be cool tho, then we could have a zombie civil war with humans and vamps caught in the middle. =)

  77. Bobby Crosby Says:

    I’m starting to think at least half of “Last Blood” readers just have no brain in their head. Seriously, it’s crazy.

    “If vampires can only be killed by a stake through the heart, and zombies are blood-starved vampires, how come cutting their head off kills them?”

    I mean, who the hell is stupid enough to think that? And yet this is maybe the 30th time I’ve heard this. You seriously think that the 200 humans in Mexico (who were just killed) and the 35 or so humans who started the story alive at the school here were the ONLY 235 HUMANS ON EARTH BEFORE THE ZOMBIE OUTBREAK STARTED AND THAT THE REST OF THE WORLD WAS MADE UP OF ALMOST SEVEN BILLION VAMPIRES? Gonna make my brain explode. Once again, ONLY THE FIRST ZOMBIE WAS EVER A VAMPIRE. I answer this on almost every damn page lately. Seriously, just read the fucking comic. If you can’t understand it, you have no brain. And sorry, Frank, I know you didn’t act like a jerk here or anything, but it’s just painful when people somehow think there’s some sort of error or confusing thing when there’s seriously nothing confusing about it to anyone who has any reading comprehension whatsoever. This paragraph is mostly in response to people other than you, some of which act like jerks and like they’re definitely right that I’ve made some huge error because they SOMEHOW think it was a world full of vampires instead of humans a month ago. It just makes NO SENSE. Once again, all of the humans who The First Zombie turned into zombies are just REGULAR ZOMBIES AND HAVE ABSOLUTELY NOTHING TO DO WITH VAMPIRES, NOTHING.

    “How does he know how to fire a modern RPG, anyway? I imagine it takes SOME know-how to operate.”

    No, it’s insanely easy, especially for someone who fired large weapons in World War II.

    “The zombie Murdo threw in the dumpster is his grandfather (Aprils grandfather as well???l) and the one controlling ALL the zombies on the planet and we have no seen the second TFZ or is it the other way around?”

    Evil TFZ is Murdo’s great grandpa, was shot and thrown into dumpster by Murdo, and he controls almost every zombie on the planet. The other First Zombie is Sullivan Davis, April’s grandpa, Evil TFZ’s old best friend, and he controls the 3,000 or so that are coming from the West. Obviously more detail on this coming up soon in the comic.

    “but I gotta wonder what led to him getting gunned down at the beginning, and if that couldn’t stop him, why did he let himself get dumpstered??”

    Um, didn’t I answer that on THIS comments page? If not, it was on the previous page. Answered it in detail. Would take you two seconds to find it.

    “but I’d think (knowing what we do now) he woulda been smarter than that!”

    Ugh.

    “That was Murdo’s grandfather and yes, he controls almost of the zombies. The other schaemiac, Sullivan Davis, is April’s grandfather. He went through the torture to stop Murdo’s grandfather and he is controlling the 3000 zombies that are running.”

    Finally someone with a brain. This is all correct, except it’s Murdo’s great grandpa, not his grandpa. I may have accidentally said it was his grandpa at some point recently, but it’s actually his great grandpa. Anyway, doesn’t matter.

    “There is only 1 TFZ, note the bullet hole… unless I missed something big!!”

    Hopefully people like you will make me rich. (That’s not an insult or anything — glad that I’ve totally tricked some people with the story.)

    “WW2 vamp/zombie guy, (Davis) comes from the sea”

    That wasn’t Davis.

  78. Bet45 Says:

    Well this is my first time leaven a comment so exellent comic Mr. Crosby can not wait until the movie. About the rpg question it looks to be either a russian design or maybe a chinese copy either way most soviet weapons were designed for simplicty in its operation so learning to fire a rpg is no brainer.

    Thanks, buddy.

    “I’m starting to think at least half of “Last Blood” readers just have no brain in their head. Seriously, it’s crazy.”

    It seems zombies actually do exist. I admire your nerve so far, Bobby. If I was in your position, with all the ignorant comments, I would have given up replying ages ago, or disabled commenting. Or stopped updating the comic. Or something like that. So kudos to you. ;)

    New page coming soon, by any chance?

  82. Bobby Crosby Says:

    Don’t know. Sent Owen the script and sketch 21 hours ago. Expecting it today, I guess. Then five pages next week hopefully.

  83. Zaldaran Says:

    so how far behind on the whole zombie thing is good TFZ? i’m guessing that since he became one to stop his friend he did it later than evil TFZ. him only having 3000 of his own minons is what got me wondering.

  84. Jeff Says:

    I have a quick question about TFZ and Sullivan Davis, how much of an age difference between the two men is there? I know that Val turned both of them into vampires for the war effort and that they were best friends. I’m wondering if it was more like a father/son type friendship seeing as how we now know that TFZ was Murdo’s GREAT grandfather and that Sullivan Davis is only April’s grandfather.

  85. Bobby Crosby Says:

    No age difference — same age.

    “so how far behind on the whole zombie thing is good TFZ?”

    About three days, which he didn’t realize would make him almost too late to do anything at all, but Evil TFZ did his job well in spreading the outbreak very quickly and all over the place.

  86. Bobbbo Says:

    4-1/2-1/2 things to say…

    1. Been reading this comic for awhile, and it is probably the best Zombie/Vampire/HumanExtinction/Etc. comic I’ve read in a while.

    2. Although half of the story is revealed in the comments section and not actually in the comic itself.

    3. But, those anticipation destroying, Patience quenching comments provides lots of info on the comic and clarifies alot of other things(usually).

    4. And if this ever makes it into a movie, I will be the first person there watching millions of Zombies getting slaughtered, impaled, stabbed, crushed, decapitated, and torn to peices,…, as well as their heads getting thrown into basketball hoops.

    4-1/2. even if the movie will probably be relatively low budget (hopefully not!).

    4-1/2 and a half. Again, awesome comic.

  87. Bobby Crosby Says:

    “Although half of the story is revealed in the comments section and not actually in the comic itself.”

    THE COMIC IS NOT OVER YET. Everything of importance will be revealed in the comic itself obviously.

    “Again, awesome comic.”

    Glad you like it.

    if somebody told me they’d be willing to kill 6 billion people to get back at me, i wouldn’t have believed them till i read this comic.

    I was kinda expecting the first zombie to be a bit more suave like vampires, but he seems like a really intelligent normal zombie

  90. Lord Klingsor Says:

    Thank you for answering my question.

  91. Moredread Says:

    I know that this is not important for the plot of the story, but I’m curious about how the population of vampires has risen and fallen during history in the context of this story. I read in the comments that during the Bulgarian outbreak the number of vampires (possibly) was greater, and it seems that the number of Vampires were created during WW2 to fight mainly on the allies side, so my question is why did it fall down to 50 (I belive that is what I read as being about the current number). Did a lot of them commit suicide because they did not want to continue living as vampires, or did it fall because of some external action, such as vampire hunters; I doubt this however because the vampires very tough, and not disruptive to society at large and are trying to help mankind.

  92. Moredread Says:

    Also I should have taken the warning about not reading the comment section.

  93. Lord Klingsor Says:

    Also. Of course what I said was illogical. Addison “F.” Payne is a raisonneur. He can NEVER EVER be wrong, I should have known that on my own…
    Anyway, I admire him very, very much.

  94. Lex Says:

    Sorry if this was pointed out, trying not to read giveaways. Tho I always skip forwards thru mediocre books or good books. Really good reads, I try to control myself, ie; this comic rules.

    Ok, so a WW veteran zombie sitting on the roof of his old house, firing RPG shots off at anything fleeing. How many people asked how he got the uniform? Well, kiddies, that’d be a familly heirloom he fished out of a closet in a room that hasn’t been occupied for 65, 70 years.

    The frikkin bone he’s gnawing on looks pretty new. Where did he find [i]that[/i] toy?

  95. Lex Says:

  96. Cookie Says:

    Great comic, cant help but read the comments for spoilers.. agree with whoever said this is the best zombie/vampire/everyone dies comic ive red in a while!

    lol @ some of these comments.. dude just ignore them haha..

    I think some people didnt realise the TFZ was the guy shooting the rocket because it was a bit.. anti-climactic. I realised rocket boy was TFZ but i expected something a bit scarrier and .. sinister then a smiling zombie shooting a rocket in some clean clothes o_O. hehe..

    Some one asked how the TFZ would know how to operate and RPG

    The RPG is second only to the AK-47 in simplicity of use. It’s used widely in revolts and insurgencies because untrained personel can use and fire them with ease.

  102. Dart08 Says:

    I hav been reading the comments for a couple of days now and there is this one question that i think hasnt been answered yet.
    if a vampire gets bitten by a zombie, would he turn into a zombie as well? like regular people, i mean. Or are they unaffected?

  103. Bobby Crosby Says:

    LOL, what the hell. That’s been asked more than almost any other question. Literally been asked at least 35 times. The answer is that of course nothing happens.

  104. Anko Says:

    Wow, I just realized: if the outbreak started on the 29th of September, and the vampires arrived exactly a month after that, that means if all of this actually happened they would be arriving tomorrow.

  105. Blakut Says:

    The RPG missile a rocket. The part shown in the comic is just the warhead, the complete missile also has a long rod attached to the back of the warhead (from wich hot gases shoot out), like in this picture: [url]http://www.store-rooms.com/imgs/product/sku153.jpg[/url]

  110. Bobby Crosby Says:

    It’s dark out and vampires are so used to smelling the presence of living things by their blood that it’s hard for them to even consider something being alive when they don’t smell the blood — like they’d just dismiss it as a mannequin or something — their brain would reject it, even while talking about how he can’t be smelled. Anyway, it’s dark and they’re fairly far away and it would be hard to see something that’s not moving.

    Hey, Bobby, I’m a busy guy, so I can’t volunteer to be a zombie or vampire in your movie, but if you need several pints of blood at short notice, I’ll gladly squirt a few into Gatorade bottles for you and send it your way, okay?

  113. Jesse Says:

    Uh…is “Bobby Crosbys” a typo, or is someone on here actually trying to pretend to be Bobby Crosby?

  115. Lokum Says:

    So sullivan davis turned 3000 for his personal army against EFZ. Did he just like pick 3000 of anyone he saw, or like the TFZ who systematically wiped out the humans, did Davis choose really strong/smart humans?

  116. Bobby Crosby Says:

    Weren’t enough left and there wasn’t enough time to pick and choose, for the most part.

  117. WolfPatch Says:

    Ok, I started reading the comic and reading as many comments as I could stomach from page one yesterday.
    It was a rough start with some fairly cut-and-dry dialogue… but, it has really come around and I can’t wait for the next page!
    Your scripting and Owen’s artwork are improving constantly. I’ve been even more interested since the introduction of Rage (I love Rage) and the infamous Addison Payne. Also, I’m really, really sorry that a vast majority of your fan base seems to have the same intelligence level as a ravenous horde of zombies… (Either that, or the memory span of a goldfish.) I swear, 95% of the comments made are the same redundant questions over and over again. If these people could just take the time to comprehend what they are looking at for a little while, you wouldn’t have to put up with so much drivel.

    Like this winner here:

    KamakaizSparow Says:

    Hmm… Huge amount of vamps created in WWII for alies… Math killed Hitler… Is he one of them? (Math, I mean)

    To answer:

    Math indicates on several occasions (shortly after he is introduced to the story), that he is at least one hundred years old. WWII occurred between the years of 1939 and 1945… that would put the start of the war at 68 years ago. So, even if the vampires had seen the war coming a decade in advance, Math is still too old to have been turned to add to the Allied Forces.

    Seriously, is it so difficult to remember facts of a story that you claim to have an interest in?

    Anyways, I’ve turned this into too much of a rant… In closing, big fan, can’t wait for more, wish you had smarter fans, bye bye.

  118. Brandon Says:

    Well i’m most likely wrong or this is a huge error in my post but i’ve only read all the comments on this page and the whole comic up today. This post was a good idea to me at the time.

    From the looks of it TFZ has some grand plan in motion as we all can see. His thinking means he has a motive so could it be that he’s trying to save the humans from the vampires in a diffrent way? Think about it, the vampires could have developed a cure to save mankind but as long as TFZ walks the earth the cure is pointless. So the vampires simply want TFZ dead so they can resume using humans for blood as they did before. TFZ’s plan could be to lock up the vampires/ kill them and use Payne’s cure after he stops all the vampires on earth.

    This is just my 2cents and I know you guys ( and me when i read some more comments) will find some errors or disproofs to it. But I commented becaues this felt like a good idea at the time. Tell me what you think about it.

  119. Daniel Rahn Says:

    Ever consider switching from, “the first zombie,” to something like, ” zombie lord?” I figure it’s easier to deal with than treating every patient zero with the same name which implies singularity. Not that it’s actually important, but I figured I’d throw in my two cents.

  120. Anko Says:

    “Ever consider switching from, “the first zombie,” to something like, ” zombie lord?” ”

    If I remember correctly, that’s why Bobby came up with the term schaemiac. The only problem is that people are often unable to spell it.

  121. Cookie Says:

    “The only problem is that people are often unable to spell it”

    that is abso-fuckin-lutley correct -.-”

    schaemiac certainly sounds cool though..

  122. John Says:

    “Evil TFZ is Murdo’s great grandpa, was shot and thrown into dumpster by Murdo, and he controls almost every zombie on the planet. The other First Zombie is Sullivan Davis, April’s grandpa, Evil TFZ’s old best friend, and he controls the 3,000 or so that are coming from the West. Obviously more detail on this coming up soon in the comic.”

    Bobby, AWESOME plot twist. You are indeed a great storyteller. I loved the comic before but NOW its gotten that much better.

  123. Jesse Says:

    Brandon, I like people who don’t read the comments all the way back, because they’re a great test to see how hard it is to see the twists coming in his story without reading spoilers. I’ve read all the spoilers, but even if I hadn’t…what cure could fix having your body rotting and devoid of most vital fluids?

  124. Ian Lee V Says:

    yeah we should be receiving the comics on Halloween Day, and im going to make it the comic of the month for November, but i get to keep the retailer incentive sketch cover. Ha. Great development in the story guys. Keep up the good work.

  125. Lan Says:

    Jesse: it doesnt have to be a cure, just something that keeps them really dead versus being zombies. But anyways, I don’t remember that as being what the ‘cure’ actually does. I remember reading something about turning vampires back into humans (I’m one of those with a bad memory, so not too sure) but that could have been another speculative post.

  126. Andrius Says:

    Sorry if this has been asked (jeez that seems to be a common opener)

    It seems that the gunshot wound Murdoc gave to EFZ did not heal. Regular vamps heal wounds asap. Could a schaemiac regain their vampire abilities with access to human blood since that’s what drives vamp energy? Although its only been a relatively short time since the EFZ could have had access to it (since Canada/Mexico). So probably not with the time frame and the recurring theme of transformation, but it could make for one hell of a problem if the EFZ gets his hands on some.

    Just wondering, feel free to curse me to a thousand deaths if this is a recurring idiotic comment. Read through the entire thing today and this is the first comment page I’ve read.

  127. Andrius Says:

    Oh crap!

    Forgot to say great job by the way! I’m totally hooked

  128. Pablo618 Says:

    a couple of days ago I was reading the comic again and just then I understood why a zombie entered the gym and transform jimmy on a zombie without being noticed, he was TFZ! (I am talking about the first comics)

  129. Anko Says:

    “TFZ’s plan could be to lock up the vampires/ kill them and use Payne’s cure after he stops all the vampires on earth.”

    Actually, if I understood correctly, TFZ’s plan is to make all of the vampires go through the same torture as he did so killing them would defeat the purpose. After the 65 years, Bobby said that TFZ might kill them all before killing himself. And the cure is actually a cure for vampirism. It can turn the vampires (except for the ones that were born vampires) back into humans, but it doesn’t really come into play anytime soon, as the case will only be opened on the last page.

    “a couple of days ago I was reading the comic again and just then I understood why a zombie entered the gym and transform jimmy on a zombie without being noticed, he was TFZ! (I am talking about the first comics) ”

    Actually, that wasn’t TFZ. That was just one of the regular zombies that TFZ instructed to kidnap Val. And he was seen in the act of biting Jimmy in the neck by at least one person: Mustache Man.

  130. Chris Says:

    “I’ve read all the spoilers, but even if I hadn’t…what cure could fix having your body rotting and devoid of most vital fluids?”

    One heck of a enema!

  131. Steve Says:

    Bobby, I made a comment a little ways up on the page, encouraging you to not be frusterated with all these people that have a a hard time following a storyline that reserves some suprizes for the end. Your story is well structured and leads the reader along perfectly with need to know information fed at proper moments. As you would have read in my comment… I thought there was only one TFZ! I haven’t read any comments, and seeing how they’re mostly filled with spoilers (and stupidity) I guess it was for good reason. The only reason I commented above was because I saw your frusteration in some comments, so I wanted to encourage you as a fellow writer… now I wish I never looked at these damn comments!! At this point in the story, you wanted your reader/viewer to think there was only one TFZ!! It works perfectly, because I didn’t know there were two! Now one of the major ending twists is ruined for me!! I just wanted to comment on that… you got me. Good work Bobby… perhaps I can return the favor someday when you’re reading something I wrote or watching a short film I’ve done (likely not though…)
    Great thinking on your story and it’s a wonderful piece of original work. Can’t wait to see the final pages. Oh, and for my own good… and for the sake of following your story as intended… I won’t be reading the comments anymore. It’ll be good for the both of us! Questions should be reserved for the end of a work :)

  132. Kenny C. Says:

    As much as I hate spoilers, I have been reading the comments, despite the big warnings at the top. I have to say, even with the few spoilers that I haven’t already assumed myself, this whole concept is cool enough for me to just consider the comments as part of the story. Oh, just one thing. We’re calling the two fist zombies Good TFZ and Evil TFZ (brain conveniently ignoring that even though one is a first zombie he is in fact a second first zombie, and that even the first first zombie isn’t the first first zombie, since there was that one back in, like, Bulemia or whatever, so he’d be the first first zombie, making these two the second first zombie, and the second second first zombie, but whatever.)

    Well, “Good” TFZ did kinda bite, infect, and for all intents and purposes, murder 3000 people, either directly or indirectly through his recent “converts.” So just for accuracy’s sake, who wants to start calling them Evil TFZ and Significantly Less Evil Though Still Pretty Bad By Ordinary Standards TFZ. Just an idea. And yeah Schaemiac is tough to spell. I’m not even sure if I got it right there.

    At any rate, this is an awesome story, and I really hope that the movie plan works out, because it’s at least 20x as entertaining as the shit that gets put out today. I’d tell you how many more times intelligent it is, but any multiplicative increase of 0 is still 0, you know? Linking different undead classifications is cool. Just don’t swing it around that if a vampire forgets to shave for a century he becomes a werewolf or something.

  133. Jesse Says:

    Bobby, just wondering: since you post your AIM name on your contact info, and have listed it at least once in the comments, has anyone you’ve never met ever bothered you by just randomly IMing you? Just wondering, because it seems like something that would make me nervous–I’ve actually added you to my buddy list, but I’m afraid I’m gonna IM you and you’re going to dispatch a zombie army to have me torn to shreds…

  134. Amy Says:

    Jesse: Don’t worry about Bobby sending a zombie army after you. I IMed him one time and I’ve had no problems.

    “No, it’s insanely easy, especially for someone who fired large weapons in World War II.”

    Aside from the almost entirely different manual of arms between a bazooka and a modern recoilless rifle or rocket launcher, there’s the fact that you’ve called this guy a “high-ranking officer”. There’s no reason for a high-ranking officer to have fired any heavy weaponry in anger. It’s not their job. Maybe if he was on the Army Ordnance Board, but then he’d be a stateside puke with little or no experience in-theater.

  136. lakorp Says:

  138. Bobby Crosby Says:

    LOL at manwhat. You have no clue what you’re talking about, and why did you add “in anger” to what I said? There’s somewhere around a trillion possible reasons for why anyone of any classification might fire a big gun at some point in their lives (like maybe just for FUN, in a non-war situation, just trying it out), but keep in mind, as many others have pointed out, it’s extremely easy to fire an RPG, and why do the morons who act like that could possibly be a problem not understand that TFZ OWNS THE FUCKING WORLD and could have read all the instruction manuals and seen multiple instructional DVDs and this could be and probably is at least the 20th time in the past few weeks that he’s fired such a weapon. It’s one of the stupidest things anyone could ever say to make it sound like he couldn’t fire this weapon.

    Is that like a raisinette? Those things are awesome.

  140. ocean Says:

    ok, a couple of questions. i’m hoping they haven’t been answered, but hey i’m running the gauntlet.

    who would win in a tangle, between TFZ and AFP? i mean, addison seems pretty generally badass but then i was wondering if being a schaemiac makes you actually a lot better than a vampire. actually i should probably just have asked you that.

    aaand how is chris involved in this? i was just wondering, since it seems that you write Last Blood and Owen draws it, year Chris Cosby is mentioned on the front page. did you and your brother just come up with concept together or is he still in the mix?

  141. Bobby Crosby Says:

    “who would win in a tangle, between TFZ and AFP?”

    One on one, locked in a room, Addison kicks TFZ’s ass. The trouble is getting TFZ into that situation, since he has no reason to risk it.

    “aaand how is chris involved in this?”

    We were brainstorming, trying to think of an idea for a movie we could film at the school, and we don’t remember exactly who said what, but we came up with the basic concept of vampires protecting humans from zombies to live off their blood. About 94% of everything past that has been my creation, like The First Zombie and how that works and everything, with the exception of various suggestions here and there by Chris and Owen (and probably other people, like from comments on this site). Chris also letters the comic. Rage came about because we needed some WOWIO-exclusives and I asked Owen to draw a couple cool looking vampires and he came up with Rage, although Chris thought of the name and also the wrestler backstory, as I recall. Chris also suggested Rage’s response of “Good” after Addison said the plane crash would hurt, and I’ve followed up on that by having Rage love pain. Owen strongly suggested early on that we kill a kid, which led to Jimmy’s death. Various other things as well.

  142. manwhat Says:

    “There’s somewhere around a trillion possible reasons for why anyone of any classification might fire a big gun at some point in their lives (like maybe just for FUN, in a non-war situation, just trying it out)”

    Because being sealed in a coffin leaves so much time for this sort of thing.

    “could have read all the instruction manuals and seen multiple instructional DVDs and this could be and probably is at least the 20th time in the past few weeks that he’s fired such a weapon.”

    Because Joe Blow from Nineteen Fucking Forty Five knows what a DVD player is, let alone how to use one. Because people MAKE fucking instructional DVDs for RPGs.

    You’re delusional.

    For the “how did he fire a RPG?” crowd, below is a quote with the source. I never handled a RPG, but I did fire a LAW. Guess what, the instructions are printed right on the tube…….

    “But eventually I had to face the facts: most of those weapons are never going to get used. If you look at all the real wars going on right now, you come across the same two weapons, over and over: the AK-47 and the RPG-7 — both Russian designs, and both older than your Dad.

    They’re the weapons that matter, because they’re already out there, millions of units, enough to equip every guerrilla army in the world, simple enough that you can teach a peasant kid with hookworm and a room-temperature IQ to fire them, and cheap enough to buy in bulk.

    And the RPG is the best of all, even better than the Kalashnikov. This simple little beauty just keeps getting more and more effective. This cheap little dealie, nothing but a launcher tube and a few rockets shaped like two ice-cream cones glued together, has kicked our ass (and Russia’s too) all over the world since back when the Beatles were still together. In fact, more and more guerrilla armies are making the RPG their basic infantry weapon, with the AK used to protect the RPG gunners, who provide the offensive punch. The Chechens fighting the Russian Army are so high on it that they’ve switched their three-man combat teams from two riflemen and an RPG gunner to two RPG gunners with a rifleman to protect them.

    There’s another stat that’s even more important right now: the RPG has inflicted more than half — half! — of US casualties in Iraq. This is the weapon that’s hurting us. And it’s been doing that for one hell of a long time.”

    “Because being sealed in a coffin leaves so much time for this sort of thing.”

    Obviously he did this BEFORE he went in the coffin, you fucking moron.

    “Because Joe Blow from Nineteen Fucking Forty Five knows what a DVD player is, let alone how to use one.”

    Once again, he owns the fucking world and he’s been observing everything closely in the past month. He obviously had people shooting at his troops with RPGs, which is how he found them and saw how they work (insanely simple, as others have pointed out).

    “Because people MAKE fucking instructional DVDs for RPGs.”

    You’ve never seen clips of terrorist training videos before?

    I have zero doubt in my mind that any random 13-year old girl would easily be able to figure out how to fire an RPG, especially if she was essentially immortal and had no fear of death like TFZ, so what the fuck is stopping someone who had the skills to learn how to fly a plane from “learning” how to fire an RPG? People like you are so retarded, whining about nonsense shit that you have no clue about, trying to make yourself feel smart because you have no brain. There’s NO WAY you could HONESTLY think that TFZ wouldn’t be able to figure out how to fire it, but you’re just lying in an attempt to make me look bad because you can’t find anything to do so that would be honest and you hate me for some reason.

    Reminds me of the people who say that TFZ being in the military wouldn’t help him to kill all the humans, because they somehow think that’s ONE HUNDRED PERCENT of the reason for why he can do so when I point that out as one of the extra advantages he has. It’s more like 0.2 percent of the reason, which is a similar percentage for the reason why he’s able to fire an RPG. It’s just an extra little thing that makes it EXTREMELY OBVIOUS, even though it was already super obvious, that he’d have no problem what the fuck ever doing this, just like he’d obviously have no problem killing everyone on Earth with the powers he has and the army under his control.

    If your next comment doesn’t include an apology and an admission that you’re a lying piece of shit, then you’ve already made your last on this site.

    Man, if you’ve covered stuff so much and you keep on saying that’s it’s been covered in practically *every single* comment you make, why do you even answer? Just don’t answer and people will look for it themselves. Or if you’re going to answer, why don’t you just refrain from saying haughty crap like, “…like I’ve said many, many times blah blah.”

    You shouldn’t expect people to catch every single little thing that springs from your lips (I guess here it is your fingertipes). It’s a good comic, but not that good.

  147. Bobby Crosby Says:

    “Man, if you’ve covered stuff so much and you keep on saying that’s it’s been covered in practically *every single* comment you make, why do you even answer?”

    Because I’m incredibly nice to idiots like you. I’m an angel.

    “Just don’t answer and people will look for it themselves.”

    Shut the fuck up, moron. Don’t tell me what to do.

    “Or if you’re going to answer, why don’t you just refrain from saying haughty crap like, ‘…like I’ve said many, many times blah blah.’ ”

    Because I want idiots like you to realize that they can find a ton more info in previous comments to prevent them from continuing to ask more repeated questions.

    “You shouldn’t expect people to catch every single little thing that springs from your lips (I guess here it is your fingertipes).”

    No one’s expecting that, moron, and obviously I’m not expecting it, and I only act like a jerk to the fucking morons like you who act like a jerk to me, to people like manwhat.

    “It’s a good comic, but not that good.”

    What the hell does the quality of the comic have to do with this subject?

  148. Jaime Says:

    “just like he’d obviously have no problem killing everyone on Earth with the powers he has and the army under his control.”

    I know you’ve gone over this before, but it’s still not so obvious for me, considering the timespan between his first appearance and current.

    I can see the schaemiac infecting a few people, those people turning and biting more and more. Ok, that ensures spread of the zombies on populated areas quickly.
    Add to that people panicking, fighting zombies and one another – more casualties. Add the suggested nuclear war and all major civilization hubs are wiped out.

    It can get trickier when you want to wipe out people living in secluded areas with difficult access – no airplanes, maybe even no cars.
    Places like small islands and mountain tops, people live there on a normal basis and/or might have tried to escape there.

    If the schaemiac’s senses have such a long range, he might detect those people but how would he reach them? I guess he could order his zombie horde to attack them and climb every mountain or swim/walk the ocean floor to reach those isolated islands and wipe out the last survivors.
    But this takes time, more time than I think has gone by since the zombies appeared.
    As a more far fetched, but also more effective solution, the schaemiac could have taken control of a missile control station, blowing out the last survivors from range.

    My point is, this matter isn’t as simple as zombie bites+panic+nuclear war = everyone dead.
    There are scenarios where 100% wiping out the human race is very hard, I named a few.
    Exploring these scenarios could potentially be prequel material, including the lives (and deaths) of those isolated people.

    Saying that those people are dead (period.) doesn’t carry a lot of weight to the story seen in the comic so far, but it does eliminate some other alternate stories you could explore, it limits your creative options.
    I can’t understand why you often set things in stone that aren’t really that important to the immediate story development, but that could have been explored later on.

    Another example of this kind of “setting in stone” is vampires only being killed by wooden stakes in the universe of this comic.
    What the COMIC (not these comments) tells me is that vampires do get killed by a stake through the heart, but I haven’t seen them die from anything else – this doesn’t exclude other vampire killers by itself.
    Then I see a mad vampire, Rage, stabbing himself with a sword – he doesn’t die from it and concludes that only a stake would kill him (“That’s it”).
    I think it’s fair to speculate that Rage, being slightly insane, didn’t really know or care if the sword would have killed him or not – he enjoys pain, torture. Because of this, I cannot trust his character to tell me what doesn’t kill a vampire – Payne I would trust, but not Rage.
    So you had here an option of, for the pure sake of example, having Murdo die dramatically from a situation he thought he would live through because he had been told by the insane Rage that only a stake would kill him. Murdo swallows a hand grenade to save everyone, explodes, dies.
    That is no longer an option (thank God!) because you have limited yourself several times by commenting that only a stake can kill a vampire, and that’s it.

    Hope you can see this as constructive criticism btw.

    On another unrelated note, there are flames and idiots in all forums, message boards, pretty much everywhere on the internet.
    You can deal with the true flaming idiots as you can and as they deserve, but attacking people that make less intelligent comments about your work doesn’t seem fair.
    Their attention *is* gratifying your comic in at least some way, even if you wish they would better understand your work. But that’s the pain of the artist, once people see your work it’s no longer yours.

  149. Jaime Says:

    eeek didn’t realize it was that long. TLDR!

  150. Bobby Crosby Says:

    “If the schaemiac’s senses have such a long range, he might detect those people but how would he reach them?”

    LOL at constructive criticism from someone who hasn’t even read ONE PAGE of comments apparently, since on almost every single fucking page I’ve gone into detail on how TFZ flew around the fucking world in a plane to find every last person, which takes almost no time at all, directing his troops from the air with his mind when smelling out survivors and sometimes dropping them off in parachutes when need be — more often just dropping bombs. That’s maybe the 45th time I’ve said, this, and here’s another thing I’ve said 45 times –

    “What the COMIC (not these comments) tells me is that vampires do get killed by a stake through the heart, but I haven’t seen them die from anything else”

    The COMIC isn’t fucking DONE yet. As I’ve said a trillion times, everything of importance WILL BE EXPLAINED IN THE COMIC ITSELF, which is obvious to anyone who has any kind of working brain in their head, which obviously doesn’t include you. There’s a reason why the spoilers I’ve given are called SPOILERS, moron, and not EXTRA INFO THAT’S NOT IN THE COMIC. It’s SPOILERS for things that show up LATER IN THE COMIC. Obviously all of that is happening very soon, since the comic is almost done. As I’ve said a trillion times, TFZ will tell you in his own words exactly what he did and why and we’ll see flashback panels of him flying a plane and dropping bombs and so on.

    “Saying that those people are dead (period.) doesn’t carry a lot of weight to the story seen in the comic so far, but it does eliminate some other alternate stories you could explore, it limits your creative options.
    I can’t understand why you often set things in stone that aren’t really that important to the immediate story development, but that could have been explored later on.”

    LOL at you trying to act like you could conceivably realize what’s “important to the immediate story development.” You somehow don’t see that it’s imperative that absolutely everyone be dead (except the ones at the school obviously) in order for the story to be at all interesting? Vampires need human blood to live, remember? And as I’ve said and as the comic has said, they need very little blood to “survive,” so the only way any of this works properly is if they (both sides, good and bad) can know for sure that these are the last humans alive on Earth. It also obviously makes the story a lot more dramatic that way, jeez. This is the sole reason for why I made it so vampires can smell and recognize blood at great distances, because it was the best way I could come up with for dealing with the problem of the absolute need to know if there are any humans left alive and how to find them.

  151. Jaime Says:

    Thanks for that, Bobby.

    I was tempted to explain how it’s not simple to fly around the world killing people, but I can’t really be bothered.

    Thanks for making it perfectly clear to me that you are unable to continue to offer a good read, either in your comments or on the comic script.

    Enjoy the pats-in-the-back game with your fanboy base, I’m sure not interested in browsing this again, so don’t bother thanking me for my leave :)

  152. Bobby Crosby Says:

    “I was tempted to explain how it’s not simple to fly around the world killing people, but I can’t really be bothered.”

    LOL. What a fucking idiot. I 100 percent seriously could have written your reply for you and gotten it almost exactly right. You’re all so similar and so stupid, all clones of each other.

    “Enjoy the pats-in-the-back game with your fanboy base”

    HA! Yeah, that’s what I have, sure. More proof that you not only haven’t read any of the comments, but haven’t even read YOUR OWN. I doubt many other writers would have even allowed your retarded shit to be posted, and they certainly wouldn’t have allowed the nonsense manwhat said to be posted (among dozens of others like him in the past 10 months), but yeah, keep believing I’m an idiot who’s only allowing pats on the back to go through from my “fanboy base,” LOL. Kill yourself.

    “I’m sure not interested in browsing this again”

    It’s a 100 percent fact that you’ll visit this site at least five times in the next 24 hours and that you’ll read every page.

    LoL SERVED!

  155. Jeff Says:

    Okay then, change of subject. I’m pretty sure this is a new comment/question that hasn’t been brought up. Vampires obviously still have some blood in them as shown when Catilyn(?) died. Are the hunger pains that a vampire feels at all connected to the amount of blood they currently have in them? And if so is that why the pain stops after 65 years, there isn’t a drop of blood left to hurt you anymore?

  156. Jeff Says:

    Actually I’m pretty sure at least half of that has been brought up before. Please excuse my ignorance.

  157. Bobby Crosby Says:

    “Are the hunger pains that a vampire feels at all connected to the amount of blood they currently have in them? And if so is that why the pain stops after 65 years, there isn’t a drop of blood left to hurt you anymore?”

    Interesting. That’s all new actually. I hadn’t thought much about it. That would make sense, because that would be why they can’t smell TFZ — no blood in his system at all. See, now THAT’S something constructive, people. Something that hasn’t been asked before and was said in a nice, constructive manner, as opposed to assholes like Jaime who act like I’ve made many huge mistakes, like I’m Gob Bluth or something. Also take note of the fact that Jeff used QUESTION MARKS as opposed to simply stating incorrect shit as facts like almost everyone else here does. He also said something SMART that MAKES SENSE. Thanks, buddy — gonna put that in my notes and play around with the specifics of it. Probably won’t be explained in the first graphic novel, but it probably would for the possible sequels.

  158. Brandon Says:

    Hey Bobby I love that you keep biting back at all the morons posting the same questions over and over. Your the writers so no one else should have a real authority over your work and other various notes. Thanks for taking all this BS with a grain of salt. Keep up the good work.

    Plus I was wondering if you were planning on changing the web site at all? To stop half the nonsense and bull. Just wondering if you have future plans for the site.

  159. Snake Says:

    if that is the case could TFZ give them like blood tranfusions to prolong their pain and suffering

  160. Bobby Crosby Says:

    Another interesting point — good thinking. Yeah, maybe he has plans to torture them forever (obviously won’t come into play, but maybe that could be speculated on in a sequel as well when the whole situation might be discussed in more detail).

    “Plus I was wondering if you were planning on changing the web site at all?”

    No.

  161. Wildfire393 Says:

    “if that is the case could TFZ give them like blood tranfusions to prolong their pain and suffering ”

    That’s actually a interesting question. From the way things have been described, if he was willing to risk re-empowering the vampires, he could give them blood to stop the schaemiac process, only to let it start again and prolong the torture. However, if there are no more humans, there is no blood (kind of the premise of the comic). Unless we assume that TFZ has stockpiled all of the transfusion blood from hospitals around the world. But even that has a limited supply (and, I think, an expiration date).

    Just what I think. I guess it’s really up to Bobby whether or not something like this is plausible. I’m guessing not. 65 years of torture is a lot, and there is no way the transfusion blood would last longer than that, so it would only be able to be prolonged by a few months tops.

  162. Theinen Says:

    Hey Jeff that is a good thought, now you have me thinking lol. Bobby don’t let these guys get to you so much. This is the kind of senseless crap I had to go through as well. Something I realized is if you ignore them long enough they’ll go away, but that can also hurt as well.

    Anyway, to the naysayers who say the guy is too old to know how to use the RPG, plane to drop bombs or whatever, I know Bobby himself said that the EFZ (like how someone abb. it as evil first zombie) flew around personally eliminating the stragglers, he himself wouldn’t have to do that. He can command his zombies to do anything that that could do before he died. While he may need to concentrate on a group to make them perform such things, the zombie hordes seem to just kill humans on “auto-pilot”. So how simple is it to sic millions of zombies to just run loose and concentrate on 2-3 pilots going around in a stealth bomber? Or maybe once he made his way into the pentagon he had those islands wiped out.

    Come on people just use your imagination a little bit it’s not really that hard! Though to some of the people that ask the same questions over and over, I can somewhat understand. Read old comments too much stupidity so you stop reading and just post your own, but if you keep doing that, you only frustrate the author because it seems as if the story isn’t being told properly. If you can’t suffer throught to read them all, then just wait for the comic to be finished.

    That being said, all the questions I’m wondering about I have to keep to myself lol. Mostly “what ifs?” and “what’s gonna happen next?” One question that only came after Jeff’s is what I have to ask though. You said Payne would kick the crap out of the EFZ if they were one on one locked in a room. Is that any vampire in general or because Addison…well because he’s Addison Fucking Payne? Maybe his true strength is not just his power but because of how he uses it, using a pawn to kill a king? Other questions just based off what Jeff said, so waiting on your answer for that.

    Again, good story guy. Even moreso because it’s original. Originality carries a heavy burden these days. Say it’s the T-virus and a human is going to save the day and everybody will love it though lol. I know they ask for an e-mail address but it’s not posted with comments. I want to ask a question though, but not about the storyline of the comic, I’m going to scroll up and get your e-mail, but let me know if it’s okay to send you an e-mail first. I don’t wanna seem stalkerish o.O

  163. Bobby Crosby Says:

    Theinen, why do you keep calling The First Zombie EFZ? You’re the third person now in the comments to call him EFZ and it’s really confusing and weird. Just more proof of other things I’ve said on this page, I guess.

    “Bobby don’t let these guys get to you so much.”

    Stop saying things like that — pointless and annoying.

    “You said Payne would kick the crap out of the EFZ if they were one on one locked in a room. Is that any vampire in general or because Addison…well because he’s Addison Fucking Payne?”

    Addison Payne would kick anyone’s ass. Not all vampires would beat Evil TFZ in a fight.

    E-mails are fine.

  164. Theinen Says:

    Don’t read all the comments, mostly pointless criticism or people telling you that you’re wrong about a story taking place in your universe. Just read today because no update and thought there was a reason in the comments, like when it would be updated. Don’t want to check back and see the same page, it’s like waking up too early on Christmas morning and being told to go back to bed. I thought “EFZ” was a new dub from an old comment since there’s one zombie, April’s grandpa, that’s not entirely bad with his own running crew. “The EFZ” I took to mean as “The evil first zombie” but it’s not something you dubbed so my bad. I’ll get that e-mail to you later though.

  165. Bobby Crosby Says:

    Ah, that’s actually my bad — I should have realized that. I’m an idiot. Always been horrible at figuring out what acronyms stand for.

  166. ShAmPi Says:

    I love Bobby’s responses as much as the comic.
    I myself had some blank spots about the comic as well.
    But none of which weren’t explained later on in comic and/or comments.
    Anyway,
    I love you came up with the idea to let rage bend that zombies head to the same direction he’s watching.
    And I think that other zombie in the background finds it funny as well.
    As it seems he’s laughing.
    Congrats so far Bobby!

  167. Wesley Says:

    Haha, wow. I love the comic. Been hoarding this site for updates regularly. Read through all the comments though, and your insults Bobby are kind of annoying – no offense. Your writing is so good in the comic. But the posts lately.. eh not so much. Not that you care. Not that I care.

    Anyway.. Keep up the good work.

    Also.. traces of blood can be found in bodies of undecomposed bodies hundreds.. even thousands of years later. Mummified bodies from the eighteenth dynasty in Egypt have been found, and traces of blood used alongside hair in an attempt to compare the genetic makeup of peoples today compared to back in the day.

    Granted.. perhaps vampires “consume” the blood.. as opposed to just having it stored in them like we do..

    Just putting that out there.. shouldn’t be too hard for ya to think up of an answer I’m sure :) .

  168. Bobby Crosby Says:

    “and your insults Bobby are kind of annoying – no offense.”

    Get the fuck out.
