Outlaw Zombie #1 Reviewon March 4, 2012 at 3:07 pm
Being an Australian I am not too aware of the collage system in the states so it is good to be able to open up this book and let my imagine run wild!
I’m also not a big fan of the zombie genre unless its more of a comedy. Zombie Outlaw is just that, a fun adventure consisting of hot girls, jocks and ZOMBIES!
this book is definetly a fun read and writer Brian Apodaca and artist Benny Jordan bring fun, excitement all into a big ball. Its nice to get away from some of the serious
books from the main stream publishers and get into the indy stuff which takes things and flips them on their head.
The main character of this story is Matt who has a huge crush on the hottest girl in the school K.T. Delaney. However Matt needs some pointers about getting the girls
from his mate Will, who agrees to help Matt. Will is interested in reading about the schools history and decided to take Matt to the school library. The two find themselves
discovering a secret door leading to a dark room underneith the library which has been abandoned for what appears to be hundreds of years.
It is here that they discover what appears to be a mummy wearing a cowboy hat. However the two then discover that the mummy is in fact a zombie! All I can say about the ending
is that it leaves you on a cliff hanger wanting more out of the second issue to discover what is going on and how can Matt and Will stop this zombie before he eats everyone.
I really love the art style in this book as well as the panel layouts which are unique and don’t see any similiar sytles in any other comic books these days.
The story writting is great and you can tell that this is a book with a lot of histroy and mystery. I can’t wait to see what Brian and Benny come up with in the next issue.
The creators will be at Wondercon 2012 in Anaheim on March 16th-18th. Visit them at the small-press area, booth # SP-096 where I will also be making an apperance at as well.
