The generous people at Crude Comics Inc. sent me some comic books not too long ago. My favorite was ZombieSluts. This was a new comic book series to me and I wasn’t sure how I’d like it because, as a general rule, I don’t usually go for zombie content. However, this one was not only interesting but, also funny.
Now, if crude content (hence the name of the company) is NOT your thing, then you won’t like the writing so much BUT, the artwork is DEFINITELY still something to be appreciated my true, die-hard comic book lovers. This artist is really talented and the art in this issue is nothing short of a unique expression of the storyline. It is very detailed. The creativity pours out onto every page. The color choices are great. And the artist’s vision of the zombie look is a really good one. It’s a great take on the traditional zombie characteristics but, there’s a little bit of redneck Billy Bob teeth kind of thing goin’ on too. It’s really good. Not only are the zombies disgusting, they are also humorous. It’s a nice spin on the horror comic genre to incorporate the comedy like they have in this series.
Initially, when this was sent to me, I was informed ahead of time that there were crude jokes and bathroom humor in what was being sent to me. As I have stated before, it really takes a lot to offend me, especially if it’s something for entertainment value. Such things are so subjective and I’m just not sensitive to such things. And I was actually expecting a lot worse than what is actually in here. What IS in here is some foul language, some trashy chicks that would make a sailor blush, violence, sexual innuendo, bodily functions and much more. I would actually say that, in a way, it reminds me of a much more adult version of MAD Magazine type comedy but escalated. Which is great for me because I LOVED MAD Magazine when I was a kid.
Additionally, and this is just a personal observation, they really did something different with the page layouts in this issue. It’s not just your typical panels. Some pages are full page illustrations, some have full page illustrations and then panels on top, some are the panels but, even then, they are arranged in different sizes and positions so even just that makes you pay more attention and appreciate the artistic side of what was created here.
Plus, we start the issue with a quote from Gary Busey, who, and I have seen interviews with him, has put himself through a lot of crap in his time on this earth so far. So, a lot of what he says has an interesting flair to it. And this quote is no exception. Sometimes the most seemingly messed up people are actually the ones that know what’s really going on…they’ve been there.
So, I am totally looking forward to the next issue. I love the amount of nastiness and vile content in this series. I mean, immoral chicks on Spring Break and zombies…what could POSSIBLY go wrong?!
