May 21, the long prophesied Judgment Day, seems to have come and gone with no calamity and certainly no zombies wandering my neighborhood. I am a little disappointed, because having just read Zeke Deadwood- Zombie Lawman, I was rather looking forward to some zombie justice coming to my town.
I can’t tell if this is supposed to be the start of a new series, or just a one off book. Either way, it is great fun. Zeke is a slow, foul smelling, rotting zombie, who also happens to be a wandering lawman, covering the West on his near dead horse. When desperadoes move into town, Zeke comes to the rescue!
That’s about all there is to it, really. This is a single comic, so there is not much you can put into 20 something pages. The comic is black and white, and although the shading work is nice I don’t think it is even inked. Looking back on this slim volume I keep wondering if it was in any way worth the $3.99 I paid for it. I made me smile more than any of the other overpriced comics I bought this week, so it definitely was.
Hopefully this isn’t Zeke’s last adventure. He may be smelly, rotting, slow on the draw, and undead, but he is a heck of a lawman.
