Post by: Boomstick on August 16, 2009, 11:26:25 pm
what the hell?  geez those Red Halos need to meet my drill sergeants from when I was in basic training...give em a taste of how to obey orders.  And then someone zapped the shit out of Charlie?  I'm guessing Jasper...pussy


Title: Re: Today's Comic

well, at least we know jenny is still alive and well.

Post by: DoctorVeR on August 17, 2009, 12:49:16 am

Milo did it.  Just 'cause he's supposed to die soon, and...I wanted to be the first to renew the Milo death theories.

Or maybe Charlie's gettin' back to his Zerking ways?  Everyone will die soon...oh dear.

Unless Jasper had a taser installed in his shoe, I doubt it.. xD

Blah blah school stuff

Yeah not sure what's going on, maybe Charlie ran out of zombie juice and needs a refill. 

We'll find out in the next exciting episode of ... The Zombie Hunters! ;) (Now I want to cast everybody in TZH as a soap star.)

Maybe Charlie just realised what he was doing and angsted!


Title: Re: Today's Comic
Post by: ensouls on August 17, 2009, 06:26:28 pm
Electric Angst would be an excellent name for a band.


Title: Re: Today's Comic
Post by: Boomstick on August 17, 2009, 08:23:55 pm
an emo metal band LOL

"We are...ELECTRIC ANGST!!!"

Anyways, so not to derail....I still say Jasper pulled an ace out of his sleeve with a taser


Title: Re: Today's Comic
Post by: Cheez on August 18, 2009, 10:20:59 am
I reckon that after getting shot, Milo goes crazy and kills Dr. Ellard.

I dint think milo would go insane...


Title: Re: Today's Comic
Post by: Dodom on August 18, 2009, 03:38:10 pm
Maybe this is part of the demonstration, and Charlie has a chip in his brain that can cause him intense pain at the push of a button, so he can never go totally out of control. Which would be why the other officers were ordered not to interfere, and hesitated because the almost being pwnt stunt was not part of the plan they heard of, Jasper just made it up on the spot to give a show without briefing them properly so they wouldn't think that things got out of hand.

Oh, and of course, this causes Milo to die.


Title: Re: Today's Comic
Post by: ensouls on August 18, 2009, 04:13:14 pm
Very Manchurian Candidate. And Milo dies from the intense psychic emanations, secretly being an empath.


Title: Re: Today's Comic
Post by: Dodom on August 18, 2009, 04:14:40 pm
I never saw the Manchurian Candidate. I think I should, with how often it gets refered to, but I don't like thrillers in general!


Title: Re: Today's Comic
Post by: DoctorVeR on August 18, 2009, 05:04:54 pm
Electric Angst then could have a band battle with Charlie and the Half-lives  >:3  Then Milo realizing he can't compete with the aweome of rock bands decides to move away, and this is what the next page is gonna be all about.

But Charlie and the Half-Lives isn't a rock band, dude. It's a blues band.

Get yer facts straight, matey.  ;{D


Title: Re: Today's Comic
Post by: DoctorVeR on August 18, 2009, 05:26:37 pm

Sorry, everything's kinda not available for a reference check.  That just means CTH would uber pwnt EA, anything else doesn't need to be said. 

And Ellard is shot because the Afro smily has become an assassin.


Title: Re: Today's Comic
Post by: suntzu on August 18, 2009, 07:32:50 pm
I've read the whole comic, so I know that both Charlie & Jasper survive. Question: why didn't Charlie kill Jasper when he had the chance?


Title: Re: Today's Comic
Post by: Boomstick on August 18, 2009, 10:26:39 pm
probably because he will be told not to.  He was told to defend Meaghan, not kill her attacker.  I think just a bit of his 'zerker rage showed through when he was smacked hardcore in the face.

I actually just saw someone yesterday that looked EXACTLY like Jasper. EXACTLY. The soul patch, the snidley look, even smoking while talking in a brash manner. If I wasn't so polite/shy around people I would have took a picture with my phone.

Yes. Like I said in the comments on one of the recent pages, it was all an act. He doesn't feel pain, so he was using Zombie Ace Dick's form of Auto-Parry.


Title: Re: Today's Comic
Post by: Dodom on August 19, 2009, 05:23:41 pm
Even if he doesn't feel pain, he could get pissed at the thought of his face getting broken. Until he and Jasper agreed together and Jasper got a plastic baton. And the nosebleed is from... looking up his skirt?


Title: Re: Today's Comic
Post by: suntzu on August 19, 2009, 06:25:22 pm
If Charlie felt 'zerker rage, he might lose control and kill Jasper anyway. Well, a man can dream, right?

Title: Re: Today's Comic
Post by: Boomstick on August 19, 2009, 10:47:47 pm
She was saying if it was a ruse concocted by Jasper and Charlie being in cahoots to kill Milo...the Baton is soft foam/plastic, and the bloody nose was just a ketchup packet/blood capsule like in Pro Wrestling.  Then they both turn on Milo and rip him to shreds LOL

this is a lame back and forth.  just a bunch of mombo jumbo.  hopefully when put together with the next page it becomes something more.

note:  I am not dissing the comic, I am just saying that this page does not seem important by itself...at least not to me.  But once we get to read it "traditional" style, it may have more meaning, seeing as there is no more week long wait.

I'm wondering...what does Mercer think of Megan's relationship with Charlie?  Obviously he uses it, but what's the angle here?  Does he not care or could he be disgusted, and what does Megan suspect of his opinion.  Hmmm....the plot thickens in such a brief moment  >:7

Title: Re: Today's Comic

Black pudding is too dry but it's good if you add something fat to smoothen it a little.


Maybe Charlie could eat a bit of anything, and just not get any nutrient from it. Like I said before, he could smear his human sludge on a steak and get something tasty for his meal...

Paralize is what you do when you stun rather than incapacitate an undead. Do it in the R&D Wing all the time. It's how you prep 'em for a labotomy (as opposed to a lobotomy of course).  ;D

Then out in the field Jasper and Milo trade places, thanks to Megans awesome reconstructive surgery.  But, due to the Jasper chip put into Milo, he goes full asshole, causing Jenny to go heartbroken.  Eventually, good Jasper has to kill bad Jasper, in order to salvage his scant reputation that was tarnished throughout Sesaon 1.  But the twist is, did good Jasper succeed in killing bad Jasper?....or have we been rooting for bad Jasper the whole time  >:O

Wonder that Arthur is cooking up   ;D

Megans worried 'cause Jasper's using naughty pics of her an Arthur, and she doesn't want Charlie to know.  And since she can't run during a zombie attack Charlie will have to carry her like Luke did Yoda.  But Charlie gets hungry and it becomes a problem.

Also she knows that Chapt 8 is gunna totally rock, and that might be worrisom too   :-\

Post by: Grammer on October 07, 2009, 08:07:33 am
I just think Megan is jealous. Must have been ages since she got any, and she was hoping to get it on with Charlie. And then it, as mentioned, turns out that Charlie is into Jasper.

See, that's what the half-life project really is about. It is there to create perfect partners for single, desperate women. Which is needed, since jasper now is getting busy with Charlie.


Title: Re: Today's Comic
Post by: Hailfax on October 07, 2009, 08:16:25 am
I still think Charlie is a relative to either Megan or another scientist. More for Megan, though. That's why he's so protective of her. Maybe it was her fault that he was turned into a zombie in the first place.

Nah, they don't want people like the one guy climbing the fence and beating up infected people.

Which would lead them to getting infected as well.  I just would think they would want to keep the infected from getting OUT more then the uninfected getting in.

If you want to keep people from both ways, there's a variety of security fences that you can use.  Some have multiple stanchions (one up, one angled in each direction), or there's the good 'ole coiled barb / razor / concertina wire.

Do their on-island tasks involve taking care of Charlie? And that's how they get him assigned to the team? Or they end up having janitor jobs for that time? Also, maybe Milo later ends up mortally wounded and they're stranded in the Wastelands and Milo eats dying Milo to survive and he gets away with it since Milo would have died anyway but Jenny can't forgive it. Maybe? Maybe!

poor jenny so happy then so messed up now. Though killing your boyfriend to take over his team of post apocalyptic looters only to discover your not a good leader would depress anyone.
keeping Milo in her closet probably doesnt help the old mental stability either.

Eh? Has the comic discussed how Milo died yet or is the forum conjecture mingling with sleep deprivation to confuse me?

We know he dies. It's been mentioned in the comic somewhat, and on the old forum. Also, if he wasn't dead, why wouldn't he be leading his team and why would Jenny be crying over his stuff? Exactly.

(also, if somebody wants to do one of those Phoenix Wright things that shouts objection and type my post in, go for it, it will make it way cooler)

Stuck up asshole for asking if you'd like to reread a question? I get better at this every day...

Thank you for clarifying. I didn't make the connection between Jenny hating Charlie and Milo being dead, but it makes sense. We know that it can't have anything to do with him in his zombie-past, though, since Milo was still A-OK when Charlie smacked down that assholey MSGT Jasper HALO guy.

The loudspeaker thing reminds me of George Orwell's "Animal Farm" when the pigs took over the farm, they wrote the "laws of animal" on the barn. Then, throughout the book, they keep repeating it over and over to the other animals.

Then it also reminds me of you know, Nazis. c:

I kinda just took it as, 'the characters have a history and a life that began long before we started watching them'.... after all, ComicJenny would've lived in the wastes for several years before coming to ARC.

Maybe after this story is over RealJenny will do other things in the TZH universe and show us more of the backstory.

Maybe I'm just a huge nerd and love backstory of characters of things. I love learning about their pasts and I love to know more about how they're able to get their personalities. It would be awesome to get a chapter or so about livin' in the Wastelands and stuff. Or how the ARC reacted when they found humans there, too. I find all this fascinating.

Nooooo... Milo shot Jenny the first time he saw her, he thought she was a basilisk because he had just been staing into the sun and saw dubious lights when he looked at her face. Then he realised his mistake and she fell in love while he was nursing her back to health. Before falling in love, though, she punched him in the spleen using an ancient chinese technique of time-punch, he didn't feel it, but his spleen will rupture unexpectedly in the near future, he'll bleed internally and die, then become a zombie and Charlie offs him and that is how he dies!

I've read the poem but I don't see how the name was ironic. Whatever, no worries.

It's ironic because the poem is about basically going to "hell and back." Because the Mariner killed the ship's "good luck charm" the crew and the Mariner slowly went insane due to no water and due to the rage of bad luck because of the death of the Albatross.

It's ironic because the Albatross like you said, is good luck. However, it could mean that one day some idiot is going to sabotage the engine and thus killing the Zombie Hunters on the ship going into the Wasteland.

Also, it's the name of the Ship that Jenny uses for her Firefly MMO, thing.

And it looks like she's finally able to do stuff like an average adult. (Zombie killing game that Greg mentions) But, it still looks like she has a problem connecting with people.

They're still three against one, even if she has m4d skills her chances are not that good...
But maybe zombie hunters are allowed to be armed...

Or they're allowing Charlie to take some fresh air away from the population at the moment and he sees that, wants to protect the poor girl and he eats them all and go look for Milo for dessert!


But most likely they beat her up, humiliate her and walk away.

OK, what the heck?

I think Katie's having some sort of flashback or something like post-traumatic stress disorder.  When she's really scared, she sees everyone as zombies and freaks out.

So dork with a broken nose better hope she isn't packing a .45 in there, or he's going to get head-shotted real soon.

dans pretty normal, he even tried to cover for his friends with the boss and got the shaft for it. Theres nothng more normal than that.
As for the mental issues those are pretty normal too. everyone on arc who is infected ended up in that condition somehow. The somehow probably wasnt all that much fun and left lasting emotional disturbances for them to deal with.
Poor Katie probably has PTSD and flashbacks to zombie attacks shes survived.

I think F. Katie is a totally loonie and just waits for an excuse to kill everyone on the island. And now, by pretending to be zombies, they have finally provided that excuse.
The reason she looks a little... perturbed is 'cause she really wasn't expecting to get the excuse any time soon, and now have to adjust a little.

They were infected but didn't know, and the space they were in suddenly jumped forward several years. The shock of this caused them to have heart attacks before time returned to normal speed for them, so their bodies rapidly deteriorated.

I see three possibilities here:

1. Katie freezes, and probably gets hurt by them.
2. She gets terror-speed and runs.
3. She flips out and attacks them, either resulting in them badly hurt or killed, with serious consequences for her when it's discovered; or with her badly hurt, or both.

Not good.

Why can't people just not be jerks to each other? :C


Title: Re: Today's Comic
Post by: Dodom on December 19, 2009, 10:22:16 am
Or possibility 1.5: Kathie freezes and cries and whimpers and whines, the bullies get awkward and leave, maybe pushing her in the mud for good measure.


Title: Re: Today's Comic
Post by: Grammer on December 19, 2009, 12:03:33 pm
Then Katie's tears infect the puddle she just happens to stand in (there's puddle there, dammit!). A little after she's gone, a kid falls face-first into that puddle and gets a mouthful of mud and Katie-tears. Before this is caught on to, the kid has infected its family, who's gone and infected several of the neighbors.
A little after this,  the kid if killed by a lightning strike, comes back as a badly burnt zombie and tries to eat Katie. Karma... it's a bitch.

This is getting good, despite this comic being good long ago. You probably get it. I'm wondering if Katie happens to have sharp and/or pointy things on her. If she some how infected them during a potential fight, but kills them, things could get messy. Imagine the fun that would come from 3 fresh Berserkers. I'm hoping that doesn't happen.

Then again, she makes that rock work too.


Title: Re: Today's Comic
Post by: gabriel7384 on December 23, 2009, 01:59:16 pm
mmmmmh my crystal ball tell me that something AWFUL will happen.

A little nose bleeding isn't that bad and anyway, he is still moving, so he is not (yet) dead. Now, there are still two potential threats against Katie...so:

1. Katie just run.
2. Katie got kicked.
3. Katie got kicked but she get help from another character.
4. Something totally different happen.


I would say #4.


Title: Re: Today's Comic
Post by: Rampito on December 23, 2009, 08:41:51 pm
I think:

1. Katie will snap out of it and realize he is not a zombie and run.
2. The guy will move as Katie brings down the bark. Sure he has a broken nose, but I'm pretty sure once he realizes she might possibly kill him, he'll move.
3. One of his friends is going to tackle her or something.
4. Someone from her team is going to pop up, stop her and fend off the bullies.

well, what does "git" mean?
we have a word that is speled the same in polish, but it means something like cool or fine,
but this word is not widely used.

American git = Shortening of "get out".

It could still be Jasper, seeing as he has the same (http://www.thezombiehunters.com/index.php?strip_id=122)  rank  (http://www.thezombiehunters.com/index.php?strip_id=228). Then again, that link is at a point in the comic where it isn't a flashback so Jasper may have just acquired that rank in the present.

And then again...it could very likely just be another officer xD

Wallet's a good place to keep ID and stuff without misplacing it. I has a wallet. It's a bitch and a half when I just bring my Driver's License to places (bars, concerts, etc) in fear of getting it stolen or it falls out of the pocket. Wallet makes sure that it stays with you.

So I was right about Jasper just being that annoyed. He either really likes Mau or really dislikes the trouble those bullies cause. Either way, things could be worse.


Title: Re: Today's Comic
Post by: DoctorVeR on January 05, 2010, 02:02:36 am

I'm sure the wallet just sorta fell into Katie's hand.  It happens to me a lotta times >V>  ...wut?

But what a twist!  Jasper, half asshat, half kitten cuddler.  Who would've thought?  He must have high morals or something, but it's easy to hate bullies.  But keep in mind folks he was sorta the guy that saved our ZH at the first of this comic, blackmailing Mau aside....

Maybe he was drunk?  (Insert Milo death theory here)


Title: Re: Today's Comic
Post by: Dr. McNinja on January 05, 2010, 09:39:59 am
Jasper's a anti-hero type thing, he's a good guy, but he's a total dick about it.


Title: Re: Today's Comic
Post by: Pietris on January 05, 2010, 01:47:47 pm
Personally I think most people got Jasper down a little wrong.

He appears to be neither a particularly bad or nice person: in majority of the instances he's been seen in was him working as a Red Halo officer. "Saving" Katie was simply part of his duties, and whether he likes it or not he tends to do his job as best he can (how else could he have risen to such a high rank?)

Also, he doesn't actually go out of his way to promote the detriment of other characters; while he appears to perhaps milk situations to attain the most pleasure from them, sometimes to the chagrin of more popular characters, he hasn't yet done anything to particularly harm any of them.

In conclusion, he's just another human: selfish, ego-centric and using power to the point of abuse.

Considering his situation, and the very nature of humanity and society at this point, is his behaviour so irregular?

*stays in the "DIE JASPER" corner*
I think making him a more complete character would have worked better showing him handling a different situation than a slight variation on the original one.
Jasper VS Jenny = he's in authority and she'd have little rights or even credibility against him should she fight back
Jasper VS Kathie = he's in authority and she'd have little rights or even credibility against him should she fight back
At best it could mean he's more of a douche with some people than others (or just wasn't PMSing this day), at worst it's just out of character. If he's bad at authority, it'd make more sense making him good at something else.


Title: Re: Today's Comic
Post by: Greg on January 07, 2010, 11:51:20 pm
Well, bear in mind this is also 11 months before we saw him be a dick to Jenny ;)

Perhaps the theft has something to do with why he's more antagonistic to the crew?

Personally, I maintain he's a dick through and through, though. I figure he's just a dick to adults, is all.

'tis Katie, tho.


Title: Re: Today's Comic
Post by: Grammer on January 08, 2010, 07:57:16 am
Once upon a time, there was a kid named Jasper. Jasper the kid was a fan of Buffy the Vampire Slayer. Then one day, the word went to hell on Jasper the kid, though and he rapidly stopped being a kid. After a bit time in a hostile environment, Jasper found other survivors, and was taken in by them. As thanks for the rescue, he decided to do his bit, and joined HALO.

One day, while looking for a bunch of idiot kids who'd been causing trouble, he found a bit more than he had bargained for. For a split second, the tought of letting the stake plunge flashed through his mind. It was followed even faster by... something else. There she was, the blond (delusional much) girl he had had a crush on as a kid. She was there, about to kill a troublemaker. However, he knew others wouldn't see it quite that way, so he intervened.


So yeah, Jasper actually has a major crush on Katie and is just going through Mau to get closer to her :P
I even managed to type that with a straight face.

The real hat is made from Sammie, yes.


I'm pretty sure Sammie didn't kill an innocent PEDObear to make Jenny's hat, but it does sound like something Sammie would do.


And I like this back story of the hat better. It makes Milo and Jenny's relationship more real in the story. They're not static characters who are in this world and have a relationship, there are reasons why they have this relationship and all that. Plus, it makes Milo have more cool points because he personally made the hat himself for her.

That and more of a reason to be saddened that he's going to die/disappear/eaten by Tribbles.

Plus, it makes Milo have more cool points because he personally made the hat himself for her.
It better, that hat was a bitch to make--fleece? Kind of evil because the fabric stretches and Jenny's head is not shaped like your 'average bear'...picanic basket... I'm *still* working on the goddamn design (in my <lack of> copious amounts of free time). He probably lost a couple of chunks of hair in the process.

I wonder... those three punk kids from before... is it possible that they will enrage Charlie? You've seen how he reacts towards those who threaten his friends.


So possibly he is assigned as a replacement for Jamson, performs well, then is placed as Kates guardian (wut?) during which time he freaks. 



























And kills Milo.

I mean, hadn't it only been like two-three weeks since Charlie had become a half-life at that point?
How do you go from "hurrrrrrr..." to "Tea, m'lady?" in that short amount of time?
It was even explained in the comic by Mercer that he had regained none of his original personal traits.
That means his personality is recently developed.

Some explanation on that would be very nice.  :-\

Post by: Dodom on March 01, 2010, 05:17:07 pm
It doesn't take extreme brain damage to cause a personality change, so he could have retrieved most of his former aptitudes and still miss the little magical part that forms identity. Obviously one would not learn to talk so quickly, so they have a way to revive parts of his memory at least. Actually, they could have purposedly destroyed his former ego so he'd be less prone to an existential crisis and rebellion.

Or they just force him to wear a monocle whenever he's in private so gentleman vibes sink in. That's why he has only one normal eye.

A few moths have went by since Jenny first saw him, and some more passed since the conference. I really really dislike displaying 'x amount of time' has passed when you can rather show not tell, it IS tricky however, as you can see, because people are confused.
 
I displayed time passing with the change of the season in this chapter, (http://www.thezombiehunters.com/index.php?strip_id=214) and from that chapter, them mentioning (http://www.thezombiehunters.com/index.php?strip_id=236) another month passing on top of that, and for those keen eyes, Jenny's hair growing longer ;)

Pretty much like Dodom did in her TZH based comic, "Half's quarters".
She made a couple of panels named "Things that are just too sad to actually happen", whereas there were a couple of situations that were quite sad, but which were just "alternate" and immediatly pushed away by the comic continuing normally.
Still "Catherine" all of a sudden being dead AND having bitten a child made me go  D': before I saw that the comic continued normally.
Quite funny yes, as long as we get to know that it is alternate immediately.

And the website were the majority of the comic strips are hosted is this:

Hm. Interesting. They gave Charlie James' room.


Since Milo is no longer there, I wonder who gets his room. It looks like that the ARC keeps using the Infected for their experiments and their dirty deeds, it wouldn't be surprising to see some new person in Milo's room soon.

Charlie's eye! Why is one normal while the other one is zombie? If it is a lens then why did the veins in his eye show when he was fighting Jasper?

Can I be nitpicky for a moment, in the page or so before this when Charlie was getting ready to leave wherver they were, it looked like both his eyes were blue?  I thought maybe he'd already put his contact in, but here he has the mismatched.  Just thought I mention....

They sound already eager to go though, they seem to view the on island work as degrading.

Not completely true. The floors could be perfectly good but they will rot if the ceiling keeps dripping on them. Damage spreads as soon as it means that things not meant to be under the weather are exposed. Water is a no go if you want the building to last.


Now for a building to end up in this state without being decades old, it'd have to have been made like that on purpose. I stand by my theory where the A.R.C. is actively working at underlining the infected's inferior status.
Either that or Jenny reproduced the atmosphere of poor streets without taking their history into account because while the cheapest build housing involve relatively uniformous blocky appartments, they don't look coolly chaotic like the old streets that took over a century to turn into a crazily densified shantytown.

Could just be that the buildings were built in a rush using a labour force that for the most part had no idea what they were doing. using zombie refugees as a workforce would probably make for some shoddy construction.

It might've been that the infected barracks were going to be perminent areas for the un, but later changed that.  Or the buildings were to be used for other means, I doubt storage though.

Things like a leaky roof can ruin a home, building, water.  And if they're on the coast, near water, blah, where things really won't dry out if water get in...I'm gonna go lay down now.

I just came to think of it...
How do they cope with infected individuals who die of natural deaths?
I mean, you go over to your grandmas house for a cup of tea, you open the door and *rawrh* "AAAH!!"
Its understandable why Jenny have so many locks on her door.
Someone just die of age and suddenly you got a zombie.
Yes, there are Red Halos everywhere but damn.

Don't worry, Jenny, I can handle this.

So, basically, when people start getting old, the other infected put them on a large piece of ice on the edge of the main chunk, and then break off the bit they're standing on and they float away.

Katie. Straight to the point.


Going through earlier strips. 29 and 160 show Katie getting pulled back and saved from zombehs by Dan (and Milo).
Repeat of PTSD? you bet!


Where I was going with this? NO IDEA.

I just saw "28 Days Later" for the first time yesterday.  "We had to kill him with a grenade."  Rather apropos.



So, I'm guessing Milo dies when he discovers Katie's and Charlie's lovemaking, and they kill him to protect their secret, no?  Should be coming up next strip I think....

And here I thought Katie was a little girl with a healthy mind... then again, how could she be in a world like this? *slaps self*

People under that kind of stress tend to be a little 'off' as a general rule. Cops, EMS people, ER staff are all a little weird and a little hard-bitten. If you constantly work under those kinds of conditions you tend to develop a fuck-you attitude. I work with at least one nurse that reminds me, *strongly* of Sammie, the difference being she pretends to be nice, Sammie doesn't even bother. That probably doesn't help the infected's relations with the civvies on Arc. Alcoholism is not uncommon, and sometimes substance abuse as well. I know of at least one ER doc who totally and completely flipped out and has been in and out of institutions for years.

That's before we talk about the potential effects the dormant zombie virus might have on your brain chemistry, they might be all be vasty more prone to psychological complications, and stress would only make it worse.

Katie? I don't know. She reminds me of some of the Aspies I know. They're not bad people but they can be very, very socially awkward and come across as callous or even cruel. "James died on our last mission out, it was pretty bad." would have been sufficient information. "Basilisk ate his face off and we had to kill him with a grenade." Is more detail then most people would want. The map is kind of telling too. She sketched everything in the smallest detail down to furniture and debris placement, that's the kind of obsessive detail you see with folks with Asperger's. (Granted that could be an artistic choice for our benefit but if it is how she did it; she really went that all-out with it.)

Yes, what you say is pretty much correct. The difference between me and Katie would be that she has to deal with zombies on a regular basis under pressure. And she probably has PTSD. (and she is a cartoon character, haha)

Why must people think I'm cruel!? Whyyyy... Why... Oh yes, I'm "insensitive" and "disrespectful" too. I don't mean to be. But I dunno how much detail people want.

They developed a more efficient power source: Namely 500+ zombies shambling on treadmills. Their walking turns dynamos which in turn works generators and creates electric power. The zombies are motivated into fruitlessly chasing a human in an adjacent room behind a big lexan glass window who is paid to sit there and read a magazine all day. (widely known as the sweetest job on the Arc.) Zombie power is green, biodegradable and zombies who fall apart from the stress are easily replaced by infected who croak of natural causes.  ;D

Because I'm paranoid, and I know you guys know that I am really not like Comic!Jenny. But, Just so you all know, I would have NEVER done that I'm not that big of a bitch, if Charlie had said that to me I probably have run away crying, or something equally pathetic. I actually cringed when I wrote this, but it's in her character so I had to. When people snap at her, she'll snap back twice as hard. She doesn't seem to have the 'you shouldn't say that/do that' filter installed.

Comic!Jenny didn't actually bring the apple there just to use against him, she was going to eat it herself, but when Charlie made that remark she decided to use it as a prop for some extra zing in her rather cruel sentence. :( I just don't think I portrayed that too well!

Sometimes I totally wish I could go back and change everyones names and appearance lol. Note to aspiring story/comic creators. Don't put yourself in your comic. Bad idea. Bad bad idea.

I've always assumed it was in Comic!Jenny's nature to be that way, becuase killing hordes of used-to-be-human monsters (that also literally ripped her family apart) just made her more apathetic about filtering that sort of stuff; because really, what do words mean when people are trying to eat you? :P

Funny how your characters wind up running you isn't it? I've lost track of situations I've been doing creative writing and said 'Shit, I have to write this, It's logical that X would do Y to Z." Even if that outcome is horrible or disturbing.;D

Quote
Note to aspiring story/comic creators. Don't put yourself in your comic. Bad idea. Bad bad idea.

Too late. Spent 10 years undoing that mistake  :P It's more common then you think though. Stephen King did it, So did Robert Heinlien, Ian Flemming and several other famous writers. Guess it's 'write what you know' to the nth degree. Only positive thing I can say with it is working with character 'templates' based on folks you know is it gives you a feel for learning how to create characters. It works best IMO when you take traits from several individuals and make a Frankenstein out of them.

And if it's any consolation I still think Comic Jenny Gets owned hard by Comic Sam in the bitch department. Tormenting A half-life with an apple isn't half as evil as stealing a kid's sucker.  >:D

Couldn't agree more Jenny, don't put yourself in your fiction.  Without even trying you will come through in what you create, but not in obvious ways like a single character.

Title: Re: Today's Comic
Post by: ensouls on May 24, 2010, 04:04:37 pm
I understand this. But apparently it was told in full during one of the streams. Mostly I just want to know what he ran over a car with. I'm hoping for a tank at the very least.


Title: Re: Today's Comic
Post by: Greg on May 24, 2010, 04:09:24 pm
Yeah, it's been a few years now... But that did actually happen to me. I can no longer remember if the fellow whose truck I smashed was a major or a lt colonel... I know he had the oak leaves, but don't remember the color :)

Probably a major, though; I seem to recall thinking of it as hitting two majors in one day.

Anyhow.

To tell it again...

I'd had my new (to me) Explorer for about four weeks. I'd been asked to go pick up some materials at our headquarters and bring them back to where I worked.

The headquarters parking lot was shaped, hmm... let me see if this works:

Code:

                                        |  main parking lot
  chain link fence................      |
       parking->  |[ ]|[ ]| + |[ ]|     |
                  |[_]|[ ]|[ ]|[ ]|     |
__________________|   |[Y]|[X]|[_]|_____|        |___________|
                           [_]             /---|
two-lane access road                       \---|
-----------------------------------

_____________________________________________________________________

at any rate, if that works.

Okay, so I had picked up the stuff and was exiting the parking lot. It was basically the afternoon and it was a beautiful day in October, just gorgeous. So I figured I'd roll down the windows and enjoy it. At that point, I'd never had all the windows down.

So I hooked out of the main parking area, and about where the big arrow is, I started rolling down all my windows. Probably going about 10-15mph, tops- it wasn't really well paved or anything.

And my left rear window made this hideous screeching sound. So I spin my head around to see what's going on (nothing; I later learned that this sound is caused by dust getting into the rubber seal). And then I look back to the front... and saw the nose of a white toyota tacoma (the one marked with the X), parked in one of the places in front of me, sticking out into my lane of travel.

And then alllll I saw was sky.

Because I hadn't had time to hit the brakes before I hit it, I plowed the tacoma sideways, until it got smashed up against the car next to it (marked with a Y). Then my explorer simply crawled up and over the Tacoma's left front wheel. I caved in its side panel, smashed the hood, and came out again through the grill. Loudest thing I'd ever heard not on the firing range ;)

So I pulled over off the shoulder once I'd got past the parking spaces, to look at the damage and try not to have a heart attack.

I'd bent my bumper, and (because it curves around the nose) also dented my right front body panel.

The Tacoma was totaled. There probably wasn't anything forward of the doors that hadn't been smashed, and I'd done one better by bending it around the volkswagon it had been parked next to. A very familiar-looking volkswagon.

Fortunately, while I was standing around like an idiot trying to figure out what to do, a sergeant wandered by from one of the buildings. She went into the headquarters building to find the owners of the cars, and I called the MPs to report the accident.

The MPs did give me a ticket, and I don't fault them- even though the pickup had been parked sticking out into the lane of travel, it was totally avoidable; there was no oncoming traffic, so if I'd just been looking forward, I'd have been able to simply swerve sedately around the pickup's front end and carry on my merry way.

While that was going on, the sergeant came back with two folks. One was a master sergeant from my unit, who basically took over managing the whole thing so the sergeant who was helping me could go on her way, and one was (I'm pretty sure now) a major I'd never met before. Aaand the major was the owner of the pickup truck. Who had been scheduled to transfer to another base. The following day. Who was going to *drive* himself to said new assignment.

Under the circumstances, he was amazingly calm and polite, really. His first question was, "Do you have insurance?"
I assured him that I did. He said, "Well, then that's better than the last person who hit it."

We exchanged insurance information, and he collected some of his stuff out of the truck, and went on his not-so-merry way. A wrecker came by, and they started the work of dragging the bent pickup out of the parking spot. And then I was able to ask the master sergeant, hey, did she know who the VW belonged to? She said, "Oh, yes, that's major ____'s car."

And that major, while not directly in my chain of command, *WAS* in my unit. We all excercised together, most mornings. Which was why his car looked so familiar- it was generally parked in one of the better spots near the PT field.

So that was how I managed to cream two majors' cars in one day. Though the VW really didn't look like it had suffered much more than paint damage. Tough buggers, VW's.

Anyhow, a couple weeks after that, my unit was asked if they had a spare soldier to send to a reserve unit in Kuwait that was complaining of being short staffed. I've never been able to prove the two events were related, but somehow it wouldn't really surprise me. I was deployed for six months, and allowed to come home again after a touch under eleven months ;)

and that's the story, really. I've told it more than a few times, and this probably won't be the last time, either :)

Jenny decided to steal it for Milo, apparently. I didn't know about that until shortly before the strip went live- Jenny is a sneaky one, she is :D

y'know, I still have bits of white paint on that side of my car, too...

True, but couldn't Charlie last a whole lot longer than anyone else? I imagine since he's a half-life he doesn't rot like zombies, nor does he age like the regular living. Just guessing though, I don't really know.

No zombies rot.
As Mercer said on page 194: "Like the undead found in the wastes, our subject will not decay".
The virus prevents the process that causes corpses to rot.
As you probably have noticed, the wounds on the zombies are not that of decay.
The zombies are practically immortal, though weather, "accidents", battle, muscle strain, etc would very slowly cause them to degenerate since their bodies can't heal themselves.
The part about muscle strain though is fixed by the zombies hibernation ability.

Wait, wait mister postman

If there's a letter in your bag for me
I been waiting such a long time
Since I heard from that girl of mine

There must be some word today
From my girlfriend so far away
Please mister postman look and see
If there's a letter, a letter for me
I been standing here waiting mister postman
So patiently
For just a card or just a letter
Saying she's returning home to me

So many days you passed me by
See the tear standing in my eye
You didn't stop to make me feel better
By leaving me a card or a letter

Please Mr. Postman, look and see
If there's a lette--HOLY SHIT HE IS DEAD!

Though... for the same screen width, the newest tvs are a lot lighter and more portable! Thus a LCD screen would actually be "cheaper" to loot. And you'd actually have to go out of your way to find a vintage model like this... either this one was already on the island, or the A.R.C. is going out of their way for the "you are second class citizens" message to be in the infected's face around every corner.

My thought is PSTD. She was in the wastes a long time. The TV is on to create back ground noise so she doesn't freak at every little sound. Then we've got Charlie, a techical zombie leaning over her reaching for her while she's half concious. Quick, instant reflexive violent reaction; Charlie gets popped one. You see that kind of thing in a lot of vets; it's what kept them alive in combat zones and difficult if not impossible to shut off once you're 'rewired' that way.

Just as a heads up for y'all in the forum- we've just put up a clearance sale on the hoodies.

Between supply issues and just plain runnin' out of room, we're going to stop carrying sweatshirts for the foreseeable future. So get 'em while the getting is good!

These aren't quite as good a deal as the misprints, but they're a quarter off.

How would you react if you woke up with charlie's face at point blank from you?

Or more to the point: how would you react if you survived in a Zombie filled hell-hole for YEARS then had a guy who looks exactly LIKE one wakes you up crouching over you.

Charlie fucked up; unfortunately he kind of wants to forget what he is; Jenny can't, ever not deep down in that part of her that kept her alive when she was being hunted by them on a daily basis.

Well yeah, she would have to get used to him.
Imagine if he simply sat down in a chair to relax. She then wakes up and sees him and throws the remote at him from nearly across the room in panic.
Or at the very least jump and scream. Which is simply offending  :P

*checks to see if ensouls is around*

But he is still one of them.  He might be under control, but he's not "cured", he's not even really alive.  They've managed (somehow) to have him retain something of a personality and act in what appears to be a rational manner.  But he is an experiment.  Jenny has every right to be cautious, suspicious, and even somewhat afraid of Charlie.  Now we've glimpsed at what his potential is already, so this opinion may change, but personally I'd have to see more.

Well megan and the Lab rat set are a bit more how shall we say....refined then the THZ crew, which consists of a highly reactive tough chick tomboy, a psychopathic medic/bomber, an spacy slightly creepy navigator/scout/cartographer....Maureen and Milo, who are the only two who seem...less quirky then the rest of the grading curve. They're all quite a bit quirker then Zombie C-3PO is used to dealing with. I don't think Charlie would fair much better in an any EMS/Military setting because folks who deal with death on a regular basis tend to be weird by the standards of so-called 'normal' people. He's definately more the College professor type.

Course the snotty British attitude doesn't help matters much.

Sorry Charlie, no sympathy yet.

I don't think Charlie remembers that far back.  They didn't just give him the treatment and suddenly he was sipping tea, when he was adequent and stable enough they probably started to teach him his basics and then he went off from there.  When Meg and them first introduced Charls to the world, I don't even think he had a fullish vocab yet (probably wrong, bleh).  He didn't talk a whole lot, We only got a few words like - Megan, No, rawwr - but we know he could follow commands like a battle bot

Charlie took a decision making moment the second he entered the room.

A) Shut off TV by pressing the power button on the TV.

B) reach for the remote which jenny is hugging in her sleep and thus cause DRAMA!


Charlie confirmed for attention whore.


Title: Re: Today's Comic
Post by: Dodom on August 07, 2010, 06:40:34 am
Here I'm gonna talk about PTSD:

As someone who went through a collection of traumatic events at pre-school age (better not go into details) I know the topic from the inside. Now all cases are different, the age of onset and the victim's personality play much into it. Some become introverted, some turn into harpies, some develop weird habits they seem to be comfortable with, some look normal but snap unpredictably, etc. PTSD is for all life. It physically alters the prefrontal lobe, and the brain doesn't heal like a sore muscle, a past trauma only makes one more vulnerable to the next.

It's not something that will go away and that you can afford to make more comfortable until it passes. The way to live with it has never been to avoid situations that trigger anxiety or anger, because they include everyday events. You sure should avoid too intense stress, and not put up with people who want to "fix" you (unless it's actually their job; but most people who want that have no knowledge of psychology) or otherwise drive you past your limit, but you have to aknowledge that your tolerance to stimulus is diminished, that not every thing that feels like an assault is one.
You still won't be normal, you'll still have mood swings and bad days and fears that make no sense, but planning your life around them will not help, no matter how tempting. And planning others' life around it... just isn't going to happen. Do veterans who beat their wives and children get better? No, they hurt themselves as much as their family. PTSD causes it, but doesn't make it a good idea. Behaviors that stem from a mental illness, believe it or not, aren't always sensible.



So I believe Charlie has the right attitude. He is not pushing Jenny around, but he refuses to pretend he isn't there. If she hadn't been doing everything to make him feel unwanted, then going out of his way not to disturb her nap would simply be polite, but with the way she has been acting, he has to show her that he's unimpressed. Milo may be trying to protect her, he is encouraging her in something that is unhealthy.


Title: Re: Today's Comic
Post by: GrimKusanagi on August 07, 2010, 11:18:38 am
Seems a bit overly complicated. Could simply be you dig at me I'm gonna dig at you. And since Jenny did start it and takes every chance she gets naturally Charlie is going to retaliate if he gets a chance.

Now I can understand Jennys reaction with the remote since Charlies still new but 11 months later shes still having nightmares of him taking a chunk out of her. At that point you have to realize it's not Charlie(or zombies in general for that matter) she is afraid of but Death. And in her mind Charlie is the personification of death. They will never get along till she gets over her fear of death.

Atleast thats the way I see it.


Title: Re: Today's Comic
Post by: Dodom on August 07, 2010, 12:44:36 pm
In the future her fear might be more justified. So far Charlie did nothing except return her provocations. 11 months later, maybe he did do something in the meantime. (someone still has to kill Milo!)


Title: Re: Today's Comic
Post by: GrimKusanagi on August 07, 2010, 09:04:24 pm
Think maybe Charlie had something to do with Milo's death? I duno Jenny probably would have executed him on the spot. If he did I'm sure it was kept secret from her.


Title: Re: Today's Comic
Post by: Dodom on August 07, 2010, 09:59:27 pm
It could be him or it could be anyone or anything, really... Charlie probably does something in the future, because future Jenny says so (I know what you did!) but it can be anything shameful, not necessarily as serious as murder.

But speculating on Milo's fate is a little game I enjoy XD

This is funny because, yesterday, I was listening to music on my bed when my mother walked into my room. Now I have headphones that can cancel out everything but what I am listening to so I didn't hear her come in. She put her hand on my leg and I freaked out and almost kicked her in the face D: I even cried she scared me so bad haha.

I have always been one of those people who freaks out when someone wakes them up, and I have been like that ever since I could remember XD :slowpoke:


Title: Re: Today's Comic
Post by: BrainBlow on August 08, 2010, 01:39:05 pm
I'm the type that "freezes" when scared.
But not the usual type where people inhale air quickly and stuns with a scared/terrified expression.
When it comes to me, time stops. My movement, expression, everything. So it looks more like I froze in time rather than being scared. But while being stunned like that my mind analyzes EVERYTHING. Thoughts are processed so fast that I even find the time to praise myself for analyzing everything so fast. That is "bullet time" for ya.

Then there is the automatic defense reaction.
Some very sudden noise scares me in the middle of the night while I'm outside? The entire "scare feel" rushes, but I automatically turn to the noise with clenched fists. Though I myself don't make any noise or scared expressions.
Then there is when the scare is at close range. Once I went around a corner while at the loft of my school(working on some horror movie project); some girls had sneaked up and went "whoa" to scare me. Barely a split second went by before I had the nearest girl in a frontal stranglehold.
But I quickly let go of her and started laughing.
But had she been something scary a zombie for example then she would have been flying down the stairs in a second.

So scaring me either results in you being scared because you think for a second that I'm about to murder you or the prank has a boring result because I have no visible "funny" reaction.

I really hope I'll never end up with PTSD DUH. That could end up being straight up dangerous for those around me.

Same, especially when it comes to my side below my arms.

I had finished some work at school and I had some free time, so I decide to take a nap on the desktop.

Bell rings and one of my class mates goes to wake me up because I slept through it. He proceed to press where my kidneys are at.

Defensive procedures kicked it and I immediately woke up and sock the poor kid in the stomach. I get really defensive if people I don't trust touch me there, especially more so when I'm asleep.

Well long story short I was pulled into the office and I explained the situation to the Principle, honestly I don't know why because after realizing what I had done I said sorry so many times to the poor kid, luckily the principle wasn't an asshole and let me go without any problems.

Jeez, u guis I'll never invite to a slumber party   :D  My house makes all sorts of weird noises, you'll wind up killing each other or taking out a wall.

I usually have no problems waking up, no 'lundge' feature.  But I will smack someone that touches me while I sleep, don't know why.  It's just an impulse I have.  I can initiate a 'shallow sleep' where I'm aware of my surroundings to some point, but time passes quickly and I lose a bit of contact with my surrondings.  When I wake up suddenly from thsi I'll have no idea who I am or where I am for a moment, it's creepy.  I think "What WAS I doing last."  But if i come out of it slowly, i'm fine, and I'll lift my head and glance around, commit on something from a conversation to one of my co workers.

But I do have a nasty temper people shouldn't test   :-\

I have a horrible memory, so I can't recall if this is addressed or not, but is Charlie restricted to a small area of ARC or can he wander about like the rest of the Zombie Hunters? He might get a little sympathy if his team mates are the only people he's allowed to socialize with.

If Charlie really wants to fit in with them, then I think the best thing he can do is give his team mates space and prove himself out in the wastes. It'll take a while, but nothing shows just how trustworthy you are like saving someone's hind-end. (Fast-forward to him saving Katie)

It remains to be seen (at least by us consumers of TZH) how "normal" a half-life is.  From what we've seen they are just that, a little bit alive and a little bit dead.  Hopefully for the future of ARC it will turn out better than being a little bit country and a little bit rock and roll.

Think it depends on the Vet but in geneal yeah, most will talk about things they LEARNED; or saw. They will not talk about combat situations they were in if they killed people, but this varies depending on their attitude toward it. One guy in my Japanese class met a South African mercenary who was pretty candid about what he did. War was his trade, he didn't seem to give a shit about killing people.

One guy I knew was in Cambodia, nobody, I mean NOBODY who knew him even seemed to know this, probably because it was A) illegal and B) he was sworn to secrecy about 99% of it. I was kind of suprised he mentioned it, other then him talking about how it sucked when he got back from the Tet Offensive right in time for the race riots of the late sixties.He wouldn't talk about that kind of thing but he would talk about gear till the sun rose and set and anything else mechanical, had a LOT of experiance with all the warsaw pact stuff too. (He was a machinist by trade.) His words to me were. "You've got enough guns, get yourself some damn ammo, put it on stripper clips and pack it on bandoliers, and get yourself a sling, saw the barrel down as short as you can get away with." 

Died of cancer a year or so ago, and going through his effects they found his Uzi had been rather illegally converted to full-auto. He was ready for the Zombies.  :chainsaw:

I'll never forget the little old man with half an ear who was a demonlitions expert par excellence. He got his first job at 12 when he snuffed out an oil fire with dynamite, used almost every explosive known to man including weird shit like Gun cotton. In Korea he was flown somewhere, he never knew where, planted charges and was flown back. He could have been Sammie's grandfather, easily.  :evil:

I'd assume once the virus died the regular microbes and bugs that decompose a body move back in.

And Charlie has never been exposed to this sorta nature, might not be since zombies ignore him (Unless the Red Halo starts hunting him).  It's kinda like a young person asking their grandpaw what the 'nam was like, they don't know any better.

In the FUTURE (without flying cars; you can either have flying cars or zombies in the FUTURE, never both) Katie does seem to be the one who trusts Charlie the most. Though having saved her life may have helped.


Also: the meds Katie received are probably anxiolytics. One side effect of them is disinhibition. In about 1% of case, what the brain is inhibiting is MADNESS (yes, the brain has defenses against itself) and the anxiolytics have an effect exactly opposed to what they're supposed to do. This is called a paradoxical reaction. If it's Katie's case, and she finds out by taking one in a panic situation, she could very well be the one who eats Milo!!!

Title: Re: Today's Comic
Post by: Greg on August 19, 2010, 08:49:28 am
yeaaahhh

The reason we picked the area we did, was because it would've had comparatively few people in it. Once the cars and trucks were stolen off the lot (we figured it would've been looted long before ARC came around), it would've been an empty concrete slab with a warehouse in it. Clearing the warehouse wouldn't have been much fun, but at least it's only one relatively open building.

A concrete slab with its own fence and a warehouse is a great building area for a base, though. Bring in some trucks and some gear, and you can do whatever you want with it.

It's kind of silly how much planning and modeling I wound up putting into the camp, given that really, you'll never see ALL of it in any detail- it's just the backdrop for the story that's really going on. But it was a lot of fun to be included in the story process :)

I can buy it.  chainlink is easy to maintain, cheap, and will hold off crawlers.  Some of Jenny's creations are a little more dangerous than cawlers.  The other thing is, large fields of view and a helicopter will allow them to escape in a worst case.

Title: Re: Today's Comic

The other thing is, even if they do need nourishment, we still know they can hibernate for long-enough-to-be-undefined time periods. Maybe the ones with damaged guts just haven't starved to death yet.

 :evil: <- I advocate for dis guy.


Title: Re: Today's Comic
Post by: DoctorVeR on August 25, 2010, 10:46:22 pm

Prolly the zombos with their guts everywhere but their abdomen are the ones with extensive decay.  Also, when things rot don't the guts go first?  That might explain why some zombies look completetly horrifying, the buggers didn't get nourishment in time to preserve the ol' innards   :-X

So let's review, taking out a zombies guts it like cutting a roaches head off.  The body will survive till it starves - the zombie will gnaw anything until it starves, slips into hibernation and Idunno, wakes up when someone comes around and gnaw on them.  Doesn't do it much good, it's just the brain trying to survive.

Which brings about that ancient old question, can a zombie head survive without the body?  And if so, for how long?

Post by: Flustrator on August 26, 2010, 10:23:02 pm
A human head can stay alive for about 2 or so minutes... when it's a quick, clean cut. The arteries vasoconstrict, holding the oxygenated blood in. Thus, keeping your brain alive.

You couldn't talk or anything super crazy like that. But you'd be conscious.

With Zombies, I'm not sure. It would have to actually happen.

Well if the brain is intact after decapitation, then I'm sure that a zombies head will still be able to live for a bit. Just stomp on it like it's come spider or something.

Basically it keeps words from running together in a wordbubble and it's easier to read, but not for the reasons you think. In lowercase typefaces you have letters that dip below the baseline like y, j, q, p and that can interfere with the other words underneath. By having your text in all capital letters they are all the same height so you can manipulate the leading and kerning to fit more into the wordbubble without it looking clusterfucked :)

At least, that's why I do it xD
ALSO it prevents the whole grammar issues or forgetting to put capitals in, it's just one less thing you need to worry about haha.

It's been recorded that disembodied heads have been "alive" for up to thirty seconds, but no more than that. An anatomist claimed that heads react to stimuli, with one turning it's eyes towards him 15 minutes after decapitation, so that might be the 15 minute thing Stan was talking about.

They beheaded two monkeys and sewed the heads onto the other body.
The bodies worked and started functioning normally. Except for a hitch: Beheading means that you have to sever the neck. The monkeys were paralyzed neck down.
So yeah, when science figures how to connect/repair necks and spines that are broken to the point where you are paralyzed, not only will a lot of cripples be able to walk again, but you can technically get a new body.

Post by: Dodom on August 29, 2010, 04:58:26 am
They say that when beheading someone, the executioners in the old days would lift the head not to show it to the public, but to show it the public, so the people getting excited over their death would be the last thing they see.


As to how long they stay alive, braincells die in four minutes without oxygen, but consciousness lasts at most one minute. If the weather is hot, rigor mortis can set in in less than fifteen minutes, so I guess it could easily be moving at that time.

Dunno... maybe to get the zombies in a group so they could blow the area up? (just saw the explosion in the last panel)
Notice how one of the downed Red Halos have pulled out a grenade in the last picture we see them in.

Ah yes, wasn't sure if that was a grenade or radio/walkie talkie to signal a bomb strike.

Post by: Greg on August 30, 2010, 07:52:01 am
nah, that's definitely a "I may be about to die, but FUCK ALL'A YOUS!"

Also, judging by Megan's writing, they were attempting a salvage mission of some sort. Either that or a clearing mission. Dismounting to fight the zombies probably seemed like it made sense before everything went pear-shaped ;)

And really, even with the losses, the mission may have been a success. The implication has generally been that losing team members isn't uncommon at all- remember the canned speech that the dude gave to Milo and crew?

I think I'd rather blow myself up than be eaten by a pack of zombies too.
Hell, even in war, people would often have some sort of measure to kill themselves at any time. Just to avoid capture. But not because "capture would hurt the cause" but rather "I'd rather die quickly than to be tortured by ****".
This was quite true for German troops fearing falling into the hands of the NKVD (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/NKVD).
Instant death is better. Sometimes that measure would also be something that would take the bastards with them. Like a grenade stuck to your chest that can easily be activated with one hand.

No no no, that's very narrow minded.  Don't blow yourself up.  What if it's awesome being a zombie?

You don't know, being a zombie might be the best thing that has ever happened to you... it could happen, and don't you owe it to yourself to find out?   ;D

No, that's the bottom edge of their uniform top. They're wearing a gray top with a black load-bearing vest over it (though they don't carry much on the vest other than ammo, it looks like).

I'm not sure if the spit went through or just splashed or what, but either way, those guys weren't coming home alive, even before the grenade.

This train of thought makes me think about the bunker coats worn by the Red Halos in their first real appearance way back when.  Specifically, were those bad ass bunker coats spit resistant?  If not would ANY fabric resist the mighty spit?  Seeing how fast it ate through that cable the group was hanging from I almost would think not.

Desperate last stands are always a little depressing to me, I'm not sure what it is exactly. I think the letter as the background for epic scenes of zombie mayhem would be awesome and would deffinately fit the feel.

I haven't posted in this topic since I signed up...is that bad??


Title: Re: Today's Comic
Post by: BrainBlow on August 31, 2010, 12:00:24 am
The thing with "last stands" is that they are badass. But they are not badass in the zombie genre!
Why?
Because screaming like a little girl while chunks of flesh are being torn off you is not badass.
There is one way, however, and that RHO understood it: Going down with a bang!
Buuuuut preferably something a little bit more explodey than a grenade.


Title: Re: Today's Comic

So that last bit that Megan says, is that refering to his team being fragile like the Red Halos and Charlies main purpose is to protect teams in general?  Or, is it that most people (the Red Halos) are fragile and Charlie needs to protect that team because they are special?

Oh and Jenny, disembodied heads being kept alive has just set a new bar for disturbing for me.  *sarcasm on* thanks, thanks a lot, really needed that to sleep better at night.  *sarcasm off*

Against spankings. The uniforms were made for the cast of a massive porn shooting. If they weren't protected from the lashes, the actors wouldn't have made it through all the takes!


Seriously... my theory on the uniforms is that the A.R.C. existed before the zombie apocalypse and it employed a private security agency; perhaps it was already called Red Halo back then. They already had the material, and only needed to recruit more after they became the de facto rulers. They were already equiped with NBC gear because of the kind of place they were guarding.

The spanking porn industry saves the world?  First, I won't be surprised if we now see the come out as an actual movie in the next few months.  Second, I always had a feeling that would be the way it happened.  Third, I agree with Dodom, they are too "put togther" for it to have happened after the fact.

When the virus starts to inhabit the eyes (or whatever) it seems like the person will reanimate once the eyes are fully black.

I always will mention on a Monday update in the news if there will be a Thursday update ;)
Thursday updates will be a little sparse this month because of the book, which is in the tweaking stage-- all I need to do is add more extra content, have it edited for spelling, then it gets shipped off to the printers =D then HOPEFULLY everything goes smoothly from there, I want these things to be in peoples hands before Christmas :|

Stan, I definitely understand that feeling. Unfortunately, I can't promise we'll be able to get a place in a store near you- most distributors won't (or don't, perhaps from habit) carry webcomics. Once we get our ISBN later this month, I'll be able to shop the book around and see who is interested in carrying it, but at this point in time, all I can really say is that you can always get it online here, and we will almost certainly be listed on Amazon, as well.

Cheez, we are sorry it has taken so long to make. There have been a lot of lessons learned on this project- everything from funding to production schedules. At the moment, I'm having to see about breaking the order into two shipments, with the first batch sent via air freight, just to avoid even more schedule slip. So... that'll be interesting.

Our goal is to get our act together enough that we'll have book two out next year, without this year-long ramp-up period beforehand. (Our *very tentative* plan would be to go from preorder to release in six months, but the thing about deadlines... they make this funny sound as they go whooshing by...)

I remember I was in the anime/book/comic store "outland" when in Oslo and there I saw a couple of issues of FreakAngels and LICD.
So, some webcomics do manage in comic book stores.

Blind Ferret Entertainment (the company that LICD created to promote their work) is also five years older than Black Moth Design (the company we are creating to promote ours).

It takes a while to get on the distributor lists. We'll be doing our best to get the book pushed out to stores, but at this point in time, we simply can't promise that it will be available in physical locations near where you live.

Yeah, what if the fucker becomes a Howler or a Basilisk?
That would show a clear lack in the safety procedures.
The moment he turns, everyone could quickly be in grave danger.
Doesn't matter if there are three officers in the room if a Howler disables them unexpectedly.
And a basilisk... well that woman would be in immediate danger.

yess... i hate thought like that and checked back to see other peoples on it... it needed to be spun in a milo death theory!

the halo guy that is currently changing becomes a howler or basilisk and stuns and kills all near... with them changed the base falls apart.... zombie hunters are send to investigate milo explores with charlie and gets attacked and bitten by zombie megan and charlie takes em both out thus earning hate from jenny!

Cassadar summoned me to post a Milo Death theory after his:


That guy changes into a spitter but since there was another one in the area the Earth's crust is already weakened, and adding that one the acid melts all the way to the magma layer and a volcano erupts. The ashes rain down onto the ocean where Milo was skinny dipping. They mix with clay particles already in the water and form cement. Milo crawls onto the beach before drowning but is turned into a statue before he can find help.
On the plus side the cement beach makes an excellent seating for new docks if they come to be needed.

Its a comic, and in this case especially the style of drawing does not incite punctuality and exactness in every detail. While it does retain that certain sense of realism, its that funny little niche in between photorealistic drawing and completely cartoonish bauble that makes this comic so lovable.

In short, I dont care all that much if the little details dont follow real life counterparts that much so long as the idea is crystal clear ;)

I gotta say, I feel bad for the Red Halo lady whose friend just got zombified. Yeah, he would've killed and zombified everyone if the Doctor hadn't stepped in/someone else with half a brain hadn't shot the bugger, but man, I can't imagine something like that happening to someone close to me. I guess it just shows that you have to divorce your sense of humanity and compassion when it comes to them Ghouls, since they won't show you a lick of it in return.

I'm sure on the gun somewhere is the inscription "To Charlie with <3"   Though it's just common courtesy for you to probably carry a projectile weapon, especially if your a scientist.  I mean, no one would take the nerds seriously unless they did   :chainsaw:

I will freely admit the gun geek in me look a look and asked "what gun is that supposed to be, it doesn't have X and where is Y".  But that was after my initial reaction to the page.  Megan = badass, and it's because first and foremost she wants to keep people safe.  So, now I have to think about how concerned she is sending people out to the wastes on purpose, people she might actually care more about.

True add a little more of a concave curve to the trigger guard, the flashlight rail slots on the side and have the slide grip having vertical cuts instead of 45degree ones and it'd be pretty accurate for a comic.

Still it's good, rarely do I see someone draw a gun in a comic where you can actually tell what it is. although I'd expected something like a G26 compact on megan, easier to hide.


Title: Re: Today's Comic
Post by: Fisto on September 21, 2010, 12:51:05 pm
...But horrible to shoot with its small frame. Megan is a scientist after all, not a soldier, so she probably dont have that much experience with firearms in the first place, even though many if not most of the surviving people likely have a degree of experience with firearms by this point. And why would she need to hide her piece? I think it would be pretty standard issue to all personnel in the forward base to carry some boomstick for self defence.

The way this episode is built - people in great anguish with guns always at their hand's reach - makes me think there must be a hell of a lot of suicides and friendly fire. People losing it just one moment but having the means to carry it through before they have a chance to snap out of it.

It's like...this comic has...depth.  I don't know if I can handle such color, I'm just not prepared for this.  Is anyone else feeling overwhelmed by the sheer win of such down to earth dirty concepts like "i just can't"

The last panel, you can feel the gravity weighing on Megan as she must realize what Charlie, being what he is, is going through, and the aspect of his 'not knowing,' or his lack of exprerience with the damaged psyche.  I gotta lol when i think back to what Sammie said about breaking him

A.R.C. island's military sounds plainly vile. Hey, lets send half-trained kids to risk their lives for us and lets not equip them! Even in the case where they'd credit their gear or part of it (so they'd at least get the basics, but I got the feeling they don't even have that guaranteed) just picking whatever they prefer means a dumb team member making wrong choices endangers them all. Or not even dumb. Things that aren't structured are vulnerable to distraction.

I have a problem with it for an entirely different reason. Gather round it's story time!

I once bought a rifle from a shop that had tiled/hard floor. As I was browsing it occurred to me that the floor in front of the rifle/shotgun racks was pretty well covered in dents. It never clicked that Bubba and all 13 of his kids had been through those racks dropping the occasional rifle or shotgun. But most of the guns on the racks weren't any worse for the wear. So I figured what the hell and asked for a new boxed rifle (its model eludes me but I'm sure it was a Ruger). They come out with it and I pay and go home. Where upon the puzzle pieces fell into place with the dents on the floor and the mostly fine guns on the racks. They had been cycling the guns that got dropped back into their packages and selling them as new or "like new condition." That did not float with me or my father so, off we go to get this situation fixed. They didn't give me any hassle about giving me an actual new in the box rifle and, after another set of paper work, I brought my new rifle home.

I didn't own that rifle a year before I traded it off, and the shop I bought it from was only open 2 more years. Lesson learned: never shop at places that I don't know with dents on the floor.

You know, that's a good point, and one I hadn't even thought of. I tend to think of guns as being rugged, over-engineered things... but that's probably because I was in the Army, and all our guns were rugged and over-engineered, made by the lowest bidder for the sub-average high-school dropout.

In my experience around NC, most places that sell firearms lock up either the guns or the ammo, but usually have the other on open shelves. Probably just depends where you go.

The rifle that I was sold didn't have anything wrong with it aside from a really scratched up stock and barrel from getting dropped. I have no doubt it would've fired and been every bit as accurate as the one I got as a replacement. My issue with it was, it was supposed to be brand new factory sealed. If someone is going to scratch it up it's going to be me.

You know, I think the Half-life project was very wrongfully turned down.
What, you don't need "an army".
Just have a team of half-lives (5-6) and you could use them to clear out entire zones without casualties. The zombies don't give a care about their presence and therefore get slaughtered.
In fact, gun shots will attract more zombies, but these zombies won't attack the half-lives.
You could have municipality sized areas mostly cleared out in just a matter of weeks(add on some more time for sweeping the area multiple times afterwards).

"army" my ass.
I don't think concealing a handful of individuals would be that hard.


Title: Re: Today's Comic
Post by: Dodom on October 17, 2010, 01:14:29 pm
I think so too. Especially since, being safe from zombies, they could live on the main land most of the time, and the only obligatory contact would be for their food and maintenance.
Besides, if they're around long enough, people will get used to them. They'll be discriminated against like hell, but given the situation the effort of managing it would be worth it.

Post by: BrainBlow on October 17, 2010, 02:10:07 pm
No, it is more that since the zombies don't attack nor run away from them, the half-lives can just systematically and calmly go executioner style on the zombies.
Hell, one of them is probably going to have to stand behind the rest and constantly clean guns.

If one zombie qualifies for the half-life program, why not all of them?  The half-life program introduces the concept that they can be "saved".  Going executioner on them becomes a moral dilema.

Well, you have the disemboweled ones (and such) and then the fact that they can't "save" every zombie.

Of course, when I say "going executioner" then it is just going up to the zombies and shooting them. Same thing the humans do(minus that the zombies go after the humans).
Also, the whole "they are dead" thing.

Having Jasper so easily seizured like that gives him a very human quality, and makes him more suited to being related to.  I <3 it.  I also took note that whenever ever it seems he's crawling towards trouble, his teammates seem to bring out a gun, regardless his previous orders.  Does Sir Jasper have a lack common recognition in which he fails to realize he's pushing something/one, too far?  If so, it'd be a good sorta tidbit of history with his comrades....

"Public disturbance" is a very flexible notion, if you fall on a bitchy store owner, the fact that you didn't ask permission to assemble on his property could be ground for a complaint.
But it's not really a reason to worry because:
1- 99% of people will find that amusing.
2- 99% of the remaining 1% will merely ask you to leave.
3- 99% of the remaining 1% of the original 1% is already banned from courts for repeated frivolous lawsuits.
4- That leaves only Garry. Avoid him.

*Edit: We don't really know how long that individual was a zombie either. Outbreak could have been a decade ago(whichI didn't think it was in the comic, but I don't rememeber), but as long as there's survivors, there will be newly made zombies.

If you were bitten by a certain type of zombie like James was with the basilisk, would you turn into that kind of zombie?

Does it apply to other zombies?

It could be that there is a large, but finite supply of cola and cocoa (i.e. the Albatross made a run fully loaded with stuff like that), similar to the Earth's fossil fuels. There's a lot of em, but eventually, they'll run out. So for now, you can get a Jack and Coke and a small cocoa for $3.50 but eventually, down the road, commodities will become more scarce and more expensive and more dangerous to retrieve (a possible reason for the Forward Outpost?).

I don't know about that.
Last summer, I was cleaning through the seaside shack on our Island, I found an old can of Fanta. The can was unopened and... bloated.
I opened it up and poured the content into the sea. That was not Fanta leaking out of the bottle! That was some white abomination that looked like thick snot and pee!

I suspect people who think a major catastrophe magically makes emotions rational are either 14 years old, or stopped growing up at that age. Or maybe their experience of grief is losing a distant aunt they only saw on Christmas and family reunions who smelled funny and talked too loud, and think anyone more affected than them is weak.

Can't disagree with that. In fact, in a major catastrophe or in a post-apocalyptic world, loss of someone close is going to be a lot more emotionally devastating than in regular life.

While IU understand what you're saying, I'm an example of someone who consciously checks their emotions to keep things functional. Not required to be nice to people who don't when they don't need an excuse to be idiots. Oh, the joys of trying to not make things worse... Unfortunately, conflict rarely works well in my life.

Well, I just reread the James story, and Katie leaving him behind had nothing to do with his death. Fatty James stepped on a rat, freaked, and fell through a perfectly good floor. Katie gave Milo the rope, and while they were getting prepared, he got nommed. There was maybe 2 minutes between the fall and his death. There was nothing they could do, short of jumping down there themselves (or teach James to not be such a scaredy cat...). Yeah, it sucks what happened to James, but this is the Zombie Apocalypse lady, shit happens.

My Prediction: Sammy's gonna go berserk, and Mad Mommy is gonna be missing at least one tooth.
Alt Prediction: Katie grows a pair and tells it like it is and leaves, leaving both Mad Mommy and Sammy in stunned silence.

Actually, Katie had a pistol (http://www.thezombiehunters.com/index.php?strip_id=134) and could have shot the basilisk while its eyes were on Jameson; here (http://www.thezombiehunters.com/index.php?strip_id=153) you can see Katie pretty much leaning against a wall after Milo has the rope, and she's just listening in on Milo's conversation, so she had the time to watch him too. Also, while I remembered Jameson getting surrounded on that little shed, I didn't remember that apparently that was the first time Katie had left him. (http://www.thezombiehunters.com/index.php?strip_id=135)

It's interesting to see that early in the timeline Katie is mostly independent and expects others around her (mostly Jameson) to also be as such, but as the timeline progesses she becomes more dependent on her teammates.

As for greif F'ing with your emotions, it does.  I was someone who pretty much could swallow anything and keep going stoically.  But somethings go too far, you just can't keep it in check anymore.  For some people it's depression, for some it's rage, and some denial that can f*** with you other ways.

Katie is also 16. As if the Zombie Apocalypse wasn't enough, she already has a lot of emotional baggage under her belt. Leaving James was her equivalent to leaving one of her friends at the mall because they said something to her that she didn't like.

She got violent. This... probably isn't a good sign. As an aside, I usually feel more empathy for people out in nastiness than someone who's mad about said nastiness. Still, this isn't good. This means it's gone from grudge to hostility. Unless that hole causes some serious trouble, this will get messy. Though, the hole causing trouble would be messy. Maybe messier. In before body count.

What I'm thinking, is that Jameson's mom read the report that she left him on the dumpster, and assumed that when he fell through the hole, she and milo left him for dead.

If you notice, his pistol landed about 10 feet from where he did, so he crawled over to get it. In the scene right before he kills the mercy, you can see the hole he fell through framing the mercy's head, showing how far he moved. Since the basilisk came from behind him, it's unclear if Katie could have seen the basilisk or even heard any indication he was in trouble before it was too late, regardless of if she could have got a clean angle on it. Now as to why she wasn't keeping an eye on him, I think she thought "the guy broke his leg, he ain't going anywhere fast".

That's just my 2¢.

Maybe someone in their building was bitten and managed to hide it, and the resulting infection turned nasty and spread to a few others. An event like that would only reinforce distrust and paranoia. Actually, a bite wouldn't even be necessary, someone could have just keeled over and turned in their proximity and things got nasty. Perhaps even a few non-bitten people might have been shot in the confusion, and the scared larger population would look at it like, "Well they were infected anyway, it's what they deserve!

I gotta throw out there that if you're trying to look into a dark building, your eyes will never adjust to the dark enough that you cold see what's there.  Not even shapes.  We're not aware of how much light is getting into the building, as the reader, and Happy Meal prolly could see better being submerged in the dark.

And what good would it have done Katie being there, in the pit at all with Jame'? Join him in Seizure happy fun time when the Basilisk turns to her ar whatever he was up to?

Crazy Jmom is just going to have to settle with little Katie, take her back to her home, saw her legs off and take care of her for the remainder of her 'sane' life. 

Sounds like a fair trade...to me...I guess  >V> :humpingparrot:

that would give him som cred from the team!
Or even better give her a heart attack;
if so, i would laugh my ass off!

Oh, and to Lash2828 & BrainBlow:
4 Norwegians you say? I guess it is time for a
Scandinavia takeover then! So i will add add myself
to the newly formed Scandinavian Obedience Squad,
Also known as: S.O.S   :police:

Hey cat, Canadians rule these forums as we have Jenny on our side, also Pimp Ass Fuck HK, YutRecliner, myself, Stan and more.

Also, Sammie is gonna go beat the crap out of Jameson's Mom... hopefully.

Her hitting Milo the first time we saw her was rather telling of her willingness to get violent if James was around. Though, that's kind of an excellent motherly instinct sign. If not for her choices of reacting, it would be really heartstring tugging right now.

I think she might've been having what Sammie was getting   :P  Unfortunately she's sorta insane at the month.  I have this weird fear that someone will snare me while I'm at some random place and bellow, "YOU!"  Right before they start killing me.  All because of mistaken identity

Hmm.  Does anyone think she's mistaken Katie for James?  I mean, they're the same species and all...

While I thoroughly endorse the beat down we have to remember that the only one here is Sammie. Charlie, Maureen, Jasper and Milo are all in the gun shop, which could be on the other side of the markets for all we know.

My prediction is Sammie will push her away from Katie and ask wtf she thinks she's doing attacking a little girl. I can't forsee Sammie getting overly violet with the woman right away... then again, Jenny has surprised me before!

Eh, I approve of the beatdown.  She has it coming to her.  How would anyone feel if their child (or mom for those who cannot relate) was killed, read the report and read that the douche they were supposed to be with abandoned them for no reason?

She deserves a good beatdown.  For all we know James's mom now sits home alone with no loved ones left with nothing left do do but dwell on it.  Her reaction is natural.


Title: Re: Today's Comic
Post by: Sods on November 12, 2010, 10:55:17 pm
As was previously shown, James fell though a floor. The needed rope acquisition was the 'leaving him alone' you speak of. Everyone who looked into that hole but Milo got Basilisk'd rather quickly after. The only reason Katie didn't die too was Milo catching her before she fell. A beatdown may be coming, but who's preferably injured to me is no-one. Sadly, she hit Katie already. Woman needs to accept that her son died doing the same highly-dangerous stuff Her target is. Also, pretty sure when
(click to show/hide)
, Katie called down for the reason. Chances are, considering the situation, only people who saw those deadly eyes saw much of anything without being in that hole too. Dangerously emotional people help zombies more than people, ironically.


Title: Re: Today's Comic
Post by: Dodom on November 13, 2010, 06:21:02 am
Wait now, why would people say Katie did not screw up by leaving James alone???
She did it twice:
First in the streets where he got surrounded by crawlers (and it's rather likely that being alone in the middle of zombies on his first mission ever would contribute to him being so nervous later on) even if that time didn't get him killed, it did endanger him in an absurdly useless way.
Second when guarding the hole. You're supposed to talk to the wounded, to remind them they haven't been left behind yet, and to make sure they're still conscious. It's impossible something that basic would have not been taught to the zombie hunters.

There's also a team fail, because he was obviously not accepted into the team and in such a small group just one being cast out puts the others in danger as well. In the "present" part of the story, Jenny has become the team's leader despite not recognising Charlie as an ally, and they're still taking bets on whether Dan will die on his first mission or not instead of trying not to get buddies killed. They don't have a team, there's a gang of friends, Jenny, Sam, Katie and Mau (and Milo but only in the past), and others around that they won't let into their circle.
I hate myself for that, but I'm starting to agree with Jasper's cheap shot about how Jenny couldn't keep Milo from getting killed, everytime we see the team in action we see... something that isn't a team. Something disorganised, undisciplined and weak.
Jenny (author) has got her main characters acting kind of like movie badasses, but that leading to logical consequences (casualties, conflicts, penalties, etc), yet when some people hate some part, they hate the outcome while defending the long chain of events that caused them. In real life, you can't separate cause and effect like that, and Jenny tried to reflect that in her comic.

But I guess dangerously emotional people aren't comfortable with that notion :P

Title: Re: Today's Comic
Post by: Jenny on November 13, 2010, 03:35:02 pm
I get a lot of negative criticism on TZH (most of it being 'omg this is a Mary sue weeaboo(sp?) fap fest.', 'where are the zombies!!1??', 'You are ripping off L4D' and 'You're a femminazi!!') which is usually ignored and forgotten until it's up in my face again, I also get criticism on how slowly paced the comic is. Which, to me, rings true. Where it is fine (at least to me) in book format, as a webcomic? The slow updates don't fair so well compared to the ones that update on a more frequent basis. So I always try to cut as much unnecessary stuff as humanly possible to make the story go faster, and make every update count.

While I am not about to go back and change anything, I am just reflecting at how something can be perceived if you take out pieces of dialogue to condense into fewer comics to move the story faster. Since the part with James and the basilisk I have always been extra careful when I take out parts of the story to save time. It has been quite the learning experience.

If you look at the bottom of every news-post you can see the full script for each page, for what I had intended for the story:

http://www.thezombiehunters.com/index.php?strip_id=152 (http://www.thezombiehunters.com/index.php?strip_id=152)
James: [James see's his gun a little distance a way] Yeah, I got it. But I don't see anything its all dark.
Milo: Use your ears then. Stay calm, here. I am going to be right back, just stay calm. [turns to Katie] Keep away from the edge, don't want you falling down in there with him. [he hits his com unit. As he walks off Katie, sits by the hole]

Here, Katie was following an order, if the floor is weak enough for a person to fall through the area around it might be weak in other places around it as well (which is why they kept to the side). Milo didn't want to have to fish both of them out. Milo continues to talk to James while Milo is doing his thing. But in my haste to cut down the blah blah, that part got cut. My thought was "Oh the audience would know that you really shouldn't crawl to the edge of a collapsed floor" But not EVERYONE has been inside abandoned buildings or knows about urban decay. Which was an error on my part honestly. So coupled with leaving James with a pile of non threatening crawlers, makes Katie look like a crazy uncaring psychopath. Even more-so than Sam.

Which works, surprisingly. But not what I was going for haha.

I never put anything on the website that you HAVE to look at in order for the comic to make sense, I think that's stupid and insulting. Everything you need to know to enjoy the story is in the comic, if you wish to see whats in the extras, those are exactly what they are, extras.

It annoys me with people who complain about the "pace" of full-page webcomics when it at the very least updates weekly.
Seems like they missed the memo that webcomics such as Drowtales (http://www.drowtales.com/index.php) has TEAMS working shifts at each CHAPTER; being basically one chapter ahead all the time.
And the L4D thing? The whole L4D thing is what lead me to this webcomic in the first place.
I was at the L4D wiki and was trying to find info on the new Special infected when it was also written that some people have suspected that the producers of the L4D franchise had been copying "The webcomic: The Zombie hunters".
I was sold at "comic" and "zombie"  :eyeroll:

"'omg this is a Mary sue weeaboo(sp?) fap fest.', 'where are the zombies!!1??', 'You are ripping off L4D' and 'You're a femminazi!!"

Wow people who say stuff like this are morons (to put it politely).
-I really cant see anything mary sue about TZH at all. If you want mary sue go read about "ultramarines".
-I counted over 100 comic strips where there are zombies and zombie killing involved. Thats about a third of the comic so far and we all know the real story is with the survivors and not the zombies. So that is a plethora of zombies.
-That also always happens when there is a media giant like L4D. People assume it was their idea just because they heard it from them first. Its like saying that George Romero invented zombies just because his zombie movies were very popular. The same thing happened with that AMC tv show "the walking dead". Everyone was like "the hospital scene was already in 28 days later, he copied it." Even though he wrote it in a comic long before 28days came out.
-And we all know you not a femminazi.

Keep up the great work Jenny. My friends and I are loving the story progression and we dont find it "too slow" or anything like that. The majority of webcomics I read are weekly. There will always be critics but at the same time you will always have your fans. So dont listen to the critics unless they have something objective to say. Personally I love the story and the realism involved. Its pretty obvious the lengths that you have gone to to ensure that every detail is accurate.

Also I think people are being pretty harsh with Katie both in comic and in the real world. She is only about 15 or 16. It wasnt her fault that James died. Sure she left him but she knew he was in no real danger and nothing came from it anyway. In the end it was his own clumsiness that killed him. James actually really annoyed me. He had a gun so why wasnt he using it when he was surrounded by crawlers instead of whimpering like a child? James's mother is a coward as well so I guess it runs in the family. She is attacking the one person who she knows wont fight back. Also she already hit Milo so why isnt out of her system?

Eheh, this could be a silly insert (like what happens a lot in Girl Genius) a few pages detailing zombies going about their zombie business. A building collapses, the noise attracts the zombies around and they climb on each others trying to get there first and bite the ones that "get in the way" and stuff... we could see more of how they behave. By example will a berserker attack a crawler when it finds no humans?
It could actually be an interrestinc concept, and if Jenny had some silly ideas involving zombies that would have broken the mood during the real storyline she can dump them there!

But not EVERYONE has been inside abandoned buildings or knows about urban decay.

This is the exact reason why most authors write with an "intended" audience in mind and at the same time try to balance accessibility to everyone else. 

I think you should hirer a few staff artists and have 3 or 4 parallel story lines going on.  With you staying as the writer and art director to keep the creative integrity.  Setup a little studio, lease out the publishing rights to a few places like movies, tv, video games. THZ can be the franshise of the 20'teens' like Star Wars was for the 80's.  And I really want to see a THZ Christmas special on par with the "Wookie Family Christmas" from 1978 or 79.

Stan: you can compete exactly because yours won't be the same story and the same people can like both for different reasons.


Also about the coloured lenses: I think a bunch of junk would be looted because looking through boxes would take more time than picking them all. They have a pretty big boat, it's not like room was an issue (though if they loot for vehicles and other large stuff it would fill up faster). Lets say they raid a drugstore. That's an excellent target for medicine, hygiene products and other essentials. That's also a source of make up and fake jewels. But picking things off the shelves would be inefficient, it would be faster to pick the boxed stuff in the backstore. Well picking them all could very well be the most efficient way to go, and the people get random luxury items without wasting productive forces on making them.
(Though speaking of productive forces, if most manufactured objects are looted from the wastes, there must be very few industries on the island. Unemployment could be one of their major problems. Or management may like it that way because that will pressure infected kids to join the zombie hunters, and keep the populace worried about something else than hey why don't we have a democracy?)

Now I'm wondering what happens if someone who has a breakdown is reported. Because someone would understandably get away with an incident like that - not that it's right, but most people would react bad like it or not - maybe with a restraining order or a condition to see a shrink, being reported wouldn't be a big deal.
But maybe the ARC considers people who eventually snap to be too dangerous to the community... maybe something happens to them... maybe Charlie will report it but get some sentences mixed and the Red Halo thinks Milo is the one who broke down and this is what finally happens to him...

Maybe the reason they report these little emotional outbursts is primarily for infected, it could be a side effect of the virus' effects.  No, you're not turning 'cause you're a little cranky.  But I'm sure there are those 'precautions' with any such carries of appocalypto disease.  Or for an unaffected civlian, rash behavior may indicate infection and tests are to be done.  yay testing   O0

Or they're afraid they'll commit suicide. Hide in their enemy's barrack and commit suicide, turn and eat the first person who comes in, which is totally not the person they hoped to kill, and bite a couple more, and some freak out and WOULD eventually admit that they've been bitten but not immediately because they're busy crying in a corner, and they turn too, and eventually the Red Halo comes and in the confusion kill a bunch of healthy (if infected) civilians along with the zombies and bitten victims (Milo is one of them of course) and you've got a few more traumatised time bombs waiting to break down in their turn.


Also, how is Milo pronounced?
Me-low or mile-oh?

I just wanted to say that you've bumped up a few notches on my 'omg you're an amazing author/artist/creative person" meter. I always have to say something when I see people properly using "all right" (as Anne says it) rather than the incorrect "alright." I know that languages evolve and commonly-accepted errors can become "proper" variations in their own right but it never ceases to astound me how many people do it with this particular phrase.

Oh no, this is the basic immigration 'run around.' Average time it takes for spouses to immigrate into the US (to get the I-130 visa which is the Green Card via getting married) is approximately 2-3 years.

Needless to say the immigration system is quite broken.

So I know from the Cast Bios that Katie posseses some very handy skills for the team, but this stretch of story, coupled with the 2 looks we've gotten of missions, and the motherly treatment she gets from Megan seem to make her pretty high maintenance.  I'm hoping this is all building to some "secret" about Katie, or she really gets to shine soon.  

Just me?

@Jenny.  regarding the visa situation, you aren't alone, I've known other people who have slogged through the same mess to get here.  Hang in there, it's worth it for the football alone! I for one will see what I can do to get as many people in government to be TZH fans, that would certainly speed things along.

Eh, that style has a charm of its own, and the imperfections are just reinforcing the feeling of spontaneity that makes it funny.


Also, because I can't post in this thread without a Milo death theory:
Mau doesn't go and kick the woman's ass because while she talks big to make Katie feel better, she's too sane to actually do it. But Sam isn't. She beats her up and accidentally kills her (people have that habit of resisting insane injuries sometimes and dying from a broken nose some other times) and just leaves the scene not to be caught. Zombie hunters and Red Halo officers have to search the island after zombie Jameson's mom is sighted (by the way we haven't seen a howler yet; well that's her) and Milo, Jenny and Charlie find her together. She howlers them unconscious (turns out Charlie is vulnerable to howlering) and since a zombie only eats one person at a time (really, they'd be way too greedy otherwise) she only eats Milo. Charlie wakes up first and kills her, but in his howlered-disorientation misses several times and have no bullet left to finish Milo off. As Jenny wakes up, he goes zerker mode and finishes Milo in the most gruesome way under her eyes.

Maybe I'll theorise about ARC's dark secrets, or maybe not. :P
"Dodom must post a death theory in the Today's Comic thread" is a rule that I made, I can unmake it too!

(and a variant of that theory was that Charlie, not fully understanding humans yet, thinks he would please the others by killing the lady himself since she threatens them; the rest of the theory goes like the other version, she comes back, blabla, also since now it's his fault that she's a zombie it's not necessary for him to touch bitten Milo for Jenny's hate for him so much later)


Title: Re: Today's Comic
Post by: DoctorVeR on December 04, 2010, 05:28:39 pm

I can see that.  While running through the halls avoiding the zombie invasion of ARC labs, Charlies stops in front of a door that reads along the top 1-7.  Charlie looks at his wrist, at the number 8, and enters....

To discover tubs with zombies inside, along the walls, each numbered - 1, 2, 3...they're all Charlie clones in different stages of 'zerker rage. He gets to the back room and on a bed is...

Cackling Charlie clone asking him "Why so serious?"

Guys.

Is it possible for people to stop bashing the lady? Especially since I perfectly see where she's coming from?

You guys are acting as if parents should just suck it up when their child dies. That they shouldn't be grieving. And that they should be all cake and candy around those they - rightly or not - feel have responsibility in their child's death.

Good utopia. Life doesn't work that way.

The thing is, Katie isn't to blame for the situation James found himself in, but lets be honest: he was an inexperienced kid compared to her, and she once just left him because he was annoying. Her track record is by no means spotless.

Katie got the rough side of the deal in this, because she became the focus of the parent's anger. Its worse because she's pretty much the only one who isn't psychologically able to take it.

Its unfortunate. But I don't get why people are intent on hurting or shooting a parent for taking what was an irrational action from an understandably grief-shrouded mind.

Lets have a little bit of empathy, people, before we start having a contest on how to best show cruelty to a grieving person and thus make things worse.

There was no bad guy here. So lets stop treating the poor woman like one.

well put.  I tried not to jump on the Jamesmom bashing train.  I thought she might get a beat down from the dysfunctional group of social misfits, but not because I think it would have been justified, or that her grief isn't consuming her at this point.

My honest opinion, let some of the greiving parents loose on the zombies and see who comes out on top.  The movie Taken is a great depiction of parental rage in my opinion.

We're expecting the book to arrive at our office sometime around the 14th of January. Can't guarantee the date because our shipment may (like everything else) wind up stuck in customs or something. We expect it to get to the US on the 7th, so we're allowing an extra week for murphy's law.

So really, the only holdup at that point will be waiting for Jenny's arrival. With an interview on the 7th, that should be the last of the immigration holdups... but, we'd still have to wait for her completed documentation to arrive in the mail afterwards. They claim that takes a week or so, which would mean that her documents would get to her near about when the books arrive down here. At that point it's just a question of getting her to NC. Then she'll sketch and sign everything.

If you get deployed or move or whatever, just let us know what your new mailing address is and I will happily send it there. I've got a lovely spreadsheet of all the address changes.

Don't say you could do it if you're too lazy to do it!
Be existentialist: if there is any reason that establishes you won't do it, then you can't do it. By example, "I can write a novel but I don't have the time" is false, you can't write it since you don't have time.

On the comic: All I have to say is "Sha-WING!" As far as I'm concerned, the image on the TZH main page changed and it wasn't a previously posted image, therefore it was an update, and your 4+ year streak is conserved.

Someone told me Canadians didn't have to pay for healthcare.  I take it they were full of it.

On the plus side, No Syphilis, so that positive... I guess.  That's a concern I've never thought of before.


Title: Re: Today's Comic
Post by: Greg on December 27, 2010, 10:19:32 am
Canada does have a national health insurance plan, but there are some things (like several immunizations, oddly enough) that aren't covered. They also have a major shortage of doctors, which is why you'll hear about people going to the US or europe for treatment sometimes. But that's another issue, and probably related to compensation (or the lack thereof).

A big chunk of the money, though, goes to the doctors performing the exam for immigration. (That's a fairly reasonable exception from the national health plan- why pay for your citizens to go through a process needed only for the purpose of leaving the country?) The immigration exam is a special extra that is different from your regular checkup, which is why it had to be done in Toronto- there are only four locations in Canada that are licensed to perform it. And Toronto, for all it's a day's drive away, was the closest.

All in all, the bureaucratic hoop-jumping is eating up a hell of a lot of otherwise-usable time. And money. But, you do what you gotta do.

As long as they have their own currency it can work. It wouldn't work if they used pre-apocalypse money, because it would be too easy to loot in large quantities from the wastes and cause uncontrolable inflation that people would blame on Zombie Hunters and get angry and attack Milo in a corner and sell his flesh on the black market.

I agree with Greg, why wouldn't they use money? It's a simple universal thing that has value in every situation. You might not be able to pay for your engine repair or hunting vest with chickens (or other bartering services). All imports from the wastes are screened, so any money they bring back goes straight into the government's coffers. Pretty much every human civilization has had some form of universal currency, be it shiny rocks, or pieces of paper.

Though like modern day counterfitters, there's a problem with getting your illegal money into circulation. Even if you stuff a couple of thousand dollars between yer tits people are gonna wonder why you all of the sudden have a couple of thousand dollars more than you did yesterday.

Regardless of what they use for currency, I still think they have currency of some sort, given that Sam bought a hot chocolate and a rum and coke from a streetside vendor.

About Katie's coin, there's some chance she could just have a quarter from before the world went to crap. Gumballs may last a while and zombies that aren't Berserkers probably have no interest in the machines. And Berserkers just care that they can ram heads into them. Probably mistaken, but there you go.

Sugar and other raw ingredients can probably be found though. As long as it's dry sugar won't spoil. And they probably do loot food depots from large groceries chain stores, because they're designed to provide ideal storing conditions. The refrigerated parts would go to waste, but as long as the building doesn't collapse (and it looks like the apocalypse happened only a few years in the past, buildings don't decay significantly in that time, at least not the well designed ones) most of the rest should be fine for a long time.

Perhaps they just use money like us? They find some, bring it through quarantine, ARC takes it. Then after that they get salary and bonuses based on what they bring back.

ooh, this line of thought raises the intriguing question as to whether anyone has harvested nuclear warheads to try to use them as reactor fuel. I'm not sure if it's even possible, but.... someone might at least *think* it was.

The entertaining thing about that is that there might be large swaths of wasteland that genuinely are radioactive, from catastrophic failures at the attempt. Slipping with a cutting torch and puncturing a missile body full of fuel would probably end poorly.

I don't think I've ever seen any rank insignia on the Red Halos (just went back an looked through some panels and couldn't spot any).

That was my theory, but I must have phrased it poorly because people seemed to take it as "money is unfeasible". :c
Wasteland money too easy to smuggle in ==> print own money.

Also after too many people figure out how to counterfeit the ARC currency, they use rare blood types as currency. Zombie Hunters need transfusions often after workplace injuries, you see. And Milo is a convenient O-, so the poorer ARC citizens corner him and steal his blood and that's how he dies.
(that would be a question: how do the poorer ARC citizens live? Do they end up in a kind of organised slavery, is there welfare for the ones who have some disability or young children, or are they left on their own to catch and spread tuberculosis among the population? How about the old?)

Yes, Jenny and I are married. No, I'm not in the comic. I started helping out on the website sometime in 2006. Jenny and I started dating sometime in 2007, I think it was. We got married in 2009. :)

We don't tend to advertise the particulars of Jenny's life on the forum because she's got enough stalkers as it is.

I manage most of the physical aspects of the business; the manufacturing (mostly contracted out) and shipping of most of the items in the store. I also handle the website. Basically, if something goes wrong, either with the site or with the store, I'm the guy you email.

I hope that answers some of your questions :)

Most medical websites are for the general public and don't go in depth, they're usually accurate, but imprecise and sometimes outdated. Once you know the basics of a topic and wish to know more about it, I'd say first wiki it to make sure you know the related vocabulary (not to read a specialised text and be unable to understand it) then move on to more specialised websites, though the overview one gets from Wiki is often quite thorough.
I'm specially fond of this one: http://library.med.utah.edu/WebPath/ (http://library.med.utah.edu/WebPath/). It doesn't have that much in terms of explanations, but it has plenty of pictures to see what the other sites describe.

I'd have to spend so much time I don't have to write a Novel. Which sucks because I do enjoy reading, a lot.

I thought that was Mandy who said that?

After rereading the "Heeerreee's Charlie" scene, it seems eating normal food does nothing for him. Meaning he can eat it, but it doesn't contribute any nourishment like the infected-tissue+blood smoothie does, but at the same time doesn't harm him either, so I s'pose he can eat people food to maintain his cover.

I like the fact that the team isn't keeping tabs on Charlie like his a precious item.  The fact that most of the time they really would like little or nothing to do with him.  It also sets up some of the tension for later *sarcasm on* calm discussions *sarcasm off* between the group.

I feel like I should point out that it IS a zombie story... typically for the genre, the entire CAST is wearing a red shirt, or the entire cast minus one, depending if Jenny decides to play it true to either of the traditional tropes.

We know Milo's not coming back at some point. But we don't know how many of the other crews will bite it on this mission. The fatality rate for noobs is implied to be quite high, but we don't know about the rest of 'em yet. Do they lose half the crews? Or lose only a few?

Makes me wonder what level of losses would be sustainable. They need the salvage, all right, but with a population of around 5K, they probably can't afford to lose, say, ten people a week to the wastes... because that winds up winowing out a tenth of their population in a year.


Title: Re: Today's Comic
Post by: BrainBlow on January 25, 2011, 06:22:38 am
A species need about 10 000 individuals to manage to survive properly.
So...
Sure, in small corners all around the world in the TZH universe there is probably collectively well more than that. Though that doesn't help if there is no way of interaction.
But, as the comic implies, population numbers are growing.


Title: Re: Today's Comic
Post by: Gromitooth on January 25, 2011, 09:55:07 am
Which is why ARC can't support them anymore, why can't ARC just like send a cleanup squad to some islands and then some of the people from ARC could choose to live there? Is that the main objective of that base that, Charlie's friend is at?


Title: Re: Today's Comic
Post by: BrainBlow on January 25, 2011, 10:41:11 am
There aren't necessarily many islands (at least ones possible to live on) within an acceptable radius of ARC for them to do that.
And islands that are in the region could be so close to the mainland that the chance of zombies being able to reach through water would be too high. And building barriers like those ARC has isn't exactly easy when your resources are as scant as that.


Title: Re: Today's Comic
Post by: Fisto on January 25, 2011, 02:13:26 pm
I still cling to my mad hope that the comic ends with a lone survivor listening to a radio transmission from Europe or somplace else far away:

"Dudes, we totally got you! Theres never been an outbreak here!"

Well anyway, back to the latest:

Thinking Charlie has more conversational talent than myself, I seriously need to check my pulse and make sure I aint bitten yet. Makes me wonder how much of their original personality is preserved after zombification.


Title: Re: Today's Comic
Post by: Sods on January 28, 2011, 12:22:46 am
So, Charlie is pushed around by his team. Sorta. He dislikes it and it confuses him, but he can handle it. He's ready for his first mission!

I have a feeling being pushed too far is in Charlie's future. As a Berserker, getting too into a nasty fight might push his sanity over the edge. And insane semi-Zerker Charlie might kill someone. Like Milo. Which would make Jenny hate him forever...


Title: Re: Today's Comic
Post by: TheLastOutlaw on January 28, 2011, 08:05:24 am
If Jenny blames Charlie for Milos death it's in an indirect way.  If he directly killed Milo with his own two hands I can't picture Jenny NOT killing him right then and there.  Also I can't picture picture ARC sending him out with the same team afterward.

I can see that, but IF Charlie had killed Milo then ARC would more likely send him out with a different team.  Milos old team wouldn't have shrugged and "followed orders" they would have shot Charlie in the back of the head as soon as they were back in the wastes.  Or has the team struck you as being models of discipline?   :laugh:

I agree completely.  My only point was ARC has priorities that may not match those of any paricualr individual, even those in ARC associated with the half-life project.


Title: Re: Today's Comic
Post by: Sods on January 29, 2011, 01:09:20 am
Revenge. That one is a motivator likely to get messy. You have a point. Charlie would likely have a shovel to the brain if he killed Milo. Which makes the mystery deeper. Jenny later doesn't seem much fonder of Charlie than now, so the cause probably earned him no points with her...


Title: Re: Today's Comic
Post by: Dodom on January 29, 2011, 07:01:34 am
You can hate someone for something he did to someone that is completely unrelated to you, only a sociopath would be indifferent to anything not affecting them directly. If you saw your neighbour molesting his own daughter, I'll bet you wouldn't walk past and say Hi! Some people would be too cowardly to denounce him, but at the very least they'll never like him.
So Jenny can have seen Charlie do something evil to a perfect stranger and still have understandable motives to hate him. Maybe a wastelander is killed in a rescue mission and he begins to eat the body... maybe he goes berserker on a dog (abusing animals for no good reason also tends to anger people) maybe he steals from another team while on that boat and they suffer casualty due to missing important equipment during their mission... maybe she walks in on him having sex with Megan and she finds the notion of half-life sex utterly revolting...

Title: Re: Today's Comic
Post by: Greg on January 31, 2011, 09:05:19 am
Well, the trouble with dumping trash in the ocean is that it inevitably winds up on your beaches. Also, it can kill the fish and other marine life.

Fishing is probably one of ARC's major sources of easy protein, so polluting their surrounding waters would be pretty bad for them.

Also, dem books is heavy thangs.

I know, I know but It's still short sighted for a Island community to dump their waste in the ocean, epically when it was stated that some of it (if not all of it) was toxic.

As I'm part of a numerous society, I do everything that's reasonable not to pollute or waste resources. If I was the last human on earth, I'd know I couldn't damage nature even if I wanted to. And if I lived on a twice as densely populated world, I'd have to try at least twice harder not to waste. I don't expect someone who denies the first to get the second. Ecology is a complex subject and it takes simplistic thinking to assume that such an important parameter as population density is not important.

Given that ARC population is about a thousand and the rest of the world is assumed to be depopulated, they should mostly care about their immediate environment; the docks are the worst place to clutter outside the island itself. (and since they aren't being maintained, they'll eventually erode and everything on them is going to end in the ocean anyway) And if they didn't throw toxic chemicals separate from the domestic waste, that's a level of fail I don't want to touch, regardless of where they've dumped the bulk of the junk.
Actually, if they were to act eco friendly, the zombie hunters would be sent out to every factory that uses a significant amount of chemicals or fuel and inspect them regularly to reduce the risk of massive catastrophes starting from them. And I don't see a management that doesn't bother to maintain its own barracks' roof spending that much ressources in securing buildings they don't use at all.

Post by: Greg on February 06, 2011, 08:12:08 pm
mm, my comment there would be that first, their population is a bit over five thousand, not one... Five thousand people on a fairly small island can make enough waste to seriously fuck up their surroundings. As far as the exploding factories around the world goes- I get the feeling that it's not so much a concern for the global ecology as it is a very simple 'don't shit where you live' philosophy. They may not be able to pollute all the lemurs out of existance on the other side of the world, or conversely, couldn't have the manpower to prevent it if it's going to happen anyhow... but they can still kill or clean their very immediate surroundings.

As far as dumping trash on the docks, it's one of those things that's easier than making two trips with the ship. Fuel's come up as a limited resource before. No point in having it make two trips that each have an empty leg of the journey, if you can do one that's full both ways.

As a final note, they may simply figure that by the time they've covered any given pier in waste, they'll have already stolen everything of value in the area. Or they may just be shortsighted. People *are*. It's entirely possible that they're making the wrong decision, or not correctly evaluating their cost/benefit ratios.

Jenny makes Thursday updates when she has the time. When there aren't, that's because she can't. I suppose if you sent her a bucket of money she could afford more free time :P (please send unrolled pennies; we want a laugh out of it too)


But then she might drop the pennies on the draft of a coming page and they CRUSH MILO!!!!! O:

That is one of the more awesome death theories I've seen :) Kudos to Dodom!

As far as the thursday updates, we're looking to get back into those tentatively once the sketch editions are finished (Jenny is slaving over those as I write this).

That said, if you want to send money, we're always happy to get it  O0

Speaking of money, you could buy a book! If you would like to get a book without waiting for slow ol' Jenny, you can order one now, and I will pop it in the mail right away!

You know, I don't think I've seen anywhere that actually says "We dump it yurr and it stays yurr." For all we know, the ship could vomit trash onto the docks, then a bunch of infected workers take it elsewhere.

We'll be making some more changes later this week, to continue improving it. But if you find any problems, or see anything you'd like updated, let us know!

In the meantime, tomorrow we shall continue going through books. I gotta apologize- this has taken longer than we thought; we're having to give a detailed inspection to the entire shipment, on account of finding some problems with the gloss on some copies. Some books have been shipped already, and we'll be sending more out as we can.

And, with as much as Jenny was giggling when making this page, I'm gonna say 'probably', but it's nominally from a TV show that she and Rose watched as kids. The Animals of Farthing Wood, or something like that. Apparently in the show their woods got torn up for a development of some kind.

...I guess the zombies have since gotten to it.

I would think so- by now he probably has a pretty standard patter that he reels off to any of the new kids. Most sergeants I knew in the Army had a few variations on that, depending on the task at hand.

Also, now that I've talked to our printers... Part of the reason that we've taken so long with these books now that we have them in hand, is because we're having to cherry-pick the lot, for the books that will go out as sketch editions. We've had an unusually high failure rate in the shipment, in terms of gloss problems on the cover or damage from shipping. Our printers are being absolutely wonderful about taking care of this, but it has definitely slowed things down for us here- we've gone through over a thousand books just to find the ones that will make up our preorders.

So for those of you who haven't got your preorder yet... it's on the way, we swear. And we're hand-picking only the very best of the books for you :)

We had such threads in the zombie section previously (I didn't check, but the latest might still be saved) and when there are enough new members to get a healthy harvest of ideas, it's time to create a new one. If you have ideas ready, you can go start it right now, as you like.

Not yet- we're sending them out as she gets them done. We were wildly over-optimistic about how fast and easy that would be.

At present I'm literally surrounded by packing materials at my desk here- I've got about fifty more books ready to go out today, but it's not going as fast as we had anticipated. Customs forms are a real time-killer, among other things. We're starting to see why other comics get together entire teams of volunteers for New Book Week.

Also, while everyone here on the forum is a truly awesome, memorable person... I can't actually answer the question as to when anyone's book is going to get there, for the simple reason that you're all here using an alias, and you ordered your books with your real name.

Heh. Crawlers. Spitters, at first, and Howlers at least make some amount of warning through sound. Hunters and Basilisks sound like the sort of thing not to try messing with alone. Hoping they don't meet a Berkserker. Especially not one on fire. Or in bed with someone's mom.

You can tell that it's the past because Charlie hasn't worried about a harmless sound causing Milo to be distracted from a real sign of danger and getting absurdly killed yet.


Title: Re: Today's Comic

I can't stop thinking the next panel is Charlie is pushing someone into the zombie as if to be prank, but really way out of line. 

And that brings up a new Milo death theory....see you in the other thread...

Yea zombie killin'!!!!

A lot said in a few panels and no dialogue (not counting "Rah" and "Hurr").  The last 2 panels are excellent.  Great motion captured, and the finality of the bouncing skull.  I can't quite place it, but somthing seems off in the 3rd panel.  I like the idea of it.  If it were film I imagine it would be the slight tightening of her grip.  Great update though.


Oh, and I think Greg is represented by the shovel.

Title: Re: Today's Comic

Calling him Chuck is a good sign. Charlie's past as an undead Badass probably helped keep a zombie hunter from ending him. Sort of a positive.

Something tells me Chuck isn't as forgetful of his old self as he's made out to be. Which leads me to point out that there is a rather obvious counterexample to Sammy's statement that "These things aren't people anymore", the person she was directing that sentence to.

Or does the zombie evolution go something like this:

Human (person)
 ||
 || (gets infected)
 \/
Infected (still a person)
 ||
 || (dies)
 \/
Zombie (NOT a person)
 ||
 || (super awesome serum therapy)
 \/
Charlie (person?)

So we see that Sam at some level has accepted Charlie as something more than zombie, as is also evident by using "Chuck".  I read into this that Jenny is also making the statement, "watch it zombie-guy, this is what the shovel can do."

Anticlimatic~> Milo has his head melted off by random spawning Spitter behind Door No.1    Charlie is so traumatized he runs away, leaving the others to hunt him down, whilst Spitter and horde of Crawlers rip Milo's twitching corpse to pieces and begin to nom on him.  When the others tie Chuck up and drag him back to reclaim the remains of Milo for burial, there's not left but his shoes and some scraps of his shirt.  Jenny never forgives Chuck...  then they all go out for spaghetti night to celebrate finding the last melon

I absolutely love all three facial expressions in panel 3, Jenny. Jenny loses a little of her hardness as she watches Milo, and even Sam does as well. Maybe I'm reading too much into the faces, but I get the impression that both admire Milo when he's leading. Charlie still looks out of his element, with an expression of trepidation but not terror. I should really say all 4 expressions, as the bear hat looks determined and ready for action.  ;D

Chuck Norris (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AN2Bx_LK2io&feature=related)

Simply the music and words alone should defeat the grue. The picture included will turn it to dust. An actual appearance of Chuck Norris... (trailing off)

In other news:

True, a Chuck Norris would definitely trump a grue.

And your proposition for Charlie saves the day is interesting. I don't recall whether Basilisks can freeze multiple people; do they have to make eye contact or do you just have to look at their eyes? But it's a very interesting question.

And then Milo is so full of admiration and gratefullness that he falls in love with Charlie, and Jenny kills him out of jealousy, but when she snaps out of it her mind can't aknowledge what she just did and thinks it's entirely Charlie's fault.

Death by door.  Usually, this sorta thing only happens in high schools or junior high.  Man, I miss the ill instructed fucked up offspring of baby boomers!   Best ten years of my life.

Place you bets.  The zombie type is...  I'm going with Hunter.


Title: Re: Today's Comic

I would've said hunter, since Milo didn't hear anything when he pressed his ear against the door, but then again...I thought hunters were much more graceful than HURRGRAH GET ME OUT OF HERE

Jenny thinks Milo being killed by a door a funny?  How sad.

So I read the update, then read Jenny's comment and then read the update again.  The second time through I noticed that the maintenance guy looks a little like Bill Murray and all I could think of was him from Caddy Shack.

Back home for three days of additional vehicle training...

Im wondering if Charlie is biologically able to soil himself if he gets really upset? He just looks like he may do just that :D

Also. I too would like to be killed by a door.


Title: Re: Today's Comic
Post by: Dodom on March 28, 2011, 09:23:32 am
I'll go for howler or berserker. I don't imagine crawlers yelling.

Also no Milo death theory. Not when there are immediate options that make actual sense!
(though it would make sense too if Milo had a temporal artery aneurism and the facedoor bursts it and his tongue swells with blood until he can't breathe right?)


Title: Re: Today's Comic
Post by: Log! on March 28, 2011, 01:07:03 pm
I'm definitely betting for berserker. Howlers act like crawlers, if I remember correctly, and I can't imagine a crawler slamming open a door like a drunk.


Title: Re: Today's Comic
Post by: Fiveofclubs on March 30, 2011, 09:26:15 am
I think berserker too, or maybe a really ambitious crawler.  Regardless, I think it's going to be an ex-zombie in 2 panels.  The big question will be who gets the kill.  I'm going with Sam because of the range of the shotgun over the shovel, Charlie seems a little stunned to act (and there's my double agent theory).

Title: Re: Today's Comic
Post by: CheshireCat on April 02, 2011, 05:45:46 am
I'm going to put a guess in on Hunter due to the lack of Zerker grin another mentioned, though I did think Berzerker at first. But a Hunter springing out of ambush could fit, as well as explaining the lack of any sounds from within when he was listening.


Title: Re: Today's Comic
Post by: Jetraymongoose on April 02, 2011, 09:38:01 am
I say Zerker. A Hunter wouldn't jump out in front of a whole group of armed people. As shown in the earlier chapter, Hunters like to sneak up on people and attack.

Aww, that's too bad. I imagine keeping a webcomic updated weekly is almost like a full-time job. And people with full-time jobs do go on vacations every now and then.

If the short story goes down well, we might ask for more. ;)

Of course! I should have known- she's going into Timmy's Withdrawal!

In all seriousness though- I've seen some of what we'll be running in the meantime, and I think that the short comic will be pretty enjoyable. I love the way Jenny's work runs, even in abbreviated form.

Also, a big thanks to everyone who has been picking up the merchandise. This is a huge help when it comes to replacing the computer hardware.

srsly tho, your viewers has already made it clear that taking off personal time is totally cool.  Your comic is wonderful, there are no demands we could make that you should fulfill, unless you feel obligated to.  In which case, we should be damn grateful.  Take things at your own pace, we're a bloodthirsty but loyal bunch of lunatics   O0

Hang in there Jenny!  And Greg too!

Hey do you guys need a line on getting work?  This is totally off the top of my head, but I buy a fair amount of RPG books (the paper and pencil variety).  There's a lot of smaller publishers (not WotC) that seem to be constantly hurting to find reliable artists.  I have no idea what sort of rates they are offering but it might be worth a look.

The company I buy most from is Hero Games.  You could PM either Darren Watts or Steve Long on their forums. (http://www.herogames.com/forums/forum.php)  Hero Games is also associated with Indie Press Revolution (http://www.indiepressrevolution.com/xcart/home.php).  (Darren Watts is, I believe, its president now.)  I'd think that you could hang out your shingle at Indie Press Revolution, which has many authors and companies, and get exposure to quite a lot of potential work.

These guys are all busy as heck (they're all independent business men too), so don't be discouraged if you don't get any initial reply.  Just keep sending them inquiries and samples until they say "No, seriously, go the hell away!" or they give you some work.


Anyway, I have no idea if you're interested in this sort of thing, so I'll end my wall of text here.  If you do think you'd like some more infos, post back or PM me and I'll do what I can.


(P.S. I have your book!  It's fantastic!)

Meh, I'll buy thing when the school year ends. My job only pays 72$ a month, just enough to pay for school needs. This summer I have a job lined up cleaning pools, about 500$ a + 50% of every start up we do and any repairs I do. So about 700$ a month. I've got my eye on a few things in the store I'm itching to buy. Perhaps you or Greg could get a part time job somewhere. Economies tough all around. Between School, CAP, JROTC, my church, home and everything else, I'd lose my hair if I had any.
