Thought I’d share some of my Zombie Boy comic book work with you. Here is page 13 from Zombie Boy #1, which was published by Antarctic Press in 1997. This version of Zombie boy is quite different from the fin-headed imp in the comic strip. I took an experimental departure from hisÂ regular “cartoony” look when I created this. At the time, I was really into manga and anime, and you canÂ see theÂ influence in the layout and toning. I’m really proud of this book, the first of a planned three-issue comic book series which unfortunately never made it past this first issue.
In this page, there is a snag in the cruel killerÂ Baron Samedi’s plan to rule Limbo, when the daughter of his conquered rival, Danballah, escapes to our world in search of an ancient totem which could restore the balance to the Darklands. The tale is based on actual voodoo mythology and I had a great time putting it all together.Â
