Ah ze French.
I remember I used to love my French classes in high school...even though I never really got it. Id spend most of the time clowning around in the back with one of my buddies, which lead to hilarious out bursts from my French teacher Misour Michell.
But even though he yelled at us every now and then, most of the time he was a pretty cool guy. He also had him self an alright sense of humor.
Just the other year I got to work with some French artists for a comics expo that happened at our local library. My self along with my buddy Albie had our art work on display and we spent our nights drawing stuff for kids and some very cute girls.
What would you like?
and what would you like?
Dear god... If I see one more mermaid....
While we had the expo I also got to have a look at some of the comics that the French artists brought over with them, and some of them were pretty messed up. The French read some crazy shizz.
Which is good... because this appetite for the odd comic books has lead to something even more magical than a mermaid.
This month brings us the release of The Zombies that Ate the world! Written by Jerry Frissen and illustrated by one of my favorite artists Guy Davis... the genus that works on BPRD.
Though it's being brought to us by Devil's Due Publishing... the comic found it's initial fame over in France, which is why we had the elaborate back story concerning the French. The story is basically about this program that the US government comes up with in the year 2064, where they decide to integrate zombies back into society . Kinda like Fido... but without the collars. Needless to say things get 'les fucked up' and we end up with a lot of zombies that want a whole lot of brains.
I found a little Q&A with the writer and artist over at Humanoid Publishing, which made my grubby little hands itchy to get my self a copy. It also made my grubby eyes want to read it and my grubby mouth smile whilst I do.
While on the subject of the French and zombies... I still have to watch Paris by Night of the living Dead.
