You know I thought of alternative punch lines for this, some more deviant than others. I could have gone much much darker, but I do “Try” to keep the comic at a PG-13 level.
Last Days On Mars Trailer with possible Martian zombies? Sign me up. This clip looks suitably creepy and scary enough to get my attention. I want to see this. Anything new in the zombie genre can only be a good thing. So lets have some hungry zombies on Mars.
Ruairi Robinson, has made a space movie starring Liev “Sabretooth” Schreiber. Behold, the very first clip from Last Days on Mars.
“A group of astronaut explorers succumb one by one to a mysterious and terrifying force while collecting specimens on Mars.” It’s based on Sydney J. Bounds’ short story The Animators, and centers around the last few days of a six-month Mars mission.
Last Days on Mars screened at Cannes but does not currently have a US premiere date.
Please Vote For My Webcomic in order to see the slightly scandalous incentive art I’ve been putting up lately. I decided to try this after noticing a friend of mine having good success with it.
So for the foreseeable future I’ll be continually adding new incentive art, sketches, etc. for you to see in exchange for your vote. It’s easy, just takes a second and helps me out. Thanks.
You can click the “Top Webcomics” link on the right side of the website right below the comic or click here if you’d like.

Here’s an example of previous incentive art.
Max Brooks discusses World War Z, the movie and it’s not filling me with confidence and hope. If you haven’t read World War Z you really should. Not because you need to be informed about the movie, not because you need to know about zombies, but because it’s just a very entertaining read. It’s a good book and it’s interesting.
When Max Brooks discusses World War Z in this interview I almost get the feeling he knew that there was never any way that his book would be faithfully filmed. And how could it have been. World War Z is basically a series of short stories told after the fact and linked together by an interviewer’s narrative. How can you film that.
Max Brooks discusses World War Z. Max Brooks, zombie expert and author of the bestseller, World War Z, talks about the adaptation of the novel into the movie of the same name starring Brad Pitt with Mansfield University Public Relations Director Dennis Miller. Brooks was at Mansfield University for a speaking engagement on October 22, 2012.
I’m sad now. When Max Brooks discusses World War Z you start to realize how soulless Hollywood is. It doesn’t feel like they give a crap about making good stories. It’s pretty much, “how can we make money and artistic integrity be damned.” Of course the cynic in me thinks Max Brooks new this and sold the rights to World War Z in the full knowledge that his novel would never see life as a movie. He was just selling the name for a fat paycheck.
Knowing that, how do you feel about that? I’ll be honest that strikes me as being just as mercenary and soulless as the Hollywood execs.
Of course if a couple suits walked in and wrote me a massive check so they could take my novel and have there sweaty way would it I would probably do it too. Hint hint, Come on Hollywood! Come give me a check.
An idyllic remote Irish island is invaded by enormous bloodsucking tentacled creatures from the sea. With islanders turning up decapitated and drained of blood, the inhabitants learn that the creatures—called Grabbers—are allergic to alcohol, making intoxicated people toxic to eat. Overrun and under attack, the hopeless locals realize that in order to stay alive through a storm that’s keeping everyone trapped on the island, they’re going to have to band together at the pub and do their best to survive the night
They had me the second I saw drinking and tentacles. What does that say about me? I try not to think about that too much. I came across this trailer which screams Lovecraftian terror mixed in with drunken humor. That’s pretty much all I need to know to throw my money at it. Nice special effects as well. I can’t wait to see Grabbers.
Grabbers is directed by Jon Wright and stars Richard Coyle, Ruth Bradley, and Russell Tovey. Grabbers will becoming out to select theaters soon and on video on demand around July 19th.
Sorry for the lack up updates lately. I’ve been scrambling to get ready for a convention, freelance work, and preparing a new line of products that I hope/pray people will like.
I assure you I am not dead and comics will resume at on Monday.
Also if you’re in the Utah area come see me this weekend… With luck I’ll be wearing pants!
