This comic was in a response to why I had everyone’s noses fall off when they become a zombie, Okay, well my doppleganger was the only one curious.
…..yeah. Um a wizard did it.
I just wanted to know why when you draw male zombies they have no noses, but female zombies still have theirs.
Also every female zombie you draw is, shall we say, well endowed.
I’m not saying your a pervert or anything. No wait, I tell you your a pervert twenty times a day.
Would you prefer that I draw all the male zombies with impressive cleavage?
Who’s the perv now, doppleganger?
Over at my comic, George initially didn’t have a nose either.
I added one to be able to do the “got your nose” joke sometime but, I ended up liking his look w/ it far better than when I was drawing him w/o a nose in the early designs.
Makes sense. I decided early on that I didn’t want to do color. Both for print cost reasons and as a nod to the movie “Night of the living dead” which was of course also in black and white.
The problem with that is that I needed people to be able to tell instantly weather a character was a zombie or alive and when they are both b/w it didn’t work. So I had the zombies pop their noses off to make it easier and their eyes glow of course.
With female characters I gave up on the “nose pop off.” Call me weird (and many people do) but women just don’t look good without a nose.
Or I could be lying and the real reason is that a wizard did it.
“A wizard made it”, hehehe, that was a subtle joke I personally got attached to. I have been told it appeared on The Simpsons as well, but I keep saying it was me who came up with it first!!
As for noses falling down when someone becomes a zombie… well… that raises a better question. How do they smell fresh brains if their nose has fallen off?
I love zombies (in a non-sexual way), congrats on the comic!!
Aha! A question. How do they smell fresh brains? The answer to that is that they probably have a much harder time doing so. This probably makes the zombies very very sad and can lead to zombie depression.
But on the plus side the manufacturers of Prozak have started to make a version of anti-depressants for zombies to help them ease their pain. We can only hope that a generic version will become available soon or the zombies will have to start making trips up to Canada for cheaper prescriptions.
Also, Daniel, Daniel, Daniel. Tsk Tsk, my friend. You mearly have not met the right zombie. One day I have faith that you will meet a lovely young zombie and LOVE will bloom and you two crazy kids will live happily ever after.
(Clearly I have had too much caffeine this morning.)
Truth is… I have never met a zombie, although I am one of those people who likes to chat with his friends how they would react if the zombie holocaust happens the next day. Which makes me grrrrrreat if some hot chick ever needs me to repopulate the world and puts me in a situation in which meeting a lovely young zombie is unlikely.
Buuuuut, you know more about zombies than I do, especially on caffeine. So… whatever happens, happens.
I often wonder how I will handle the coming zombpocalyps. With the realization that my various sources of caffeine will get cut off I imagine I’ll be quite crabby about it.
And having a great deal of withdrawal headaches I probably won’t be much fun to be around.
No noses? I feel sorry for any zombie who needs glasses…!
I won’t lie, for zombies, that’s a problem. Thank Cthulhu for tape and superglue!
Actually, they’d probably still be able to smell. Even if the nose falls off, the olfactory bulb (in the sinus) would still be present, thus, they would be able to smell perfectly fine.
When, not if, I become a zombie… I don’t think I want to be able to smell anymore.
Zombie stink has got to be pretty bad.
I thought it was due to solidarity with Zombie Michael Jackson…
