Who wants to be a Zombie?!


This weekend is the release party for my pal and fellow Yorker Brian Keene's new zombie comic, "The Last Zombie". If you're not familiar with Brian, he's a popular horror novelist and comic writer (More on him here and here.). The man is a Horror master, and his new comic is gonna knock Zombie fan's socks off!

Back to the party. This weekend the fine folks at Comix Connection are hosting the release party for the new series, and I'll be there later in the day to show my support AND to help Brian and the Comix Connection guys collect canned food donations for the York City Rescue Mission. The idea is similar to what he do at the Comix Creator Cookout every year.

This time however instead of just giving out a piece of art for the person with the heaviest donation, I will be drawing a characature of the winner as...(wait for it)....a ZOMBIE!

So if you've ever wondered what you'd look like if you died, and came back after a bit of rotting, then bring as many canned goods as you can carry and come out to the Comix Connection in York this saturday. More details here and here.

Thanks!
Mike

Hey Mike, I'm working OT @ my job Saturday so I won' t be able to get to York. I contacted Bill @ Comix Connection about taking my food donation over there for me, but I haven't heard back from him yet. Hope the food drive goes great & that everyone has an awesome time. Sorry I'm missing all the fun.

Dern....you guys always do the coolest stuff away from my area. I hope they have a good turnout and the lucky winner will be "de"composed well (haha...you see what I did there is I took the word composed and....well...nevermind). Good luck to all and I hope the winner is happy.

BTW, not sure what is in the air but my buddy was on a zombie kick as well:
