    Is it just me or is Moarte attempting to eat a human hand just adorable?
  • armagod679
    It is very adorable. But now I feel bad and want to send him some meat...

    Why not, it'll only cost you an arm and a leg! >:D

    Also, I guess this means Moarte's not a vampire, but a ghoul. Ghouls are known to eat human flesh, usually rotting human flesh. The More You Know. *jingle plays*

    But then the whiney wife and stupid, careless little boy lost me.

    Though in regards to the comic's story in comparison to the fist few issues, not bad in being nearly identical. They both have much of the same story and they both have great characters. The best representation of a more, shall we say, 'realistic' reaction people would have to a zombie apocalypse. I always felt that at the core of the story, if you removed the Zombies and inserted some other virus, or even nuclear radiation, it'd still apply and much of the story wouldn't change at all. Certainly deserving of The Long Box, Moarte.

    Sweet!

    Hey Linkara, What do you think of xxxholic's animated version of that particular story? I thought it was different, but still pretty cool. =)

    Hey, you stopped spamming!
    I like this show, it's a quick little fun video every day, and it's always just a tad different.

    I'm not surpised Moarte doesn't like the tv show, but what about you Linkara? Also have you played the walking dead video games?

    Is this seriously the first LOTD that doesn't end with Moarte cackling wickedly?

    I was wondering if The Walking Dead would find its way to the Longbox. I've not read many of the comics, myself, nor much of the TV show (though I do recall not enjoying the episodes I saw). I am, however, a huge fan of the recent games by Telltale, which so far actually look to be my Game of the Year.
  • TrangleC
    I have to disagree with Linkara on one point. I think the biggest problem with the comic (besides the fact that it steals so many ideas and themes from other zombie publications and movies) is that the characters do not act realistic and natural. Sometimes, especially in later issues they behave like characters in stories for children. Also the way single zombies always manage to sneak up on the characters whenever the plot needs a bit more drama and/or action is getting ridiculous, but I suppose that is a problem all fiction about the slow moving Romero kind of zombies shares.

    Nice review and series. By the way Zombies are not cannibals they dont eat eachother.

    A real hand doesn't have much meat on it either.
  • Youngbountygirl  - Wow!
    I've never seen or read The Walking Dead, but it seems very interesting to read.

    pause at 5:03. that is the face of a man who just went in the cupboard to get some oreos, took out the package, and found the package to be empty because some sick sadistic bastard ate the last oreos and just left the package in there, and now this man is broken. just broken. all because he just wanted a goddamn sandwich cookie.

    I am liking this show already. Linkara is a good as ever, but the character takes its time to grow on me. Terror isn’t my think but so far I am considering changing that. What I do not agree with are zombies in general. After so many Resident Evil games and movies I think that, even if they happen, has to be in a world without those because we kind of know how to fight zombies, being both science monsters and just magic creatures.

    Also, I don’t watch the Walking Dead but: How you make a zombie a character? They as to be just those freaking creatures that eat humans. They lack brains and personality. Is not much of monsters since most of the time are normal humans who has to make them room to be a treat or the plot force our main characters to go to “that place where all the zombies are and yet we still have to go”. Maybe is because of the horrible Resident Evil franchise but that is how I watch zombies. I may look at this series.

    Another great review. Nice addition with the fake hand at the end to.

    So I finally get to have a look at the Walking Dead comic. I have a friend who just started watching the show and wants me to watch as well, but I just don't have the time, especially after it's been going for so long.

    I hear both are very good, though.

    Oh, I have that same fake hand!
  • Ericho  - I'm back!
    I had no idea "Marvel Zombies" and "The Walking Dead" were made by the same person! Well, worked on, I guess. I have been having a lot of trouble signing up on this website. At least I'm finally back, but don't know for how long. This may be the most well known comic you've reviewed, next to the Sandman. I had no idea it's been going on for ten years, but with so many volumes, I guess it makes sense.
  • dejavuman22  - Review suggestion
    I have a suggestion for an independent comic you could review. It is called "Dead World." It is in a similar vein as Walking dead, except its run started in the late 80's. In fact, in reading the ones I have, there are many similarities between this and Walking Dead, including using a destroyed zombie to get by the undead (though admittedly the way it's done in Dead World is a bit more goofy). Also, the story has bounced around between many different publishers, starting with Arrow comics, moving to Caliber, and eventually ending up with Image Comics (and those are the ones I know of). The ones I have currently are from Caliber, which is part of their first run at it. While I enjoy it, I know there are lots of problems with the comic, such as inconsistent art (articles of clothing appearing and disappearing, wonky faces), unnatural poses (living and undead), an odd sense of humor, and even some major departures from the normal zombie criteria. In this series, some of the zombies can talk, and act almost like normal (except for the rotted and maimed part) which I think is kinda cool, but in one scene I actually started laughing when some of the survivors are being chased down my zombies driving cars. Seriously. But for all that, I still like it. However, I also know that there is enough there you could get some mileage out of it. Hope you find this helpful!
