    Where’s the one with the yellowy eyes?

    In keeping with the whole anglophile thing, shouldn’t the link be to amazon.co.uk, where your shopping cart is a basket?

    Seriously, what’s up with the zombie fad?

    #9 – people are getting sick of vampires, and zombies are the cure.

  5. Trent Hawkins says:

    Yeah, and when are they going to get over that whole “listening to music” fad too?

    Been following Faith since her first webcomic, Demonology 101. It’s awesome to see how far she’s come and even awesomer (is that a word?) to see her Boing-Boinged.

  7. Duo says:

    so is this a one-shot thing, or is it part of an ongoing series?

    ZOMG ZOMBIES how fresh and original!

  9. Victor Bogado says:

    Everyone who didn’t read demonology 101 should go and read it at http://faith.rydia.net/ , I was hooked by it and have been following faith since. too bad her online-output has been so slow lately. :-)

    wait, isn’t it “Zombies Calling” not “Zombies Rising” as stated on the link?

    It looks amazing!

    I’m a HUGE fan of this comic — which actually came out in 2007 before everyone had zombie fever. It’s got a great sense of humor, a surprize ending, and lots of great inside jokes for hardcore zombie movie fans.

    @3: Zombies Calling is correct — thanks for pointing it out

    @1: It’s a stand-alone

    @2: Get bent.

    Also been following Faith for a while now (since Demonology) and I’m glad to see she’s gotten some publicity here. Well deserved.

    I have a friend (in Atlanta) who fakes British idioms and phrases because of this guy in England she likes. It makes me want to slap her with a Monty Python DVD.

    But a comic about someone with that trait? Sounds pretty neat, just because it’s cool to see things you can relate to.

    Ok, so now that even the characters in zombie fiction are aware of all the crappy stereotypes of zombie fiction, maybe it’s time for those rules to be tossed out of windows, along with the people who insist on them.

    I like zombies – but not the ones in 99% of all movies and video games. So boring…

  16. Daemon says:

    Gah, I meant crappy cliches.

    Hicks is awesome. I liked her next graphic novel, The War at Elismere, even more. Shame she doesn’t get more attention — maybe some publicity on Boing Boing can change that.

    Okay, so if she’s an Anglophile, does that make the title an homage to the Clash? Cuz if so, yet another reason to check this out, and the first obvious song on the soundtrack to the inevitable movie. :)

    @Tyger11

    The whole cover is a reference to the Clash album, not just the title.

    Someone just needs to come out with a comic or movie depicting mindless masses shuffling off to consume the latest zombie entertainment, and the circle will be complete.
