Local Comic Books

Postby NerdyTypo » Fri Jan 03, 2014 9:58 am

I was just wondering, for those that read comics and whatnot. If you visited your local comic book shop/game store and you saw a zombie comic book (scary, funny, silly, zombie related), would you be interested in supporting that artist (if it was good, I understand that factor) by buying a comic?

What factors would play into your purchasing a comic made by local artist featuring zombies? :stagger:

I'm not sure who would be into comic related stuff, but The Walking Dead started a comic and look where it's gotten people who probably never paid attention to anything zombie related. Not that that is the best example but I hope I'm getting my point across....

Anyway, I just want suggestions. I really wanna know what people are looking for when it comes to reading about zombies!
Not all would say that they wouldn't mind dying by being eaten...just depends on what form of eating we are talking about haha.

I don't think it gets much better than The Walking Dead. Brian Keene tried his hand at a comic, but it didn't do well.

Story over art.
Keep things moving but don't let it get stupid.
Not every idea is a good idea.

Hm. Thanks. Yeah, the actual comic book of The Walking Dead is definitely better then the show.

And I see your point. I think some get lost in the art and forget about the story a lot of the time.

Many people do lose sight of the story.
I am not really a comic guy because of that.
I mean I can appreciate the art but if the story sucks so does the comic.
I am not really one to discuss comics as I probably have not read one other than some of the Walking Dead ones in a LOT of years.
I guess my views are all from the flip side of the coin.

What about a children's zombie book? More themed for Young adults?

I would say young adult at a minimum.
Speaking as a a parent, they are not going to buy children's books that give them nightmares.

I agree, it should be young adult. And one might do very well if the success of Jonathon Maberry is any indication with his "Rot and Ruin" series.
