Zombie Ambush Splash Page by Huwman Zombie Ambush Splash Page by Huwman
This is a splash page from a graphic novel I'm working on. I don't want to give away too much of the story but here we have the three protagonists: sexy gal, hunchbacked mad doctor's assistant and a film noir detective type (with a "soul patch" style beard), all being menaced by a herd (?) of zombies. The woman was showing a couple of photos to the hunchback before the zombies showed up so that's what she's holding in her hands.

Obviously it's a rather odd story but I'm hoping it will be pretty cool if I EVER manage to get it finished.

Just 55 pages or so to go! Sigh.

Those should be added to the lyrics of "These are a Few of My Favourite Things"! :)

What a super stylized page, love the inking you do it reminds me of Rand Holmes from twisted tales. The heading is wonderful, sexy even , and sets the mood perfectly. I hope you got this graphic novel finished buddy, if not hurry only a couple of weeks until Halloween and you could cash in big!

Thank you, sir! That means a lot, especially coming from one of the best zombie artists on the planet! I am actually doing this story as a 3-issue trilogy first and will then likely collect 'em into a graphic novel. The first issue is currently out and I'm s-l-o-w-l-y getting the next one done.

I do have a PDF version of issue 1 available for you overseas types (24 pages), since postage is prohibitive. It's only $3 USD (or equivalent) but no hard sell, Gurch! If you happened to be interested, just let me know. Not sure how PayPal works in Britain but I assume it does.

In any case, thanks for your comments!

I hear you and the progress you're making, getting a whole comic book together is a colossal task and progress even when it goes well is only feels like a stampede of snails. i am trying to force myself to pull some art work together and try and fill a 48 pager with short stories of the undead variety. no matter how much i threaten myself i still only have half done, not half a book, half a story written on one, half the pencils done on the next, quarter of the inking done here...and in my head the whole book looks gloriously done. I have the cover done at least. Im thinking of ditching one of the 6 page stories and just fill those pages with pin up work, its much easier and seems to go down well. I will post up my cover on Halloween, and maybe some interior sketches.
You know i am interested in your comic but really fighting the chance to buy it right here right now, i think if i get bogged down with mine i shall buy yours and just maybe i might get possessed by the same demon you use and then i can be driven to complete my book by them.

I was going to ask if you have any comics or something similar that a guy can buy. I know comics are a lot of work but this last 24-page comic took me FOUR years! Mind you, in that time I also ran a full time graphics and illustration business, raised 2 teenagers, started a film company, taught myself to play guitar (badly), wrote a screenplay, etc.

Still, damn slow going on the comic.

Again, no pressure, but if you ever wanted to exchange parcels of artistic goodies such as comics, t-shirts, posters, etc., I'd be game. The postage is pretty brutal but I'd still do it.

In any case, keep up the great work, sir!

FOUR YEARS! Oh my goodness, you are an inspiration! Im afraid i let my creative urges die a little for the years i did much the same as you ( cept the guitar badly bit) .
I wishes i had pushed and finished more strips but there werent as many comic opportunities about 10 years back, self publishing wasnt the route for me. Still im mighty proud of what i achieved in my normal life. Just getting or trying to get back into the swing of things again....and it feels as good as fur lined underwear on a frosty morning mmmmmm.
Guys like you are a great source of nourishment you gee me up, when i see all the gorgeous work you do i appreciate how much love, toil and sometimes frustration goes into each page each panel.
When you mention how slow going it all is what with normal life and its mundane tasks getting in the way i roll my eyes back...because i remember that part. Oh and going without sleep, i used to work into the wee hours without realizing.
But then there very little that fufils as much as finishing a whole book of or even a 6 page...its chesting beatingly beautiful as moments go.

Yes indeed. It must be artistically fulfilling since I sure ain't in it for the money! I still treasure the stuff I have of yours i comics from the '80s so I would love to see more some day!
