Run if you Want to Survive
The comic book industry, like any entertainment business, is tough. And attempting to launch a new brand in zombie themed comic fiction is even tougher; especially when you have to compete with established brands like The Walking Dead, Planet of the Living Dead and Empire of the Dead. However, that is exactly what Bad Apple Entertainment has done with their comic Dead Last.
The storyline is simple. A group of friends head out to a zombie run and while they’re participating they run into some “real” talking zombies. The question is whether they’ll realize that the zombies are not members of the run organization and escape before they are slaughtered.
The dialog is very simple and without profanity, and the pencil and ink is not too elaborate. And overall the comic is not extremely graphic and would be suitable for readers that at looking for a zombie comic that isn’t too complicated or violent. I speculate that this was done on purpose, to draw a wider readership and more suitable for younger readers. Which to me is a contradiction since it is also a marketing tool for Bad Apple Entertainment’s upcoming short film Dead Last. And from the trailer, (see below) the film look creepy.
We’ll be bringing you a review for the film and details on its release later in the month.
