George Bush VS The Zombies! GAK!

This was sent to me by Gak-e-teer Jeffery G the other day. The President makes a convincing argument. They must have WMDs!

Me, Max & World War Z!


Way back in mid February of this year I got to meet Max Brookes. The author of The Zombie Survival Guide and World War Z. If you're a zombie fan and have NOT read these books, Shame on you! They are without a doubt two of the greatest books ever written on the subject of the undead. The Zombie Survival Guide published in 2003, is a fictional survival manual that deals with the potentiality of an undead attack. Brooks lays out detailed plans for the average citizen to survive zombie uprisings of varying intensity. World War Z charts the war against the undead from global pandemic to mass panic, and then to the eventual armed struggle to reclaim the planet. Rather than a grand overview or a single perspective, it is instead a collection of individual accounts, each revealing an aspect of the larger plot and simultaneously presenting a very personal tale. These different accounts take the form of interviews.
The book is being adapted into a film by Brad Pitts company. I told Max that he was one of the people who inspired me to create My Living Dead Girl and gave him GAK buttons, a Courtney button and some other cool stuff from the My Living Dead Girl Shop!. He quietly said "Thanks." He loved the postcard of Courtney attacking a fellow student on the bus and told me he would check out the web site and then signed my books. See below...

"Noble Name." and "Love Your Work!" How's that for endorsements? Is it a stretch to say, "Max Brookes Loves My Living Dead Girl." Maybe. At lest I can hold my head up with pride.

The My Living Dead Girl Studio

Hello All,

A number of people have asked me to post some pictures of my studio where I work on the strip. Well here you are. Yes, that's my DVD collection on the wall. Yes, that's a lot of DVDs. I like movies. To my left I have my "Sinister Six" Bowen bust collection. On the desk Galactus and The Big Guy are also on hand to help me out. On the wall, an original drawing by Ub Iwerks from the 1929 Silly Symphonies cartoon "The Skeleton Dance". Also a Guy Davis drawing of Abe Sapien from "Hellboy". On top of the cabinet my "Hellboy" statue collection. Lastly, I work on my little I-Mac, that's about 6 years old. I had to buy a back up external drive recently to hold all the art work I've been doing.

You can never do any work in the studio, unless you have a cat on your lap. Murphy needs a lot of attention now that Hugo is around.

Speaking of Mr.Hugo (My NEW Boss) here he is looking over the final strip this week. He's a real hard ass when it comes to spelling and graphic content. I miss spelled "WHHHAAAGH?" Ok. More vomit? Whatever you says Boss. Well, there it is.

Re: Your Brains. GAK!

I found this on the web today. Thought it was a really funny song. Check it out, zombie fans.

The Hole - video powered by Metacafe

A music video for Jonathan Coulton's song "Re: Your Brains", a song about having to deal with your jerk co-worker even after he's been turned into a zombie. Jonathan Coulton is a singer/songwriter who releases his songs via the Creative Commons license, which enables projects such as this video. Through his "Thing A Week" podcast, Jonathan has put out a clever, creative song like this one each week for a year. The song at the end of the video is "Mandelbrot Set", another great Jonathan Coulton song. Go to for more.

My Living Dead Girl News Flash!

Hello Gak-e-teers!

It's been 11 weeks since I stopped working on My Living Dead Girl
to enjoy fatherhood. Dena and I had our first son, Hugo Abraham McDonald, on Jan 3rd and we could not be happier. Being a new parent is truly amazing. Our thanks go to all who wrote in giving their best wishes and to all the family and friends who helped us give Mr. Hugo a great start.

I also want to apologize to all the fans for not getting things starting sooner, but having a newborn is really, really time consuming. I thought "Hey, I can do comicstrip work at night when the little Hugo's asleep. Right?" WRONG! Hugo has been a lot of work. He has acid reflux and sleeping and eating have been very hard on him. But some time has passed and he's doing much, much better and now I can start moving some of my spare time back to doing the strip again.

So. . . starting March 30th My Living Dead Girl will return! No more delays. No Bull#@%! This will happen! Hugo has given me a lot of new material to use for the strip and I hope your ready for more!

So Gak-e-teers, what can you do in the meantime? You can vote! I want you to click on the banner below and do your civic duty. We need to knock "Dead-Ted Films" out of the top slot and put My Living Dead Girl back at #1. You can vote everyday! Courtney needs your support! Do it now!

See you all on the 30th!
