Zombie Outlaw #1 is a self-published comic book from writer Brian J. Apodaca and artist B. Paul Jordan. Apodaca has previously self-published Reunion and Fire Never Forgets.
Zombie Outlaw is a kind of weird horror/fantasy title set at Irvine State University where the students are just like other college students. The story opens to find resident geek Matt Naismith trying to romance sexy co-ed, K.T. Delaney. Matt turns to Will Simers aka “The Brain,” a self-styled ladies man and archeologist, for help in catching K.T.’s attention. Will agrees, but he wants something in return, and that something is a quest to find a relic. But the relic belongs to the legendary “Zombie Outlaw.”
Zombie Outlaw is a comic horror title, mixing traditional horror comic books with a little Saturday morning cartoon style and Joe Lansdale, but it is a comic book. Zombie Outlaw #1 doesn’t strike me as one of those comic books that wants to be something else (like a screenplay). It starts off a college comedy (which didn’t interest me), but the second half is actually quite intriguing. I’m interested to see where this goes.
