The Emo Zombies

The thrilling, spazztasticly durp-o-matic adventures of zombies Tim, Francis and Chopper. Lead singer, and overzealous try-hard virgin Tim just can't let his pop punk band the 'Legitimate Zombies' die (formerly the Meat Heads). Now, this undead trio is forced to roam the earth, perform concerts, and keep album sales up, or face a certain unknown hellscape in the land of the dead. Just don't call them emo! Written and illustrated by Emily Mather Moretz

Tim You Airhead
Oh Tim, you got so excited you forgot about that amp.
Just realized Tim is looking kind of like Hector the Catillac Cat from 'Heathcliff' with that headband, especially in the last panel.
420 Rip-tastic Special
Happy 420 from the West Coast! Here's a mini Emo Zombies comic for you to celebrate. Not that I am promoting smoking. I just think you should chill out a little today and take in the springtime freshness, bro.
Tim's Lyrics
On this week's page, Tim's song lyrics go along with songs by: Superdrag, Space, Chevelle, and Billy Ocean. I mean, they aren't bad songs that Tim is playing, and he has a lot of passion, for sure. It can be hard to get an audience is all. Putting yourself out there is only a small part of it, and even if you are really good, it's hard to get people to care.
Little nod there to 'Guitar Fun' in Oak Park, IL where I took guitar lessons as a teenager. Then, I have a bootleg version of The 'Kensington Club' here in San Diego. Someone asked where the setting is for Emo Zombies. I have it in issue #4 that they're in San Diego, so that's canon, but, Chicago and San Diego are the main locations I reference when drawing/making comics. Every once in a while I throw Maine or Michigan in there, especially for the cemeteries.
Angel Probed
Don't worry, Tim's still a virgin. Just got bad touched by an angel in the millisecond transition while traveling between heaven and earth. PS He liked it.
100th Page
Oh, and well, shit. I just realized this is the 100th page of Emo Zombies. (Not including covers, extra color pages, and the random drawings I threw on here in between issues 2,3, & 4). Thanks for reading!
Tim's Gonna Sin Hard
...Well, he'll try. 'Cause that's what he does. Try. He tries hard. And he sucks. But, that's why he's so damn endearing.
Angels have elf ears, right?
I don't know what a god damn angel looks like, but I was thinking it would be a combo of one of the Lord of the Rings Elf dudes, Inuyasha, and Viktor from Yuri on Ice. So, here's my condescending, love spewing, trolling angel bro. His name's like Sparkle Cheeks, or something like what you would name a My Little Pony.
All musicians go to hell
This is referring to page 8 of issue #1 when Satan says: 'All musicians, actors, and artists go to hell.' So, yeah, Tim is super passionate and tries hard, but with no album sales, no fans, and amateur talent, he isn't actually considered a musician, or an artist of any kind. Tim's more of an acquired taste all on his own. It's Francis and Chopper in combination with Emo Tim that makes The Legitimate Zombies a fucking stellar god damn band.
Tim's Freaking Out
Haha! So, yeah. A little backstory from Issue #4 page 8-9. Tim doesn't know anything about religion, and has no idea who Jesus is. He knows Satan because all of his favorite bands talk about worshiping the devil. He also spent a lot of time playing his records backwards to hear incantations praising and summoning our dark lord (Yes, I actually tried this with Stairway to Heaven and you can hear Robert Plant say 'Satan' a few times).
As of now Tim knows hell is a place and Satan is a dude, because he saw them first hand. He's more of a realist. So, here we are with Tim lost in a figurative place that he's never heard of. Like if he showed up at The Crypt Keeper's mansion, but had never seen Tales From The Crypt, so he missed that sweet cinematic opening, and doesn't know to check behind the bookcase next to the stairs for the secret passage way to the Crypt Keeper's coffin. Anyway, hope that helps. If you have any questions, feel free to comment. Thanx!
50,000 Views
I started drawing this artwork on Feb 15 when my views hit 50,000. It's gone up since then, but yeah. Oh my god you guys, this means so much to me :D I just had to do something special and say thanks like a hundred times.
New page will be up on Tuesday.
Did you expect anything less?
Well, there it is. Things will me moderately raunchy here and there (I mean, they kind of were before, right?). This was planned from the beginning. Not trying to offend anyone, so just a heads up. Things will get slightly gropey lol.

*Side note: I have over 50,000 views now, so I made a special page as a thank you to everyone who reads my comic, especially those who've stuck with me over the years, and through the long brake I took while going to school. Thanks, it really does mean so much to me that other people check out the comics I make. I'll post it next Sunday, so look forward to it!
Writing Issue #5
I've got this issue rough storyboarded and plotted, and it's going to be longer than the previous ones, which have been about 20 pages on average. And, I hope you enjoy it, too :) I kinda base the plots of Emo Zombies on what I want to draw and what I'm currently interested in. What I'm currently interested in is porn, and what I want to draw is...cute dudes. They'll be a couple sexy chicks, too haha. Maybe Devilrella will make an appearance in daisy dukes for anyone ;p
Happy Erinyes Day!
Oooooh new character time. What a perfect day to introduce a cute little demon for you, Francis, and Chopper to leer at. Lol that's just me, I guess. Hope you have a man, women, misc, or vibrator to keep you company this Valentine's Day. I have all of the above, plus my dirty, dirty imagination. Oh ho ho :P See you in a darkened closet with a blanket over my head lololol just kidding. Oh, and I love you, too, of course <3 <3 <3 email me, if you want me to send you chocolates and drunk poorly drawn sketches of dudes humping! Just don't be lonely :.( unless that helps you write your emo music (I know how that goes haha).
First New Page of Issue #5
Good thing Francis brought a lighter with him lol! Someone wanted to know how many joints Francis carries on him at any given time. That's an easy one. 5 is the magic number. He also has a few dime bags and a one hitter. He doesn't have his bong with him, but I'm sure he can make a cool one out of misc skulls and demon parts while he is in hell. Or he can just borrow one from Gozer, that f*cking stoner is always high as sh*t, hitting that dank bong load and blowing smoke like a fog machine hahaha
Bonus Color Page 2
Monday special extra bonus for you! Here's a color version of the last page of Issue #4. The Emo Zombie's story continues tomorrow with the start of Issue #5, so hope you check back and give it a go. This one is going to be good! Lots of hunks, demons, and losers haha!
Bonus Color Page
Here's the second to last page of Issue #4 to lead into the continuation of the story in Issue #5. Thought I'd do a little coloring for you guys to make this Issue extra special and nice lol! Just a sweet-ass Friday special <3 <3 <3
Issue #5 Begins!
Let's just go ahead and get into issue #5. Hope you like the cover art! I used lots of overlays and blending modes, and I adjusted the color scheme about 4 times lol! This was all done in illustrator (in case you were wondering). I just prefer it to Photoshop. Totally my own personal preference. I love vectors. What can I say?
End of Issue #4
Well, that took like 8 years, but Issue #4 is allll wrapped up. How do you liked that one? I'll be jumping right into Issue #5 so keep here every Tuesday. Thanks for reading!
What's the deal with Francis and Chopper?
So, people ask me, "what is Francis and Chopper's relationship? They seem kinda handsy." Well, they're best friends, you know? They've been to hell and back together, and are both talented musicians that have been playing together for years. They've been on the road for months at a time, and traveled the world with each other. That's all really. Besides, Francis is a skeleton, so I have no idea how a physical relationship would happen between these two (please send suggestions, if you have ideas lol!). Also, Chopper is very popular with the ladies. He's typically got a girlfriend most of the time, he just loves brains more than anything. Oh, and yes he does love Francis, he loves Francis with all his dick, I mean heart.
