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!

Look at him go!
He's going from Point Loma to Ocean Beach. This is not an accurate overhead map of The Sports Arena area, so don't come to San Diego thinking the beach is right off Sports Arena Blvd, 'cause all you'll find is Home Depot.
About the show last night...
I went to two New Found Glory shows back to back last night and the night before (I'm writing this Monday, since I'm closing and opening at work). I jumped up and down so much my phone says I walked 5 miles lol. I posted a few videos on Instagram. I'm @emozombies, if you want to check them out.
I'm so thankful that you're reading this
Happy Thanksgiving! Andy says he's thankful for Erinyes's butt. Andy's been playing Assassin's Creed Egypt. As soon as I'm done I'm going to play some, too. I've been playing a little bit of Elder Scrolls since it was super cheap on xbox gold. My character's name is Highjointass, if you see me say hi lol.
Sorry about the smashed strat
I do feel bad that the Stratocaster got smashed, but Erinyes just went nuts and lost his sh*t.
The songs I thought about when making Tim's lyrics: Queens of the Stone Age and Puddle of Mud.
Also, I'm writing to you from the future, since I'll be at work when this posts. I shaded this super quick, 'cause I closed tonight and open tomorrow, and had to get this D-U-N. I keep going in on my days off, which is good. I need hours and money.
So, hey I added that ko-fi button, I don't know about it, so I might take it down if I get so drunk and high that I feel it ruins my integrity. Honesty, I'm just very happy that you guys read this. That's really why I make art. So, if I haven't said it lately, thanks for checking out my comic and reading it every week. I love you. Yes, you xoxoxoxoxo
Hey, look they're at Sports Arena
Sports Arena is also the same venue I used for their show in the first issue (page #4 of this site). Weeeooo!
Just realized, I came up with The Emo Zombies 10 years ago, wow! It was on Halloween when I worked at SeaWorld doing caricatures. So, Happy Anniversary to this comic. I'd do another special, but damn those take a long time. I am considering doing an Emo Zombies animated concert when I finish the series. The song will be hard to's gotta be something that really fits. Maybe Superdrag (anything from Regretfully Yours especially 'Sucked Out') or Alien Ant Farm 'Around the Block' - just watch the video, I swear is it in OB?! Or PB? It's probably just Venice Beach :( I always get psyched out by LA- I mean, they're from Rancho Bernardo, so...
Anyway, I just get excited about my late 90s alternative-- EMO (not emo) -- music. Speaking of...New Found Glory ahhh! I'm seeing them on the 25th and 26th ahhhh! I'll be dead after, so you'll have to find another site to jerk off to--er, read comics at. I'll try to keep my pants on for both shows, but it will be hard.
Any thoughts on what you think The Emo Zombies sounds like? Do certain songs come to mind for you? Let me know, I'd like to hear from you all. Thanks :)
Happy Halloween!
Here's a special illustration for Halloween. In exchange, there won't be a comic page this week.
Their costumes from left to right: Erinyes is Leatherface (my favorite horror movie character next to Pinhead, Chucky, Freddy, and the Trick or Treat little guy), Tim's a tiger, Francis is Ghost Rider aka Johnny Blaze (Nicolas Cage version, because I love him), Chopper is Shouyou Hinata from Haikyuu, and Lucifer Jr aka LuJu is Gerudo Link from Breath of the Wild.
Again, Happy Halloween! Thanks for reading :)
Halloween Special Next Week
Since Halloween is on a Tuesday, I'll be putting up the halloween special illustration instead of a comic page next week. Heads up. Don't want to disappoint anyone. And, hope everyone has a fun time partying this Sat to celebrate. I'm going as Cheetah Yuri Plisetsky. Anyway, what's everyone else dressing as? If you're lonely and don't have plans let me know, I'll mail you a Baby Ruth, and we can talk about how amazing the South Park game is.

Also, they're playing at sports arena. Just wanted to add that in there. It's one of the big local venues here.

And, one more thing, would you look at how saucy Tim is acting? Damn, boy. You lose your virginity and act like a fricken sex pot ho. Same.
Little ghostie in the third panel <3 love that guy
Also, about the two goobers running from tim’s’s fred durst from smashmouth and shaggy. haha i know fred durst isn’t from smashmouth, he’s from diners, drive-ins, and dives.
i just have them taking their cat for a walk at 5am, so what?
He's actually a fury not a demon, tim
Note that I'm saying 'fury' not 'furry'. Big difference. Also, they're in Oak Park, IL, again. Sometimes they're in San Diego, sometimes Chicago, sometimes Maine. It depends on the season. It's feeling like fall here, so I had a fun time drawing that last panel of them walking through Tim's yard in their sweaters and flannel. ooooooweeee, Jerry! I could draw these two humping and kissing all day <3 <3 <3
Good morning!
Well, it's still morning here at least.

Hope you like that I'm adding smut to this comic. I did have Chopper's dick on the 2nd page of Issue #1. I had a word bubble covering it, but you can see a bit of the pubes ;p Anyway, I've always wanted to draw this, so thanks for reading! It took a lot of liquor and courage for me to get this out there.
Yes, Luju wore mittens just to eat ice cream
And sorry, you'll have to wait until next week to find out what Tim and Erinyes are up to.
Also, sorry for the cheezeballs emo pun Ben & Jerry's ice cream flavor. It took me like an hour to come up with that *sob.
Also, one more thing. My Chemical Romance is emo, yes? My cousin said they are not emo, and is a big fan. WTF. I said, no. That is incorrect. They are very very emo. Anyway, that's the whole idea behind this comic. Seriously. I came up with the idea, because emo bands always say they're not emo when they are emo. If no one is emo, then emo wouldn't exist. But it does exist (well, spellcheck doesn't consider emo a word. Also, spellcheck can piss up a rope). Blink 182, My Chemical Romance, even goddamn Billy Corgan (aka king emo) are E-M-O. That is all.
Erinyes's pants & Halloween
Two things. First, I designed Erinyes's pants and suspenders based on ones my friend Rudy G (writer/illustrator of The Catalyst comic in the 'My Comics' archive on my page) had to wear working as a tin smith in Old Town.
Second, I'm working on an Emo Zombies Halloween illustration for this year. If you have costume suggestions, feel free to post a comment or email me. You can check out the one I did back in 2008 on page #65 (in the drop down menu).
Thanks for reading!
These two
Nice guitars
Put the lotion in the basket, Tim
I was going to put a New Order song, or Depeche Mode. But, then I thought about the songs they play at my favorite goth club, and I remembered how my one friend would wait all night for them to play this classic from Silence of the Lambs, and bingo, had to put it on here. Also, I played it a few times kinda loud with the door open while coloring this page, so, you're welcome new neighbors.
Just like heaven
Oh boy. I haven't 100% decided what song will come on the start of the next page. It should be Pictures of You, but I can't have two Cure songs in a row. Also, that's not the most danceable song.
If you can guess that song in the first panel without looking it up, I'll draw you a hunk commission of your choice
lol. I started the gray tones and shading at 8:30am this morning and it took me 'til 3:30 to finish. Geeze. I rushed it, too. It's ok it took me so long to post, 'cause this is my favorite page so far.
Here we are getting into the main story all the set up is done. Beetlejuice is loose. I mean, Erinyes is...and he's dressed in his hottest club attire (may have been over a hundred years since he's gone out to a box social). Enjoy. I promise a good ride, good jokes, and good illustrations. Let's go! Yay
No hidden meaning behind song/band references here
Shout out to that 1994 classic song 'Little Bastard' by the Ass Ponys. I'm pretty sure I've referenced it before, but here I am bringing it up, again.
In the club, I have that Siouxsie and the Banshees song playing, because it was playing while I was drawing that panel. That's all.
How do you jostle someone out of a funk?
Step 1) Shake the mopey friend. Step 2) Caress their face all lovey after. Step 3) Watch Sharknado 5, especially the opening credit animation. If depression still continues, repeat steps one and two, then follow it up by watching Kung-Fu movies. For more advice on handling depression, consult Dan Harmon.
Luju is genuinely concerned for you, tim.
Well, I'll be damned.
I've been watching Silicon Valley, and Erlich Bachman makes me think of Lucifer Jr. My friend said LuJu is like Big Head. Ok, sure, but I think Tim's more like him.
Tim doesn't stay sad for long
I mean, Tim's emo and sad a lot, but he has a short attention span for depression, and gets excited and snaps out of it quickly. Tim wears his heart on his sleeve, and at this point, Francis doesn't want to deal with it anymore. Let's see if Tim can find someone that doesn't mind that side of him. And, hopefully it's not that handsy angel.
