As for those disappearing reappearing wings...
Yeah, those wings disappear when Erinyes isn't using them. They just go into a negative zone, then reappear when he needs to fly or wants to make a dramatic entrance. Lots of things exist in that negative zone in this comic. Like angel porn productions, and the upper half of Chopper's face.
Look at that hunk.
It's fun drawing big boob chicks, but hot damn it's f*$%ing great drawing smutty dudes. Thanks to BKJHSGF (not his actual name) for posing for this. In a recent survey 2/4 hunks agree that they want to bone him. *thumbs up
Is Francis's joint getting bigger each panel?
Why yes. Yes, it is.
Nothing like a sweet homeless antichrist to lift your spirits.
...Yeah, but he's gonna be staying on that couch of yours for at least a month. I know it's lonely, but he's not worth it. You'll be out of triscuits for the rest of your life.
Next week Francis and Chopper are back. Look forward to it!
Oh, Tim you already are dead
Why would a zombie wish it was dead? Well, I think zombies wish they were dead the most. So close, yet so far lol.
And for god sake, Tim, don't let LuJu take advantage of you. He's a sweet talking antichrist that is about the laziest sack of crinkle cut hot fries you ever found left in an abandoned Buick Roadmaster Estate.
Sad walk away
I'm thinking that sad song from Claptrap's Claptastic Voyage (Borderlands: Pre-Sequel DLC) when Claptrap ruins everything is playing as Tim gets rained on. Does anyone know what I'm talking about? You guys like Borderlands? Yes? Ok.
Satan's Bitch
Tim's channeling the cover of Hole's 'Live Through This' album with an emphasis on the "Carrie" side. He's a happy little prom queen, until he becomes an angry little prom queen. Then, he goes back to being a downhearted little emo (normal mode). He gets so sad. I promise I'll make him happy again. I've actually been feeling gloomy, 'cause I'm drawing him having a hard time. I have to think about Tim jumping in the snow and playing with a dog all happy and excited to keep from moping. You can use that imagery, too. It helps.
Making Outfits
If I could, I would change Tim's outfit every other page. I'm kind of doing that this time, anyway. I may have designed the story around dressing Tim up. Maybe.
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!
