Blogger Zombie Walk 2011: Zombies invade the Funnies

Welcome to the 2011 Blogger Zombie Walk!  For my contribution I present: Zombies Invade the Funnies!  Besides horror, and all things horror related (especially Zombies), one of my great loves is the Funny Pages.  I swear the only reason I subscribe to the paper is the Funnies section.  Take that out and  screw you San Jose Mercury News!!  If you read this blog you know my favorite comic is LIO, by Mark Tatulli.  LIO is a monster kid who is actually happy that there are monsters hiding under his bed.  Zombies, my true monster love, show up a lot in LIO.  Surprisingly enough, they show up in a lot of other comics as well.  Zombies, besides being scary, are pretty funny.  Please enjoy this selection of Newspaper funnies featuring Zombies.  Most of these comics can be found at the excellent site GoComics.com



MONTY by Jim Meddick 





LIO by Mark Tatulli






BLISS by Harry Bliss


BIZARRO by Piraro





BREWSTER ROCKIT by Tim Rickard




DILBERT by Scott Adams



Jeff Swenson at comicsgonebad.com


and finally...

Thanks to Zombies and Toys for this one.  Find more comics at shoeboxblog.com

Two great sources for other awesome comics (Zombie and non-Zombie) are Zombie Reporting Center, a pretty excellent site for all things Zombie, and The Comics Curmudgeon.  I recommend The Comics Curmudgeon because I think this guy is as obsessed with Rex Morgan M.D. as I am.  Speaking of Rex, here is a list of comics I would love to see Zombies invade...

  1. Rex Morgan M.D.
  2. The Family Circus
  3. Mary Worth
  4. For Better or for Worse
  5. Luann (kill that bitch!)
  6. Mutts
  7. Prince Valiant
  8. Ziggy (is that still around?)
  9. Blondie
  10. Garfield
Hope you have enjoyed by section of the Blogger Zombie walk.  For more Zombie goodness, check out these Monkey Fighters:

I am thrilled that zombies are taking over pop culture. It really puts things into perspective. We already walk around like zombies with cell phones glued to our ears and apparently have unending appetites, so I'd say we're the land of the zombies1

Thanks for sharing those funnies! The Fat man and the zombies outside of his window made me laugh out loud. :)

Little Gothic Horrors said...

Cool zombie comic strips! I love that the posts are all so different and unique on this walk.

Monkey Man said...

I share that live of comics. Like you, it may be one if the few reasons for still having the paper delivered to my home. It is like s morning meditation. Great group of zombified material you've gathered.
