Introducing The Zombie Years

Posted by Cory Casciato On April - 30 - 2009

zombieyearsI wanted to draw your attention to a newish web comic called The Zombie Years. It’s a post-apocalyptic zombie story that follows a young Cuban-American named Frank who lives in Miami and so far it looks great. Here’s what you can expect from the series, in the creator’s words: “Zombie Years is a Horror Drama with lots of action and Humor, Survival tips, both real and unreal, DIY concepts, Latin American/Caribbean culture, while featuring Miami as a whole other character in the story.”

The writing is solid, the art is appealing and vibrant and the series doesn’t waste a lot of time with clumsy exposition or setup — it’s action packed from the word go, with explosions, face-shooting and hand-to-hand mayhem abounding in the few short pages available. Poking around on the site, it’s obvious a lot of thought and care has gone into the comic. The author, Juan Navarro, seems to have crafted a deep, engaging fiction and backstory and it will be exciting to see it come out in the comic over time. He’s already outlined the varieties of zombies, the timeline of the epidemic and other important details.

Really, the only complaint is that there just isn’t enough of it yet. I read the entirety of it in no time at all and now I have to wait a week for the next page. Damnation! Patience is not one of my many virtues. On the other hand, if you want to check it out, you can still get in at the more-or-less beginning, which is kind of nice in its own way.

Read it and judge for yourself at The Zombie Years web site.
