Hey guys, hope you're having a good week, and I hope that the weekend is going to be awesome for you! I'm not working this weekend, so mine is looking up already ;)

Wow. John sure likes digging! When June was drawing the picture, we were both laughing how big she'd made the hole. I guess you naysayers who thought that John wouldn't be able to explain himself without putting his foot further into his mouth feel bad about your judgementalness now, don't you? Well, either that or we skipped the conversation to spare him the embarrassment, and just went to the point where he'd finally conveyed himself.. Maybe.

And those who were wondering if a zombie would be willing to eat his brains are probably being shown in this one. She sure looks like she's digging deep into his skull..

In other news, has anyone ever had one of those nights where you feel like you didn't sleep a wink? I feel like I was looking at the clock every couple of minutes... Someone neglected to turn off their alarm clock and went for a shower, so I had to get up and shut it off... At which point I decided to give up trying to get some sleep and just get up a few hours early.

One reason that this is a good thing though is that I hope to get to sleep pretty quick when I get home tonight, and I have to get up early on the day this comic is posted to cover a few hours for a co-worker.

I'm tired. I'm going to bed. Sorry, no update from me. Damned sleep disorder/problem/thing-ma-bob.

That big hole is just preperation, he's softening up the dirt for later when he has to bury more corpses he finds in the future. LOL! XD

Beth is such a gorgeous zombie! And that
is a truly awesome dig there John, he is obviously an expert digger, note not a bit of dirt on his clothes.

Having dug holes to plant flowers and fence posts and stuff, may I be the first to say 'Daaaaamn' at how much John's dug in so little time.

And Beth gets a meal of guilt free (If slightly stale brains).

Wait does this mean she'll get smarter, or must the brains be living?

I dug a large hole once.
You would be surprised how many bodies can fit into one...

@Linden - It will be addressed further in the upcoming comics ;)

@Guest - It's not like he was going to eat them!

@Syaoran - Damn right! Cemetary ftw ;)

@Moizmad - June actually said "Damn, I forgot to draw him dirty" after I finished lettering it and such... Oops, moving on.. :D

@Eternal_Phantom - Maybe it was a really long story? And we'll see about the brains, but notice she hasn't consumed anything yet, she's just digging it out...

@MarshmallowGherkin - I probably would... And you probably should be too!

Nicely done. I suppose that I don't, personally, have anything against cannibalism. In the case, say, that there's a fresh, disease-free body that no one will miss....

Dang it, I'm thinking out loud. Again.

Aw man, poor Ole Corpsey™. I was starting to like him. I guess he no longer has potential to be a recurring character.

Or does he? Dun dun dunnnnnn!!!

In retrospect, this comment is stupid.

Great job, guys. I love it as always.

Beth elbow deep in corpsey's think-muscle in panel 4 is quite possibly the best drawing of Beth to date. Good work skrael

@Solem Saje - I will miss Ole Corpsey!

@JimiRaffety - He's more like a recurring prop :D

@RedJar - I agree, I think it was well done!

Yeah, I was going to make a comment about the size of the grave John is digging ,but everyone has already beaten me too it. Hey, everyone needs a hobby though, and if grave digging is John's, more power to him.

And yeah, Beth looks great in panel 4. Definitely shows that deep down inside there's still a brain-eatin' zombie inside.

I kind of want that image for a desktop now lol :D

DO IT! All my funny and educated-sounding comments have been taken already...but I would definitely use a Beth wallpaper.
Magravan edit delete reply
I'll ask her, but I can't do it, so it's up to her if she has the time ;)
Magravan edit delete reply
Okay, she made it into a wallpaper :D Link is on the forum in the old Wallpaper topic!

Considering getting a plain white t-shirt from Zazzle? They sent me a code that gives 50% off, but only for 4 hours (Noon - 4pm EST, I think). If you've been wanting one, this seems like a good deal, so I figured I would pass it on.


I presume you would just use this code when you do the check out.. I'm not trying to hawk Zazzle or anything, I personally have no real inclination toward them at all (especially after they kiboshed my Thrill for Brains t-shirt) .. But this seems like a good deal, and if you're wanting a shirt, I'm sure that you'd rather a 50% off shirt.

Edit: I think it's over now, only 20% now..

Wait, so it's a human corpse and not a zombie suicide? He did shoot his head after all. So either zombie brains are edible or she's wasting a human brain. I mean she's a doctor, they could get some DNA and like, clone brains or see what the brain is made out of to synthesize more, or is that how they already make TOGM?
