The sound of one horn tooting...

Those of you who've been around here a while may remember me talking about my stick-figure zombie comic They Won't Stay Dead!...some of you may have even bought the damn thing. To refresh your memories, it's...umm, a zombie comic done entirely with stick figures and entirely without words, like so:

It also featured such classy scenes as an old lady zombie getting punched in the face, like so:

Well, kids, the stick figures are back and better than ever! I've teamed up, at long last, with my buddy Dirk Manning, proprietor of the awesomely awesome web & print comic Nightmare World to craft a tale about werewolves-stick werewolves!- called Hungry Like the Wolf. Oh yeah, baby. And I don't mean no fancy schmancy David Naughton/American Werewolf in London style lycans with the fingers stretching and the whatnot...I'm talkin' Lon Chaney staring at the camera and slowly getting hairier style lycans, chump. Witness:

Dirk came up with a great, fun story- and who doesn't love drawing little fuzzy stick figure heads? The story is eight pages long, with two pages appearing per week throughout April, beginning today. Go right here and read the first two pages- if you dare!

Hungry Like the Wolf will eventually make its way into print as a flipbook, coupled with another stick figure story by me. It'll be ready for Heroes Con in June where Dirk and I will be appearing together.

Yay! Toot!

And I'm sure you'll make it available for mail order for all of your Canadian stick figure-philes?

Beautiful. Truly beautiful. And fun!

Thanks guys!

And yeah, Des, Canadian collectors will get first dibs! :D I'll definitely keep everyone updated about when it hits the streets, as it were.

Oh dear Lord. I think that easily takes the top spot for Greatest Thing Ever.

Please make them faster!

Dirk Manning said...

Awww yeah!

I'm glad you're all feeling the love, as this is truly, in my opinion, one of the funniest stories I've ever written (followed closely by "Knee Deep in the Dead" -- other story horror movie fans should especially appreciate).

The next installment of "Hungry Like the Wolf' will be up next Thursday, of course, but in the meantime I encourage you all to check out the other 37 stories on the site...

Yeah... we've been doing this a while... ;)
