Vampire, Werewolf, Zombie

October 29, 2010

I just came up with a game, and  fits in nicely with the whole Halloween thing.

It’s called: Vampire, Werewolf, Zombie

It’s pretty simple, all you do is think of someone (can be a friend but a celebrity is better) and decide whether they’re a vampire, werewolf or zombie.

For example Arnie is a zombie because he hasn’t got the finesse to be a vampire, he’s not hairy or dextrous enough to be a wolf and you could easily picture him eating a person.

With some people it’s just not debatable. Michael Jackson for example is a Zombie, Christopher Walken is a Vampire and Glenn Danzig is a werewolf (mostly because he’s one in real life too).

Try it out!

Here are some ideas of people to start with…

Johnny Cash, William Shatner, Hulk Hogan, Robin Williams and Frank Sinatra.

The Dead Will Rise

June 20, 2010

On the 25th of June 2009 Michael Jackson died. Around the same time the Blackest Night event was going on in the DC comics universe.

All these dead superheroes were being resurrected left right and centre. I figured the only logical step for me was to combine the two.

Why not MJ? He was a hero to quite a lot of people in a way, if you just saw on the news the way people were flocking to pay their respects. Shrines had been set up all over central London, there was one I remembered in particular outside the Lyric Theatre in the West End where ‘Thriller’ the Michael Jackson musical was running.

I guess it was the obvious thing to use him in his Thriller outfit since the Black Lanterns are a bunch of zombies, well intergalactic zombies with superpowers that don’t die to be exact.

I started drawing on the 26th of June and had finished it by the 28th. I then forgot about it completely for just over half a year. I got round to inking and finishing it yesterday. I guess it serves as a sort of tribute to him. Better late than never, and in time for the 1st anniversary of his death.

Black Lantern Jackson…

RISE!
