HooHa Goes Digital

I enjoy reading comics on my iPad. After a lifetime of collecting, storage space gets pretty tight. So having a nice little collection that only takes up a few gigabits on a hard drive is very convienent. Since I started this little publishing venture, I’ve been working to be able to offer my books as downloadable PDFs. I’m happy to say that, with the help of Ka-Blam and Indy Planet, they are ready.

The links to the left go to Indy Planet’s online ordering site where you can choose between print versions of the books at regular price, or full digital versions for only 99 cents for the regular issues and $1.99 for the longer books, like 12-Way. Choose from the menu options under the book description, checkout and download the comics. Easy and painless.

Episode 52


Sometimes Zombie Marge and I just need a break from each other. It was great to take a month off from the strip and work on some other ideas for a change. But I wasn't even that far from good ol' Zombie Marge. I was putting the finishing touches on the second issue of ZM Comix & Stories, which should be on sale at the fall conventions. It will have the first half of The Mothman Cometh! storyline, plus some surprise backup features.

But now it's time to get back to work. We pick up the story in mid-escape with the human survivors of Purgatory Park's zombie infestation. Meanwhile Zombie Marge remains in space, a prisoner of the invading aliens who are in control of the zombies. We will get back to her in a couple of episodes.

Well, there you have it. An innocent young couple dies and the monster goes free, gotta love these morally uplifting tales from the fabulous fifties. That concludes the preview of the next issue of SHAM Comics. Zombie Marge returns tomorrow with even more mayhem. See you!

The original story was the cover feature in Tales of Horror #2 in 1952 and featured one of the oddest monsters who did, indeed, live in a swimming pool. My version mixes in a little H.P. Lovecraft and some good old real estate scams. Enjoy!

Sneak Peek

The next issue of SHAM Comics is coming along nicely. It's an all-horror issue, featuring some grisly pre-code tales of murder and mayhem, completely rewritten as cynical, sarcastic satire in the SHAM tradition. It starts off with Frank Frazetta's only horror cover and contains four morbid stories plus horror-related ads.

While I work on the next episode of Zombie Marge this week, stop by the blog every day and read  pages from the lead story "The Pool Thing," a torrid tale of lust, revenge and real estate.
