As Zombie Tramp makes her way through the Southwest, she stops for a bite at a local fast food chain. It seems that ordering off the menu at this chicken joint can land you in the nugget grinder though, so Janey will have to wield her budding necro powers well if she wants to stay undead! Janey’s prize possession, her copy of the Necronomicon that helps her blend in and survive as an undead zombie tramp amongst the living, has gone missing. Now can she retrieve the book even though its new owner stirs long lost feelings as well?
I have to tell you, when I opened up my first issue I didn’t know what to expect. Then I opened another, and another, and I found myself quite the fan. I never thought I’d get into Zombie Tramp so much, but it totally grew on me. Eight issues in with the ongoing series, and I am still very much intrigued by Janey.
The undead road trip continues, and Janey is on the hunt for her Necronomicon. Lucky for her, it has landed in the hands of a nerd who manages to summon her right to it. He actually reminds her of someone from her past, and after a unusually emotional flashback tale, this nerd is in the for night of his life. No good deed goes unpunished as Janey finds out the next morning, but in typical Zombie Tramp fashion, she makes sure his bad deed is harshly punished.
Most of this issue goes without the usual gore and spends its time illustrating pretty normal scenes. That is, normal with the exception of a completely naked zombie hottie. But, an issue of Zombie Tramp would probably be weird without any blood and guts, which are drawn as gross as always in the best way.
There really should be no shock factor with Zombie Tramp by now if you’ve stuck with it this far. And even Janey deserves some Valentines love right? She does as far as I’m concerned and also deserves to have this issue of her book bought by all you fellow nerds on your next trip to the shop.
