Almost SOLD OUT!

Greetings, Dickheads!

Been lying low for the past few months. Freelance work and convention travel have kept me pretty busy. Between art directing the new Xiaolin Chronicles cartoon and drawing the Roddenberry Ent./Arcana Pub. graphic novel, Worth, I've been neglecting my poor, little, rotten bastards. But fear not, fans! Once these projects are clear, Zombie Dickheads #2 is waiting to be completed.

In the meantime, there's some good news and some bad news. The good news is Zombie Dickheads #1 is almost completely SOLD OUT! The bad news is Zombie Dickheads #1 is almost completely SOLD OUT! Naturally, this came as quite a bit of a shock to me, considering the puerile nature of the humor involved, as well as the repellant title choice. But you folks have proven me wrong, time and again, by saying with your hard-earned dollars that, YES, you really like this book, and, YES, you want more!

As it stands, I have only 8 copies of the book left that I'm taking with me to the upcoming Denver Comic Con in Denver, CO this weekend, as well as the one-day Mile High Comics Denver Comic Con Pre-Party on Thursday! After that, there are no more. But to those uninitiated, fear not! I'm working on the digital release of issue #1 as I type this, so that folks will still be able to get their hands on the Dickheads, albeit in virtual form.

From 500 to 8. Not bad for a bunch-a dead guys.
Despite the books being out of print for the time being, there's still more Dickheads on its way in the form of original prints for shows. I'm also working on getting a print store set up here on the site for you to obtain some of the past couple years' limited edition show prints that are still available. Once I can get clear of the remainder of my obligations to my evil, soul-crushing, corporate masters (to whom I am grateful for steady employment.)

To those of you who took a chance on a boy from Jersey, and his dream of a comic book with the word "dick" in the title, I thank you all. This was sort of an experiment for me, to see if I could put out a book on my own and have it actually make something of itself in a very tough marketplace, and you all showed me that, hey, I'm not half bad.

See you all on the con trail!
Chris

Dickheads come to Zombietown, USA!

Hey there, Dickheads! Very excited to be heading to the Pittsburgh Comicon this weekend, Apr. 20-22, in beautiful Monroeville, PA. For those not in the undead know, Monroeville, and more specifically the Monroeville Mall were featured prominently in George A. Romero's horror classic Dawn of the Dead. So what better convention to bring my Zombie Dickheads to than the Home of the Zombie? This also presented a fantastic opportunity to show my love for Romero's zombie universe by doing an homage to the posters for those films featuring our Dickheads in a series of prints debuting at the show.




All three of these prints are going to be available at the show this weekend, along with copies of Zombie Dickheads Are NOT Coming to Get You. Hope to see you there!

Lost Zombie

Hey there, Dickheads!

I'm back from a whirlwind tour of 4 shows in a row, and I'm beat. There'll be a con report very soon, but first I'm putting the call out to all of you to find a very special zombie who got his portrait done in a copy of Zombie Dickheads at Wondercon in Anaheim, CA two weekends ago and missed picking up his sketch. Any help finding him would be appreciated. Drop me a line at zombiedickheads@gmail.com

Con game 2012

It's a new year, Dickheads, and that means new opportunities to reach out to those fellow zombie dickheads out there in this beautifully rotten country of ours and bring them into the fold. First up is the brand-new Image Comics Expo in Oakland, CA, Feb. 24-26. It's going to be an amazing collection of Image Comics talent, both original and new recipes. I'm going to have copies of the Zombie Dickheads one-shot along with a brand-new exclusive signed and numbered print you can only get at the show. Here's a sneak peek:

"Con Zombies"

And that's not all. I'm planning on having exclusive prints for as many of the shows that I can. It's the least I can do in-between working on the next issue of Dickheads, which is coming as soon as I can finish up new freelance projects. Stay tuned!

I've updated the Appearances page for all of 2012's con appearances so far. Check back during the course of the year to see any new additions. Hope to see you around! And if you're a con organizer who'd like for me to come out to your show, drop me a line at zombiedickheads@gmail.com.

Best,
Chris

The Zombie Dickheads of Great Allentown Comic Con and Nuke the Fridge Con 2011

Zombie Dickheads continue to sweep the nation! Here are the Zombie Dickheads from the last shows of 2011, the Great Allentown Comic Con in Allentown, PA and Nuke the Fridge Con in City of Industry, CA.

Happy New Year, Dickheads!

Well, 2011 was a real doozy! Economic woes, political upheavals throughout the globe, natural disasters, looming catastrophes in internet censorship and civil liberties -- at least we can all look forward to 2012, where we'll all get blown to bits in the upcoming apocalypse!

But just because the world's going to hell in a Gucci handbag, that doesn't mean folks are giving up on a time-honored New Year's tradition: resolutions! I recently asked the Zombie Dickheads about theirs, and here's what they had to say.


DENNIS
"This year, I resolve to be a bit more tolerant of my housemates. Their lack of hygiene and consideration for others, not to mention the name-calling -- I need to understand that they can't help the rude, obnoxious, poorly-raised individuals they are, the causes of which are largely societal. A dash of half-hearted empathy, a pinch of condescension, and a heaping handful of pity for those around me are my recipe for a more tolerant new year!"


COLTON
"Resolutions are for deluded idiots who think the key to living better is by lying to yourself that you're in control of how your life turns out. Look at me! You think I planned to look like a Jack O'Lantern all year 'round? Or to be stuck with this pack of fucktards? Maybe I could give up chocolate for a year, or take that spin class I've been putting off, but it won't change the fact that life sucks, and it's only getting worse with each rotation of this miserable ball of shit we all live on."


JOSH
"I resolve to keep being awesome. I've spent my entire life, and most of this afterlife, maintaining a steady regiment of sitting around, working towards nothing, and basically not giving a shit, and it's worked out pretty great so far. Sure, there are some that say we're living in a hell on earth, but I say lower your standards and you'll see it's a wonderful life after all."



LISA
"I resolve to put myself out there more -- go out, try and meet people. I tend to live a pretty sheltered life, and my social life is, like, up and died, y'know? I've just gotta get some new friends. Don't get me wrong, these guys are, well, these guys. I just want to maybe know some... better people, I guess? Does that make me sound like a bitch?"



Thanks, Dickheads! As for yours truly, I resolve to get cracking to bring you more Zombie Dickheads goodness, and those plans are already well under way. Expect to see a buttload more news from our favorite band of hipster deadheads coming soon!

Best,
Chris

Zombie Dickheads storm NC Comicon. News at 11.

Greetings, Dickheads! Here's another tale of convention madness -- this time at the NC Comicon in Chapel Hill, NC! I was there spreading the good zombie word, and I was joined by my cohorts at Lost Story Studios in their promotion of our new horror anthology, DeathCurse, which was a con-exclusive comic produced by Ultimate Comics, the sponsors of the show.
