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.

The Zombie Dickheads of ZomBcon and LBCC 2011

The Dickheads convention train keeps a-rolling, folks, and one of my favorite things is doing zombie portraits of people in the back of the book. Here is a sampling of the ones I did at ZomBcon and Long Beach Comic Con. I present to you some brand-new Zombie Dickheads!

Man, oh, man! What a wild time at Seattle's ZomBcon this past weekend! The Dickheads made their big debut, and people really embraced them as their own.

Zombie Dickheads ARE coming to Seattle's ZomBcon!

Things are in a bit of a scramble here at the Safe House, as we get ready to head up to Seattle for ZomBcon, the West Coast's biggest zombie convention. We're all very excited to bring the Dickheads out to the undead masses. In addition to copies of the one-shot, we're going to have at the table an exclusive, limited-edition print of the Dickheads trying to blend in with the Seattle zombie crowd. It's a small run of 50 prints, which'll be signed and numbered, so act fast while supplies last.  Check it out here:

See you all in Seattle!

Also, just wanted to thank everyone that's ordered books so far. Orders are shipping with new ones on the way. There have been people asking about spreading the word to their local retailers, and I'm going to start putting together flyers and retailer packs that I'll have here on the site that can be printed out and distributed if you'd like. In the meantime, just direct them to this site. And if you're a retailer that would like to order copies of the book, drop me a line directly at I'm a one-man shop at the moment, so the fact that many of you want to help out means the world to me.

Zombie Dickheads Crash Nashville Comics & Horror Fest!

Hey there, Dickheads! Just got back from the Nashville Comics and Horror Fest, and I'm still reeling from a whirlwind of emotions. Going into the show, I was a little bummed since, due to a printing error, I didn't have any copies of the Zombie Dickheads one-shot for the show. Add to this the fact that people were asking about it, and/or were sold on the concept from the title alone, and I had nothing to sell them. Add to THAT the fact that the Nashville crowd was hungry for all things zombie (seriously, every other word heard at the show was "zombie".) So, I was in a bit of a funk. I felt as if I had let the people down. That is, until I saw two very familiar faces making their way through the crowd towards my table...

Good News, Bad News

Ok, Dickheads, there's good news and bad news. First, the bad news: Due to a binding error, all of the Zombie Dickheads one-shots have been bound backwards. The good news? The backwards books look fantastic.

Unfortunately, this means that I'm not going to have books for the Nashville Comics and Horror Fest this weekend. But I will have a mailing list ready, so everyone that was planning on buying a book this weekend, come by and drop me your info, and I can make sure you get one when they go on sale on the website.

Sorry, folks. But rest easy, knowing that those responsible have been brought to justice.

Dickheads in the news!

The word is out on the street, the internet, uh, street, about Zombie Dickheads! Check out the Press page for archived news and mentions. Since some of these have the same info, and you're all such busy people, here's a brief rundown:

Dickheads progress - One-shot COMPLETE!


It's been about two months of hard work, long sleepless nights, and I look more and more like Christian Bale in the Machinist, but the debut Zombie Dickheads one-shot is complete!

So you're probably saying, "Oh, good for you! You've finished the book, but what does that have to do with me? When do I get my hands on one of these bad boys?"

Well, tough shit, I'm not gonna tell you.

Zombie Dickheads pinup by Zees Moreno

Up on Zees' blog is the final to his Zombie Cola pinup for the one-shot! As I've mentioned here before, Zombie Cola was an original concept Zees had way back when that is totally in the vein (pun intended) of Zombie Dickheads. 

When I was putting the one-shot, and I asked him if he wanted to do a pinup, he was totally inspired to dust off Andy the zombie, and I couldn't be happier. I think there's definite crossover potential. Stay tuned for more on that.

Zombie Dickheads cover final

Here's the final art for the cover to the one-shot in all it's full-color gory, I mean "glory". Be on the lookout for this image when I hit the shows in Oct. and through the next year!

Dickheads progress - Cover WIP

Hoo boy! It's been a flurry of activity here at the Safe House, Dickheads. Some updates!

Just finished colors on the last of the interior pages for the brand-new 24-page Dickheads adventure, "28 Minutes Later". Now I'm on to the cover! Here's a sneak peek at the inks!

I wanted something bold and in-your-face to contrast with the action-less nature of the characters. Kind of passive-aggressive -- just like the Dickheads! Fun Fact: the composition of the piece is based off of the poster for The Lost Boys. Now, Josh is no Jason Patric, but Jason Patric wouldn't look so hot with half of his face ripped off, would he?

Also, the pinups keep rolling in. Here's a WIP on a pinup from my good pal Rob Reilly, the creator of the upcoming comic mini-series, "A.K.A."! Here, Rob envisions Josh feeling a bit nostalgic about when he used to eat food of any kind. I like to call this piece, "In Memory of Meat".

Some pics of the process behind this piece can be found on Rob's blog.

We're fast approaching the first show on the Zombie Dickheads Fall tour, Nashville Comic and Horror Fest! I've been burning the midnight oil, as well at the morning, noon and evening oil getting the book together. After the cover comes lettering and book layout. I've got an IV hooked up for meals so I don't have to leave the old workstation, so I think I'm good!

Who's that zombie...

Dickheads progress: The Quickening

Well, Dickheads, the art is almost complete for the one-shot, and pinups are rolling in. Here's a work-in-progress from my very talented brother-from-the-same-mother, Zees! He was inspired by Zombie Dickheads to bring back his long-lost comic Zombie Cola. Could a crossover be far behind?

There's also some more big news on the way, but it's still too soon to tell. I will say that it's got everyone here at the safe house very excited. And you folks'll be the first to know!

Zombie Dickheads pinup by Chris Herndon

Greetings fellow Dickheads,

Just wanted to give you a sneak peek at some of the pinups for my very talented pals that I'm going to include in the Zombie Dickheads one-shot. This one comes from my good friend, Chris Herndon, co-creator of the hilarious Living with Zombies comic series, and one twisted so-and-so.

You can check out more of Chris' work at his website,

Dickheads on deviantART

I was lucky enough to get interviewed by the lovely Susan Coffey for deviantART as part of their coverage of SDCC 2011.  I talk about Zombie Dickheads and art, both regular and deviant.

Zombie Tom Selleck

Here's a detail of a panel from the upcoming Dickheads one-shot.  Actually, it's not the real Tom Selleck, but it's a zombie who looks like Tom Selleck.  'Cause you know there's always one in every horde...

Zombie Dickheads - SDCC mentions

For those unaware, San Diego Comic-Con, one of the largest comic conventions in the country, dare I say the world, was a few weeks back.  I was lucky enough to be set up in Artists' Alley, as I have for the past 6 or so years.  Now, I know what you're thinking, when's the last time anyone got anything good in an alley, besides smack?  But Artists' Alley is a great place at a comic con to meet all of the folks that create the comic books that they then turn into your favorite movies and video games.  Where are we?  In the alley.

This year, Artists' Alley was sponsored by deviantART, which is one of my favorite sites devoted to artists of all types.  They had two large jumbotron screens showcasing our art, as well as a computer setup with Wacom tablets where we could do some live drawing.  It was a pretty sweet setup.

So, anyway, I was on-hand in the Alley, promoting Zombie Dickheads, pressing the flesh (pun intended),  doing sketches, and what-not, and I was approached by the fine folks at fearNET to talk about my new book.  I like their site and network a whole lot, and they like me, so that's pretty great.

I also got a sweet mention (along with one silly-ass photo of me) from Scott De Las Casas over at boingboing!  I'm very excited to spread the infected word about my favorite band of zombie hipsters.  Anyone else wants to talk dickheads, feel free to drop me a line.

Welcome, dickheads!

Welcome to the home of the ZOMBIE DICKHEADS -- a comedic look at the undead apocalypse from the point of view of four dysfunctional zombies who don't eat human flesh, as they attempt to find a place of their own in a world where they don't fit in amongst other zombies, humans, and each other.  

The Dickheads first appeared in the Zombie Bomb Vol. 4: Dark Daze from Terminal Press.  A 48-page one-shot is on its way in Oct., to be sold at this year's conventions, with digital download to follow soon after.  The one-shot will reprint the original Zombie Bomb story with an all-new 24-page story and pinups by some of my favorite comics artists.

I'll be making announcements here -- works in progress, press, and convention appearances -- all the dickhead news that's fit to print.  But you'll have to check it out here, folks, because Zombie Dickheads are NOT coming to get you.

They have better shit to do.
