Nothing attracts a shark quite like blood in the water... or dismembered zombie arms! Since the first panels premiered on Daily Dead during the 2017 San Diego Comic-Con, we've been excited to showcase artist Jeff Fuller's living dead comic strip Zomics, which finds the macabre humor in the everyday horrors of a zombie apocalypse. We release a new installment of Zomics every week, and we're excited to share a new panel with Daily Dead readers today!
This week's edition of Jeff Fuller's Zomics is a living dead twist on Steven Spielberg's classic summer blockbuster Jaws, as someone bearing a striking resemblance to Amity Chief of Police Martin Brody is shown using the arms of a nearby zombie—who chose the wrong day to take a boat ride on the Orca—as the tasty chum for a hungry great white shark!
In case you missed Fuller's previous Zomics panels, you can check out all of them in the gallery below, and stay tuned to Daily Dead next Thursday for another installment!
Influenced by Dr. Seuss and The Addams Family creator Charles Addams, Fuller has worked as an award-winning art director for nearly a quarter of a century, garnering multiple Emmy and BDA awards. He turned his artistic talents to zombies when he started thinking about the comedic qualities that would live on in a living dead world:
"The origin of Zomics: While camping with my wife and kids we stared discussing what life would be like if there really were zombies. We decided that it would be a little scary, a little gross and a lot of funny. This was the birth of the single panel zombie comic strip, or ZOMICS for short."
