I have loved inking every second of this, even though I had to re-work several entire pages just to get it to a place I’m happy with story-wise. As I’ve mentioned before, this one is darker and less jokey than a lot of other Z’lette stories. It’s also closer to what I personally enjoy most in a cartoon. Since I was little, I’ve enjoyed cartoons that are somewhat unsettling, nightmarish, and highly emotive; I hope I’ve managed to capture some of those qualities in this new story.
In case anyone missed Scaryminds’ outlandishly lovely review of Zombolette, here’s a snippet of what they had to say:
“There is no room for Twilight in Zombolette, though our zombie gal is infinitely more interesting than the rather droll Bella. Baccini develops her character well, doesn’t let the overall personality falter at any stage, and for mine presents a concept that should have most dark genre dreamers taking names and notes. Zombolette joins Killeroo as one of the great Aussie creations that alas remains under the radar of the vast majority of comic book readers. I’m not going to say much more, read the book to get the good oil, but if the concept of a zombie with body armour made up of tampons, with an IUD helmet appeals, then dial on in, that’s just for starters. Scarlette Baccini is either stark raving mad, or an unsung genius of the script, your call!”
