Unusual Heroes: Zombie Love (ZuZupetal Press, 1992)

Zombie Love #1 features the work of Jeromy Cox, who created the characters and story about a guy named Nathaniel with a pumpkin for a head and his desire for a girl named Olivia. Only problem is...he's dead.

There isn't too much of a plot in this first issue, as we meet Nathaniel as he endures a nightmare about dying.

He wakes up and ponders his relationship with Olivia.

Olivia receives a gift of flowers from Nathaniel.

Nathaniel and Geoffrey discuss the dreams he's been having.

I had a bit of a hard time understanding the story of this first issue of Zombie Love, but apparently I am not alone...the respectable Jim Shooter writes a letter in the letters page at the end of the book praising Zombie Love for it's strangeness...but also wondering out loud why Nathaniel has a pumpkin for a head.

More Halloween goodness coming once I get over this flu!
