So if you know that it seems that zombies are popping out everywhere these days. Movies, TV, books, art, tattoos, hell I would not be surprise if you end up finding them on babies diapers soon.

Marvel is at it again with another adventure in the zombie world but this time with a single hero and not the whole Marvel universe. Everyone’s favorite merch with a mouth, Deadpool is the hero, oh god. Deadpool has been dancing around the Marvel universe from book to book like a new social disease. But a lovable social disease much like Wolverine.

After waking up from a food coma Deadpool finds himself alone in a restaurant. Everyone has gone, leaving the restaurant Deadpool finds a note saying that everyone has fled, leaving him locked inside for his protection. Deadpool enters the street and finds that everyone…everyone is gone. Looking back he did see the signs but was in his own world and did not noticed. Eventually Deadpool meets his first zombie and the fun begins.

KinkyDeadpoolLike any good Deadpool comic there is humor and we get it here. Not laugh out loud but a nice snicker here and their. The book is done in black and white and works.  The use of black and white pages of splashing blood gives it a nice effect The only color in the book is Deadpool and in flash backs. I like the effect and it is a nice touch giving it the look of the 1968’s  “Night Of The Living Dead”. Another interesting idea was giving the zombie the ability to speak but only the residual memories of their last thoughts before their death.

The same effect was used in a Doctor Who episode “Silence In The Library”. I have to think that writer Cullen Bunn maybe a fan. Cullen Bunn story is simple and a nice relaxing read and not a strain. Maybe over the next few books things may pick up some more speed. He does throw in bits of humor here and there but not the zany Deadpool that some of us have come to love.

The art work of Ramon Rosanas is major league stuff and enjoyable. Ramon art work is just another example of some of the amazing art work that is available in the comic world. I will keep a eye out for more of his work.

Overall the book is entertaining and worth the price.

So in the end I give “Night Of The Living Deadpool” a 3 3/4 pop out of 5.

Remember comics are to be enjoyed. Not destroyed.

Movie Mondays: The JockStrap Raiders

Hey all you movie/short film/animation lovers. Welcome back.

This time around I have a Student Academy Award Winning CGI short film from Mark Nelson. I can see why this film was nominated. Funny and touching at the same time this beautiful piece of CGI is worth a look. A group of misfits that can not meet the requirements of help fight for their country become the last hope for their nation.  The film is the work of UCLA Mark Nelson as his thesis project. This excellent piece has won many awards, including: Student Academy Award; Best Animation, British Animation Festival; Best Animation Macon Film Festival; Best Narrative Short GI Film Festival; Audience Award Orlando Film Festival.

The Jockstrap Raiders is a animated short film about a group of misfits during world war I. It takes place in Leeds, England where our heroes are all excluded from the war due to various abnormalities. Threatened by the invading German Kaiser and his army, they must learn to become a team and overcome their deficiencies in order to save Britain, and the world.

Movie Monday’s: Dji Death Fails

Hey all you Poppers.

So once again I bring you another installment of Movie Monday’s

This time around I have found this cute and funny CGI short by Simpals.

“A funny and well animated short film by the talented team at Simpals! Dji is an unusual death. The Dark Knight has appeared in a different form. No, he is not white and fluffy. Dji is just terribly unlucky. All he has to do is to take the soul of a dying man. But the screenwriters prepared some obstacles for Dji. Will he manage to overcome them? You’ll see. “

I found this one to be very entertaining and cute it’s all special way. The CGI is great and music is perfect for this piece. There is no dialogue in the short but the story is told simply and is easy to understand. It is not Death’s day.

So once again I ask you to take a few minutes and watch another piece of work done by talented people.
