Mr. Guy: Zombie Hunter is a zombie-apocalypse caper of ridiculous proportions. Our reluctant hero, Mr. Guy, is your average half-goblin dude just trying to get by in his modern high-fantasy world. Then, on a cow-babysitting gig, he gets bitten by some decomposing jerk! Instead of shambling back from the dead, he discovers his bite wound is haunted by a sassy floating skull named Spooky—who comes with neato powers! But there’s a catch: Mr. Guy and his new sidekick don’t always get along. Now, if they want to get away from each other, they’ll have to cure zombieism.
But Mr. Guy isn’t just any comic book. It’s an art-thology! Yes…that is a word we made up, and it refers to one continuous story written by Jayel Draco and illustrated by multiple amazing artists. Each eight-page arc comes with a new artist and breaks down a different pop-culture trope while our cursed crusader investigates what caused the apocalypse…and kicks zombie butt along the way. He’ll have to confront an old west barkeep who won’t serve the living. Only to face a whole town infested with infected… Can a retrovirus cancel the apocalypse, or will it just make things worse? Stay tuned as Mr. Guy saves us all—or dies trying!
Here’s what they’re saying:
“Mr. Guy: Zombie Hunter isn’t your typical zombie story…that is unless your typical zombie story takes you to vastly different locales, incorporates handsome farmers with zombie cows, and the spirit of the dead that inhabits the hero’s zombified arm…Then, yeah. It’s just like your typical zombie story, only BETTER!”
—Erica Schultz (Forgotten Home, Daredevil)
“This comic is uDDerly ridiculous! Loved it!”
