Welcome to another tailored review at Comic Unknown. We return to the creative team of Caleb Thusat and Katrina Kunstmann for another series known as Zed. Unlike Alter-Life, Zed is a gray scaled story that follows a duo (one alive, the other not so much) in search of a scientist for answers. Set at the end of a zombie outbreak, our main character Zed was involved in an experiment that caused him to become a zombie but somehow manage to stay with his humanness. As Zed and his mortician Bill locate the hospital where he might find some answers, they stumble their way to get in. Fighting the zombie hunger, Zed gets flesh hungry when more infected are around him, Zed manages to get some unnecessary attention and get injured long the process. Fortunately for him, Bill manages to sow him back together when needed and build him anew. The story has these two fighting their way through zombies and government officials as if it is just another Tuesday. They trek through the city as if it is just another mundane trip to god knows where.
Written by Caleb Thusat, Zed Issue One takes a different turn than the usual zombie book. Allowing Zed to keep his humanity, intelligence, and some sanity, Thusat's storytelling is highly entertaining. The story launches the readers into a buddy adventure with the zombie twist and the complimentary art style can make the series comparable to an old-fashioned sci-fi cartoon. Katrina Kunstmann's art style creates a world that is attempting to restore from the zombie plague. Its grayscaled color scheme fits perfectly as it sets the tone for the post-apocalyptic story and allows the reader to project themselves into a zombie environment without any bites. If readers need an arm or any other limb to find Zed Issue One, they can be purchased as a physical copy or digital copy at the Village Comic site with a Halloween Variant that is still available. The Zed-iverse can be followed on Facebook as well as Village Comic's site for any news and updates.
