My thoughts… Like a zombie taking a bullet to the head, I fell instantly for Zombie Tramp Vol. 1 back in 2013! It delivered bloody zombie action with snappy dialogue and plenty of twists! I loved Dan Mendoza’s clean, vibrant illustrations highlighted by minimal, basic colors. Oh, and Janey’s evil zombie smile, at the end, is cool and creepy! Vol. 2 , after a misprint fiasco, delivered more gory zombie tramp carnage with Mendoza’s signature style; while the ongoing series adds fresh colors to Mendoza’s undead call girl without staining her dark heart! Zombie Tramp a guilty grindhouse pleasure! Highly recommended for fans of zombies… and tramps!
