Unlikely Zombilicious Friendship Spurs From Zombies vs Cheerleaders Come August 2012
Moonstone is announcing a new Zombies vs Cheerleaders comic by creator Steven L. Frank. This time Frank is focusing his efforts on the unlikely zombie/cheerleader-couple of Becky and Bob.
“Becky and Bob are really fun characters to work with”, says creator Steven L. Frank. “While ZvC is funny, it is also very twisted. B&B is just fun. They argue and fight like a married couple, which is a wink to the zombie versus cheerleader concept.”
Furthermore it seems like Steven L. Frank has been listening to his fans: “Becky & Bob showed up as a back-up story in Zombies vs Cheerleaders #6 and the response was overwhelming, mostly good, ha ha. Bob actually showed up back in ZvC #3 in his own story. We hope people find this Misadventures of Becky & Bob one-shot to be a blast.”
On the artistic side there is plenty of new and old since “We will have a mix of artists for this book, it is an anthology like ZvC. Newcomer Danielle Soloud, who worked on the original B&B story, is on it, as well as ZvC veteran David Namisato, and others.”
It seems like Steven L. Frank has it all figured out, but he has yet one more thing to say: “The second trade comes out later this year, and the recurring title is still selling really well, so #7 will be out next month with more issues coming!”
Here is the complete blurb all rolled into one zombilicious package:
Zombies vs Cheerleaders Presents: The Misadventures of Becky and Bob #1
Straight from the pages of Zombies vs Cheerleaders!
Becky and Bob were introduced in Zombies vs Cheerleaders #6. A plucky cheerleader, Becky, has befriended a middle-aged zombie, Bob. Bob just wants to lead a regular life, although his insistence on hanging around with cheerleaders seems odd to most! Becky, having saved Bob’s “life” from some fraternity guys, feels obligated to protect him and help him feel more human. Read this debut issue of The Misadventures of Becky and Bob as they get into irreverent and crazy high school hi-jinks!
Written by Steven L Frank, with artwork by Danielle Gransuall, David Namisato and others!
Cover by Danielle Gransaull and a 1:10 variant cover by Justin Ridge (Star Wars: Clone Wars).
