Review: Zombie Tramp: Halloween Special 2016
Zombie Tramp returns to celebrate the darkest holiday of the year, and she’s bringing a murderer’s row of friends and creators with her! It’s an all-new, double-sized Hallow’s Eve romp stuffed with twisted tales, murderous tricks, and tainted treats! Featuring the talents of Dan Mendoza, Jason Martin, Bill McKay, Brian Hess, and many more!
I love the slightly obvious but hidden Easter Egg that manages to present itself in the second tale on this anthology comic. Zombie Tramp: Halloween Special manages to bring in another one Action Lab’s horror-centric characters in a surprisingly amusing away. Yet what stands out for me was the third tale which focuses on Zombie Tramp as creature of vengeance and voodoo in 1950’s America.
Each tale has a different style of art as the three artists bring something different to each of them and the issue as a whole. Some are realistic, some are a-little over the top and cartoon-ish, and it gives the book a an odd sense of balance. It works oddly well since it gives the issue two things. The first is a clear break between stories and the second is it enriches each story in a superb manner making each unique.
