Review: Rocko’s Modern Afterlife #1

Rocko's Modern Afterlife #1

One of my favorite movies of all time is the zombie movie, Shaun Of The Dead.  It stars my two favorite actors, Simon Pegg and Nick Frost. Their collective talent alongside Edgar Wright is something comedy fans have been enjoying for years. Each of their movies have found a way to connect to every type of genre.

What made me connect to Shaun Of The Dead is that it made it relatable to movie fans. Their characters were normal guys. It even made fun of many of the tropes that the genre usually transfixes on to hilarious results. It made me wonder how the zombie apocalypse would affect some of our favorite characters? In the first issue of Rocko’s Modern Afterlife we find our what happens when zombies hit our favorite neurotic dog.

It has been two weeks since people have started to act strange, particularly Mr. Bighead, as a zombie virus has hit Rocko’s city. For the first time, in a long time, he gets holed up in his house and a little bit stir crazy, as we also catch up with Heff, who now makes a living by playing video games. Before long, the zombie hoards, invade his house which now includes his dog, Heff. By issue’s end, he and his dog, Spunky, must find refuge, with his remaining uninfected friend, Filburt.

Overall, a story that feels equal parts Shaun Of The Dead and The Walking Dead while still remembering that this is for kids. The story by Anthony Burch is funny, and action packed. The art by the creative team leaps off the pages. Altogether, a story that will make you feel for these characters and will make you fall for them .
