Ladies and Gentlemen, I welcome you to this, the beginning of Dead of Summer.
After months of hype, I (Marty Day, fine writer of this comic), and the fantabulous artist Nick Borkowicz (aka Ghostfreehood) proudly present this first of what we hope to be many installments in our Baltimore based zombie adventure. As you can tell from this comic already, it’s written in a serial style format, something that we hope allows us to stand outside from the pack when it comes to the highly populated webcomic world. Jump on here, kids, as it’s going to be an exciting ride through the City that
ReadsFeeds, Baltimore, Maryland.
This comic is an ever growing, ever changing entity, and in turn, we welcome your praise (we hope), suggestions, and comments (please keep the 4 letter words to a minimum) over at our brand spanking new forums. In addition, here on the site, we have a selection of some of the behind the scenes of making the comic to this point, including the always entertaining zombie reference photos, featuring our good friends from local Baltimore bands Avec and Karmella’s Game.
That reminds me…keep an eye on those zombies in the comic, you never know who you might see next.
And hey! If you’re reading this and enjoying it, come out and support the Baltimore Art Scene, as TONIGHT at 7pm, at the Ottobar in lovely Charm City, Nick, along with photographer Matt Roth, and fellow artist Jeremy Glab, display their art as part of the “Monsters & Mayhem” exhibit and also celebrate the beginning of this here webcomic. Good music, good drinks, and even a little bit of Ghostfreehood/Dead of Summer merch will be available (shiny new pins!), so come out tonight and have a good time.
