To save himself, he may have to save us all. How tedious.
Act 1 of Mr. Guy: Zombie Hunter is divided into four 8-page arcs.
Each Arc is illustrated by a different artist keeping that flavor totally fresh. To see everyone who helped make Mr. Guy come together so far, check the CREDITS page.
Arc 1: Stoopid Vermin
Mr. Guy recalls the night he was minding his own business, babysitting a cow, when a bunch of decomposing weirdos showed up and started biting! Before he knew it, he’d been gnawed on by some jerk and gained a skeletal sidekick called Spooky, who took up residence in his rotting arm. The duo set off to cure themselves by finding the source of the zombie apocalypse—and saving the world on the way.
Arc 2: A Damned Drink
Mr. Guy moseys into Muskrat City with Spooky in his arm, looking for a shot of Shwhiskey. Instead, he finds himself surrounded by the undead. Using his best martial arts training, Mr. Guy lays into those who’d eat his brains…and discovers his new pal Spooky grants his infected limb with neato powers!
Illustrated by Walter Ostlie (Shiver Bureau, Haxor, Cubicles, Metalshark Bro).
Arc 3: Muskrat City
Turns out the whole damn town of Muskrat City is infested with the infected! Mr. Guy and Spooky fight their way out of a hardware store, but all their implements of destruction aren’t enough to hold the horde at bay. When they climb through an open window to escape the ravening townspeople, they find themselves in a lab where the ZMB Virus may have begun.
Illustrated by Diana Camero (Guts).
Arc 4: Resident Viral
Look, Mr. Guy didn’t get infected with a floating skull just so he could be ripped to shreds by a drooling, tentacled lab experiment gone wrong! Determined to escape this new threat, he and Spooky look for help from a mysterious stranger who’d rather play at puzzles than help save the world. Better escape to the sewers so they can live to fight on in Act 2!
Illustrated by Jacey Chase (Far Away, Junction).
What’s this Mr. Guy biz all about, anyway?
Mr. Guy: Zombie Hunter is a zombie-apocalypse caper of ridiculous proportions. Written by Oneshi Press co-founder Jayel Draco, the book is a 12-chapter saga exploring a smattering of zombie-apocalypse tropes. Each 8-page mini-story is paired with a different illustrator to create a brand-new comic book style we’re calling an “art-thology.” Cute, right? This unique approach gives the continuous story rich variations in flavor to keep you turning them zesty pages.
Typically, any given zombie apocalypse story, will have you suspend disbelief and enter a world where their mythos is the canon-proper lore. Mr. Guy: Zombie Hunter however, suffers no such delusions. Each story arc takes on a different pop-culture version of the zombie apocalypse as our erstwhile warrior tries to figure out where the whole thing began. Could it have been a retrovirus? Perhaps a voodoo spell? Maybe divine retribution? How about GMOs? Are we saying it’s aliens?
Tag along as Mr. Guy tries to uncover the origins of the end of the world. He and his floating-ghost-skull sidekick, Spooky, have been cursed to suffer each other for all time. To free themselves from this curse, he’s got to find a cure for himself…which means he’ll have to save the whole hecking world, too.
Honestly? He’s less than stoked about it.
