Greetings, Fanboys and Fangirls!
We at Fanboy Comics are doers, so we really dig new projects. We’re also comic book fans, so art is really important to us. And, our dedication to the zombies of the world really can’t be overstated. Understandably, we were more than a little excited when we got wind of Z.A.P., the Zombie Art Project.
Toy sculpture/artist Mikie Graham is the individual responsible for the undead toy horde that is the Zombie Art Project. Graham’s zombies are shambling off at the pace of eight customized and zombified Playmobil figures a week, all leading up to a culmination on Halloween 2011, when he will release a completely custom play set.
I’ll come right out with it: if you care about good writing in games and you’re one of the few that seems to know that the Warhammer 40K universe did space marines and chainsaw weapons first, Space Marine deserves serious consideration. The rich Warhammer 40,000 (that’d be 40,000 A.D.) dystopia—a mix of Starship Troopers, the Cthulhu mythos, and George Orwell’s 1984, complete with a Big Brother equivalent—and its titular marines brought to bear in the story of a strategic industrial planet that’s under siege by marauding space Orks. You read that correctly. There’s also a space Sauron, but that comes later and really, really shouldn’t be a spoiler if you’ve read any of the advertising (or know anything about the 40K setting).
