Roadkill Zoo

In the secluded backcountry swamplands of Louisiana, a voodoo priest uses magic to bring roadkill animals back to life—allowing the ravaged zombies to seek revenge on the hapless drivers who killed them!

In this particular case, the decayed and decimated creatures target a group of rich college kids that end up stranded at an old abandoned plantation house. The only thing wrong with this story (the imagery is appropriately gross and the tale itself is original and well-written) is that the kids are so obnoxious that they don’t even like each other—after a few pages you’re probably going to be cheering for the zombie critters!

Ironically, and more than a bit tragically, this series has also come back from the dead: Originally scheduled for release in 2005, it was delayed when an Indonesian tsunami destroyed Budi Setiawan’s original artwork, along with everything else he owned.
