Short story – Zombie Incidents
It’s dark. You can feel the presence of something reeking of death. Then there are more of them. You look around and find that you are surrounded by zombies that want to devour you. This is the world of Flesh and Leftovers, where tales of zombie incidents will make your skin crawl. Ten short stories are illustrated by nine amazing artists in this graphic spinoff of “Flesh And Leftovers” the novel. Author Rick Pipito has expanded his stories to an audience of artists to bring his zombie apocalypse to life (or unlife).
*** Update. This is now available as a text short story. The comic is currently limited, but the short can be found at Lulu.com in print or with the Eden’s Order Trilogy extras on Amazon in digital form
