Every few weeks I’ll randomly come across a comic book at my local shop that I’ll know nothing about. It’s a 50-50 chance on whether I’ll take a chance on a book and when I do, it’s also a toss up on whether or not I’ll like the book. Luckily enough, I loved this book. Zeke Deadwood is, as the title implies, a zombie lawman whose curse and gift is to roam the Wild West to bring justice to those who could care less about the law and those who protect it. Both Zeke and his zombie horse are of the classic zombie breed, as in the slow moving zombies. There are two gags based on this idea that had me smiling as I read and re-read the panels. Another gag that plays through most of the book also had me laughing, and although it borders on being overused, I think it works and adds another fun element to the story.

It’s a fun book that reminds me, in essence, of Ben Templesmith’s Wormwood: Gentleman Corpse. My one complaint would be the black and white art. As I read this comic, I put voices to all of the characters, something I rarely do when reading anything. The pencils remind me of Skottie Young and I would’ve rather had seen a sepia tone instead of the monochromatic color palette. All in all, it’s my pick of the week regardless of the strong week of comics and I hope they continue the further adventures of Zeke Deadwood: Zombie Lawman.
