The thirteenth book exhibition of my blog! Which seems fitting considering this book’s horror themes… (That, and I’m also writing this post on December the 13th. Thirteen, thirteen everywhere.)

Last week, I exhibited the second entry in the Month Boys series, The Month Boys & The Monster Ice-Skating Rabbit. Apparently that and the first Month Boys comic were the only two in that series, so it’s the last one in my portfolio (though I think there might be others that have been lost to the past). But hey, at least Danger November‘s back for today! We haven’t heard from her for a good while…

Last time, DN went out to save the world from the evil Daleks, of Doctor Who fame. This time, she’s touching on the supernatural and paranormal and flying into the world of zombies. Or to be more specific – zombie dogs.

Based on the comic in the Captain Underpants story The Invasion of the Incredibly Naughty Cafeteria Ladies, this comic replaces the cafeteria ladies from the original story with dogs who run a cafe in a local funhouse. (See what I mean by most of these comics being based on Captain Underpants comics?) However, one night they are accidentally locked inside by the janitor (who doesn’t realize they are still inside the cafeteria), prompting them to survive by eating out of the trash (yuck yucky yuck!) and subsequently causing their untimely deaths from severe food poisoning. The janitor only then realizes his fatal mistake and goes to bury the dogs on a hill… which turns out to be haunted, as that night lightning strikes each of the dogs’ graves and brings them back to life as the undead…

Now everyone’s favourite calendar superheroine, Danger November, must put her weaknesses to the test against this unknown force she has never battled before. It’s not very often you fight the undead with only your strength – let alone undead dogs. (Except maybe in that film Shaun of the Dead, a London-based parody of the classic zombie flick Dawn of the Dead, where the eponymous Shaun fights zombies with only a baseball bat and crowbar.)

… but Halloween was two months ago? Shouldn’t I be focusing on Christmas right now? I’ve got a couple of festive-themed artworks to exhibit on this blog soon…
