  • Fred Van Lente Max Dunbar

    Van Lente was raised by a mystery loving mother who preferred Dorothy Sayers to Agatha Christie, but we won t hold that against her and a wisecracking Woody Allen lookalike scientist father in what appears to be some kind of genetic experiment to write his first novel, TEN DEAD COMEDIANS, even though neither parent nor the son himself would know it for many years Van Lente spent his time between birth and authoring Ten Dead Comedians becoming the 1 New York Times best selling writer of graphic novels like Cowboys Aliens the basis of the feature film , Odd is on Our Side with Dean R Koontz, and the gorily funny Marvel Zombies series He did some other things too, but they hardly seem worth mentioning.

  • I was really excited to see this - finally someone’s written a parody of The Walking Dead comic!, I thought. I looked at the back and saw that the zombies (or “zeds” as they’re known here) are all laughing, in sharp contrast to Robert Kirkman’s ridiculously miserable series, and that The Mocking Dead is written by Fred Van Lente, author of the excellent Archer and Armstrong over at Valiant. This could potentially be a laugh riot - but it’s not, and it’s also not a parody of The Wal [...]


  • The penciling style and the black/white color scheme reminded me of the first few issues of The Walking Dead.The story is basically a quest to track down the remaining copy of an old movie entitled 'The Mocking Dead', which supposedly holds the key to solve the zombie apocalypse. Ridiculous, I know. But everything was cool except the lazy ending.'Goths detained as zombie sympathizers' Haha. You gotta check out the emails and newspaper snippets. Some of the best jokes are found there.Was it just [...]


  • very funny and very nerdy parody that takes itself pretty seriously. love the black and white + red aesthetic. used text as study for color for personal comic


  • Not long enough I had come to a conclusion, that if there is one thing man should stop doing at certain point in life, as he grows older and gains experience, is - don't do promises. Like - at all. At best you can promise to try to do something to the best of your capabilities and that's it. Why? Because broken promises usually lead you to unnecessary disappointment. And that's exactly what I got from this graphic novel.When I read the introduction I was excited - laughing zombies, satire about [...]


  • Parodies are hard to do well. The worst parodies are unbearable, the best deconstruct the tropes. I was afraid The Mocking Dead would be the former, but since I got it as part of a huge Humble Bundle, it was nearly free for me to check out. Luckily it turned out to be less Scary Movie and more like something Mel Brooks would put together. It is a competent story that stands alone without any knowledge of what it parodies. While Spaceballs is funnier if you know Star Wars, it's enjoyable without [...]


  • Fred Van Lente has written an amazing spoof of the zombie-survival subgenre while still managing to create a tense, suspenseful zombie tale. His love of goofy humor and the old horror movies they used to air on "creature feature" TV shows comes through in a tale that tackles a lot more than zombies. Van Lente dissects -- and shows his obvious love for -- geek and nerd culture, with everything from tabletop gaming to the erroneous concept of "fake geek girls" thoroughly examined and when necessar [...]


  • After giving up on The Walking Dead in disgust, I thought I'd try this thing, which isn't really related but is (sort of) marketed as a parody. Given that I set my expectations very low, I was pleasantly surprised by this. It's a bit uneven and sometimes struggles to find the right tone, but along the way it does offer a few effective jokes, some affectionate tributes to cheesy horror cinema and nerd culture, and at least one surprisingly interesting idea. Not a triumph, perhaps, but not a total [...]


  • The artwork was terrific.But on the downside, this wasn't a parody of The Walking Dead, as the title promises. It was instead a rather tired zombie story with a particularly irritating lead character who hits that stereotype of the 'self-indentifying nice-guy who is actually a passive-aggressive man-child arsehole'. So you spend most of the story hoping he gets killed, only for him to fly off into the sunset with the girl of his dreams.Also, I just didn't find it funny. You can't do a comedy par [...]


  • Another parodic take on zombies, this doesn't do anything too original, but does manage to tell a decent story with some nice humor and a couple of strong characters. When zombies appear, the US Government calls in a geek for strategy, with predictably poor results. The book is black and white, and mostly humorous (and it has a couple laugh-out-load moments), but it gets a bit dark too. It's not going to be joining World War Z (the book) in the pantheon of pinnacle zombie stories, but it does a [...]


  • This is probably mis-represented. It is a funny book, and it is a zombie book, but I wouldn't really call it a parody. It's more of an homage--in the vein of Shawn of the Dead-- as opposed to a Max Brooks movie. I will admit that I blazed through it on a plane ride, so some of the details are a bit fuzzy. But I did enjoy it, and I definitely remember lolling a few times


  • Well, at least it was better than my very low expectations. It's a parody of zombie comics, after all. A lot of funny and obscure cultural references (made me feel smart) and a pretty cool story despite annoying characters.





  • It's less an out and out parody and more a commentary on geek culture set against the rise of laughing zombies. Clever and funny at times, it never quite adds up to something satisfying
