    First?! Awesome page.

  2. Gamervamp Says:

    ZOMG it updated! yesh!
    …. well that is NOT what I thought I would see with the newest page.
    Fuck, that’s like my zombie nightmare….
    RUN BITCHES RUN!

  3. Lydia Says:

    That’s an impressive perspective. I like it.

  4. Geese Says:

    Would anyone happen to know enough Latin to put “Fear of Running Zombies” into a scientific term? Thats what I think of when I saw this. Terror

  5. Tim Peters Says:

    BADASS page. defiantly a O shit

  6. Caity Says:

    New page looks awesome, I’m glad I’m not the one seeing that on the horizon.

    Geese: “Would anyone happen to know enough Latin to put “Fear of Running Zombies” into a scientific term?”
    Well, since I was subconsciously trying to put off going to sleep anyway, I decided to try and figure it out. It seems that one accepted term for ‘irrational fear of zombies’ is ‘ambulonecrophobia.’ Knowing this, I looked up what ‘run’ basically is in latin and came up with ‘curnecrophobia.’ Now, obviously I could be wrong, but I figure it’s a pretty good guess.

  7. that_guy Says:

    wow this is the first update i’ve ever seen. (only started reading it in may this year) Is awesome can’t wait for more

  8. CavemanCavan Says:

    Have to admit, this is something I didnt see coming. And neither did the “golfers”, Id wager.

  9. soilent Says:

    I had no Latin, so I can’t reform the Words into one.

    move rapidly – propero, volo
    dead – mortuus
    not – non
    fear (sickness) – phobia

    undead – nonmortuus?
    fear of undead – nonmortuuphobia?

    I doubt that original Latin Countries had any real Word for Zombie since they believed in the Underworld, Gods and strong Men brave enough could bring back the Dead.

  10. Eltharrion Says:

    Man, surviving a zombie apocalypse is hard enough, but when they start running at you? You’re doomed. Really, just put the gun into your mouth and pull the trigger. It’s painless that way.

    Or then, they just climb into trees and hope vampires will kill them. And that these zombies don’t know how to climb… Buut, with their current mobility, I think they would just build a pile of corpses and walk up into tree.

    …Is that zombie in the front Matt’s twin brother? ‘Cause he looks just like him if you ask me…

  11. Joe Says:

    Not very impressive for a page that took since May to do, so I guess the next page with actual words in it would probably take longer then?

    It takes so long for a new page that you have to backtrack just refreash your memory on what the story is about.

    Most people who do online comics can get at least one update per week done…This is just blatently lazy… You can flame me if you wantor you can delete this post but nothing will ever change that fact.

  12. Bobby Crosby Says:

    “Not very impressive for a page that took since May to do”

    I wrote it two days ago in about 20 minutes.

    “so I guess the next page with actual words in it would probably take longer then?”

    Probably won’t ever write it because of pieces of shit like you making it seem totally pointless.

    “It takes so long for a new page that you have to backtrack just refreash your memory on what the story is about.”

    How much did you pay for the comic? I’ll give you a full refund. There, you have it now in your pocket.

    “Most people who do online comics can get at least one update per week done”

    Most aren’t making a trillion different comics, but anyway, with fans as retarded as you, I don’t see much of a point in it.

    “You can flame me if you wantor you can delete this post but nothing will ever change that fact.”

    Obviously this is a case of me being lazy when it comes to “Last Blood,” but the more important fact that will never change is how giant of a piece of garbage you are for whining and acting entitled to more frequent updates of a free comic. It always amazes me how people can be so evil to actually seriously complain about such a thing and really believe in their mind that they’re in the right somehow. It’s disgusting. Now someone will say “But you say it updates every Saturday!!! You’re LYING to us!!! YOU’RE the disgusting one and oh my god I can’t believe how you treat your FANS!” #1 — Fuck you, you fucking piece of shit. #2 — Joe is nowhere near a fan — he’s a pure evil piece of shit from hell. #3 — Kill yourself. #4 — Who the fuck cares what some posted update schedule says??? Once you see for the first time that the schedule isn’t met, then you know “Hey, it’s not met all the time, darn, oh well, now I know.” It doesn’t somehow give you the right to seriously be angry and feel like you were wronged when your free gift doesn’t show up as often as you’d like.

  13. koernel Says:

    HUUUUNTER!!!

  14. Peter Says:

    Oh man, I think this deserves an Oh Crap moment from Mac. http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Main/OhCrap

    Also, @Bobby…pwned. Seriously. Some people say not to feed the trolls, other people completely murderize them with a massive chainsaw of awesomeness.

    The latter people probably write zombie comics. >:D

  15. different Joe Says:

    Sigh… That other Joe makes us all look like retards…

  16. Christopher Says:

    *pokes Bobby with a stick*

  17. Christopher Says:

    Oh, and lest I forget: “Run motherfucker… RUN!!!!” Great page.

  18. Catarina Says:

    Please don’t give up on Last Blood. It’s my favorite Zombie comic, both story and art style.

    DON’T GIVE UP! Pieces of shit are everywhere in the world, you can either filter them or kill yourself because escape is impossible

    A great warm hug. I LOVE YOUR WORK!

    Namaste

  19. Ken Says:

    I like it. I am trying to remember… the zombies eyes glow when they are controlled right?

  20. SimRicard Says:

    :(

    we’re still grateful bobby…

  21. Sam Says:

    Joe is not what the rest of us represent. Most of your fans understand that you are giving your time up for free to do this and sometimes the real world gets in the way. As long as you let us know if you ever get boored with this project or take a 6 month hiatus or something, then most of us will keep on checking on back here even if you are runnung a little behind schedial. The comic is more than worth it!

  22. drakythe Says:

    Please continue updating, whenever you can or get the urge to, Bobby, it is greatly appreciated by those of us who enjoy the comic, even if it takes a while to update.

    oh and this is not good O.o

  23. Kaezrer Says:

    I gave the one on the left the codename “Edmund”.

  24. Zaldaran Says:

    Those zombies were HUGE Tiger Woods fans.

  25. Gamervamp Says:

    Wow Bobby Crosby, nice.
    FYI out of all the fans Joe makes up .000000001% of the .00001% of fans that make up the retards of this comic, this rest of us, the 99.99% just love the fact this comic is real and you are still willing to update it. There are some like me that bitch that you take so long but in the end when i see awesomeness like this comic, I forget and I am then ready to wait a new for a update like a loyal dog waiting for a treat. Best example? I’m still waiting for living with zombies and their site went down ^.^ SO fuck the retards that aren’t happy with what they get,m their brats who expect everything to work like they want and don’t get that fact online comics don’t always update to plan, here’s a hint while your waiting read a real book, you know without pictures!
    So again, Joe=smelly ass licker, Last Blood and you=awesomeness

  26. AL_Tech Says:

    I have only posted maybe 2x in the whole comic run and I am damn glad to read it.

    I only wish this was the only webcomic you guys drew…W/marry me and everything else this one was going dry…but it’s back in the saddle!!! YAY!! tyvm very much team!!! HAPPY HAPPY JOY JOY

  27. achrin Says:

    A HOLE IN ONE TIME TO RUN…….it’s like ..”hey i got one !” hey man did you see that …whoops .. feet don’t fail me now …love the irony in this one .. cool

  28. Summer Says:

    I dub the woman on the right Sheena because she looks like one.

    Awesome update! Thank you. :)

  29. Rene Says:

    Hey Bobby, very good comic you got here…. I mean: fucking awesome comic, I readed the all archive in one sit and now I have a lot of work that is gonna be late, thank you very much…. And hey! dont mind the “Fans” like Joe they dont deserve that many words. Keep the good work!!!!!!

  30. David Says:

    Thank you for providing me with free entertainment at your own expense. I really do appreciate it!

    I would like to see frequent, regular updates but won’t complain if I don’t.

    I would love to donate to the comic to encourage further development of the storyline, but my financial situation at the moment doesn’t allow it (damned recession).

    Again, thank you. If you can keep the storyline interesting, continue the comic and expand this into hardcopy comics, I promise to eventually buy them!

  31. blubber Says:

    Wow Bobby that last post was professional.

  32. Horror_Show Says:

    Love this comic… still one of my faves, even if it rarely updates.
    To Joe: Heh… heh heh heh… HAHAHA Hee hee… *snicker snicker*… dude, its free, enjoy it when it comes and be thankful it still does. You aren’t right, you know nothing about webcomics (not that I know much more, but I can’t help but feel superior to a selfrighteous whiner).
    To Bobby: A LOT of what you said was justified, but I think you took it a little far. Oh well. Nice work btw… Dreamless is one of the best works I’ve ever seen.
    To Kaezrer: the one with the wavy hair or with the sweatervest? I like the name Edmund…
    Keep up the good work :D
    *patiently waits*

  33. Dan Says:

    The new page is cool, but as usual, Bobby tearing down whiny fanboys is what keeps me coming back. :)

  34. spoonsprout Says:

    Bobby – awesome work as usual, don’t let the douchebags convince you to stop.

    Whiny douchebags – go away and draw and ink your own on the same schedule and no budget. Show us how it turns out. now, do that for 10 different stories a week.

  35. Nuin Says:

    “Man, surviving a zombie apocalypse is hard enough, but when they start running at you? You’re doomed. Really, just put the gun into your mouth and pull the trigger. It’s painless that way”
    Umm… Hello… Mac has a golf club. Everything is obviously under control.

    Since we’re naming zombies I dub the one in the blue hat Joe. I now feel he should be impaled through the eye with a tree limb and left hanging there as a warning to all other whining pansies.

  36. Chris Says:

    The central zombie in the last panel reminds me of something from Jamie Hewlett!

    Excellent work, don’t let the naysayers get you down!

  37. Rebecca Says:

    oh my gosh! scary. :) I’m so glad to see an update I’ve waited (patiently!) and this one is gorgeous.

    I can’t wait to see the next one, I’m looking forward to it. Don’t let impatient and rude assholes get to you. There’s plenty of happy fans who love your work and have enough manners to simply be happy and thankful when there is an update :)

  38. rgz Says:

    Bobby don’t let a bad comment get to you, you have fans willing to wait for your updates.

    Personally, I don’t think one is EVER entitled to updates to a comic regardless if it is free or not. On the other hand I think he is free to whine all he wants, freedom of speech and all that…

  39. Bobby Crosby Says:

    “On the other hand I think he is free to whine all he wants, freedom of speech and all that…”

    That’s almost as stupid as what he said.

  40. FXWizard Says:

    Bobby, I think Joe has a point.

    before you go postal on me like you did on him, please do me the courtesy of allowing me to elaborate.

    I enjoy LAST BLOOD and look forward to reading it when it comes out; and I’ve added it to my RSS feed so I don’t have to keep checking and getting frustrated with the lack of updates.

    I realize that we’re not paying for your time and, as such, we have no right to demand regular updates – however, would it take much effort to remove “updated every Saturday” from the top of the page? That way new readers (and current ones) wouldn’t get their knickers in a twist over infrequent updates, and you wouldn’t have to go off on a rant like your reply to Joe. Sure, he was being extremely sarcastic but IMO you came across far worse than he did.

    Anyway, that’s all I’m going to say on the matter. If you feel the need to tell me to fuck off and kill myself, go ahead. I’ll just wait patiently for the next LB update and then, if I think of it, I’ll check the comments.

  41. Bobby Crosby Says:

    “would it take much effort to remove ‘updated every Saturday’ from the top of the page?”

    You obviously haven’t read many of my comments, where I’ve addressed this a thousand times. #1 — Stating an update schedule helps in some small way to inspire me to write more. If there was no update schedule listed, there would be less comics. #2 — Your argument is 100% false when you say that readers “wouldn’t get their knickers in a twist over infrequent updates, and you wouldn’t have to go off on a rant like your reply to Joe” if there was no posted update schedule. It’s basically retarded to say such a thing. Why in the world would you think it would be any different if there was no update schedule posted??? At many times (including currently) I’ve written comics with no posted schedule, and guess what the difference is in the amount of whining complaints like Joe’s? Zero difference. Pieces of shit like him complain no matter what. He probably doesn’t even know there is a posted schedule. Most don’t notice.

    “Sure, he was being extremely sarcastic but IMO you came across far worse than he did.”

    He wasn’t being sarcastic at all, and, to anyone with a brain, you’ve now come across worse than anyone here.

  42. Verm Says:

    Note: this is not to any particular person, just my standard statement on first amendment rights whenever I run across this discussion on a forum.

    “CONGRESS shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.”

    People think that the first amendment means they can say anything they want to without repercussions. And they can, but only so far as the federal government is concerned. Individuals and private entities can abridge, restrict or outright ban whatever speech they want. I especially love hearing the message board trolls rant about how their RIGHTS have been violated when they get banned, edited or deleted. You have no rights to access, let alone to unrestricted speech, on message boards unless the owner of said board gives you that PRIVILAGE, which they have the right to revoke at any time.

    It’s simple constitutional law people, not rocket science. So stop the whining, trolls and trollops. Add to the discussion in a calm and reasoned manner and you will be heard, if not agreed with.

    As far as scheduled updates go, I read over 50 different web comics and of those only a handful are strictly updated even on weekly basis, let alone multiple updates a week or daily updates. But, that said, I’m much more loyal to, and more likely to be a advocate of a comic or buy its merchandise if it commits to a regular schedule of updates.

    We all know that many webcomics are labors of love and can get fairly expensive, once they gain a following, to maintain. Sometimes real life interferes, sometimes an artist or writer may lose their muse ( say when a particularly nasty troll takes a dump all over their forum ). But while we, their fans, expect regular updates, they have no real obligation to us. Sure, we’d love it if they were so dedicated that they’d never miss an update, and many purveyors of webcomics strive to do just that, for the most part. But unless it’s their job and sole means of support, it’s unlikely that many writers or artists will continue to burden themselves with the task of providing free entertainment to us, their readers, for very long, once the task becomes no fun.

    So what can you do? Support it when you can, enjoy it while it lasts, and keep you criticism constructive. If you feel that’s too much effort for the money, there’s another webcomic about zombies around the corner, trust me on this, their like rabbits in mating season. So let’s try not to piss off the good ones, eh?

  43. Einar Says:

    Say Bobby. How is that movie deal coming along? Is it still being planed? I certainly hope so since I can’t seem to get enough of those flicks.

  44. Schmorgluck Says:

    Verm: “It’s simple constitutional law people, not rocket science”
    While I agree with the spirit and the thesis of your post, that part made me smirk: like constitutional law was a simple matter! OK, I know you meant that particular point of constitutional law, but I can’t help finding the phrase “simple constitutional law” very funny.

    Now about the argument at hand. Well, as a pretty disorganised guy who considers starting his own webcomic, I know the main issue I’ll have if I ever go for it will be schedule. I have to solve several issues before even considering starting, but that one haunts me, and I’m putting much thought into finding a solution, to no avail for now.

    As for you Bobby, your webcomic (well, this webcomic of yours, among others), and its schedule, all I can say is, since I like it, I pretty logically would like it to be updated more often – but I feel in no way entitled to require it. At the very most, I think I can allow myself to politely request for it. So here I go.

    Could you please, Bobby, try to update Last Blood more often? No biggie if you can’t, but I’ll have you know that it would make me happier if you managed to, because I love your work.

  45. Bobby Crosby Says:

    Thanks, buddy. I’ll attempt to try harder.

  46. Altair Says:

    YesYesYesYesYesYesYesYesYesYesYesYesYesYesYes!!! I came here today totally on accident, and now there’s an UPDATE to reward me! ThankyouThankyouThankyouThankyouThankyouThankyouThankyouThankyou! I’m so happy.

    This is brilliant. I got the shivers thinking of all those zombies advancing…
    It reminds me of the scene from ‘Serenity’… Mal and co. fly through the ion cloud towards the Alliance fleet…the Alliance is feeling smug and etc. … then a shitload of Reaver ships fly in behind them.

    Poor Mac and Grady. I hope they don’t die, and that that vampire under the tree wakes up right about…now…and starts shooting some zombie ass! :)

    I’m so happy… :)

  47. Nuin Says:

    “Poor Mac and Grady. I hope they don’t die”
    Mac die is this even possible…. Mac let Grady get so much as a scratch…is this… can you really…I ….. you…..BLASPHEMY. Where is Pander, people are beginning to doubt Mac’s awesomeness.

  48. Nuin Says:

    Oh and I haven’t mentioned lately how much i love this comic. So…. I Love this comic so freaking much. I love the black and white, I love it in color, I love the how the long waits make the updates seem extra special, I love the fans, I love when Bobby tears whining pansies a new one, and I love and missing Rage.

  49. Caity Says:

    Nuin: “Mac die is this even possible…. Mac let Grady get so much as a scratch…is this… can you really…I ….. you…..BLASPHEMY. Where is Pander, people are beginning to doubt Mac’s awesomeness.”

    ::patpat:: There, there, Nuin, it’s okay. As High Priestess, I can assure you that that puzzling statement is unfounded, as Mac’s awesomeness is infallible. There is nothing to worry about. As for people doubting Mac’s awesomeness, I don’t even see how this is mentally possible, as the mind would explode just trying to establish a way that Mac lacks in awesome. Because he doesn’t.

  50. Iamnowaddicted Says:

    I just read the entire thing in one setting. Can’t wait ’til the next update.

  51. Gruhl Says:

    Concerning the name of the phobia…
    I’m no expert, but necroproperophobia – fear of fastmoving dead things, sounds about right for me.

  52. Kaylee Says:

    Ya know Bobby, I’ve read all your comics, I’ve even bought the physical copies of Marry Me and Last Blood 1.
    But though we as your fans and loyal readers have no rights to updates, nor guarantees, I can almost bet you money that you lose readers all the time, simply because you constantly overreact about trivial things. On the Dreamless boards, because of some people who sincerely love your comic and Miss Ellerton’s magnificent art work. People, who at least in that case, meant you no ill will, only wanted to remark on something they thought was odd.
    And you over reacted, throwing around obscenities as you have here, today and on many more occasions.

    And today in the case of FXWizard, and to a lesser extent Joe, you reacted in a way that tells anyone who reads your replies that you are not mature enough to just let go the idiot comments like ‘Joe’s.
    And FXWizard was simply telling you that you’re NOT coming across as professional at all, nor as a person that many would continue to do business with.

    The fact of the matter is that you should be prepared to keep up with your own schedule, have pages written in advance every time, just in case of emergency, writers block, ect.
    Writing a webcomic is not easy, it’s something that requires dedication to it, to your art, (in your case writing, which is an art) dedication to the fans and even the ability to put up with the idiots, as the people on this comment section do for you.

    It says very little of you to make a commitment to not just the fans, but the artist’s whose talents you are utilizing to give them a chance to get the respect for this that they ALSO deserve.
    Your artists are also losing their credibility due to your poor work ethic and you’re chasing away potential readers and purchasers of your work by being rude, childish, profane, and not just ignoring the bad comments.

    Because you should take it as a compliment that of the 51 comments at the time of my posting 1 was rude and stupid. ONE single post amongst 51 that does not hail your work and Owen’s as the amazing work of art that it is.

    But feel free to open up and tear apart my post because someone criticized (me and FXWizard) criticized your attitude, and not your work.

  53. Bobby Crosby Says:

    You’re just oversensitive little babies, that’s all. I hate this time period where everyone gets so hurt and shocked by the slightest thing that doesn’t affect them in any way. Basically nothing that Kaylee said made any sense, especially this odd line:

    “And FXWizard was simply telling you that you’re NOT coming across as professional at all, nor as a person that many would continue to do business with.”

    Oh, he was SIMPLY telling me that I’m not at all professional and that he doesn’t think people should do business with me? #1 — How the fuck is that “simply”? #2 — You obviously didn’t read his post. What he was simply telling me was to REMOVE THE POSTED SCHEDULE BECAUSE HE SAYS THAT WOULD ELIMINATE ALL THE COMPLAINTS, which is 100% retarded/false, but he stated it as a fact.

    “The fact of the matter is that you should be prepared to keep up with your own schedule, have pages written in advance every time, just in case of emergency, writers block, ect.”

    Why??? What the fuck does it matter? As you refer to it, it’s a WEBCOMIC. Who the fuck cares???

    “Writing a webcomic is not easy, it’s something that requires dedication to it, to your art, (in your case writing, which is an art) dedication to the fans and even the ability to put up with the idiots”

    LOL, what. Writing a webcomic is almost certainly the easiest thing in the history of the world and it requires almost nothing.

    “It says very little of you to make a commitment to not just the fans, but the artist’s whose talents you are utilizing to give them a chance to get the respect for this that they ALSO deserve. Your artists are also losing their credibility due to your poor work ethic . . .”

    No clue what you’re talking about. How are they losing credibility?

    “you’re chasing away potential readers and purchasers of your work by being rude, childish, profane, and not just ignoring the bad comments.”

    An extremely small percentage of the readers even know there are comments down here — less than 5% actually read any of them — and lots of people love my open and honest attitude in the comments, as you could see, if you actually comprehended any of them.

    “People, who at least in that case, meant you no ill will, only wanted to remark on something they thought was odd.”

    You’re extremely bad at reading minds and comprehending words. You have no clue what you’re talking about if you think I was mean to anyone who only wanted to remark on something they thought was odd.

    “you’re chasing away potential readers and purchasers of your work”
    “I’ve even bought the physical copies of Marry Me and Last Blood 1.”

    I’m 99% sure you bought the copies AFTER seeing me act like this in the comments, since I’ve been doing it nonstop from the very beginning and you say you’ve read all my comics, and you speak as if EVERYONE reads all the comments, saying how I’ve lost so many readers and so many sales, so you basically MUST have seen me acting like this in the comments before buying the books — so there goes your whole argument.

  54. ShavenLunatic Says:

    YAY! And the paintmash is back.. how i’ve missed it :)

  55. ShavenLunatic Says:

    oh.. and for all the bitchers about the sporadic updates.. just sign up for the fucking RSS feed and stop moaning

  56. Einar Says:

    Again, bumping my question. Any news about the film? I tried looking up additional info and all I found was that it was scheduled for 2010. Is this info correct?

  57. Bobby Crosby Says:

    “Any news about the film?”

    If there was, you’d know it.

  58. Charles81 Says:

    I don’t know why but the guy in the Charlie Brown style shirt in the back corner looks like he’s ment to be someone famous we should recognize.

    @Bobby: GOD DAMN MATE! You really know how to dish up a can of whoop-ass with awsomesauce added on top. That first one on joe dealt out some epic level Pwnage. I swear you just about based Addison “Fucking” Payne on yourself (God I loved that line).

    Seriously people. My Granny heads a hospital for those with severe mental disabilities. If anyone should get offended by Bobby dealing out insults like “retarded” it should be me. But here I still am, just taking notes of the people likely to require a visit to my Granny’s hospital *lol*

    Bobby – “Writing a webcomic is almost certainly the easiest thing in the history of the world and it requires almost nothing.”

    What? I wrote an 8 page one and it took me and a co-writer 3-4 weeks! Either you’re not giving yourself due credit for the work you put in, or you’re just that fucking good *lol*. Probably the 2nd considering you’re writing three of the bloody things.

    P.S. discovered your update thanks to a keenspot advertisement of it.

  59. Johnny_Deg Says:

    I wonder if this commenting system allows Page-Fucking.
    (Awesome webcomic btw, just finished reading the entire archive.)

    Did that work?

  60. Johnny_Deg Says:

    Also, I must say it gave me a laugh at how ironic you are, Bobby.

    “You’re just oversensitive little babies, that’s all. I hate this time period where everyone gets so hurt and shocked by the slightest thing that doesn’t affect them in any way.”

    Over-Sensitive little babies?
    Coming from the guy who seemingly gets insulted by random internet goers and decideds to argue back, worthlessly?

    Do you think that giving them an answer, intelligent, angrily or otherwise will change anything? If yes, then what. What is the point?
    If there is no point, then why bother with it?

    Oh snap.

  62. Bill M. Says:

    ZERG RUSH!

    Just kidding. Man, of all the ways to follow up Mac’s awesome shot, that is not the way I was thinking. The only question I have is are they running towards Mac or away from Rage? Last we saw him, he was chasing a group of running zombies…

  63. Atan Says:

    finally new page ^^
    though i like the pages with less colors a bit better but these are still awesome ^^

  64. Jim Que Says:

    Don’t let Mac/Grady die! :’(

    I’ll cry. Lots. (Just finished the archives nice story you got here.)

  65. Amy Says:

    As usual, love the update and I eagerly look forward to the next one.

    I just picked up and read thru this whole series thus far today and I have to say your work is amazing ! Keep it up and keep it at your pace !

    Glowing eyes, running . . . Schamaeic? Or not, I recall that the zombies run when they smell blood, so these could just be past their 32 day adjustment period. Oh well, guess I’ll find out when I find out.

    Cool update though, I like the closeup of the golf ball and the foot coming down, hope that makes the film. I can hear the musical score hit a dramatic staccato note when the foot comes down.

  70. Bobby Crosby Says:

    ” ‘You’re just oversensitive little babies, that’s all. I hate this time period where everyone gets so hurt and shocked by the slightest thing that doesn’t affect them in any way.’

    Over-Sensitive little babies?
    Coming from the guy who seemingly gets insulted by random internet goers and decideds to argue back, worthlessly?”

    I’ve never been insulted by anything in my life. Arguing with people doesn’t mean you’re sensitive or overreacting about something. When I see people state retarded things as facts on ANY SUBJECT, I respond in the same way, as these comments have shown. It has nothing to do with the fact that people are talking about me or the comics I write. It has to do with speaking my mind at all times and hating liars. There’s a big difference between someone coming in from nowhere, not involved in any way, and saying “Oh my god you’re so unprofessional and I’m going to stop reading this comic now because you’re using bad words and acting so rude!” and what I do, which is actually having a coherent disagreement about something real, not acting offended for no reason.

    “Do you think that giving them an answer, intelligent, angrily or otherwise will change anything? If yes, then what. What is the point?
    If there is no point, then why bother with it?”

    I don’t care in any way if it changes anything — I’m just giving my opinion, which usually also involves answering questions/concerns that people have, even the retarded people like you, so it makes no sense to tell me that I shouldn’t respond in any way. Basically you’re telling me that I should be an asshole who doesn’t answer people’s questions.

  72. Laryn Says:

    Hey Bobby,
    I just found this comic and sat through and read all of the archives in one go. As well as just joining the 5% since this was the only page of comments I read. Just wanted to let you know I’ve loved the comic so far and I’m hoping the movie deal goes the way you want. I can’t wait to give you too damn much money to sit in a theater and watch this. And don’t mind the trolls, there’s always someone that can’t seem to help but try and start a fight on the internet. The net seems to bring out the worst in some people.

  73. Supdawggterher Says:

    I do have to say, Bobby, you seem to have a pretty short temper with anyone who remotely criticizes. Now, while that one whiny bitch got what was coming to him, in general, being a little more mellow now will probably get people to be nicer to you later.

  74. Jimbo Says:

    so has this comic just been on hold for a while or what I just read the whole thing tonite and i noticed this is the first update in 2 months, I hope it updates more often. It will just be torture if I have 2 months between updates cuz chances are i will check this only a daily basis just praying that it updated.

  75. CC_the_Wolf Says:

    Hey Bobby, love the comic, first off. Am waiting patiently for the film. I gotta say though that I scroll the comments just hoping you’ll open a can of whoop ass on some idiot and you rarely disappoint. So, Thanks Bobby. :)

  76. Bobby Crosby Says:

    “you seem to have a pretty short temper with anyone who remotely criticizes.”

    It had nothing to do with “criticism.” It has to do with anyone saying anything that I disagree with on any subject. If someone said “The writing in ‘Last Blood’ sucks because the main characters are boring and the dialogue is shit,” my response would be (and has been) “I completely agree, as I’ve said so many times.”

  77. Lynn Says:

    nice update!
    looking forward to more :)

  79. KingFrozen Says:

    Ok, good work, actually updating. Looks good, like a cliffhanger, i like it.

    Also, not to be on anyones side (even if they do read this) but…

    Bobby, you do say an update each week, so you should try to but at the same time…
    Everyone else, you haven’t paid for this so regardless, be it consistent updates or none at all, you are getting what you paid for.

    You are doing a great job Bobby, but people expect you to live up their expectations, especially when you set the standard. Regardless, I do like all your comics.

    Am I the only one who thinks you are a sonabitch? Damn I would love to kick your ass………

    By the way, love Last Blood and I hope and pray to God they put your ass on Entertainment tonight once the movie comes out. I can’t wait to see you cuss out Mary Hart or bitch slap some movie critic or take a shit on some fan who thought the popcorn sucked.

  84. Vicky Says:

    bleh…

    Listen, guys, is it really that hard to do what I do with this comic (which I gotta say is THE BEST!!!!)?

    I go every few days, sometimes once a week, basically, when I start thinking “hey, its been a while, has Bobby updated it?” and go into it. If I don’t see the update, ah hell, okay. If I see it, jackpot. I hope nobody’s spent the last month refreshing the page every hour…

    Your reproductive organs are NOT going to fall off if he updates late. ;) .So, please stop behaving with a stick up their ass, berating Bobby and feeling all butt hurt. Can we all, just… enjoy the comic? I mean, I’d really love it too if Bobby could update more frequently, and Bobby, please do if its possible, but guys, please, GROW UP PEOPLE.

    Anyways: Bobby, I really really love the comic. This isn’t the first time I post, but I generally just lurk. Last Blood 1 is one of the best web comics I’ve met if not the best. Please, PLEASE do keep up the good work and keep updating it and working on it.

    Ok, now I have to run from a zombie stampede. ;)

  87. bryan cain aka kanevivi Says:

    hey bobby and rest of the guys and well if any women are involved in last blood i must say sincei found it i was hooked. and sorry you have to put up with their shit ya’ll. i must say it is a twist and fresh look on the zombie idea to say the least and has proven quite the enjoyable read. as for update meh i have some comics i read that take months on end to update but they always deliver and ya’ll haven’t let down. you never comprimise your work and you prove to be true to your story. though they take time i always say quality over quantity. also yes i mispelled and if ya’ll get prissy over that well meh ya’ll have our fun i got a nap to get to and will be happy reading the other works when i wake my ass up. anyways bobby you and the crew take care and hope ya’ll are haveing rocking times. oh and before i forget you got a movie deal going that is sweet i bet it could be a blockbuster and fav of all times and hope it goes man i’d love to see it on the big screen.

  88. Mike Avery Says:

    Beautiful, a new fuckin post! My day has officially been made, bitches. Ahem. Responding to comments on previous page: 1) Weapons and attractive high preistesses? Sign me up. 2) The original vampire stories are nothing like the Western concept- boneless, gelatinous monsters that could slime their way through a keyhole- not turn into mist or shrink or something equally pretty- and that looked like walking corpses, not slightly pale supermodels. The stories, which were always posited as true, involved rape (is it classified as necrophilia for the walking dead?), murder, torture, cannabalism, betrayal, mutilation, vigilante justice, sordid affairs, and so on. This shit at seven or eight years old. Vampires fucking scare me, man.
    3) Yeah, it was a lot of fun. Well, the walk itself wasn’t that great- it was cold, and we just walked and moaned and laughed. But we got high and applied each other’s shambling dead makeup and laughed our asses off. It was fantastic.
    Responding to this page: Dude, I thought the zombies were running cause Sullivan was controlling them. If he is, why are they running at Mac and Grady? If not, what’s making the necrotic fuckers run? I’m borderline homicidal in anticipation. Awesome fuckin post

  89. charles81 Says:

    @Mike: Those zombies are decendents of the vampire bloodline with a very high sense of smell. But it takes about 30 days for those traits to kick into a new vampire or zombie. As a result, they’re only just kicking in now and every zombie who could smell humans a mile away can suddenly smell them a few hundred or thousand miles away. So they’re all running in to get their tucker. Granted, these might actually be sullivans, returning to defend them, but since they don’t have weapons, it’s doubtful.

  90. Caity Says:

    So, I’ve come to the conclusion that I shouldn’t look at this comic before I go to bed. Last night I dreamed that I was at work (clothing store) and all of a sudden I was fending off zombies from behind the register using plastic bags and broken plastic hangers–pretty much going for the eyes with the latter I think. The weirdest thing was, I think at one point there was a zombie sheep…but it was very brief and I have no idea what that was about. After thinking about this dream for a while, though, I decided that while using the hangers was pretty creative (though more close quarters than I would like), I should have gone for one of the wall hooks to use as a pole weapon. Yeeah…strange dreams strike again.

    Mike Avery: “1) Weapons and attractive high preistesses? Sign me up.”
    Welcome to the fold! heh

    “2) The original vampire stories are nothing like the Western concept- boneless, gelatinous monsters that could slime their way through a keyhole- “etc…
    Wow…yeah, glad I didn’t hear that at eight, though I *am* glad I’m hearing it now, as it is terrifying yet interesting. For some reason, it reminds me of a movie I saw based around the movie Nosferatu (though by the sounds of it, that one is a bit toned down as well, even if Count Orlok isn’t some modelesque heartthrob ::snickers:: I couldn’t keep a straight face typing that, somehow the thought of that character and the word ‘heartthrob’ in the same sentence is highly amusing) called “Shadow of the Vampire,” which is basically kind of like a fictional documentary with the guy playing Count Orlok being an actual vampire. It’s a really good movie.

    “3) Yeah, it was a lot of fun. Well, the walk itself wasn’t that great- it was cold, and we just walked and moaned and laughed.”
    SInce I’m pretty accustomed to the cold, I still have to say I’m jealous hehe, it *sounds* fantastic.

  91. Zippy Says:

    AUGH! It’s an update without being an update! This comic is driving me mad! (not to say that I don’t love the page, the art and color is excellent, the story is just staying on this one spot and it’s driving me up a wall! >o<)

  92. Sim^moN Says:

    I always loved the way that some pages have a way of ending with malicious comments and verbal bashing from some readers vs Mr Crosby (and vice versa).
    I always lol’d at some questions beeing asked although they were answered like a hundred times before =)

    On the other hand, yays for the update (just know that I keep track of LB and your other comics)… Do more when you’ll be able to (I wanna see where it leads).
    I was wondering how cute would the zombies looked if an alternative version of LB was drawn by Sarah Ellerton, the ‘Dreamless’ artist. =D

    Wow I think you may now rival Gone With The Blastwave for the title of slowest updating comic on the web. Not that there is a damn thing wrong with that! It is every bit as entertaining to check this page every now and again to see what idiot has managed to attract your ire lately and to read your responses of pure vitriolic awesomeness. Thanks for the update and keep em coming when you have the time Bobby.

  95. Altair Says:

    “I just read the entire thing in one setting. Can’t wait ’til the next update.”
    Very impressive. :)

    I’ve said it once, and I’ll say it again: I’d rather have just 1 new page of Last Blood a year than no Last Blood at all. (Not that that’s ever happened.) Whether it’s one post every twelve months, one post every six months, or one post every seven days, it really doesn’t matter because IT’S FREE EPIC ENTERTAINMENT!

    And if it really bothers people so much and they have nothing else to fill the empty hours of their life, then there’s lots of other webcomics that you could be reading in between updates.

  96. Alex_h Says:

    First thing to Bobby Crosby dont let a few mindless idiots get to you, you are very talented and its great when you show it to the world it is always nice to see a new page and i think why everyone gets upset is they want to see more of this talent more of the time keep up the great work.

    Now to Owen Gieni love your art work done in this i have always been a fan of the art work you have done for this i look forward to seeing more of it.

  97. Matt_T Says:

    I don’t like the look of those zombies o_O
    Also, thanks for the update Bobby. Great work as usual :) .
    I always check back every few weeks or so for updates, as you said “Once you see for the first time that the schedule isn’t met, then you know “Hey, it’s not met all the time, darn, oh well, now I know.” “. When there’s an update I’m never disappointed. I really admire your work, you are hugely talented.

  100. Jonas Says:

    Sweet, new update. Check the site almost every day, if there is no new page I just reread the last one and sometimes a few pages back to refresh my memory on whats going on with the story, or start reading from the begining again, I think your work is AWESOME, keep it up.

  101. Mike Avery Says:

    Caity: First off, I haven’t seen Shadow of the Vampire- odd, as I’m a pretty dedicated John Malkovitch fan. I have seen Nosferatu, though, and I completely agree- I can really see Max Schreck in full makeup doing underwear-modelling shoots and shit. Lol. Secondly, what kind of fringe benefits can I look forward to in your cult? I should tell you, I’m not a fan of kool-aid, regardless of the additives. Wow, a Jonestown joke. A new low, I think. Third, are you Canadian? If your a Yank, or even from Southern Canada, believe me, you don’t know cold. I think it was something like twenty below (Celsius) the day of the Vancouver Walk; compared to where I’m originally from, Yellowknife, that’s balmy. Sorry, Canadian thing. We’re proud of how badly we freeze out asses off.

  102. Nothing Says:

    I only just stumbled across your comic today. I don’t do RSS feeds, so I’m gonna bookmark it. So far I’m enjoying it, though zombie comics are definitely not my usual fare.

    I don’t really understand the whiners–but then again, I read a lot of online comics, and I check certain ones more often than others, based on a general formula of how frequently the artist updates and how interesting the comic is. If waiting is so difficult, can’t they just find something that does update more often? Complaining that a comic you like doesn’t update for free online is silly. And yes, I understand why the creators would get crabby with it.

    To the writer: Don’t let the whiners get to you, and don’t let them turn you into a whiner. It’s your decision whether or not you want to continue this story. I agree with you–there are some characterization and plot issues. You’ve got an interesting twist, but some of your characters are a bit flat/archetypical. That’s okay though–it is a zombie story. It’s kind of expected to have a *few* cliches.. You deviate from the usual just enough to keep it actually interesting. For instance, it’s good to see that in the end there aren’t just two people left who conveniently form a couple–so far, anyway. Also, getting rid of the infected guy before he turned was a good twist.

    One of my few points of specific critique is that it seemed like an easy out for there to be a cure for vampirism–but then again, the vampire/human romance thing shouldn’t ideally work out the way it usually does in books and films. Seriously, it’d be like dating a pizza–with the same problems involved. Not only is the pizza food, but if you don’t eat it, it’s gonna go bad sooner or later. Despite my interest in seeing some nasty conflict result for once, it’s better for him to become human than for her to become a vampire like it always seems to happen, anyway! (Anyway, one more human is a little better for the human race–It still may not be enough to save them due to lack of genetic variation, but let’s ignore that logistic, shall we?)

    In other news: Running zombies are terrifying. The worst thing about it is, I don’t think zombies could get tired; I mean, aren’t their muscles decayed already? Technically speaking they shouldn’t even be able to run. Scary scary stuff.

  103. Caity Says:

    Mike Avery: “and I completely agree- I can really see Max Schreck in full makeup doing underwear-modelling shoots and shit.”
    there is not an onomatopoeia that can describe the sound I probably made trying not to laugh out loud and make the person I was watching TV with think I’m crazier than they already do. haha, oh my gosh.

    “Secondly, what kind of fringe benefits can I look forward to in your cult?”
    Well, a select few will have weapons privileges…I think I probably have a head of security opening and they would have access. It’s a subsidiary of the Church of Pander, and if you’ve been reading these post pages long, you’d have an idea of what happens there. Likely something along the same lines, but we’re a new branch, so I would be open to suggestions.

    “Wow, a Jonestown joke. A new low, I think.”
    Hehe, no worries, I’ve heard plenty worse…probably said plenty worse as well…or implied. That is if the term ‘horrible joke’ can be applied to the implications made while playing Apples to Apples. Other than that, if I make a bad joke I tend to get funny looks. I’m perceived as the ‘nice, innocent one’ in my circle of friends. I honestly don’t know why, I think my friends confuse lack of cursing for naivete.

    “Third, are you Canadian? If your a Yank, or even from Southern Canada, believe me, you don’t know cold.”
    Okay, so you have me beat. I live colleged in northern VT for four years and am a Mass native, and yes, I agree that it probably didn’t reach those kind of lows. I was on top of a very large hill, so we got lots of wind…so though on our worst winter days we certainly reached the Vancouver walk temperature and worse with wind chill, it wasn’t typical. I’m fairly proud of my tolerance too, though, so I can relate.

    (All people who just looked the quote up……..shame on you)

    Why do people keep trying to force science and logic on this comic. To quote a writer of another web comic I like…….ahem…….”Your logic has no Fucking place in this world” Elegant in its simplicity, no?

    By the way Caity, Jonas is obviously a dedicated and loyal fan. These traits are good in a minion i am thinking. You should snatch him up or i could do the snatching for you. I will look into his financial background and ability to provide the tributes of weapons first of course.

  113. Mike Avery Says:

    1) An opening in cult security, with full weapons privileges!? That is officially my new dream job- where do I apply? 2) Yeah, Max Schrek has that effervescent, ‘I’m gonna kill you and eat your soul’ kinda sex appeal. Only him and Christopher Walken can pull that off. 3) You ever get a chance to come to Canada, DON’T. The winters are insane up here. I had a friend get wasted and pass out outdoors and freeze to death a few months ago. Human beings are not designed to live up here. Which is why I’m taking the summer off to go to Italy, which is why I probably won’t be posting here much, if at all, in the next couple months. Nice talking to you, peace.

  114. Jessica Says:

    Okay, so I’ve decided I’m not even going to try and catch up, because the thought of all of that scrolling back and forth is beyond daunting. Also, from all the things I flagged on first read through, my reply would be long enough that people actually would have a right to complain.

    I will say, however, that I am delighted Nuin has joined in the recruitment for the Church of Pander, especially Caity’s branch, even if she does seem to threaten my job. Nuin, I figure between the two of us, we can expand membership enough that they’ll need more than on PR rep/recruiter. And I’m still Chief Exculpatator, whatever the heck that means, right?

    Now, (cue music) Oh where, oh where has our Jon Pander gone…?

    Also, Caity, I had to laugh when I read that your friends think you’re the innocent one in the group. Have you told them you’re a High Priestess in a church whose main activities are the worship of an incredibly violent killer of zombies, and shower orgies? (And Shadow of the Vampire is definitely a fun movie.)

    Hey Mike! Western Canadian high five? When on earth was it EVER 20 below in Vancouver? I moved to Victoria a few years ago, and they gripe when it even approaches zero.

    And, since it seems to be a continuing concern on this page of comment posts, I’m gonna be an idiot and go against my better judgement and weigh in to say that you do come across as aggressive rather than assertive, Bobby. (Of course, that could just be because I’m Canadian, and I’ve heard our speech patterns tend to be about five degrees less assertive than American speech patterns. But given that I watch entirely too much American television, I doubt that that’s the case.)

    Hey! yo! an update! looky here!
    Thanks Bobby!
    and I was only 13 days late to mis it >.>
    Can’t wait to see the clusterfuck that the next pages’ll bring.

    I see the comments are as active as ever.
    I don’t know why you people keep complaining. It’s like a delicious gift.
    I mean sure it doens’t update often, but it updates, and it’s GOOD, and it looks good. It’s genuinely entertaining.
    I mean really, look at all the half-assed, shit drawn comics that update DAILY (lords help us), trying to be LOLRANDOM or SUPER AKSHUN that are just sitting on te internet, cloggin’ the tubes.

    Bobby? Thanks for giving us something worth reading

  117. Jessica Says:

    Mike Avery: “1) An opening in cult security, with full weapons privileges!? That is officially my new dream job- where do I apply?”

    You apply to Caity, with me acting as mediator. Jon Pander will also get a say, of course, if he posts again. Once Caity says the word, I start drafting the contract.

    “You ever get a chance to come to Canada, DON’T. The winters are insane up here.”

    She can move to Victoria. It barely ever gets to be below freezing here. And UVic actually has an “In case of Zombe Apocalypse” survival plan posted on classroom walls.

    “Which is why I’m taking the summer off to go to Italy”

    Be prepared for pickpockets. Bigtime. In teams. And make sure you spend at least a few days in Venice.

  119. Goober Says:

    If the update schedule is something you keep to drive yourself, then by all means keep a shedule. But if you are going to be months late and wonder why people complain perhaps you should put it on a fridge calendar as opposed to the internet. I understand you have other things besides this comic, but when you post a date and miss it as a matter of course somebody is going to call you out. That is not a schedule, that’s a lie. And I can understand that you get tired of getting called out, but there’s a few easy answers:
    1) Actually update on saturdays. Not likely, I know, but an option none the less.
    2) Take down the dealy what’s causing the problem. Keep an informal schedule for yourself, and people can check back when they care.
    3) Change the dealy so it says something more acurate, like “Updated whenever it’s updated, shut your damn whine hole.”
    I disagree that I should let it slide because it’s free; It’s because it’s free that I care. To come find work of this caliber free to the public is a rare thing indeed, and I would hate to see this die due to disinterest on the part of the author.

    This post was written sincerely, and any sarcasm or spite you read is imagined, I assure you.

  120. Bobby Crosby Says:

    “I would hate to see this die due to disinterest on the part of the author.”

    Did you not read anything that I said? I made it very clear that total fucking morons who whine about the schedule are a significant reason for why there are so few updates, so then you choose to whine about the schedule in the new stupidest way yet. I think you’re intentionally trying to kill the comic. You contradicted yourself with everything you said.

    OMG! I just stumbled upon this comic a few hours ago, and I couldn’t stop reading!!! I totally fell in love with this comic and I cant wait to read more of it (sadly art can’t be rushed, but I will wait patiently and be looking so much forward to the next page is out) ^_^
    this is by far one of the best online comics I have ever read, kudos to the owner of this awesome comic! :D

  123. Mopps Says:

    You know, maybe if you dingbats would stop whinging and pissmoaning for attention in the comments about it not being updated to your exacting basement dwelling standards, Bobby would have more time to work on it.

  124. An Actual Fan Says:

    Maybe Goober thinks he can back you into a corner and update in order to spite him.
    It makes him more amusing

  125. Morg Says:

    I’ve noticed a distinct lack of something on all of these zombies. I see no visible bites/chunks ripped out, and no dried blood from said zombification injuries.

  126. Goober Says:

    Imagine my surprise when last few attempts at replies were unsuccessful, and not even submitted for moderation. I can only speculate as to why this is, and so will discuss it no further.

    In response to Mr. Crosby:

    “Did you not read anything that I said? I made it very clear that total fucking morons who whine about the schedule are a significant reason for why there are so few updates, so then you choose to whine about the schedule in the new stupidest way yet. I think you’re intentionally trying to kill the comic. You contradicted yourself with everything you said.”

    I had read everything you posted on this page prior to my previous post. You made it very clear that you have a total lack of respect for anyone who disagrees with you on the schedule, but also for anyone who disagrees with you about your total lack of respect for anyone who disagrees with you on the schedule. In fact, I might go so far as to say you’ve a complete contempt for anyone who disagrees with you on anything ever. I imagine I’m working my way up the short list at this point, being the only dissenting poster with the gall to reply to you.

    I tried to put my post together as an invitation to discuss the matter, not as a chance to whine. I thought I was fairly successful, but we seem to disagree. And I will admit that it’s a little stupid, but you and I would disagree on where the stupid is. You would likely find it in my choice to post at all, or at least my choice of subject, whereas I see it in expecting a civil response from you.

    You are in a far better position to kill this comic than I or most of your readership will ever be. And if you quit, for any reason outside of an act of god, I think it’s safe to say you’ve lost some degree of interest.

    I don’t see any contradictions in my previous post. It’s entirely possible that I was at some point unclear, and I’d be glad to answer any questions you have for me to resolve that.

    @Mopps:
    First: Mr. Crosby has no obligation to even read these posts, let alone reply. I’m glad he does, but he does it on his own.
    Second: He said above (June 11th) that it took him twenty minutes to write this page, and that laziness was a large contributing factor to the lack of updates. This suggests that the time is there, and he is ignoring it.
    Third: I live on the ground floor, thank you very much!

    @An Actual Fan:
    At this point I’d be glad to get a civil reply. An update would be a pleasant outcome though, and I would like to see what happens next. Mr Crosby is an excellent writer, and the art is pretty good too.

  127. Bobby Crosby Says:

    Jesus, you have no fucking brain.

    “I don’t see any contradictions in my previous post. ”

    Listen carefully:

    “perhaps you should put it on a fridge calendar as opposed to the internet.”

    How would that conceivably be motivating? Obviously the only way the posted schedule would be motivation is if it’s POSTED.

    “And I can understand that you get tired of getting called out, but there’s a few easy answers:
    1) Actually update on saturdays. Not likely, I know, but an option none the less.
    2) Take down the dealy what’s causing the problem. Keep an informal schedule for yourself, and people can check back when they care.
    3) Change the dealy so it says something more acurate, like ‘Updated whenever it’s updated, shut your damn whine hole.’ ”

    So you’re now a proven liar. This is proof that you didn’t read my posts, even though you just said “I had read everything you posted on this page prior to my previous post. ” You SOMEHOW missed this very long rant:

    “Your argument is 100% false when you say that readers ‘wouldn’t get their knickers in a twist over infrequent updates, and you wouldn’t have to go off on a rant like your reply to Joe’ if there was no posted update schedule. It’s basically retarded to say such a thing. Why in the world would you think it would be any different if there was no update schedule posted??? At many times (including currently) I’ve written comics with no posted schedule, and guess what the difference is in the amount of whining complaints like Joe’s? Zero difference. Pieces of shit like him complain no matter what. He probably doesn’t even know there is a posted schedule. Most don’t notice.”

    The “dealy what’s causing the problem” is that people want more comics, NO MATTER WHAT ANY FUCKING SCHEDULE SAYS. I have no posted schedule for “+EV” and I get tons of people whining in an angry manner wanting more comics. Similarly, during times when my comics were actually consistently meeting their posted schedule, people would whine about wanting more. Most of the people who whine seem to not even know there is a posted schedule (if there is one at the time for whatever comic they’re whining about). These aren’t the type of people who would actually notice such things anyway, you know. They have no brain, like you, as you’ve just proven yet again. They simply want more free shit and they think they’re obligated to it and that there’s no reason why they shouldn’t get it. They have no common sense.

    And again, to your #2 and #3 — THAT WOULD OBVIOUSLY REMOVE THE MOTIVATION OF THE POSTED SCHEDULE. And to anyone who says “It’s not doing much motivating,” you have no brains and you wouldn’t even comprehend the response to that.

    “In fact, I might go so far as to say you’ve a complete contempt for anyone who disagrees with you on anything ever.”

    This is because you can’t comprehend the English language. I have contempt for proven liars like you.

    “At this point I’d be glad to get a civil reply.”

    I despise people like you.

  128. CC_the_Wolf Says:

    You know I don’t think there was thing much whining over schedule even when it said “updated every minute” over at Marry Me. Which is kinda understandable, because as good as Marry Me is Last Blood is better.
    Also, is it werid that all the whining made me think “were the zombies always green? weren’t they yellowish early on?”

  129. random dude Says:

    Just heard about this comic from a post on io9 and thought I’d check it out. Awesome stuff, I’m not really into comics but this was a great waste of the last 40 minutes. Seriously, thanks – best little internet discovery I’ve made in ages.

  130. An actual Fan Says:

    @CC_The_Wolf

    Different artist doing the coloring, I believe.
    Or it has to do with how they can run on their own now.
    Me? I just keep seeing him stepping on te golf ball and the meaty bits coming off in the second panel and going “owowow”

  131. CC_the_Wolf Says:

    @actual fan
    re: “owowow” That too.
    And the comment was more about the fact that all the complaints made my mind wander. I figured it was mostly due to the cover art, which is from before it was a color comic. The original zombie is pictured yellowish. I suppose Kaezrer doing the coloring could be the reason, or something as simple as an artistic choice being made once the comic switched to color.

  132. Goober Says:

    What I intended to propose wit option two was that you keep a similar schedule for yourself, off the internet. In this manner you would have the motivation of a posted schedule for yourself and lose some of the whiners. I figure there’s two groups: Group one has read the schedule and wonders why there are no updates, group two are the greedy fools who wouldn’t be pleased regardless. It is impossible to remove all of the whiners, but this would remove some of them. Option three did ignore having a schedule to motivate you, and for that I apologize. I will try to do better in the future.

    I did not miss your rant; your experience and opinions are not facts. What I mean to say is that while they certainly exist there are other sites like this that have had different results. I believe that the situation I listed above is more likely than that which you posted, and that some of this could be easily cleared up by altering the schedule. Having an opinion contrary to one you posted is not lying, regardless of the experiences you have backing it.

    I like to think I’m pretty good at english. Keyboards tie me up a bit because it’s difficult to express emotions through the internet. And if I did lie it was certainly unintentional. I’ll do my best to check myself in the future, lest I wreck myself.

    “People like you” could mean any number of things, and could even refer to things you think I am that I actually am not. I’d like it if you were cleared when you insult me so I know how I earned it, but I understand if you choose not to be.

  133. Bobby Crosby Says:

    Everything you just said was bullshit nonsense that made no sense, and why did you ignore where I said multiple times how it obviously wouldn’t motivate me in any way if the schedule wasn’t posted for all to see??? Why would it help me with motivation if the schedule wasn’t posted publicly??? You don’t have any logic in your brain. No more posts from you.

  134. Masamune Says:

    Bobby, your a business man. Perhaps all the people who are complaining about the availablility of the free service would like to pay for a higher service level.

    Exiern: Dark Reflections seems to have a working model for that. *Shrug* I’d bet that most of the people complaining wouldn’t contribute a dime.

    Anyway, this is my least favorite among your works, and its still one of the better comics on the internet. I tip my hat you sir.

  135. An actual Fan Says:

    @cc the wolf

    ahhh
    gotcha
    Really, it would make the most sense for zombies to be bluish, since bodies go cold and cyanotic when dead

  136. CC_the_Wolf Says:

    @actual fan
    You’re right. Blue does make the most sense, but I think we’ve been trained by prior exposure to expect green or yellow. But it would be interesting if they went with a “lack of circulation” blue for the film.

  137. Anon Says:

    You know, I don’t know all the inner working of webcomicery(yes I know that isn’t a word), but perhaps there’d be more time to post semi-regularly(if not regularly) if there were less comics to be done.

    With a film deal for LB and the several other comics on the table, its quite a plate to eat. Smaller portions would make things presumably easier to manage. Granted, as I stated above, I do not know if this is possible or even feasible so try not to explode on me. I have never once whined about lack of posting here, and frankly I kind of like it. It gives me something to be hopefuly and surprised about once a monthish. I’m just trying to pop out an idea for those who can’t wait and bitch etc.

  138. Bobby Crosby Says:

    As I’ve said many times, lack of time isn’t an issue at all. I’ve got tons of time. Lack of motivation is the issue. I’m just lazy and hate comics and writing and no new LB comics can help with an LB movie deal, since the movie’s story was completed over a year and a half ago. I’m writing more of “Dreamless” because that can actually help with movie deals. More “Last Blood” basically just helps a little with ad money for this site, and for more iPhone issues in the future. LB is my least favorite of my comics. The more comics, the better, because I have more motivation to do new comics, and I’ll be starting up at least one more very soon, hopefully six or seven.

  139. Leora Says:

    Hahaha I love reading comments…not to hear the whiners or Bobby’s rebuttals but to laugh at “Bobby, don’t let them get to you! Don’t let the idiots bring you down or make you think you suck!”
    Maybe I’m wrong, (apologies,) but from everything I’ve seen Bobby say, ever, on any comic, I don’t think there’s any danger of that. Bobby seems to take care of himself pretty well.

    Thanks for getting me into zombies, by the way, Bobby.

  140. Leora Says:

    By the way, as you said that new LB comics don’t help with a movie deal. Does the possibility of a sequel have NO bearing on the desirability of making this movie? That’s a shame, if so. You’d think 2 would be better than 1. =[

  141. Bobby Crosby Says:

    ” ‘Bobby, don’t let them get to you! Don’t let the idiots bring you down or make you think you suck!’
    Maybe I’m wrong, (apologies,) but from everything I’ve seen Bobby say, ever, on any comic, I don’t think there’s any danger of that.”

    I’ve always hated myself, so yeah, nothing any morons here say can make me do that — too late.

    “Thanks for getting me into zombies, by the way, Bobby.”

    I hate zombies.

    “Does the possibility of a sequel have NO bearing on the desirability of making this movie?”

    What’s your point? Of course it has a bearing on the desirability of making the movie — that has nothing to do with making more comics, though.

  143. Frosty Says:

    I’ve enjoyed the comments section almost as much as the comic. Regardless of whether or not you’re all enjoying posting on this thread, the material is completely hilarious! I only really read Bobby’s comments and the comments pertaining to his responses, but I’m pretty sure it’s clear that arguing with a writer is difficult. Good times!

  144. Harry Says:

    Bobby, if you hate this comic so much you should just end it in the next update. Just have all those running zombies chewing on the survivors in the next post and then some cheesy concluding line such as “And thus the reality of a zombie apocalypse is that there can be no happy endings”. It’d certainly make me laugh at least and no one would see it coming. Plus it would put an end to this eternal, increasingly tedious, battle between author and audience

  145. An Actual Fan Says:

    @CC the wolf

    Although, at the same time, yellowish and greenish can make sense, cuz skin that gets old and dried out tends to take a yellowish tone, and green could be from mold or various fungi that end up growing on/under the skin

    @darthclaire
    That would be AMAZING

  146. Jabberwookie Says:

    Just wanted to say that I love this comic! I’m bummed that you’re losing interest in it, since it’s one of my favorites, but I’m glad that it’s made it this far and I’ve enjoyed every page. Thanks for doing it.

    As for people who are demanding updates, chill out guys. It’s a free comic, just enjoy what you get instead of pitching hissy fits and trying to make the writers work on something that they’re in no way obligated to do for you. It’s not going to accomplish anything, except for maybe irritating them into not bothering to update at all. And it kinda makes the rest of us want to shank you.

  147. Nuin Says:

    “And it kinda makes the rest of us want to shank you”
    i agree with you only im a bit old fashion i would like to see them all chained to Mount Caucasus.

    Jessica: “I will say, however, that I am delighted Nuin has joined in the recruitment for the Church of Pander, especially Caity’s branch, even if she does seem to threaten my job.”
    Aww, no worries, Jessica, your position is safe.

    “Now, (cue music) Oh where, oh where has our Jon Pander gone…?”
    I know! I think he’s punishing us for not posting more the last update.

    “Also, Caity, I had to laugh when I read that your friends think you’re the innocent one in the group. Have you told them you’re a High Priestess in a church whose main activities are the worship of an incredibly violent killer of zombies, and shower orgies? (And Shadow of the Vampire is definitely a fun movie.)”
    Hehe, not yet, I figured I’d ease them into the idea. And I love that you know Shadow of the Vampire ^.^

    “She can move to Victoria. It barely ever gets to be below freezing here. And UVic actually has an “In case of Zombe Apocalypse” survival plan posted on classroom walls.”
    Hah! That’s awesome, every public place should have one.

    “Be prepared for pickpockets. Bigtime. In teams. And make sure you spend at least a few days in Venice.”
    Oh definitely, I can’t remember if our group had any incidents, but I only kept a little of my money in my pocket…or purse, can’t remember that either. The rest of it I kept in my shoe in a plastic bag. I figured if they could get to that without me noticing, I would have to applaud them.

    Mike Avery: “1) An opening in cult security, with full weapons privileges!? That is officially my new dream job- where do I apply? ”
    Right here, although by the sounds of it, I’d say you’re in.

    “2) Yeah, Max Schrek has that effervescent, ‘I’m gonna kill you and eat your soul’ kinda sex appeal. Only him and Christopher Walken can pull that off.”
    Hah, Christopher Walken is awesome.

    “3) You ever get a chance to come to Canada, DON’T. The winters are insane up here. I had a friend get wasted and pass out outdoors and freeze to death a few months ago. Human beings are not designed to live up here. Which is why I’m taking the summer off to go to Italy, which is why I probably won’t be posting here much, if at all, in the next couple months. Nice talking to you, peace.”
    Shame to hear you’re going–probably already gone by the sounds of it. Although not sorry for you, definitely, because I am completely jealous right now. I love Italy, got to go in college, but it was a very fast paced visit. I’d love to go back one day and be able to take my time. Have fun!

    Nuin: “i agree with you only im a bit old fashion i would like to see them all chained to Mount Caucasus.”

    and everyone deserves to feel pretty so don’t let anyone tell you different.

    “There’s a whole branch of a cult here that likes short shorts… ”
    there is only room for one cult ’round here.

    “or at least *girls* in short shorts.”
    this new cult is obviously novices pander likes his girls naked and in tequila showers.

    ” But round these parts”
    hahahah haha haha ha ha ha hahaha ha ha god i hope your from Texas cause i imagined that said with a Texan drawl and it was great.

    “Caity is the one to talk to about that.”
    Caity know everything its a requirement of being a high priestess. Of course she could just make it all up as she goes and we couldn’t question her cause well she’s the high priestess.

    By the by i miss panders wit around here

  156. CC Says:

    @Nuin
    Only cult I meant hun.
    But short shorts add mystery for the few seconds before the naked part.
    I’m a member. I was there for the tequila showers and wet shirt contests… the jello wrestling… right up till some folks got a little too… enthusiastic.
    I said it with a Texas drawl if that helps. I am Florida born and bred though so it was a bad Texas drawl.
    I was bowing to Caity’s greater knowledge and influence, I promise.
    Funny, I miss Pander too.

  160. Sigmoid Says:

    “Bobby Crosby Says…”

    Ah, man, don’t listen to the shitholes who flame you for the unfrequent updates. Some of the comments were so disrespectful and rude that they would piss even Buddha off.

    Still, it would be really sad to see this comic die now. :)
    Sure I also feel that somehow after the Schaemiac was defeated, the comic has lost much of its focus… You might or might not know fully where you intend to go with it – we readers certainly don’t. When I read the first page of “book 2″ with Sophia, I thought this story was set, like, 10 years after the zombie plague or something.

    So I wonder if you intend to actually pick the thread up in a later point, maybe as a proper, printed book instead of a webcomic.

  161. Sigmoid Says:

    …if not, you might do well to place a “The End” page after the interlude with Sophia, and archive these few pages created since as a “cut scene”. :D

  162. Termonator Says:

  163. IrishWren Says:

    Hey wow thanks for the update! and just so you know, the waiting isn’t an issue for me, either (Although I doubt you need to hear that from yet ANOTHER fan.) Just FYI I have been waiting over THREE YEARS for a comic to update, still nothing, but ho-hum, here I am, Still Waiting. Cause Comics rock. And I wish I was talented too.

  164. Path0s Says:

    Now… I’d love to respond to everything said but the plain number of comments made me stop after like 1/2 (It’s late in Germany right now).
    That being said, I’m a total fan of your work Bobby and I really hope you’ll keep up the great work especially on Last Blood as it’s my favourite. I keep sneaking in looks when reading +EV and checknig on the others cause i dont like RSS feeds :D . (To soulless :P )
    I’m looking forward to the movie like many others and honestly it nearly broke my heart when you wrote that LB your least favourite of your comics… I mean it hasn’t got anything of the depth of Dreamless or as much cool wit and poker jokes as +EV but well… it’s kickass at being the greatest zombie comic I’ve read…
    Anyways, I’ll watch/buy the movie and I guess I’ll go and buy the comic sometime soon. (not that much money as a student but that’s just a lame excuse)
    Just trying to be kind of motivational anyways, make some more pages to give me hope that I can buy a 2nd LB comic to go with the first and don’t let the story die please… on the other hand, give it a remotely satisfying ending, put that in another cool comic edition and I’ll buy it without getting on your nerves about LB again :D .
    Your call as always, I’ll simply keep waiting for updates on all your works.

    PS: I know it’s probably tedious, but how about answering some positive feedback more often as well? I don’t mean often but you do seem to pounce on any flamer in minutes(quickly anyways :D ) while ignoring praise mostly ;) .
