Big Movie News

Friday, July 22nd, 2011

This is a large reason why there hasn’t been a new page in many months. I don’t know when the next page will go up, but there might be exciting news on that front soon. Feel free to buy the first volume and to ask me any questions, in the comments or through instant messages (when available):

And don’t forget to check out my other comics and Owen’s comics. Marry Me and Dreamless really need to be movies as well. Both are available, to anyone who’s interested!

    *Super like* Best news I have heard this week!!!!

  2. Darius Says:

    W-O-W

    Congratulations!

  3. Del Says:

    Wait, two prequel novels? I am definitely interested in those. I really like the characters you’ve created. How long will they be? What’s their basic plot synopsis? How much will they cost?

  4. Moonie Says:

    I’m thrilled to hear this news. :) I just wonder how much different the movie script is from the comic? I was actually somewhat fond of the comic, well, maybe specifically the characters themselves, so I hope it’s not TOO different.

    Either way, I’ll totally go see Last Blood when it hits the theaters. :) Thanks for everything!

  5. Vincent Says:

    Wooooooooooooo!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! YES!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    Ok……

    I’m assuming that at least some of the content shown in Volume 2(well… the 20 pages of it anyway) will appear in the prequel novels.

  6. Lurano Says:

    That is so freaking awesome. Ive checked in everyday for the last 3 years, no matter update or not :D

    Cant wait to see the movie

    ten-fold cheers for ya people.

  7. Rick FUCKING Grimes Says:

    YES! Bobby I want you to know I always believed in your ability as a writer, you’re so much better then those hacks who do Ctrl-Alt-Del, or gaming shit like that.

    I know you never particularly liked Last Blood, but if you never loved the story you would have NEVER have told it in the first place. This is your chance to help retell the story the way you want, I really hope this goes well for you. I see Dreamless being your award winner, but this being the film that gets your name published.

  8. Sim^moN Says:

    Congrats on the great news =)

  9. Matt Says:

    Cheers man. And just remember to tell the Hollywood morons: DON’T let this suck. If they even mention Keanu Reeves and a soundtrack by Bieber or Tangerine Dream… Dude, run. Just run.

  10. Krey Says:

    That’s awesome, can’t wait to see the film.

  11. Jak Says:

    That is some big news. I can’t wait for that movie.

  12. Hereticus Says:

    I think I speak for the rest of the visitors to this site when I say

    YEAHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH

  13. Cassie Says:

    You know…I just found this comic today. I was very sad to know that I had caught up already but then read the great news. I am ecstatic for you and wish you the best with the film!

  14. EdoKun Says:

    My first day here and I already read all the pages from the beginning to there. So awesome !

  15. Eltharrion Says:

    Really, can’t express how happy I am. Last blood is GOOD, it got some good vampire-zombie fluff (more than “oh we’re mysterious guys who can do [X] things without explanation” or “yeah it’s a random virus that just popped out of somewhere”), and in all it’s balanced. It doesn’t go over the edge, but tries to grab it as much as possible. Nice work.

    Also, I think it’s the first webcomic I’ve heard to be made into a movie. I think that alone awards you with thumbs up.

    Finally, nice to see all the complains having disappeared and not following from the previous update.

    “Keep you head up and don’t get hit by a piano”.

  16. Ziepher Says:

    Just found this comic today, and im already through the lot?
    Darn, I guess I better just wait for the movie! This is brilliant… LOVE it.

  17. DawnStar Says:

    I’ve been checking in on this comic ever since I got the the end of the updates. I CAN’T WAIT for this movie. My only fear is that they won’t capture how awesome it is! I’ve read quite a few books and went to see the movie based off them only to be super disappointing. I’m very hopeful for this story though. If this turns out well this will definitely show off your talents and show the movie world who you are. :) Good luck!
    Also- I’m totally going to see this opening night with my brother (the one who introduced me to this amazing comic) :D ^-^

  18. Vic Says:

    Just dropping you a quick line to say CONGRATULATIONS!!
    I really hope this goes perfectly for you.

    Loved “Marry Me” and will check out “Dreamless”.

    Break a leg!!!

  19. Michelle Says:

    Way back when…I was pulling for your film to happen. I was wondering why there hadn’t been any updates…and now that I know why, I can only say…I’m very happy for you! Congratulations!!!

  20. Tala Says:

    Yesssssss!!!
    Can’t wait for the movie!!!

    Break a leg!

  21. Daggyr Says:

    Nice! Kol ha Kavod.

  22. michelle Says:

    yaaaaaaaaaaaay!

  23. annoyed one Says:

    This is unfair to all those people who keep updating their stories, who keep polishing their storywriting and who have original ideas.
    Bobby Crosby will make a lot of money out of something he barely touched over the last one and a half years. Break a leg, seriously, break it.
    You talentless hack.

  24. Dedpool Says:

    Great comic and ecstatic to see it go to color, and even happier it got optioned for a movie. I saw “Mutant Chronicles” and it wasn’t bad for an indie flick. I hope “Last Blood” gets that kind of polish. May i just suggest Devon Aoki as Devian.

  25. charles Says:

    Belated but Congratulations!

    Awesome news. I saw Mutant Chronicles and now I have Last Blood to look forward to.

    I wonder what the prequels will cover. Maybe Sofia’s original zombie outbreak in 12th century Bulgaria or the apocalypse as it takes place or even the whole debacle with Math, Francis and Sullivan all falling in love with Val.

  26. angelfrog Says:

    To be honest, i totaly lost interest from the lack of new pages. I come back after a year in Afghanistan, i find the link on an old computer account and decide to check it out… Interest is back. I found people camping out to see Potter or twilight to be dweebs but now thinking of camping for this :D

  27. MichaelCra Says:

    Grats again been awhile since i last checked in but when the movies do come out i’ll be sure to bug all my friends to see it.

  28. winter Says:

    this is awesome, although i do note that many months actually means over a year…

  29. CC Says:

    I’m a little late to the party but this great news, glad to hear (read) it.

  30. UndrePline Says:

    Last blood movie, WOO

  31. Timothy standish Says:

    Just found your site and webcomic today. really enjoyed it and posted the site on facebook. Hope the movie venture pans out for you and that we will see further pages soon.

  32. tigerbitten Says:

    Call me heartless, but I could care less about the movie. WHERE ARE THE COMICS?

  33. Anonymous Says:

    http://www.imdb.com/title/tt1213646/

  34. cherry Says:

    UPDATE THIS, PLEASE?
    http://www.imdb.com/title/tt1213646/

  35. Jenna Says:

    So, I heard about this comic from the Writing Excuses podcast and came over to give it a read. I was hooked… and then I come to this absolute “cliffhanger” which wasn’t meant to be a cliffhanger, but is the result of a neglected comic. Will you ever finish this? I had already added the first book to my shopping cart, but hesitate now if I’m never going to see a ‘finished’ or at least somehow ‘concluded’ story.

    Also, this news is pretty old by now. Any updates? Anything?

    …Bueller. Bueller?

  36. Jenna Says:

    PS: What about those novels that were supposed to be released last Halloween? Is there ANYWHERE I can find out more about this?

  37. Breat Says:

    just read up to here and now I really want more.
    great job btw.

  38. CthuluTheOld Says:

    AWESOME!!!! Okay now that I am really late to the party have the novels been released yet. And if so whats are the names? I have a lot of this cash stuff lying around with nothing to use it on.

  39. tehcub Says:

    I’m with tigerbitten. Where are the comics?

  40. BlondeWiccan Says:

    i know the movie is going to b awesome, and i cant wait for it. but youre killing me here! ive been reading last blood since i found the site thru sore thumbs when matheson and valerie first appeared. i miss the comic! r there ever going to b more page updates?

  41. Erica Minxy Says:

    Love this comic. Have been following it since day 1. I’ve not seen anything new here in about a year, but I keep checking, I’m so exited for that movie can’t wait, and Bobby!! Gratz man, you are my Hero!!!

  42. oneye85 Says:

    just wondering if there is any more movie news or dates set

  43. Jack Says:

    HURRY UP AND MAKE MORE COMICS ITS BEEN LIKE 2 years!!!

  44. Jona Says:

    What happened to the comics?

  45. Bob Says:

    This is the last time I’m going to check this comic. Its been 2 years since you put up a page, and despite your comments there’s no information forthcoming. I loved Marry Me, I had loved this comic, but there’s no point anymore. I’d like it if you would at least post “this comic won’t update anymore cause I’m making movies”, its kind of mistreating your fans as is.

  46. Kris C. Says:

    Updates???

  47. Hannibal Lecter Says:

    Wow, this comic has crossed the mark of one year without any update… that’s too bad cause I loved the story and the art. I hope it can be continued of at least finished at some point, so the story don’t die as this.

  48. Rimmon Says:

    it looks like comic is dead…well it was best comic i ever read so i hope it will be continued anyway..

  49. Skaves Says:

    Well I haven’t read this in a few years and come back to maybe three pages and no update for over a year or news on the movie. Seems like every thing fell threw and they don’t want to do it any more. shame it was good fun.

  50. Bobby Crosby Says:

  51. Anna Says:

    Is there any chance you guys will be continuing the comic? It took me over 4 years to find this comic again, and I’m sad to see how little it has progressed. I plan on watching the movie, too, but I really would like to read more of the story before it comes out. It has been one of the best comics I have read in ages, even better than all the mainstreams out there. Please continue?

  52. Jürgen A. Erhard Says:

    Comic looks to be dead (yeah, pun not intended). Movie… stuck in development hell? Ah, financing hell. Same difference.

    Or am I wrong?

  53. Anjetto Says:

    I’d love for you guys to update. I love this comic. I’m glad you’re getting a movie but I’d like more comic too!

    I’m greedy.

  54. JCMK Says:

    While it’s good news that the movie is actually still underway it IS taking forever for updates. You’d think he’d start to miss drawing it or something after awhile. And get some posts out there….

  55. Bystander Says:

    To the fans and author:

    Nice to see the support here of the great idea, and congratz to the author on his successes.

    Dont let the trolls get you down , and let the story come to you at your own pace, on your own ideas. If you dont think it right or are not properly motivated , leave it. You can always come back to it. Take constructive critisim and positive support. Tell the rest to STFU and forget about their envious As$es.

    To the trolls, my post on deadline seems appropriate to reproduce here.

    “So we can sum up what the trolls are saying:

    -OMG some other fail series with promise called mutant chronicles is just like this story I dont know the ending of and a movie I havent seen because its based on this story.

    *wrong*

    The movie will be what they make it and may or may not have the failings you percieve in the comic already published or the story you allude to (mutant chronicles)

    -It sounds like day breakers redux.

    *Maybe to you*

    Saving private ryan sounded like another forrest gump to some but was turned into a box office smash somehow.

    -Keep the idea lose the comic.

    *Why? Its the reason why everyones exicted enough to try to pan or troll the idea. Id understand no new comics until the movie comes out, but I hope the author has retained enough rites to make the coice to parody the movie in the comic or go his own way, and should he come to want to keep writing (and I hope for the same reasons he started it in the first place), wether its this or another story entirely, I congratulate you on your imagination, artistry and origional ideas. Dont be put off by the trolls.. you cant avoid them.. especially on the internet where you have this level of anominity.*

    -Please write more

    *I totally agree – let the poor guy breathe though and buck up. Its up to him and it wont happen unless he wants to, or can depending on where the story rites have gone here in the movie production, in which case you may see another story entirely later if anything at all.*

    To the author:

    Well done! Congratz!

    To the movie producers: dont be greedy , nurture the artistry and your movie will have the benefit of your creator’s origionality, and possibly a sequal down the road if you dont muzzle him by locking the rights away in some file cabinet.

    To the trolls: dont let your envy , bitterness and general goofy nature bugger yet another good thing on the planet. If you dont have anything nice to say just take a tall glass of STFU and move on.

  56. John Cruz Says:

    Came back after a couple of years of neglect, re-read the comic and was sad to find only a couple new pages.
    Best of luck to your current goals mate, we all know free web comics don’t put much bread on the table.

  57. Eric Says:

    I just found this comic today and read the whole thing in one sitting, just could not stop! I can’t wait to see the movie, you guys did an amazing job!

  58. DEATHETERNAL Says:

    I thought I would make the first comment of this year kindly asking you to tell us whether the comic is fully dead or if the possibility remains that you will continue it. It is your comic and you are fully entitled to stop working on it whenever you feel like for whatever reason, but telling everyone whether we should keep checking after all this time or quit bothering would be common courtesy.

  59. Bobby Crosby Says:

    “but telling everyone whether we should keep checking after all this time or quit bothering would be common courtesy.”

    I’d say something if there was something new to report. My last words on the subject were I believe something like, “No clue, we’ll see what happens,” because that’s what I always say, and that remains the case. If the movie goes into production, there’s a good chance we’ll start updating the comic again. Chances of it going into production in the next year are anyone’s guess — I’d say somewhere around 40 percent at the moment, but it changes all the time.

  60. charles81 Says:

    Sorry to hear the movie production is bouncing around a bit with timelines.

    But on a happier note, let me offer late congratulations on your wedding. Looked like a wonderful event and I hope you and the beautiful bride are happy together for the rest of your days.

  61. scott Says:

    pleaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaase finish the series even if the movie flops. its my favorite
