Comic description

The Other Grey Meat explores a world where clever zombies are capable of carrying on a reasonable argument to rationalize why they have the right to eating your brains. Expanding further on this concept, TOGM comic goes on to explain an amusing zombie hierarchical system in which the upper-level undead, in fact, appear very much alive.

Highly intelligent, and recognizing a need for order amongst the chaos, senior level zombies live in houses, have active social lives, and are gainfully employed. Some have even been able to develop makeup, prosthetics and plastic surgeries that enable them to seem as alive as possible. It is as if the apocalypse has never happened.

Because all of the human brains have already been consumed, a super-genius (who is the Top Tier Zombie) develops a brain substitute that he calls The Other Grey Meat. It satisfies the society’s craving for brains, but seems to be lacking a key ingredient. Everything is running smoothly in this living dead society when, suddenly, a human with a real brain is thrown into their midst…

Progress hasn't moved too far since the last update. The page that had to be added was added, but the uncertainty about how it would affect things resulted in a bit of an art slump.

I believe she was working on something unrelated, but getting the artistic juices flowing again, so we'll hopefully have some headway made in the next little while.

I might letter and release the first page, just so that people get a sense of what's going on. I just don't want to start releasing pages, get caught up to where the art is, and then pressure June before the ending.

Fortunately, there are lots of areas in which the story does not directly touch on that could result in future side projects, if we are so inclined.

As a side note, we're looking forward to seeing your own comic get going!

Since TOGM is returning with an all new ending I decided to reread the last bit to refresh my memory!

And can I just add I'm excited!!!

Hi there! Thanks for your interest and feedback :D From an art point of view, I have been either using Photoshop CS5 or 6, depending on where in the timeline you're reading. I also switched from an Intuos 3 to a Cintiq 21UX somewhere in the middle of the comic. I plan to start using Manga Studio 5 for our next and new upcoming comic Fuss & Shush. Other programs I also use are Wings 3D, Poser and Google Sketchup to help me set up the scenes, especially backgrounds and perspectives. *ugh* :)

Hi there,

We host on ComicFury... This layout is pretty much one of the basic layouts. We used to have a custom one, but I found that it was causing some difficulties, so I switched it back to the default.

Skrael is the artist (as you can see by her name), so I will let her explain what she uses to make the art :) I use Illustrator for the word bubbles though.
