Hey all, Ambush Bug here with another clickable delight from the wide and wild world of webcomics. THE HORROR OF COLONY OF 6 is written by Christian Beranek and Tony DiGerolamo with art by Texas based illustrator Tommy Phillips and was released on September 6th. The story is set In a future where humans have conquered space. With technology and civilization they have brought pollution and corruption to the universe -- and on Colony 6 something went wrong. So far there’s only been about 7 pages added, but in those 7 pages it’s apparent that it’s a pretty sweet sci-fi / horror tale with space suits and flesh eating monsters. This webseries has a EC horror vibe with some pretty sweet Bernie Wrightson-like art. THE HORROR OF COLONY 6 is just a click away and perfect reading for this spooky time of year! Check out the preview below director Ben Meares.

    I was in a Zombie Walk in downtown Detroit last month

    by mortsleam

    It took place just as the Lions game was letting out. A sea of zombies vs. a sea of Blue and Silver. One douche-bro called his friend on his iPhone, saying, "I dunno man, it looks like the Thriller video or something." <p>One week later, another Zombie Walk took place in Hazel Park. Four people were shot by survivalist nutsos who thought it was the rapture.

    Larsen still pumping...

    by Mr Soze

    Haven't pick'd up a funny mag in years, but Savage Dragon was always a favorite.

    When will this renewed interest in zombies please come to an end? It's being done to death. Though, I'll admit I'd prefer that we put a stop to the "sexy vampire" movement first.

    Egah Beva is GROSS

    by FeralAngel

    Dump him, Mickey. And stick with the red shorts, while you're at it. Man, I love the old Floyd Gottfredson Mickey Mouse comics. In those, Mickey lives in a small rural town, where people use candlelight at night and everything is so picturesque. Horace Horsecollar and Clarabelle Cow still exist in Mickey's world, and they're pretty engaging characters too, thanks to Gottfredson's writing. These newer comics don't do it for me, but I am totally looking forward to the upcoming comics based on Epic Mickey. The glimpses I've seen have been...well, epic, plus awesome and mindblowing and incredibly fun. CAN NOT WAIT.

    I use to love savage dragon

    by Rebel Scumb

    I'm sure its still a lot of fun, but after issue 78, he tried to make it more kid friendly which I didn't like. Still I admire his dedication to try and do the longest single run as writer/artist of any funny book. I think he only has Dave Simms cerebus 300 issue run now to beat for the record.

    I like Erik Larsen but...

    by Arkhangelsk

    The guy is genuinely interesting when expressing his opinions, and he seems like a really nice guy. But Savage Dragon is just not my thing. I've tried it time and time again, but I just can't get into it. Company of Monsters on the other hand looks very interesting. I missed issue 1 and can't find it anywhere, so I guess I'll wait for the inevitable trade to come along.

    Started SD with the Mini-Series, quit when the Kirby-inspired st

    by savagexp

    Every once in a while I think about going back, but then I look and see that he's only putting out like 9 or 10 issues a year and it's impossible to know when one is coming out. Time was, Erik made a big deal about not using thought balloons or Editor/Writer's notations. He started using these crutches in the Kirby-era and it greatly diminished the book for me.
