This week’s featured webcomic is Awkward Zombie by Katie Tiedrich.
What’s the Deal?: Katie Tiedrich’s comic features herself, a few friends, and a LOT of video games. The first couple years worth of comics are about mostly Nintendo games, but some other popular titles make an appearance later in the series. The comic a mash-up of a slice of life and a gaming webcomic with some hilarious famous game protagonist characterization and a lot of self-depreciation. Awkward Zombie is in a similar vein of Virtual Shackles or even Penny Arcade.
The Characters: Pretty much every major player from the Nintendo universe makes an appearance at some point. Coupled with how ridiculously (and intentionally) awkward Katie is, each panel will make you at least chuckle, if not guffaw.
The Art: Her art is a departure from some of mypreviously featured storyline comics- it’s a little more crude and cartoonish. However, this super simplified/exaggerated style it fits a gaming webcomic well.
Safe for Work?: Yes.
Frequency of Updates: About once a week, typically Mondays.
