Oh hey, it’s a new coloring book full of sexy zombies, now available in the Scarlet Tentacle shop! Here’s the Official Description:
Sexy Zombies Attack! is an adult coloring book that features cover to cover bloodthirsty brain-crazy pin-up zombies, all dangerously ravenous, curvy and delightful. This bevy of brainy ladies comes ready for you to color them in every which way you like!
This bloodthirsty coloring book for adults will make a great gift for psychobilly aficionados, zombie apocalypse preppers, pulp & horror movie buffs and Rob Zombie, Sam Raimi & Joss Whedon fanatics alike.
Referencing classic and not so classic zombie movies & TV shows like The Walking Dead, Night of the Living Dead, Shaun of the Dead, 28 Days Later, Zombieland, Resident Evil, Idle Hands, Army of Darkness, Fido and Cabin in the Woods — as well as films like Stripper Zombies and Zombies vs. Strippers!, Chopper Chicks in Zombietown and the musical-horror-comedy film Nudist Colony of the Dead (that is a real thing, I kid you not) — this coloring book will keep you laughing, groaning, grimacing and running (cardio!) to the store to purchase more crayons and also some canned goods for just-in-case.
Real talk: if the zombie apocalypse does indeed come to pass, it wouldn’t be so bad if these pin-up zombies are the ones ripping your brains out and carrying your disembodied head around, right?
Actual real talk: As the illustrator and a queer feminist, I wanted to create a series of drawings that explores the relationship between the sexy female form, the male gaze, violence and our culture’s current obsession with the threat of undead masses.
This was such an interesting, thought-provoking coloring book to create — because we’re often presented with images of passive female bodies that are the victims of violence, I wanted to turn that trope on its head and present images of active female forms with agency, survivors who will bite back.
Also, extra special thanks to my test audience for giving me such great feedback on these images and the project as a whole.
Again, you can get your copy online here, and keep your eyes peeled for more coloring books, coloring book cards and more exciting new merchandise from Scarlet Tentacle debuting soon!
