Lucky is a 100-page graphic novel that explores horror tropes by telling a zombie story from the less human side. It tells the story of Mack, a garbage man whose life is changed forever when his typical route is disrupted by a zombie outbreak. Unable to fight off the zombies, Mack is bitten and becomes one himself. The story continues as we follow Mack on his journey as a newly turned zombie.
The idea for Lucky was conceived after watching a horde of zombie movies, mainly the ones by Romero. I realized that there are few, if any, zombie stories told from the perspective of a zombie. All zombie fiction centers on a small group of survivors trying to combat the force that is the undead. So I set out to write a story told through the eyes of zombie.
The project is written by Jerry Willoughby and illustrated by Zane DeGaine.
