An Apocalyptic Party? It's Just the Beginning....

Posted by Bryan / November 10, 2013

Z'Isle is a bilingual Montreal-based comic series featuring all of your favorite haunts, haunted by the living dead. It is filled with painstakingly evocative illustrations. Artist Dan Buller is part of the acclaimed and beloved street art collective En Masse. Alongside the realistically rendered biting zombies you can read into the subtle and biting social commentary. What happens when consumption gets out of control? This is about zombies in Montreal, and also about the self-destructive beast inside of all of us, and how we might be able to control it.

(Guest post by Leah G.-W.)

If you are a fan of gore, you will love it, because it features a post-apocalyptic fight for survival against zombies. Not into blood and guts? Z'Isle is about more than gore. If you feel touched by climate change, friends, bikes, transit, mayors, corruption, electrical outages, poutine, routine, language politics, or anything else, then you may be touched by this story. In Z'Isle, we see, in our very own city, how new models of social organization, decision-making, and distribution emerge, taking the place of a system that was destroyed 7 years earlier.

I spoke with one of the collaborators about the project. Because zombies are coming, I just had time for quick questions.

Midnight Poutine: Which came first: The name 'Z'Isle' or the idea for the comic.
Lateef Martin: The comic. Almost a decade ago, we were lamenting the loss of the serialized comic and wanted to do that. So we are!

MP: Which came first: The concept of the end of the world or the concept of the living dead
LM: Concept of the living dead...but we wanted to personalize it. Dan (our illustrator) and I are big fans of the zombie genre, we wanted to add our vision of how things would go in a Montreal setting. Just as the Walking Dead shows you what happens after the credits of your average zombie film, we want to show you what happens...7 years later.

MP: Which came first: the illustrations or the text
LM: Text, though it's a constant back and forth--they feed each other.

MP: Which came first: the heart or the brain
LM: Brain.

MP: Which came first: For the scenes in Montreal, a sketch from memory, or a visit to the site?
LM: Reference, reference, reference!

MP: Which came first: English or French
LM: You wanna start a war? It will be a challenge, but we want French and English characters throughout.

MP: Which came first: the nap or the all-nighter
LM: The all-nighter...with a nap in it.

The Z'Isle team invites you to the launch party on November 14th at the Royal Phoenix. It's free, with DJs Roxy Moron and Sweet Daddy Luv, and you'll get a free teaser. You can get all zombified at a make-up booth, and get a portrait done if you'd like...with a prize to the best-dressed zombie. There will be door prizes and raffles of items from the wild world of Z'Isle. Stay in touch with Z'Isle on Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, and Tumblr.

Shoes wife liked, very soft leather, to the whole five-star rating! Already received, it is like the green color is very retro, with very little control or not, but still left! Already received, and then again through a period of evaluation, friends say good-looking, wearing thin legs look.
