             When you picture yourself as a Zombie, which month did you turn? Are you a winter, spring, summer or the favorite of all Zombies Fall?  Now is your chance to show the world what you will look like when the zombie apocalypse finally happens.   Join Forbidden Panel in creating a Zombie Pinup calendar nobody will forget.

            Are you going to be sharing the Zombie Love in February and serving brains on a platter to your love or celebrating Independence Day chasing the crowds watching fireworks?  In October will you be the Zombie teaching your ways to the newly turned?  Use your imagination in creating your version of a Zombie Pin up for each month of the year.  Who will be chosen, no one knows, but we are dying to find out.

       To be considered for Calendar submission you must be 16/17 years old with parents’ permission or older.  Please provide a Headshot, preferred month and a short statement about why you want to be included in the Zombie Pinup Calendar. The headshot does not need to be professionally done nor does it need to have you in zombie makeup. It is just being used to accompany the information provided so that we know who you are and are able to put a face to the name. Submissions will need to be received no later than June 21st to be considered for the 2022 calendar. Pinups will be given the choice of either doing their own make up or having one of our Forbidden Panel FX artists provide it for them.

Shooting for the calendar will take place between July 15th and Aug 15th of 2021.

Forbidden Panel appreciates everyone under the Rainbow, so long as that Rainbow is dipped in blood. Everyone is welcome to send in a submission.

All Submissions can be sent to forbiddenpanel@gmail.com

Post Covid is an autobiographical mini comic by a Southern Californian Mail Carrier.

Simultaneously it gives insight into what it was like during the Covid 19 Pandemic up until the 4th of July 2020. Just weeks before USPS was in the news for historic mail delays.

You can purchase copies at the Cat & Crow Club store Cat & Crow Club store.

As a final response to terrorism and crime, the U.S. government plans to broadcast a signal making it impossible for anyone to knowingly commit unlawful acts.

Based on the Radical Publishing graphic novel created by Rick Remender and Greg Tocchini, The Last Days of American Crime is directed by Olivier Megaton, written by Karl Gajdusek, produced by Jesse Berger, p.g.a., Jason Michael Berman, p.g.a., and Barry Levine, with Sharlto Copley also co-starring. Watch The Last Days of American Crime on Netflix June 5.

Justin White, Bryan Kreusch, and Myself

10 Years ago I sat at a tiny 4′ table next to two guys I hardly knew in a comic book store I had just started to go to and poured my heart out to a bunch of people I had never met. It was on that day that the 3 of us released our first comic, a 10 page #0 issue introducing the everyone to the world of ZKS Zombie Kill Squad. At the time we thought we were kings of the industry and beamed with pride in every way imaginable. We thought, it couldn’t get any better than this. We were dead wrong.

What started as a plea for us to get our foot into the comic book industry turned into waterfall of experiences for us. Fans loved us, locals ate us up, and stores were happy to stock us. We were taken aback and immediately humbled by the out pour of love we got from everyone.

We were invited to do all different sorts of shows and neither of us said no. The popularity allowed us to not only launch a second book, but to also be invited to do a signing at San Diego Comic Con.

We loved doing shows. Meeting new fans was always so humbling for the both of us. We even got to do free comic book day and participate in 24hr comic book day for 8 years in a row.

Eventually people started to take notice of our hard work and hustle. And so, without realizing that is was happening, our little family grew.

A growing family meant a growing cataloge which eventually led us to running 2 of our own comic expos as well as 3 Zombie Beauty Pageants.

But no matter how large or how small our family became, Justin and I never forgot where we came from and what got us there. 10 pages, 10 years, and hoards of zombies later we are still here.

Which leads us to now. In a few weeks Forbidden Panel will be launching a Kickstarter campaign to help us raise money to put on The Return Of The Zombie Beauty Pageant!! If we can reach our goal then we will be bringing back to ZBP for one last run, a grand finale. So keep an eye out here and on our social media pages for that announcement.

And finally, thank you. YOU. Our fans, our friends, our families, without whom none of this would have been possible. I never thought I would be here, 10 years later, still writing ZKS comics and working with FP. You have all made my dreams come true and allowed me to take my life in a direction I never thought possible. Thank you.

Thank You 4 Color Fantasies for having the balls to not only stock us but include us. Your trust in us helped us be here 10 years later. There are so many people that were involved in keeping us alive for a decade. I wish I could list you all.

And thank you Justin for trading a website for a comic book. Who knew 10 years later I would still owe you that website.
