Welcome back to Comic Monday! If this is your first time here then I apologize. If you’re returning then you should apologize to yourself! But since we are all here, let’s just make the best of this.
Today, I thought I would introduce you to some of the characters featured in “Slate & Ashe”. The cop and zombie comic I introduced you to last week. So without further stalling, here they are.
This plucky little guy is named Marlon Ashe. What he lacks in size he more than makes up for with lip. If he can’t shoot his way out a situation with his custom-made hand-cannon called the “Switch-Lock” than he’ll just shoot off his mouth. And I’m honestly not sure what’s worse. Point is, this cop goes together with zombies like…well, cops and zombies!
This here is the second half of the bizarre dynamic duo. Meet Dr. Vickrum Slate. As smart as he is cynical. His personality gives all new meaning to the phrase, “The living dead.” But despite his desert dry sense of humor and even drier skin, he moves like a jack rabbit on crack. Some believe he’s faster than a speeding bullet while others just think he’s allergic to them. Either way, he’s as much a nightmare for a cop’s gun as he is a running zombie.
Don’t let this guy’s golden locks fool you. Underneath Bertram Thomas’ winning smile and perfect set of abs lies a sadistic mercenary that would and has done anything for the right price. He’d even shoot his own mama…again! Amongst the bounty hunters, mercs and other degenerates there’s a little saying. “In the land of the bad-asses, Bert Tom’s got the biggest cheeks.” Do you know who coined this expression? Bertram Thomas! The only thing bigger than his prices is his ego. And that’s saying something.
Many have had the fortune of meeting the zombie known as Hyde. But almost none have survived the fortune. With the strength of an angry Hulk and the personality of a coked out Scarface, this mountain of muscle is as feared by the cops as he is by other zombies. He rarely speaks because he rarely needs to. His actions don’t just speak loudly. They scream. Only three things in this world are certain: Death, taxes and if you see Hyde, drop what you’re doing and run your ass off!!
Well thanks for taking the time to meet the crew. Hopefully they were less annoying than the person that created them. But seeing as how that person is me….
Please come back next Monday for more “Slate & Ashe”. Take care peoples!
