WOW! Such a thrill!
This is the first time I enter a forum after... well... a long time.
I'm Zed. I'm pretty sure I'm one of the oldest in here.
I'm a graphic designer, formerly indipendent comic book author, from Italy with a passion for comic strips.
I love to make people smile. But in the smarter way I know (well... knowing myself, I suppose it won't be so smart after all, hehehe).
I don't draw and write comics for a living at the moment (but I'm working on it!). It's pretty much an urge
Bonny-Zed is my comic strip. It started in 2007 more or less. It was published on a website and then printed (both books are sold out). It talked about a couple of "weird" teenagers.
Why do you should read it?
Well... I've noticed that I've a pretty different background and style than typical Tapas users (maybe it's my age, maybe my origin or the fact I've read literally tons and tons of comics from all over the world). So you could find my comics very curious.
Then... Bonny-Zed talks about us. And it tries to play down and make you laugh. Always.
Bonaventura, the main character, was a pretty nerdy boy who thought he was as scary as a skeleton due to his dysmorphophobia. His best friend is a real pumpkin head... literally. Despite their halloweenish looks, their misadventures were quite funny. Then, one day, I brutally interrupted the comic. For more than 10 years.
Now they are young adults and they're back. Weirder and funny than ever. But something has changed. Bonaventura wants to be called Zed... Zed for Zombie. Why? 'Cause is dead.
What's happened during these ten years? Well... I will reveal it to you if you continue to follow their (mis)adventures.
Write me back. I like to chat and answer to questions.
Thanks Ratique for the thread!
