Major Zombie Love & Loss reviewed on CBR

Lefty's Major Zombie: Love & Loss graphic novel is reviewed in the 20 Feb installment of CBR (Comic Book Resources) Comics Should Be Good column. Major Zombie: Love & Loss was launch during the last STGCC and it is currently still available at G&B Comics (Block 1 Rochor Center, tel: 6837 2280), Prologue @Ion and all Kinokuniya outlets in Singapore and Malaysia.

Here is part of the review by Brian Cronin:

Every day this month I’ll be reviewing a different independent comic book, based on submissions from the creators of the comic books themselves.

The month continues with Major Zombie: Love and Loss, by Lefty and Tan Eng Huat, a real treat of a comic…

Gilamon Comics is a Malaysian independent comic book company founded by a trio of comic book artists: Lefty, Michael Chuah, and Chi Sau Lim. Recently, Tan Eng Huat (who has done a number of projects for Marvel and DC, including the very recent Thor: First Thunder series) has begun to work with them, as well. Tan Eng Huat draws the first of two stories in this magazine-sized, full-color magazine, while Lefty writes both stories and draws the second.

He has lost much of his original power, but he is still pretty darn powerful, and continues as a superhero known as Major Zombie, along with the female adventurer, Kaktus, as his sidekick (as obviously she feels indebted to him).

What’s interesting about this series is that Lefty, on his own, is a talented comic book artist. Here are a couple of his pages… (read the rest of the article here)

Let there be zombies 01

My weekend drawing. Did it with entirely with Wacom Intuos 3 and Photoshop CS4. Ok with the result, but took too long for a piece like this unfortunately. Still have a lot of rooms for improvement. There are simply not enough details. For instance, the hair should have more highlight, the clothings are too clean for a zombie. All these are second round observation. This is also a warm up as I haven't been drawing for some time. I need to find a faster way but yet give me better result. In other word, keep drawing till I get exactly what I want.
