A few years ago, I wrote and illustrated a short story called "Dead Charlie and Zombie Bob", which I first posted in Aug 2011 here:
It was featured in the horror comic anthology "Dark Mischief volume 2" available here:
Recently, an animated short was produced for Nick called "The Zombie Brothers", and the character designs look awfully familiar…
Loving tribute, blatant ripoff, or mere coincidence? (I'm guessing the latter).
I'm going to let this one go. The short is funny and well animated. I wish the creators the best of luck
(but if they ever make Zombie Brother action figures, I'd love a set…)
