Swords of the Undead (graphic violence)

Postby Steve Hubbell » Wed Feb 25, 2015 15:30 +0000

I needed a break from my interview archive project, and I ran across this saved on my old computer while digging out some interviews that were trying to hide. Not sure where I found this originally (Deviant Art maybe?) or how long ago, or even who did it. I spent a little while trying to re-find it so that I could post some more accurate credit for whom-ever actually created it. If Usagi Yojimbo can be considered a graphic novel take on the golden age of samurai films, then this would fall more under the influence of the violent exploitationial samurai films of the late 60's and early 70's (i.e. Zatoichi, Lone Wolf & Cub) with their more graphic action.....

Holy SMOKES! That is intense and not suitable for all ages, eh? Very cool, though. Did it ever make it into comic form? Do you know when it was made? $3.00 for "faux" cover price would place it in the late '90's, correct? Definitely inspired/influenced by Usagi. I know you said that you found it saved on your old computer but do you know if it was ever published in paper form? I would like to read more.
