Derrick Fish, The Wellkeeper, and Zombies at the Gate~!


so here's something that we've been sitting on for so long that we're all about to bust!

last year, craig and i received this awesome Perhapa-Pin-Up from comic book writer/artist/creator
DERRICK FISH! it was a super-cool image of the Haps battling back some Zombies and we immediately made plans to include it as a supplement to Danger Down Under!

then we went to HeroesCon where we met the fun and fabulous Derrick himself...

... and got a chance to hang a bit and chat. there, he wowed us with copies of his wonderfully fantastic independent comic THE WELLKEEPER, a gorgeously illustrated journey of magical adventure!

somewhere along the line, i told derrick that i had actually plotted a short Perhapanauts vs. Zombies Tale  originally intended to appear in a upcoming volume of  Rich Woodall's thrilling Zombie Bomb anthology, but time and time weren't on our side, so the script got shelved.

before you could say " Nosmo King", derrick jumped up and offered to draw the zombie story and craig and i, in turn, jumped at the chance.

and now, after months of all of us getting things done in our--ha ha!--spare time (derrick on pencils and inks, craig and i on letters, the lovely rich woodall on formatting and such), we are all very proud to present...

Perhapanauts rule, as always, and Derrick has been a friend for about 10 years now, and every year he's gotten better as an artist, worked harder, and EARNED every opportunity he's gotten. This is a fantastic read, and I recommend keeping your eyes peeled for more great stuff from him. You guys rock for giving him another showcase to SHINE!
