"ERMIN MEONSTOKE" Sacrifice Upon The Waves - Part Three Post Three

Having managed to incorporate a few more of the cruise liner's crew members previously, I was able to utilise one of their gory deaths within these first three panels to give a bit more detail about the layout of the vessel, and the composition of its staff. I even managed to squeeze in a quick reference to what type of decaying uniform my German zombies were wearing.   

Meanwhile back on dry land, I needed to finally remove Weimar's grandmother from the action, in order to be able to fully concentrate upon the arrival of the true leader of these Third Reich living dead. It did however give me the opportunity to show just how much affection the elderly woman's young ward still felt for her, despite the pensioner trying to feed her to the undead. 

Desperate to escape a house packed full of zombies Miss Priscilla faces the sinister mastermind behind the German corpses' invasion of the Cornish Coast. Whilst Ermin Meonstoke discovers just how powerful the Undead can be when they wear the Iron Cross...

"ERMIN MEONSTOKE" Sacrifice Upon The Waves - Part Three Post Two

Following on from the last post's revelation as to where the German zombies have risen up from, the first three frames of this instalment clarify just what Weimar's grandmother is up to on the Cornish Coast. But also momentarily give the protagonist's hope that they may be about to escape the ghouls' clutches - Only to have them immediately quashed by more of the walking dead coming in through the back door.  

The last frame finally sets up a genuine purpose for Meonstoke to achieve whilst on board the cruise liner, except for just generally surviving, and also provides the hero with a few more 'souls to save'... or be eaten. Ermin's dialogue is also once again based upon the actual layout of the passenger ship I used for the basis of the narrative.

With the cruise liner's lifeboats within sight, Ermin Meonstoke's fortunes take a turn for the worse as the vessel continues to sink and flood the corridors with even more of the hungry undead. Meanwhile Miss Priscilla confronts Weimar's grandmother for the last time..?

"ERMIN MEONSTOKE" Sacrifice Upon The Waves - Part Three Post One

This scene once again consists of my standard zombie-killing sequence, where a hapless victim is devoured and Ermin Meonstoke then dispatches the offending walking cadaver. However I did want to make it clear that my titular character and Mister Gotch were now surrounded by the living undead. This would allow me to have more of the ghoulish cannibal 'pop' up into frame at the most inopportune of moments for my heroes. 

In addition the dialogue (despite the spelling mistake) is reasonably important as it establishes just where these German zombies have come from, and perhaps more crucially, provides a link with the Third Reich undead also plaguing Miss Priscilla on the Cornish Coast.

Determined to defend her sightless charge, Miss Priscilla stands firm against a seemingly insurmountable horde of German carnivorous corpses... at least until she runs out of ammunition and Weimar's Prussian grandmother decides to open her home's back door...
