What if a zombie had a mind of its own?
Where would it go? What would it feel? Would it, in fact, feel anything at all? What would the world be like without sleep, without touch - trapped in a body that is slowly turning to dust?
XOMBIE is the story of Dirge, a dead man with a mind of his own, who struggles against his posthumous cravings (not to mention legions of the walking dead) to reunite a lost child with her family. With the help of his trusty undead canine Cerberus, our hero treks across the hostile future wastelands, facing zombified creatures of every shape and size. Can Dirge protect a small child against the unrelenting armies of the dead? Will he discover other zombies like himself? And if a monster (no matter how grotesque) saves a human life, is it really a monster after all?
"One of the best online animated series to date." --Mr. Disgusting; Bloody-Disgusting.com
"A great story, full of monsters and quick one-liners and more than a little heart." --Johnny Butane; Dread Central

I wasn't thrilled that the whole series was now on DVD, but it made sense, and quite honestly it's a very neat package that comes with a good interview on how he created the series. There's also a tutorlal on how to use Flash which is pretty awesome too if you're into that sort of thing.
The only thing that I wasn't too fond of was the fact that the early episodes used to have other music such as the Kill Bill theme and things like that. Everything is now originally scored, which while I think is great, it is very clear in the opening episodes when original music was inserted. Some of the tunes don't flow as nicely with some of the scenes in the beginning of the series, but by the time you get to Episode 5, everything feels normal again (since by then, all the music was original).
So yeah, basically if you loved the Flash series and miss it, it's worth a pick up, but don't expect it to be exactly the way it used to. The music changed a slight bit in the beginning and thats about it.
I wish Farr continued with the series in a Flash format setting, but he switched over to comics, which I don't collect so... There goes that. This is still a worthy purchase in my collection though.
Then, in the bonus section, I found out that by using my computer, I could read the novel version of the series. A finalised version of the story. The plot stays the same, except for it's expanded in ways that have you guessing and wanting more.
This addition to the package, makes it a must have for any Xombie, and zombie, fan.
