Dan Mendoza’s “Adorably UnDead” Zombie Cheerleader Variant Cover!

Creator of Cult Hit Series Zombie Tramp and a 13-plus year veteran of the Comic Book Industry, Dan Mendoza is the self-publisher and founder of Still ILL Princess Comics (https://www.stillillprincess.com). Dan’s other creator-owned titles and characters include Sad Girl Psycho Baby, Sugar Pop, and Knightmare Lynch’s Lil Six Kannibal Kitty. Dan’s list of cover artist credit includes, Lady Death, Vampirella, Red Sonja, Archie, Lady Mechanica, Unnatural, and now… Zombie-Sama: Dorm of the Dead!

“Everyone here at Crusade Comics flipped over Dan’s cover when it came in and we are honored to have such an incredible talent sharing his art with us.” Stated co-creator Billy Tucci. “Affectionately titled, “Adorably Undead” by us, it features a beautiful, zombified cheerleader with a katana through her heart. Poetic justice for one who’s obviously collected her share of hearts! “

But the jokes on Jim as this coed, though not quite “alive” is still kicking! 

Dan’s cover is offered in three limited variations; Standard, Jeweled and Metal Cover Editions. His and all the other limited perks are available here:
