The Typical Wedding

This week, we’re getting ready for an invasion/wedding party.
I’m trying to decide if this is a better or worse option than the typical wedding that I attend.
On the one hand: scientifical-magical interdimensional shenanigans. These could go in the plus or minus column!
On the other hand: probably no cake — clearly a grave tragedy. And even if there was interdimensional scientifical-magical cake, would you actually eat it?
It’s a toss-up!
No preview this week, you’re just going to have to come back and find out what happens…

The sovereign has come for his bride

The citizens of the zone really know how to keep things interesting, don’t they? Although, I suppose calling them “citizens of the zone” may not be totally accurate at this point. What happens next is anybody’s guess, but I’m willing to wager that even Poughkeepsie’s most opportunity minded citizens would say that this most recent turn of events may have a negative impact on local tourism.

You see? There will be no fighting.

Addison and Jae are being chased by more than just meat puppets and monsters. Their pilgrimage continues, venturing beyond the borders of the spill. Thus far the zone and it’s fallout have stayed somewhat contained. But what will happen when the levees break and the technicolor evil begins to spread? Something is coming, indeed…

There’s something else coming!

We have to tell you.
When you have a giant magical super wolf thing chasing after you, it is definitely time to question your life choices. There may be other clues here about questioning your life choices too, but the wolf thing: it is a sign that you’ve gone a bridge too far.
In case you didn’t know! This is the kind of information that is super-important to take into consideration when you’re facing the kind of things that are coming up.

Where are you, Lexa?

Raise your hand if you think Addison is going to be happy to find out that Lexa struck out on her own.

 

Yeah, me either.  Vespertine may think that she has everything under control, but I’m pretty sure that the Wolf Thing parade is more than anyone really wants to handle. Come back next week, when I promise something is going to happen that no one saw coming.

The Fire is in Your Gaze Now

Woah. I don’t know about you, but that is entirely too many wolf things for my liking. I don’t just means the one in the foreground. The column of bodies fading off into the distance behind them is also deeply unsettling. Those cooling towers may be the source of the power in the zone, but it sure seems like our heroes are going to have a tough time getting there.

My apologies. I got so caught up by the horde of monsters, that I didn’t properly welcome you back to The Zone. Welcome back!  We’ve missed you terribly. And congrats to the more attentive readers among you who realized that the playground we see here is actually the first interior of the zone we ever laid eyes on, way back on page 2 of book one!

See you next week!

100 pages!

Hello Spill Zone fans! As the title of this post suggests, we’ve reached the 100th page of Spill Zone: The Broken Vow. It’s been a wild ride so far, hasn’t it? Well, after reading this week’s pages and the following preview, I hope you don’t doubt that there’s even more craziness coming.

Come back next week, when I cross-my-heart promise we’re headed back into the Spill Zone!

I found them plenty creepy, too. But, our guy comes back and says it's OK, it was "just--" I don't know what he meant to say, but anyone who looks at that and comes back and says it's just the creepy, possessed dolls prophesying the coming of Cthulhu or whatever they were doing has a very different definition of "creepy" than I do. I think he also needs to work on "Run! Run for your life!"

I don't know, I thought the dolls were talking about *Wiley* coming and that they were going to kill him. So I actually found them pretty creepy.

It says something when dancing, singing toys that would have most people running for the hills are just normal weirdness, nothing to get freaked out over. If these guys tripped over a blood-drained body, they'd be saying, "Oh, it's just vampires again. Put up some garlic. And get the bug spray. The mosquitoes are supposed to be bad this summer."

We Have Both Touched The Fire

Greeting Spill Zone fans! You’re going to have to wait just a little bit longer to find out what happens in The Zone, but we promise that it will be worth the wait.

We don’t have too much to share this week, but we will have some news in the next week or two. In the mean time, if you’re at Emerald City Comic Con, you should stop by the booth for :01 First Second Books. They have copies of the physical book for sale, and have temporary tattoos for anyone who picks one up at the show.

There are freaking monsters down there

This week in THE SPILL ZONE: Addison learns a new trick from her new friend Jae. She also learns that maybe she has less to fear in the zone than she once thought. Finally, we get a glimpse in to Jae’s past in North Korea, and some background on what caused the spill on the other side of the world. But can Jae handle Po-Town’s spill? You’ll just have to tune in next week to find out…

I don't understand why these posts from the RSS feed are not connected in any way to the comics themselves. It's nice to have a reminder, but I have to work out how to click back through to the latest chapter every time.

All manner of sh*t is about to go down

I don’t think you need anyone over here on team Spill Zone to reinforce the fact that things are about to go right off the rails.

we’re as excited as any of you for what is about to happen in the zone, but I can’t help feel bad for Addison. Tanea’s offer from book one sure seemed like a golden ticket, but as they say “Just when you think you’re out, interdimensional meat puppets pull you back in.”

I too have touched the fire.

 
Finally Addison and Jae meet, and Addison is curious about this stranger who seems to understand the spill. Finding a new “home” for Vespertine is proving to be more difficult than a trip to the toy store…maybe Jae can help.

Well that was a doozy, wasn’t it?

Sorry, Spill Zone fans. I bet you thought you were going to find out what was up with Lexa and Vespertine. Lexertine? Vespertexa? Hmm. Needs some work.

We didn’t really give you a preview last week, so we’re going to make up for it this time around and give you two. Trust us, you won’t want to miss this!

Oh, Addison.

‘Well, this is a pickle.’
Oh, Addison.
Oh, Addison. 
Didn’t you learn anything from reading scary stories and watching horror movies as a kid?
It’s always a bad idea to mess with the doll — especially when the doll is extremely super-creepy.
Good luck with this situation you have gotten yourself into despite numerous warnings!

My Village

One of the best parts of Spill Zone for everyone over here on team ‘Zone has been seeing how Scott and Alex bring the real world location of Poughkeepsie to life. But as we are learning more and more, Po’ Town isn’t the only place impacted by the spill. Don Jae  is, as far as we know, the only survivor of the spill in DPRK and we love this moment of seeing the Po’ Town zone for the first time. It does a great job re establishing not just how weird the zone is, but also how weird the consumer culture that has developed outside of the zone is.

And how much do you love the fact that while Don Jae might be a crazy super being of unknown power, he also really just wants a stuffed animal?

Thank you so much for Spill Zone! I love the art, the colors, and especially how dialogue is used sparingly. The many silent panels let the art lead the story with words there just to guide. It's graphic storytelling done right. Thank you!

Talk to me

We don’t know about you, but everyone over here on team Spill Zone is absolutely loving all of these conversations between character’s we didn’t know we needed. If Addison is able to talk to Vespertine and move things with her mind, what else will she be able to do? And more importantly, who do you think is going to meet up next week?

On that note, we’ve got a little sneak preview for you! Let us know what you think.

The Truth of the Zone

Happy New Year from the Zone!

Woah. This installment was a wild one, wasn’t it? I guess Tanea didn’t do such a good job following Addison’s instructions, but I suppose throwing caution to the wind is not a surprising trait for a person with such a large collection of illegal art. Not only did we finally start to get some answers about the true nature of the zone, but we also got some of the most beautiful visuals has yet to offer.

What do you think? Is Don Jae and Tanea the team up of the century? Will Reginald be okay? What do you think Tanea meant by “A civil war…”?

“Maybe you need some new toys…”

In this week’s installment, Don Jae gets to know Addison Merritt through her photography, and speculates that the Zone may have bigger plans for him than the North Korean government is aware of. Addison gets her sister Lexa alone and finally has a chance to talk to her without Vespertine’s ever present watchful eye. Will she get some answers about where Vespertine came from, and what she really is?

 

You’ll just have to wait and see, next Wednesday!

Fistful of Dollars

Addison’s been paid, and Marty is back.

It may not be what we hope for, but it seems like things aren’t going to get easier from here on out.

Back in the Big City

I don’t know about you, but everyone on team Spill Zone was pretty excited to see our very own patron of urban exploration and disaster art, Tanea Vandersloot, again. I know it wasn’t the warmest of reunions, but lets be honest, Tanea and Addison probably prefer it that way.

In other news, this installment has a lot more questions than answers. What’s going on with Addison? Is Tanea going to let curiosity get the better of her? And who was that waiting out by the car?

You’ll just have to come back next week to find out.

See you then,

-Team Spill Zone
