It needs to be said, so I’ll say it: Welcome. Thank you for stopping by. I think I speak for my brother as well when I express the hope that you find our little comic enjoyable and that you might stop by again. Our current publishing schedule is Monday, Wednesday and Friday, with additional news updates as required.

Haiku Comics is written by my brother, Robert Olsen, and drawn by me, Nathan Olsen. This collaboration began tentatively just a few weeks ago at Bob’s suggestion, and I’ve personally found the experience to be great fun. While the focus has thus far been on the undead, we have left the door open to exploring other pastures as we see how things progress. For now, however, I hope that you really enjoy zombies, because as I look over the schedule for the next few weeks, it’s all zombies, all the time.

Tomorrow we will be beginning our first multi-part storyline, which should serve as a gentle reminder to the reader of the threat posed by the undead during casual night-time strolls through one’s neighborhood parks and┬ácemeteries. Remember, if you must be out at night, please walk briskly. And keep a wooden stake and cross with you at all times. Only constant┬ávigilance┬ácan quell the rising rate of attacks by the undead during this global pandemic.

Don’t be a victim. Be alert. Be prepared. And travel in groups whenever possible.

  1. We know that the zombie hordes are at our doorstep. I think that you both should be commended for the community service that you are providing. Too many will simply be at home when the undead come calling. Note that in these PSAs that folks that are not ready are the ones that are the victims. Keep plenty of food onhand, canned goods, rounds for your weapons, a safe room, etc…Be prepared, or be prepared to feast on brains. PRO-TIP: Remember that a strong blow to the center of the skull should be enough to fell MOST zombies.

    Know thy enemy.

  2. Very well put. However, I would add that while zombies are one of the more prevalent threats for which one must be prepared, there are other creatures that stalk the night that cannot be stopped through the use of force alone. I would highly recommend sealing doorways and windows with magical incantations and maintaining an assortment of religious and pagan talismans for warding off some of the more aggressive creatures one might face. Vampires, while infrequently encountered, are clearly one of the more well publicized threats to mankind, but there are many lesser-known subhuman species that many choose foolishly overlook.

    The subject is clearly too broad to be covered here in sufficient detail. There are many great field guides being published on the subject that are being distributed through food rationing stations and more and more communities are hosting undead preparedness and self-defense classes as well. Making use of these resources is highly recommended.
