Repeating the opening lines of NoMeansNo's havoc-tastic song "It's Catching Up" -- indeed; the dead walk.
The premiere episode is slated to hit on Halloween. Set your recorder.
Here's the trailer for the series:
And for good measure, here's NoMeansNo's "It's Catching Up."
Pictures For Sad Children is an excellent, sometimes terribly sad, most-times painfully funny comic strip. The writing is singular, and the subject matter is often dark dark dark yet it'll unerringly strike chords with you-the-reader. Recommended.

It's a Fuck You Friday.
That's right, a Fuck You Friday. Every Friday is.
This is inspired by Achewood, the incredible work of Chris Onstad. Achewood is a comic, and a series of blogs, and in fact, a series of fictions involving most formats that involve printed matter -- including cookbooks, zines, and paintings.
Onstad's immensely moving/horrific/sad/hilarious series is one my favorites, and one of my inspirations. There is nothing that better captures the spoken cadences of Northern California better than Achewood. It is a difficult canon to explain yet marvelously easy to recommend. Start at the beginning and just keep reading 'til the characters start finding their respective voices... then by that point, you're hooked.
We honor Onstad, and we honor Fuck You Friday. In the words of Ray Smuckles, "[T]ake old Fuck You out for a spin today. You'll be glad you did! Take care, and... fuck you!"
Here, now, is the original Achewood that began this-all. From 2005/01/07, this is the original Fuck You Friday:
