Focusing on transmedial entertainment franchises such as Night of the Living Dead, 28 Days Later, Resident Evil, and The Walking Dead, this article takes a straightforward formalist approach in order to study how zombies are represented in comics. It wishes to analyse the graphical expression of movements, the ways comics panels are laid out, the importance of the spatial coexistence of the images and the depiction of the (compulsive) repetition of the attack scene shown in movies and video games in order to explain why zombie fictions and their post-apocalyptic worlds are very easily translated into comics and why the ninth art is able to portray in an exemplary manner the transmedial figure of the zombie.
