Dead Of Summer is a Zombie Apocalypse webcomic written by Marty 'F'nday' and Nick 'Ghostfreehood'. At the moment, it is complete, though Nick has stated that it "isn't necessarily over but for the moment. I can't say when it could return but before my life's work is over, it will be done."

The comic is divided into two distinct Books, each set in Baltimore. Book 1 revolves around the adventures of the main character, Nick, as he wakes up one morning to find the city overrun by the undead. While his major priority is to escape, he soon runs across other survivors--Marty, Dan, and Ed, to name a few. They begin to adventure across the city, killing copious zombies along the way. And that's just the beginning. Tensions rise, as does the body count, as one by one, Nick's newfound allies are killed. Soon, he's the only one of the group left. Overcome with exhaustion and guilt, contemplating suicide, he collapses as a zombie approaches.

Nick wakes up in a room, on a pile of zombified bodies. He is somehow perfectly alive and well. End Book 1.

Book 2 picks up right where Book 1 left off. Nick discovers that he's in the Baltimore Zoo, which has been taken over by the military. Dr. Alan Stone and his wife, Lydia, are scientists with a plan to destroy the zombies. But Lydia seems occupied with a dead monkey, Tito, and there's hints that Alan's not quite right in the head. Not to mention William, the head zoologist, who's bitter about the zoo being taken over. Eventually, both he and Nick are exiled into the irradiated city...

The rest really needs to be read.

The archive can be found here, and the first comic can be found here. Normally the wiki would link to the main page, but the main page has the very last page of the comic on it. (Currently the links are from the Internet Archive, as the site proper has been hacked)

Tropes used in Dead of Summer include:

  • And I Must Scream: A comic page has this as the title, and it does happen with Panther, who's found at the bottom of a cliff, tied up, with a bag over his head. As revealed in his inner monologue, however, he starts screaming in the hopes that anyone can hear him.

  "If they can hear me, they can help me. Please, God...let them hear me."

  "We will not go quietly into the night!"

  'There was no one more soulless than Dr. Alan Stone.'
