Viking Zombie Boyfriend, by Jeremy Rizza (3-16-11)

This week finds young Paco recovering from a breakup with his first ever boyfriend.

Reminder, this is not a kiddie comic. VZB is about grown up gay men, talking about grown up gay men stuff.

Jeremy writes: Paco quotes a line from a Linkin Park song in panel two, although the tune in question isn’t a love song.  I had to do some online lyric searching to find something from a band I thought Paco might like. 

My “placeholder” line before I found the Linkin Park quote was “The Eurythmics were right! Love is a stranger in an open car!” Because I’m old. But seriously, the middle passage of that song about how love fucks with your head suddenly had profound meaning for me after I broke up with my first-ever boyfriend (in a panic, because I realized we had nothing in common.)
