Webcomic Review: No End by Erli and Kromi /// the zombie apocalypse has never been gayer

1495558194-01-00

Summary: No End is a webcomic about a group of people struggling to survive in a post apocalyptic country ravaged by an unyielding winter and hordes of undead. Living amid a world of horror doesn’t erase the cast’s day-to-day worries about identity, family, friendship and betrayal, as they seek people they can trust, as well a legendary place called “Haven” rumored to be free of the cold and horror.

Just as none of them are sure that it even exists, they aren’t sure what their place in their world is. But each step forward leads towards who they are, who they should become, and where they belong.

Due to it’s initial inspiration from an RP shared by the creators, No End has always strongly focused on its characters – their growth, their motivations, and the bonds woven between them. The post-apocalyptic setting is used to add suspense, and to put emphasis on the character’s internal struggles. This webcomic also features LGBTQA+ themes and characters – all the characters in the main cast are queer.

The comic updates every Sunday and Wednesday!

★★★★

Ever watched The Walking Dead and then got fucking bored of it but you’re sort of missing those zombie vibes?

Look no further, this extremely queer webcomic is just the right thing for you.

The story follows a main cast of five: Modra, Benny, Wight, Jenn and Cotton, as they team up and travel to search for the mythical town of Haven.

It’s been decades since the zombies appeared so things are somewhat static (as opposed to those “the zombie apocalypse just started” plots), with towns run by the military and towns run by civilians, and spread out between them a wasteland that not many like to venture.

Of course, all of the main characters have some secrets, things they are running from and things they can’t outrun, and things that catch up with them as they visit new towns and meet old and new people.

The main squad that I mentioned above is supported by an amazing cast of secondary characters. There’s honestly not one that you won’t fall in love with, and best of all, they’re all diverse and the allocishet have never been heard of in that world ever. Yes, everybody is queer and there’s both sweet and endearing romances and frustratingly (in the best sense) angsty romances that will make you yell at your screen quite literally.

This is very much a character-based webcomic (just how I like my webcomics tbh), but it has some truly heart-stopping moments and some seriously scary characters and plot lines. I wouldn’t say this is horror but there is some gore sometimes and personally one storyline creeped the hell out of me.

Meet the characters:

prof_modra

 

Modra, actual cinnamon roll, blue aesthetic gay, comes from a privileged family and needed a change of air. Wouldn’t know how to survive on his own but is trying to learn.

prof_benny

 

 

Benny, angry bisexual, biracial white/Korean, a disaster at romance, needs to work on communication.

prof_wight

 

Wight, tragic gay, will make you want to kill everyone in the room and then yourself if something happens to him, doesn’t always smile or laugh but when he does you can see it in his eyes, actually makes you want to cry.

 

prof_jenn

 

Jenn, asexual queen of not trusting anybody, actually a mom friend, level-headed, Cotton’s best friend, relatable because of her love for her brother Wight.

 
prof_cotton

Cotton, fingergun bisexual, Iranian, bad puns and double-entendres, can read people except when it directly affects him, I actually yelled at him?? needs to learn coping mechanisms, always puts the others first.

 

prof_ramona

 

Ramona, Black lesbian, accidentally adopted a son at 15, backbone of our society really, looks like a cinnamon roll but might kill you.

 

prof_mav

 

Maverick, puts the “foul language” in “pansexuality”, looks like he might watch you die without raising a finger but is actually always ready to help, loves his mom and cats.

prof_jerry

 

 

Jerry, charming pansexual, steals the scene whenever he’s there, smoothest flirting game, needs to quit smoking tbh.

 

 

The comic is already really long with 9 full chapters but it’s also ongoing and I know there’s still a lot of characters we’re gonna meet and I can’t wait, but this is already in my top 3 “webcomics with the best characters” list. Seriously, it’s been weeks and I can’t stop thinking about them, and while I was reading it and had to pause to like, go to uni or shower I kept finding myself thinking about them as if they were real people.

Also, I love the art so much?? I don’t know how to describe art but I love the colors used and how the artist draws expressions. Even in Wight it’s always so clear when he smiles (please make him smile more) or his expression changes because it’s all in the eyes.

GSHGSHSGHSLGSLHLFSHG I just love this so much, please don’t even waste time adding it to your TBR and go read it immediately (and then come back and talk to me about my children).
