The battle continues between Janey Belle, the Zombie Tramp, and her mentor, Xula. Now there are innocent bystanders as the cops show up to see what all the commotion is about. This is one call they're going to regret taking as they become little more than cannon fodder for these two women as their epic showdown reaches new heights.
If you read the previous issue of Zombie Tramp, you basically read this one too, as it's a lot of the same stuff. Janey and Xula square off like two Dragon Ball Z characters, shooting large beams of energy at one another and screaming at the top of their lungs. They take a quick break to take on the cops before turning their attention back to each other.

Where things get interesting is towards the end of the issue where Janey makes a great move that gives her the upper hand. This shows how the student has become the master. Xula may have created the Zombie Tramp, but she may not be prepared to fight her and all her new abilities.
Artist Celor captures an animalistic quality to this fierce female fight. (Yay! Alliteration!) The women literally leap into action to stab, claw, and tear at their opponents. As mentioned in previous reviews for Zombie Tramp, you know what you're getting into with a book like this. The artwork is pure cheesecake with two busty, skinny women battling it out in string bikinis. There are times that it's very surprising they're not knocked out by one of their own boobs.

One aspect of Zombie Tramp I'll never get tired of is when Janey inhabits a new body. She can't really die in the traditional sense, as her spirit flies out and then jumps into a new host. She then adjusts its form to match her own. Her next target is a petite female officer. Her shirt pops open, unable to hold back the weight of the additional bust sizes that were just added in. It looks like a painful transformation at first as Janey takes control, but then she eases right into her new body and everything is right as rain.
Zombie Tramp maintains its status as a campy, sexy horror tale that would be at home on Cinemax in the late hours of the evening. It's not a book that takes itself too seriously, although there is an overarching narrative that pushes the story forward. Janey Belle has been through a lot. She's now in a position of power and she's not going to let anyone take that away from her. I just wish we got a little more from the story this time around, as it's basically one long fight sequence.
