Awkward Zombie is a comedy webcomic about video games by Katie Tiedrich. It was launched in 2006.


The comic consists of gag-a-day parodies of ridiculous situations that could occur in video game worlds such as The Legend of Zelda, Super Smash Bros., and Metal Gear Solid, but some include Tiedrich herself as a character. The comic is entirely non-sequential, with no main characters or plotlines. Because of this, the comic can be read entirely out of order.

Content Warnings

Awkward Zombie features blood and cartoon violence. It also features characters from video games rated Mature.
