Janey Belle has changed.  Sure, she’s been undead for a bit, and has been feeding off of the flesh of the living, but she’s leaning heavily into the darkness lately as the Kaiju Queen’s influence over her intensifies.  She’s been feeding more frequently, using a dating app to find scumbags to torture and eat.  This has not gone without notice, as Black Betty and DollFace are called in separately to deal with her once and for all.

Zombie Tramp has been building to this for some time.  It’s been awesome to see this story grow and evolve over the past year or two.  Janey’s actions as of late make you wonder where she ends and the Kaiju Queen begins.  The murders are getting way more frequent, like she’s storing up energy for something big.  We get a brief glimpse of what that might be in this issue and it’s going to have some major repercussions for everyone involved.

DollFace’s guest appearance makes up a large chunk of Zombie Tramp #46.  This isn’t a bad thing, especially since she’s illustrated by Marco Maccagni, who does a brilliant job bringing this witch-in-a-sex-doll to life.  DollFace (aka Lila) picks up on Janey’s scent and goes in to eliminate her with some super powerful energy blasts…only to find out she’s been had.  All that’s left are a bunch of zombies, which make excellent cannon fodder.  

Maccagni’s artwork is full of intensity, which makes the battle scenes really pop off the page.  It’s like an episode of Dragon Ball Z with energy blasts flying every which way and a whole lot of screaming.  There is something so awesome about this innocent looking girl whipping her arms out as they transform into high-powered laser cannons. Valentina Pucci’s colors add to this, bringing some brightness to the otherwise drab abandoned lair full of death and decay.

That intensity extends to Janey too as we see her viciously torturing her victim who is pleading for his life.  Based on his limited dialogue, he may be innocent too, which makes this quite a bit darker.  Janey is basically treating him like a piñata, beating the ever-loving crap out of the poor guy until his brain flies right out of his skull.   

The inclusion of Black Betty is a nice touch.  It was only a matter of time before she crossed paths with the other characters in the Zombie Tramp universe.  Her involvement is minimal in this issue, but it has some major potential for the rest of the story arc and the buildup to the big issue #50.

Janey Belle has turned into a monster and it may take the combined forces of the other anti-heroes of the Zombie Tramp universe to stop her.  That is going to be one crazy matchup.  Until then, the wagons are circling and we’re in for a great show.  If this is what we’re getting when the Kaiju Queen is just knocking on the door, imagine what will happen when she busts it down.
