This episode brings up some questions

Was Laura's mom turned into a zombie and if so was the mentioned infection spread by bite or something else? Also this episode and the web site imply that Dr. Shroud is/was married; what happened to his wife ? Did she die, did the marriage fall apart after Wendy was kidnapped or am I way off in thinking he doesn't live with her? There are certain questions about Necropolis that need to be expanded on. Also is it me or was it a bit dark outside for 5pm? Questions and maybe some gripes about the characters' movements and facial expressions aside there is something good about this series so I hope I didn't come off as discouraging or overly rude. Keep up the good work.

No, this is all encouraging stuff! I love when people have questions, especially good ones like yours, so thanks. First off, I should say that most questions will be answered in the live action feature film, but I will do my best to explain here. The animated stories are intended to be self contained brief snapshots in the life of Dr. Shroud, reserving chronological plotlines and subplots for other mediums (aforementioned film, comics, etc.).

That said, here you go:

"Was Laura's mom turned into a zombie and if so was the mentioned infection spread by bite or something else? "

She was infected by a bite from the rampant vampire infection in Necropolis.

"Also this episode and the web site imply that Dr. Shroud is/was married; what happened to his wife ? "

Married, currently separated. She's in the feature script.

"There are certain questions about Necropolis that need to be expanded on. Also is it me or was it a bit dark outside for 5pm?"

Necropolis will be explained eventually. It's always dark at 5PM in Necropolis. Think of it as perpetually Fall.

Making characters move better nowadays. :)

Thanks,
Rob

Fantastic

Amazing style and graphics. I didn't see the first one but now I know I have too since I liked this one so much. The amount of work you put into this is clearly evident in the product. Can't wait for the conclusion episode.

Hmm

I really loved the graphics and the style, although some of the animation lacked "easing" which would have gave it much more realism.
The story was quite slow and I couldn't really get into it, but obviously I haven't seen all the series so I can't judge fairly.
I voted teh 4.
Nice Job, I'll be watching your other submissions. :)

very good.

im fan of dr.shroud and this was really good but why there is always a happy music when dr.shroud has a nghtmare??


robfeldman responds:

If I used sad or dramatic music, I think it would be too cliche. The upbeat music is intended to be total camp.

my kind of doctor :D

Officer Finch rulez! :D

But it's disturbing how similiar your doctor is to the Half Life one. You could have used a little more fantasy than just his bad ass expression in the face all the time. And find a smoother way for the characters to walk.
But overall it's an interesting story that makes ya wanna watch the whole bit. And that is more important than graphics in my opinion!

I'll wait for the last part with excitement :D
