Aside from certain insect swarms it’s tough to think of anything in the natural world that behaves the way we tend to imagine zombies would behave. Predators might run in packs, but entire herds? The mob mentality of human rioters might be the closest thing, but even then they’re flipping cars and burning things, not eating people. Early zombie ranchers had to figure out something that was at once sort of in their experience and totally different from it, and the trial-and-error period of what worked and what didn’t no doubt had its share of fatalities.
THE KICKSTARTER CONTINUES. We’re getting close to our goal but haven’t hit it yet, and there are still plenty of rewards left! A number of you have indicated on our poll that you have no money to spare. You might even just be in a position where you have some money but no major credit card to your name, which Kickstarter does require in order to make a pledge. It’s okay. We want everyone to know that these constant reminders aren’t meant as a pressure tactic, we just don’t want to get to May 11th and find out someone who would’ve otherwise pledged either didn’t hear of it or heard of it and then just plain forgot. If you’re willing to spread the word to others who might be interested, we would love that, but in any case reading the comic here online remains 100% free.
