Second strip's up!

Or is soon to be, since I'm posting this before the hour where the strip actually comes up. If it's not up now, it should be up in a few hours!

For those of you who might be interested, I'm right where I want to be - bunch a strips written in advance, bunch of strips realized in advance. Shouldn't mess up my schedule.

What I had not anticipated, is that it takes forever for you guys to actually get to see the stuff. Dang, I can't wait!

And I can't wait to get enough stuff in there to start really working on getting some people here to read it!

Anyway... since I'm always trying to link some new zombie material with each post, I'll share a cool resource I found that might give some ideas on how to define zombies: The Monstrous Zombies page. It's neat.

What they suggest is this:

A zombie is a dead person that is brought back to life through a curse (voodoo, necromancy) or a mutation and has recovered some vital functions like movement.

Sounds reasonable to me.

Though they argue that the following are not to be considered zombies:

  • A mummy
  • A ghoul
  • A frankenstein-like monster

With what I tend to disagree, but tend to nod in favor of their arguments.

I still consider most mummies to be some kind of "super zombies". I can understand and agree to their argumenation of ghouls - though the "ghouls" of Night Of The Living Dead (1968) are zombies. I can also understand their argument about the frankenmonsters.

But I wouldn't dismiss their zombieness right out of hand.

Okay, so that's for the zombie link - there's alot of other neat stuff about zombies in there...

On the up and coming this week: our first Zombie Movie Review by Marianne, which I'll introduce when the timing's perfect.

And I need to find Zombie-related places that'll link to here! We needs them links! We wants traffic, my precioussss!

See you around!
