Too Many Zombies Coming to an End

Almost a year ago, Jay – the creator of Too Many Zombies, picked himself up an iPod Touch and upon playing with it, he found himself making zombies. Not one or two zombies. But lots of them. Somewhere along the line, the idea blossomed into a full website whereby he posted a zombie a day with accompanying story. With zombie number 335 being posted this morning, Jay is only thirty zombies short of completing his project which begs the question … will there be more zombies or have the endless hordes come to an end? Here’s the announcement of the site over at allthingzombie.com: … Read entire article »

Pride, Predjudice, and Zombies — The Graphic Novel

Every day, there appears to be news item about the breakout hit Pride, Prejudice, and Zombies. First there was the announcement of a film, starring Natalie Portman. Soon, we have the prequel Dawn of the Dreaduls, hitting stores in only a couple of weeks (review coming shortly). And now, we have a graphic novel based off the book. Zombies are truly everywhere these days. I will say, zombies and comics go together like peanut butter and chocolate, so I am really looking forward to the release of this project. Also, the comic format allows the (re)writer to tone down a lot of the original Jane Austen prose which might raise some eyebrows from the literary crowd, but will certainly be a relief to the zombie loving one. … Read entire article »

Zombie Ranch Going Strong

Even when the world is claimed by the legions of the dead, life still must move onwards. In fact, when it does move on, the living sometime need to take the dead with them. Such is the case with Zombie Ranch. We’ve seen these types of situations before in movies like Fido and American Zombie, but the twist in this tale is that the zombies who reside on this ranch are nothing but livestock. Captured for both their blood and rodeo work, Zombie Ranch follows the ranchers in their day to day lives from the perspective of a reality television show. When zombies are bought they are both tagged and branded. The branding helps for the eyeball recognition, while the tagging prevents any escapes a … Read entire article »
