Zombie Book Review: End Time

Reading through End Time, I began to wonder whether the author, Daniel Greene, happened to be a fan of George R.R. Martin.

Hiatus Update

Hey everyone, I thought I’d check in and let everyone know how things are going. Unfortunately, I don’t have great news here. I am still very much in the weeds, and am going to need some time to get back on track. Sadly, that means no April Fool’s comic this year. I will still be… Read more »
