Zombie Cliche Lookout: Contingencies
Sometimes, it’s helpful to have Plans B, C, and D all mapped out before you even think about trying Plan A. Other times, even contemplating the failure of Plan A can set you up for disaster. In those cases, it just might be appropriate to go ahead, and figure out what to do next if/when things go sideways. And when the plan involvew keeping someone’s family safe, you can bet that they’re not super interested in hearing about contingencies and backup plans. They really want things to get sorted out correctly the first time rather than having everyone turned into Grade A zombie chow while you and the other survivors execute your brilliant escape plan. And can you blame them?
About this Episode:
Poor Ted is having a really rough time here. All he wants to do is make sure his family is safe, but he’s getting nothing but stalling and cryptic talk from his friends. I feel bad for the guy. Heck, he’s not even in focus in the last panel (that’s on purpose by the way, I assure you).
I will likely not be able to respond to comments on Monday’s episode until Tuesday or so, since I’ll be on the road. I’m headed to Chicago, since the wife has a court case there and I decided to tag along because Chicago is cool. Apologies in advance.
Discussion Question: Favorite Non-Zombie Genre
Other than zombies, what is everyone favorite genre (movies, books, games, etc.), and is there any sort of cross-over potential there? For instance, I’m a big fan of both gangster flicks and westerns. There’s a lot of cross-over potential for both of these, but specifically westerns. Look no further than the add on to Red Dead Redemption, Undead Nightmare. Cowboys versus zombies (and chupacapras, and bigfeet, etc), it’s a thing of beauty.
