Zombie Cliche Lookout: All Alone
Surviving a zombie outbreak is tough enough with a group of people who are watching your back and picking up your slack. When you find yourself all along, the stakes get raised several orders of magnitude. When you’re with a group, you get the luxury of divvying responsibilities. You have some people who are naturally better at things, and make the group stronger and more efficient. At night, you can set watches so everyone has a fair amount of sleep. Going it alone, you reap none of these benefits.
About this Episode:
In the third panel, I wanted to make it look like Brent was all alone, one tiny man in a big world. Unfortunately, my set here is pretty tiny, so I don’t think it quite came out the way I had pictured in my head. But still, now you know where I was going with it, and that’s just as good. Right? Right.
Discussion Question: The Footwear Question
And once again I’m tapping into your discussion question suggestions. This time, we’re talking shoes. The original question was about your preferred footwear for the zombie apocalypse, but I’d like to expand it a bit. So not only do I want to hear about what you’d prefer to wear in a survival situation, but I also want to know how close that matches up to what you wear day-to-day. So if you prefer steel toed boots for kicking in zombie skulls, but walk around in flip-flops every day, what’s your plan when the shit hits the fan?
I usually wear either work boots or hiking boots, which is exactly what I’d want in a zombie survival situation. I’ve got a bad ankle, so I appreciate the extra support. They’re also durable and comfortable, which are two huge pluses for me.
