About this Episode:
I love these power outage scenes. The darkness really helps cover up some of my bad photography. I need to start writing more scenes at night.

Zombie Cliché Lookout:
In any survival situation you will have a hierarchy of survivors. Often, when the survivors were already acquainted prior to the disaster, this hierarchy is inherited. While a survival situation can allow natural leaders to come to the fore, it will also demand that the weak be marginalized.

  1. you may have heard it already, but i have a theme song for your webcomic; Re: Your Brains by Jonathan Coulton

    • I had to look that one up, but it was well worth it. Hilarious song, thade, thanks for the head’s up.

      By the way, here’s a link Re: Your Brains. I’m not so sure about the machinima video, but the song is outstanding.

      • You’ve never heard it before? Wow! I tried that out for a Halloween treat on my English 10 students two years back – they, characteristically, were not impressed.

        I love that song. Not as zombified, but with a perfect title, is “Eat my Brain” by Odds: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RZFPiG8dEBk

      • Nope, I sure hadn’t. The description says it’s in Left 4 Dead 2 as well, which I’ve played more than a few times but never heard/noticed.

      • In a level (I think it’s the level were you start of on a boat that drops you off, Its the level with lots of guitars and frying pans) in a cafe there is a 70s style jukebox if you activate it it starts to play re: your brains. My freind told me about it

      • Huh, I’ve never noticed it, but I often play with the sounds off. I’ll have to keep a lookout for that.

  2. “The darkness really helps cover up some of my bad photography”. thats not bad. your photography is above adequete(unlike my spelling).then again, compared to adventures in setland, my comic anything is good photography.i wouldnt look at it.really, dont. this aint reverse pshycology, your photography is that good and mine is that bad.

    • Thanks replica! I’ve yet to be satisfied with my photography. It seems like there’s always some little thing that bugs me: off lighting, too-shallow depth of field, etc. We’re always our own harshest critics.

      I have read through Adventures in Setland. Are you planning to continue it anytime soon?

  3. Johnathon Coulton, Still Alive. Easily edited for the end of the world. Good luck singing it. With the small number of breathing pauses, only a MACHINE could actually sing it.
