Hey guys, sorry for the delay. Hope you're having a great week so far!

I wanted to interrupt a story about some of the crazy enlightenments that people have done with this message.. It just sort of makes it seem like people have mundane things going on.

Take care and have a great weekend everyone!

What's with the baby photo? Will this baby turn out to be a Three/Four and actually the spouse of one of these zombies?
Skrael (I'm the artist)
That's Baby Ruth! I'm surprised that James didn't tell that contest winners are featured in this one..

@neon5162 - Well, they noticed that there was an initial message, and they were unavailable when the message finished decoding ;)

@aok666 - Someone included a picture of his new daughter in the picture for June to reference, so she opted to put it in :) Maybe she'll make a cameo at some time as a zombie ;)

@Skrael - I might have been late putting it up as it was and rushed the author's note ;)
aok666 (Guest) edit delete reply
Hmmm... I think I know whose baby that is, but who's the other contest winner?

I didn't even tell them that they won this time (There were only two entries, and June had to ask permission to add the baby picture, so that was a giveaway) :)
aok666 (Guest) edit delete reply
I should have entered, shouldn't I? I never bothered because I assumed everyone would enter (and I look like a zombie anyway, right down to Two-style outfits).
Baby in photo is non-zombie I note. I'd love to see a zombie baby.

Wow you added about 20 pounds of muscle to me, I musta worked out during the Zpox.

As for Ruthy she gurgled, and made me a present which I will soon change.

Thanks!

Yeah, nice muscles! I gotta enter these contests.
Hmmm, Sully's the cowboy-hat zombie? Perhaps he is referring to events in "A Lousy Day"?
asheswillfall (Guest) edit delete reply
I wonder.... why is she (or some mystery person) pointing a gun at our lovely TOGM commercial actor?
Magravan edit delete reply

@aok666 - Yes, since that was probably the last one that I'll be able to do for a while :) June's finding the real people to be troublesome, so we're taking a break from it.

@T.Gatto - Given that you're a Phantom 3, I'd say you made out pretty damn good ;)

@WritingReese - Well that's perfect then, I'm glad you enjoyed it ;)

@T.Gatto - That's what matters!

@WritingReese - I don't know... Let's just say their life expectancy might not be great right about now ;)

@PhilC - Sully is indeed the cowboy hat zombie :) I was wondering if anyone would pick up on that :) (That's why that strip was called "Sullying something or other")

@asheswillfall - It is some mystery person... In retrospect, we should have had her either in the midst of falling or with a dart sticking out of something below her head :)
asheswillfall (Guest) edit delete reply
@Mag thanks for clearing that up :)

Who wrote the coding system? Some 2? It looks like a hangman game :D

Magravan
A hangman game that they eventually won!
Skrael (I'm the artist)
I wrote the code ;) That's why it looks like a simple word game...... :P

I just got back from a pretty good-sized gun show. I was expecting to see some Zombie Bullets and Zombie tactical guns etc. After all I have been reading that Zombie/apocalypse preppers are (at least in part) largely responsible for the Gun Boom in America.

I was not expecting to see legitimate business men, with real businesses, telling prospective customers "this is what I want for when the Zombies come".
I overheard at least 10 different people and dealers talking about zombies.

Does this mean that if werewolves suddenly gain in popularity we can expect to see a run on silver bullets "just in case"?

I find the whole thing entertaining, and just a bit un-nerving.
asheswillfall (Guest) edit delete reply
People have always been un-nerving. Just don't shoot me with any silver bullets if you hear howling :D The werewolves will eat zombies during the apocalypse. Save your bullets for the crab people from outer space.

The baby raises a question.. We know children were Enlightened. If a baby was turned early, would said baby become a 3 or 4? (Yeah I know you don't hear from me for months and then I ask stupid questions) :)

@T.Gatto - I'm assuming that those people are primarily joking about Zombies, and just using them as a metaphor...

The fact that businesses are using that schtick to sell wares doesn't surprise me though ;)

But then, people believe in a lot of things that evidence suggests they probably shouldn't, so who knows?

@asheswillfall - Exactly! And if we can make Werewolf Saddles, all the better!

@Fortunado1972 - A baby could theoretically be anything from a 1-4, depending on how early they were turned and how many brains they were able to gather. Unfortunately, the chances of them turning anyone else are fairly slim, and unlike RZ, they are unlikely to have someone who is willing to give them brains.

There are probably at least a few babies who played the helpless baby role, especially once they became Twos, and like Beth, they managed to benefit from the exceedingly good efforts of the people they infected, so it's not outside the realm of possibility that we see one someday. :)

tl;dr - Definitely possible but rare ;)
