The Walking Dead

I’ve come her to chew gum and kill zombies. And i’m all out of gum…

First off i’d like to set the record straight and declare that whilst I like zombies and zombie related stories they are probably my second favourite apocalyptic scenario. First place undoubtedly goes to the Triffids (and the scenario where most of the population are blind otherwise they’d be pretty easy to deal with!). And third place would go to the supremely vicious Haters (from David Moody‘s Hater trilogy – if you haven’t read it I’d give it a go before they turn it into a less-than-satisfying Hollywood film). Now that I’ve cleared that up I can move on with today’s post.

Walking Dead – the comic original

I have read all the Walking Dead comics and declare them good. Definitely worth a read. I have also recently been watching the TV series and whilst not as good as the comics I am thoroughly enjoying that too. This has undoubtedly led to some daydream scenario’s where I roam the earth along with a rag tag bunch of survivors meting out vengeance to the hordes of soulless zombies with my trusty double barrelled shotgun. And rather than just let this thought languish in my head as most people would I have decided to realise it (although I haven’t gone the whole hog and actually released some kind of zombie virus). I have turned this vision into a picture of me toting said trusty shotgun whilst looking tough and searching for more zombies to execute. I’m sure all my practice on Call of Duty will go a long way when the day comes…

I probably shouldn’t be so self-indulgent with my pictures but it’s my birthday soon so i’ll let it slide this time.
