Greetings undead lovers! I’m back from a weekend camping trip on an island that was not full of zombies and I’m ready to bring you some great news.

In the mood to kill yet even more time at work on the company internet? If so, you should check out The Last Stand – Union City, a browser based side scrolling action adventure zombie survival game that’s not too shabby. (g-hacks)

Uwe Boll, the man who brought us every good horrible movie from the last decade, is back on the case and producing Zombie Massacre with Marco Ristori and Luca Boni who brought us Eaters not too long ago. It’s based on a 1998 game of the same name that no one played but seems like a good premise. (Worst Previews)

Neal, one of the guys over at Fancy Dress Outfitters who sent us that cool zombie garden shed survival infographic earlier in the year, sent us the latest thing they’ve whipped up, a nice Halloween zombie guide supporting free range zombie death that’s just as informative.

Now because I know you all had a long weekend (well most of you anyway) I’ve put together some good videos to help you unwind after a boring day back at the office. They’re all after the break.

Okay, bear with me zombie fans because there’s a lot of news today, especially about our favorite new series The Walking Dead, which took the world by storm last night!

There’s also a host of great news about the latest in zombie video games.

Here’s the info on the zombie walks you may or may not have been a part of this past weekend.

Zombies are funny: comics collection

Posted by Cory Casciato On April - 14 - 2010


Zombies are a powerful symbol of existential horror but they’re also good for a few laughs now and then. I’ve posted a few zombie comics in the past (check the Whimsy category if you want to catch up) but it’s been a while, so here are a few I’ve found amusing in the relatively recent past. Enjoy, and be sure to share any favorites of your own in the comments. (P.S. Anyone know the original author of that comic above? I can’t quite read it on the file).

The American Quarantine was a shot-for-shot remake of the Spanish REC. Despite this, the sequel Quarantine 2 will have nothing to do with REC 2.

Godzilla and an alien face the zombie apocalypse

Posted by Cory Casciato On September - 24 - 2009

godzillaandalienVSzombies

Godzilla doesn’t really remember what it was like before the zombies came.

Occasionally, he will get a flash of memory, like the smell of juniper, or the sound of children in a swimming pool.

But it fades once the next bullet is fired.

Memory is a luxury.

The zombies come.

What can I possibly add to that? Nothing, that’s what. But I’ll tell you this: I wasted a good two hours on this guy’s Tumbr site, I am your Canadian Boyfriend, and I promise you you’ll see more of his stuff here at some point. You can also find this excellent cartoon in its original context here.

You can see this comic here and lots of others at the myapokalips.com main page.
