Before we get to the regular news, we’d like to introduce our newest contributor, Johnathon Brock. He’ll be handling most of the news duties and contributing other material as well. Johnathon, take it away: “Hello roamers and shamblers… My name is Johnathon Brock and I am a zombaholic. I’m the new guy and I’ll be bringing you the daily feed, tackling the up-to-the-minute news of the unyielding undead and providing the occasional review as well. I’m very happy to be here and glad for this opportunity to address such a vital matter of national importance as the inevitable zombie apocalypse. For everything not related to the world of the (un)living, you can check out my blog Fortune Pancakes, but for now, I’ll just say keep your wits sharp, your sword sharper, may your ammo never run low and good hunting!”
