There are those who complain that zombie-flavored stories are too prevalent, as if the use of the shuffling dead were in itself a genre, rather than props used to evoke a particular mood. For my part, I enjoyed the early installments of ‘Marvel Zombies’, especially the bits where undead Peter Parker laments having killed and eaten his family in the same tone he used to whine about working for J. Jonah Jameson, and have often thought that it would be interesting other hero-types in similar settings. How might Indiana Jones face a wave of revenants? Or George Costanza? Would Jack Skellington have an edge against a horde clamoring to eat flesh, or would become their leader and sic them on Wallace and Gromit?
The MS-QOTD (pronounced, as always, “misquoted”) believes that Talking Heads had a great point when they said, “Stop Making Sense”, asking: What fictional character (who doesn’t already live in a zombie story) would survive longest after the zombie apocalypse?
