It’s been a few years since the zombie craze engulfed… well, pretty much everything.  Even though modern zombie stories pretty much date back to 1968 and George Romero’s seminal ‘Night of the Living Dead’, the last few years have accelerated it exponentially, with ‘DCeased’, ‘Marvel Zombies’ and even ‘Afterlife With Archie’ successfully pulling off undead tales in universes that shouldn’t rightfully be able to support such tales.  It begs the important question of what fictional worlds haven’t yet done the living dead.  Cannonball Run?  Fibber McGee and Molly?  Muppet Babies?  The mind reels, leading us to today’s decomposing query…

The MS-QOTD (pronounced, as always, “misquoted”) has learned to lean into the skid, and so “none of them” is not a valid answer, asking: What property, title or universe should be next in line for a “zombies” story?

Once upon a time, there was a young nerd from the Midwest, who loved Matter-Eater Lad and the McKenzie Brothers... If pop culture were a maze, Matthew would be the Minotaur at its center. Were it a mall, he'd be the Food Court. Were it a parking lot, he’d be the distant Cart Corral where the weird kids gather to smoke, but that’s not important right now... Matthew enjoys body surfing (so long as the bodies are fresh), writing in the third person, and dark-eyed women. Amongst his weaponry are such diverse elements as: Fear! Surprise! Ruthless efficiency! An almost fanatical devotion to pop culture! And a nice red uniform.

  1. Let’s do Starship Stroopers but so that soldiers are actually zombies, made by earth government because none in their right mind would otherwise enlist to fight in their meaningless wars.
