It may not surprise you to learn that I’m a big fan of apocalyptic fiction, and a fan of zombie fiction in particular. For me the thrill of an apocalypse is figuring out how you’re going to survive. If life gives you zombie lemons, you now need to figure out how you’re going to make that putrid zombie lemon-aide.
It may also not surprise you that I’m acquainted with The Walking Dead. I have a love-hate relationship with the show. Weekly zombie drama? check the love box. Characters that often act stupidly, bringing peril on themselves? check the hate box.
Let me give you an example or two of the stuff I hate. In TWD, we have a fictional universe with zombies that are attracted to any sort of noise. When the zombies are located in a dark abandoned building, they mostly sit around in the dark, waiting for someone to accidentally discover them.
What would you do before entering a dark unknown building in TWD?
