Zombies, Not Just Mindless Brain-Eaters

Welcome to zombie week! I hope it’s been fun for you and no un-dead have wandered out of a cornfield to eat you for dinner. If you’re reading this, I guess you’re safe, but stay vigilant!

I have to admit that I’m not a huge zombie fan…ghosts and demons are more my jimmie-jam. Watching the un-dead saunter along the street hoping to catch and eat people never thrilled me.

A zombie who, well eats brains to live, but helps solve murders all while trying to live her life… or un-life?… while her co-worker searches for a cure. I love this show… and have been told of the iZombie comics, go check them out here, which look pretty cool. Thanks, Brian.

And now I have purchased my very own copy of…

Lipstick & Zombies

BECAUSE YOU CAN BUY IT NOW!!!!!!! HERE! I’m excited to read!

It’s always good to keep an open mind when traversing this place we call life. Look at all the fabulousness I might have missed out on if I had kept to my limited view of zombies. Missing all the fun would be the real horror.
