Poor bby >: Between this and a scene coming up in the next chapter, I can't help but feel bad for these things instead of the people. I'm a crap writer 8D

I just feel bad for everyone. 8( But... in a way I think writers should feel that way because if you don't feel pain on both sides that makes it a really biased sort of writing. At least that's the way I look at it. And why I can't watch most zombie movies.

But anyway, panel 3 hits just the right note - when everything feels slowed down, and sounds like static and is kind of like a dream. Well, more like a nightmare. And then it snaps back to action again.

@Oly-RRR: That's a good point! And speaking of zombie movies, I think that's why Romero's are the best - the zombies in those are treated with as much sympathy as the living people. Most others miss the point and just want guilt-free murder fodder.

@eishiya: Ooh, I need to check those out! I was mostly thinking of Paranorman and BBC's In The Flesh (a show, not a movie, but pretty much told from the zombie point of view).

@Oly-RRR: I recommend them! The Romero films use zombies as metaphors for different social issues in each film. Night is about prejudice (and hate crimes in particular), Dawn is about consumerism, Day is basically "well shit, they're trying to survive just like we are", and Land is about social class. They all still have a fair bit of zombie-murder that most of the characters don't feel bad about, but they don't glamorize it the way most other zombie films do. I want to say that the Romero films are too overt about the social commentary (it's not subtle at alllll), but with how many people inspired by them seem to miss the point, I guess they're not :|

...I have watched too many zombie movies too many times.

Hope he got his rabies shot... that sounds weird... like rabies are things you can shoot instead of receiving a shot to prevent rabies
