Alright, I have to put it out there.  Who else is preparing for a zombie apocalypse?  I've got a kukri machete for some head chopping action once I'm out of ammo, handsets, flashlights galore, survival gear/supplies, and I'm still shopping for a good shotgun.  I'm also working on a zombie screenplay (heaven knows I've seen plenty of bad zombie movies and it wouldn't hurt to attempt one myself).  One thing I hate about where I live is that I know that I probably wouldn't last too long if a zombie epidemic broke out.

Favorite zombie movies are Dead Alive, 28 days/weeks, and the Dawn of the Dead remake (I love the classic one too, but not as intensely).

How long do you think you'd last?  I'd reckon 3 days to a week for myself (I imagine dying trying to protect my wife and kids even though I know they'd only die next).

I have all the shit you have except no screenplay, but I do have a shotgun, and a few other guns in the house.  And I live 2 minutes from the military base.  I think once the shit was confirmed I'd probably kill my neighbors because they suck and take their shit too.  My roommate and I would probably last awhile once we got on the base.  House is ground level with a big sliding glass door so it's guaranteed we leave.    But the area I live in isn't heavily populated.  Pretty sure I could arm up and actually walk to the base if it came to it.  But we'd probably take my truck and his motorcycle as his makes WAY more sense than mine.   Once I got to the unit, we'd probably open up the arms room and mount .50's on the roof and set up some patrols and a perimeter within the base.  Rob the chow hall of all canned goods and load up on MREs.

Me and my wife would be fine here for a few days, but I'd be more inclined to take a backroad to Jackson, Louisiana where my brother lives. He's got a ton of guns, a proper stash of hurricane food, plus he'd be deputized since he's a state security worker. Both of us are really good shots, but then again, so is every dude in Jackson that hasn't accidentally killed themselves already.
I'm on call for our state Environmental Protection/DHS service, so we'd probably camp in one of the prisons or state mental hospitals (which is like a prison/hospital in terms of fortification) and chill. Food forever, low population, lots of arms, meds, and buildings that can be sectioned off in case of an outbreak inside. 

Won't be heading to the infamous Angola, though. Dixon Correctional, Feliciana Forensic and East Louisiana State Hospital would be the places to go.

COME TO JACKSON WE ARE STILL ALIVE

Anyway, for HATE and Watson here's some of the art (sorry for the wait)...
Cover:

Each chapter starts off with the geographical location and date:

Art sample (from towards the beginning of a chapter, no spoilers here):

Another art sample:


There aren't many words, but it's cool seeing the last part of Survival Guide get this treatment. It'll only take you 10 minutes to get through it, but it's pretty fucking rad. Better for those that read the book already though... this is more of a suppliment than a stand-alone piece. Art was consistent and I thought it looked good... the zombies especially.

PS- this was an unused graphic I did before I knew that True Love was a scam:

Excellent looking stuff man.  Thanks a lot!.  Oh and when the shit goes down, we can establish a route between Polk and Hammond.  We'll just have to avoid the Rouge.

so today was zombie walk day. all these people get together and walk around my city dressed as zombies while being annoying. they always end up at the skatepark so that's where i see them. i saw two guys dressed up as the guys from icp. one even had a weed medallion

zombie survival wise, i think im pretty fucked in singapore...  the only people who have access to firearms are the police and military, so we are going to to have to go melee....  my family probably wont survive long, we dont stock up much food...  i would probably stay in my room and jack off till my laptop ran dry, then i would jump out of my 7th floor window...  if you cant beat them, join them...

Fuck, no doubt about that one. I work in BR and I avoid it on the weekends. I love BR, but traffic is retarded. Before Katrina, I could make it from my house to a parking spot at work in 45 minutes flat, now it takes two hours... sometimes longer on the way home.

...just in case I'm at work when the zombiepocolypse eventually happens, see if you can get any homies to pick me up off the roof of the Claiborne building. I can repay in porn.

In all honesty, sorry rocklobster, but I think Singapore is too densely populated for you to survive. you should probably focus on learning how to fly a helicopter and find out where to get one. Your only chance for survival is becoming really good at Mirrors edge and Left 4 dead on Xbox 360. Combine the two and find yourself a rooftop singapore helicopter and gtfo.

As for myself, i can't really say right now what I would do. Weapons are hard to come by, and I don't even possess a leather bodysuit(as suggested by Beer Keg in the 2012 zombocalypse thread) yet.
Before reading the Zombie Survival guide I was still convinced I might make it to the northern sea to fortify one of the stilted houses there. The tides would do all the work for you essentially and grant you safety for a few months maybe. But that seems more and more unlikely, it's a good 1000 kilometers from here to there, so I might be better off finding something in the Alps....

And no, i wouldn't fuck the hot zombie. Maybe from behind while I split her skull with a battle axe, but that's really the only way I could imagine it.

Driving today with my girlfriend, we saw an old chap who clearly had one wooden leg and the other one was a tad iffy to boot, resulting in an uncomfortable looking lurching gait. A split second after seeing this she spurted out "zombie!!", then sniggered like a child. Then confessed to feeling guilty.

As luck should have it, we have a small airfield right on the base and one of the platoons in my company works down there.  It would be too easy to come scoop you and some homies up.  Then we can post up Dawn Of The Dead style with some beer and pick them off one by one.

Closest building to post up is the hospital I work at which is a brisk 10 minute walk.  The structure sucks since there's way too much glass on the 1st floor, a bridge into the 3rd floor from a parking lot, and it's only 7 stories.  There is a helipad, but no helo permanently parked there.  The submarine base which would be the best option is a 20 minute drive with nothing but woods (or at least too much of it) in between.  I could see chancing that excursion only to be turned around.  The other base 15 minutes away looks too easy to penetrate, or at least that's how it looks with the civilian contracted security posted at the gate.  Yeah, it's not too promising.  On a separate note, just think how many obese people would be some of the first to die.

I think I'd do okay in a zombie apocalypse. No guns and all that shit (because I live in Canada), but I live in the prairies, and if you can make it outside of the city limits, it's VERY sparsely populated. If you can get out of the city alive (which I am sure I could in the opening hours of an outbreak), I'm sure I could find a little farm or something that I could fortify. It wouldn't be necessary to build a fortress because you'd probably get so few zombies roaming out there you could pick them off as they come along. I'd try and find something small and unassuming where me and a group of homies could make our stand rather than a finding like a school or something and try making it into a fortress. As we all should have learned from various zombie material, if you find a place too good, eventually you're gonna run into a group of crazies who think your place is too good also and will take it from you.

Also I think a good line of defense would be to find somewhere that is not very accessible by humans so that there is no way zombies can make it to you. Like in a mountainous area where you could set up in a cave or on the edge of a cliff at a steep climb. That way the zombies have no way of climbing to get you. And if you are far enough into the forest, you are gonna get very few zombies even making it to your area. Problem with that is you are so far away from any form of supplies you either have to stock up like crazy first or be good at living off the land.

Another strategy if you can handle it is to head somewhere where half the year it's really cold. (That's why a small farm in Saskatchewan would be good.) Then in the winter time when the zombies slow down and for sure would freeze completely, that's when you bundle up and do most of your searching for food and supplies. Also you could do outward sweeps of your area, killing zombies that are too slow to attack you or are frozen solid. This way when spring hits, you have a really good buffer zone where you know there are little to no zombies around. Word.

layzieyez: a regular medical hospital? Prolly should avoid that man... regular hospitals will more than likely be the fist to get overrun with those fuckers before they realize what's going on.

Hate: you know it brotha! Zombiepocolypse has a great possibility of providing some good times. I mean, aside from the human devastation and all.

I'm glad to see skaters taking a stance on this... I figure it'll be skaters, the military, and maybe some separatist militias left over. Two out of three ain't bad!

I know man, I totally think there would be some killer good times.  Once you get over the whole idea of what is going on and realizing that currency is pointless, and you have no responsibliities outside of you and those around you, you basically have nothing BUT good times.

If you had been in a bar while saying this, and I were a Leather trenchcoat wearing, aged Zombie Hunter, I'd totally stand up from my place at the sparsely lighted end of the bar and walk up to you and say that that's dead people talk.
Technically you could shoot all the single Zombies that enter your perimeter, but that would mean you'd have to stand guard 24/7. (Also you said you don't have a gun.) If one would still make it into your perimeter, and take notice of you, he would probably start to moan and thus attract all other zombies in the area.
The Zombie survival guide tells us that zombies can hear and smell way better than we do, so the odds that they locate you at night, before you manage to kill them with a pitchfork, hairspray&lighter or javelin are pretty low. I might believe you that you could hide there for a good 14 days (amount of days until rage zombies would slowly starve away), but since you said you "preferred" the good old fashioned "relentless" zombie, you're in for a long stand off. You might as well just drive to the cottage to grab a piece of rope and end it right there where the scenery is nicer.


Personally I'd prefer my outbreaks with rage zombies, just because it'd be over quicker, so once I eventually make it to my hiding point and fortify it, it'd only be a matter of surviving for a few weeks before I could go on my first eradication missions.

It's a navy hospital, but I still wouldn't hole up in there.  I would have liked my chances in San Diego better just because of Naval Amphibious Base Coronado.  S.E.A.L.s just make me feel more safe (until they become the infected).

all of this zombie talk has gotten me quite hyped, need to watch some epic zombie movies, and of course buy the survival guide. I think all the zombies in Vancouver would be too nice to kill anyone, theyd be too environmentally conservative and polite, id probably get by with some golf clubs, this however coming from someone who hasnt read the guide, fuck i need to regroup

can zombies swim? my guess is no, but they could probably flail around until they reach shore. this would make an island escape very tricky, as you would have to probably plan it for an island in salt water. this way the bleeding/decaying zombies would become shark treats.

Sparsely populated areas would be good, but what if Walking Dead type roaming hordes existed? Picking them off one by one wouldn't quite work.

In the Max Brooks' mythos, they don't swim, but they walk around the bottom of the ocean, occasionally coming up on shore unexpectedly.

Also, they don't bloat up and rot the same way a regular corpse does, the virus that causes them to zombify turns their liquids and tissue toxic to pretty much every living thing... from dogs to microbes.
