Short explanation: Left 4 Dead is a video game where four survivors must work together to confront the zombie apocalypse. I think that’s all the information necessary to understand the comic.
When Chris sent me this strip, I grew a little concerned that he was making fun of me.
I own a genuine replica Master Sword from the Legend of Zelda: Link’s Awakening. It even has a close approximation of my video game sensei Shigeru Miyamoto-chan’s signature on the hilt. Of course, Chris wouldn’t know this because my mom hid it from me after I used it to do an “honor cutting” on my eight year old cousin last Christmas. My wrath is spared, Chris. This time.
What really gets me is him making fun of my old, easily swarm-able wooden door. The poor door has been through tough times, so for Chris to draw it with the tensile strength of Strom Thurmond upsets me on a level usually reserved for any time in a movie where a dog dies.
Making fun of me is fine, Chris. I’ve come to expect it. I can still keep my chin at a noble altitude. But please, next time, leave my sword and my door out of it.
