Exactly what it sounds like.

I’m just assuming everybody’s seen Arrested Development at this point.

And does every post-zombiepocalypse community have to have some kind of terrible secret? I certainly hope so. I wish every community had a terrible secret. It would make moving a lot more interesting.

If you live in Austin, TX please, please go buy a copy of our book from Rogues Gallery Comics & Games in Round Rock. It will make us look awesome if it sells out. And we need all the awesome we can get. Like, a booster shot of awesome directly in an ass cheek.

    This is some Twilight Zone type stuff, you guys.


  2. mordicai

    I…don’t get the reference? I mean, the TOPICAL one, of course I’ve seen Arrested Development!

    Mordicai – Do you mean you don’t get the Walking Dead reference/setup?


  5. Markus Seaberry

    I get the Walking Dead reference, I haven’t watched Arrested Development. Either way, interesting strip, guys.

    MORDECAI! You need to read Walking Dead. It’s the finest comic on the shelves!

    I read Walking Dead, AND watch Arrested Development, soooo I get both references! Whoo ! Hoo!
    And it’s funny as hell…

    I was hoping you guys were gonna be in ECCC, but I’m glad you had fun in the Mid-South… whatevah

    Aw. So I’m guessing things didn’t work out for Austin Books? Too bad Rogue’s Gallery could not be absolutely farther on the complete opposite side of town from where I live. btw, still dorking out about the AquaFreddie drawn in my copy. Made my daaaaaay!


  8. Quintronic Man

    Walking dead + Arrested development = Pure win! Now I’ll surely be friends with you again.


  9. guayec

    Yes! Rick should wear a hook just like Buster too!

    Guayec – Clearly there are layers upon layers and papers that could be written on all the similarities between AD and TWD. I mean, I haven’t watched AD, so I don’t know, but one can only assume. There’s zombies on AD, right?

    Kachi – We’re still working on the Austin Books thing (feel free to go ahead and start telling them they need to carry it), the guy who owns Rogues Gallery was just at the show and liked the book immediately and bought a bunch then and there. Take a picture of that Aqua-Freddie I drew you and send it to me so we can post it up here.

    Quintronic Man – Finally.


  12. LoyalV

    There are, er, were dozens of us!


  13. o0o

    Walking Dead movie coming, maybe i’ll audition… oh, I can just taste those meaty leading man parts in my mouth.


  14. guayec

    There’s zombies on AD, right?



  15. Jeff Pannell

    Do these effectively hide my thunder?


  16. chrishaley

    Note: This strip has been sold.


  17. Darren Calvert

    I think the key is finding a post-zombiepocalypse community with a terrible secret that you can live with. Like “Sure, they eat babies but they only eat babies who are jerks.”


  18. Chris

    I get both references. But the continuity error obviously ruins any humor. Rick SHAVED when he got to the new community. How am I supposed to laugh with that going on?

    p.s. I did actually laugh.


  19. chrishaley

    Darren – I can’t believe you are commenting on one of our comics. I am a huge fan of yours from a billion years ago in the Drawing Board days.


  20. Darren Calvert

    Thanks, man. I caught Benito Cereno’s tweet about the strip and recognized your name/work. I’ve seen a couple of the strips around the Web. Nice to see what you’ve been up to.
