If the Internet has taught us anything, it’s that the zombie apocalypse is looming, and it’s coming soon. In order to protect ourselves from the zombies’ grumbling stomachs, it makes sense to prepare by studying a handbook to the nethermost depths of the zombie’s psyche. Zombies According to Savage Chickens is not that guide; however, this e-book original collection of comics certainly makes for a more amusing read, which, after all, is what truly matters. Doug Savage, the cartoonist who has maintained the hilarious Savage Chickens web comic blog since 2005 by uploading sticky notes illustrated with the antics of his clever cast of characters, has imagined another memorable type of Savage Chicken: the Zombie Chickens.
Zombies have one thing on their minds: BRAINS. But that doesn't necessarily mean that they run amuck all day looking for the next lucky person in the land-of-the-living to provide lunch. How might a zombie interact at an art auction, wedding, or job interview? What is their ideal Valentine’s Day gift, and how would a zombie Shakespeare have taken his plays to the Globe? These are exactly the questions—the totally relevant questions—about the imminent zombie takeover that only Mr. Savage has the guts (and the brains) to tackle. After all, why study up on the zombie apocalypse when you can laugh at the expense of the undead instead?
