Zombie Website of the MonthJune 20th, 2012 |
I’m doing another Zombie Website of the Month post. Why another so soon? Because I have found a webcomic that is entertaining, original, and all about zombies.
The Other Grey Meat is about the zombies who have survived the apocalypse. If that sounds strange to you , yea your right. It turns out that zombies aren’t the mindless beasts we think they are. We’ll, they don’t have a brain, so that kind of makes them mindless. The Other Grey Meat brings an interesting twist to the well played zombie stick. The zombies might start out as hungry brain devouring creatures, but the more real human brains they eat, the more they gain intelligence. The problem with this is, that there is only so many brains to go around. Most of the populous of zombies are the mindless killing machines you have come to know because there simply was not enough brains to go around. The lucky ones were able to gain intelligence enough to get productive jobs.
There are no humans left. Or at least that’s what the zombies believe. There is actually one human left, and he can’t remember his name. So he is called John. The predicament of John is an interesting one. All around him are zombies who would eat his brains, if they knew he had them. No one knows what John is, save the ever so sexy zombie limb replacement technician known as Beth. Beth found John when he woke up in his clinic one day. It took some “creative convincing” to show Beth that he was indeed still human and that his leg should not be lopped off for a replacement. John is safe from Beth because of her “vegan” like attitude toward brains.
Now what makes this interesting is that as the last human left on earth, if an accident should happen and any other zombie looking to up their status in society by chomping on another fresh brain, John would indeed wake up as a level 1 zombie. However with no other supply of grey matter around, he would be stuck as a dangerous, mindless level 1 for the rest of his unlife.
Tie all this in with a corrupt government system run by the smartest zombie on the earth, and an army of not so smart zombies trying to take down his reign, and an adorable little dork of a zombie child somehow always in the center of trouble wither he is causing it or not, you have a compelling drama. Top it all off with some excellent character writing and good artwork, and I’m surprised this comic isn’t already at the top of a lot of people’s list.
So why is it called The Other Grey Meat? Well you’ll just have to read to figure that one out. Trust me, until our writer is back in the swing of things, this one will be a good one to tide you over. Check it out at greymeat.com
