This zine’s history/mission statement is: “When we weren’t having panic attacks (and even when we were) we thought about zombies a lot. This is the result.” I’ve never spent much time thinking about zombies because I’m a big wus. I still can’t even watch The Exorcist.
OK, that’s not a zombie movie, but it’s fecking scary! Anyway, this issue has less reviews (of zombie books and zombie movies) and more columns (and more ghosts) than issue #1. To show you how much of a wuss I am: while reading a piece in this zine about one of the editor’s visits to the Stanley Hotel - the hotel that inspired Stephen King to write The Shining — a coat fell off the coat rack across the room and I nearly jumped through the ceiling. I then proceeded to put down the zine and not pick it up again for two days. Good stuff! (Posted on 8/12/12)
