It’s fun to think about the zombie apocalypse, you guys, it really is. It’s fun to imagine the world being thrown into turmoil by an outbreak of some mysterious disease. But let’s be honest: if there was such an outbreak, we’d squash it. Quickly.
Why? Because of all this zombie stuff we have now. Movies, games, TV shows, shirts. You’ve been WAITING PATIENTLY for your turn to live out the Night of the Living Dead, or Dawn of the Dead, or World War Z, or whatever…
Except it won’t go how it goes in those movies, because EVERYONE who’s not a zombie will also be out hunting zombies, so the whole thing will be a wrap in, like, a half-hour.
See, movies ruin everything.
Keep that in mind the next time your buddy has one of those “hold my beer” ideas and wants you to “just trust me, man, trust me.” If it seems so stupid that you can’t imagine a way out of it without an injury of some kind, trust your instincts.
HINGES is a fantasy webcomic about a doll named Orio and her troubling companion Bauble.
New to the city of Cobble, Orio must depend on help where ever she can find it, but her assigned familiar Bauble has other interests. And as the two explore the walls of their city, they find that they are not the only new arrivals.
In a place that runs like clockwork, it only takes a little disruption to upend a city.

The year: 1988. The place: Crestwood Mall in suburban St. Louis. The scene: crowded, as Saturday afternoon turns into Saturday night. In the crush of humanity, one bold voice stands out. A 14-year-old nerd skips energetically through the throng cackling about how he’s invisible, annoying the holy hell out of everyone within earshot. “I’m invisible! Ha ha! Nobody can see me! I’m invisible!” Only the green-sport-coated figure of a mall security guard can stop this shameless rampage of idiocy.
Which came first, the theory or the show?
