Cyanide and Happiness Addresses Zombie-Living Romatic Relationships

Cyanide and Happiness, a daily webcomic
Cyanide & Happiness @ Explosm.net

I’ll admit to being amused quite a bit by this particular comic, and additionally pleased to see more sequential artists dealing with the controversial issue of Zombie-Living person romance. (The topic is also touched upon in Dead Eyes Open, a recent ZRC favorite)

The Zombie character isn’t the most appealing sort, but he definitely is a *character*, contra opinions discussed last night here on the blog, and he isn’t playing to type, either. The Zombie ‘jerk’ character isn’t completely unprecedented; Re: Your Brains by Jonathon Coulton featured one, but forced him into using his comedic persona to pursue, yes, the devouring of tasty brains (stereotypical behavior anyone?)

Here, the Zombie boyfriend isn’t out to crack open a skull. He’s just socially inappropriate in front of his girlfriend’s family, a common relationship humor trope. Believe me, on balance, that’s a big step up from the average depiction of the Differently Animated and their interactions with Living individuals.

Kudos to Cyanide and Happiness for resisting the cheap shots that pass for most humor involving Zombies and bringing us something original to chuckle over today.
