Robert Kirkman Finds New Way to Cash-In On Hating Zombies

Who hates Zombies most in the world? That’s a good question, certainly. Some might say George Romero, but Mr. Romero would disagree; he usually says he’s on the Zombie side in his films, and he *did* make Creepshow, with Zombies of Justice.

Others might say Max Brooks, and it’s obviously true that Mr. Brooks is scared half out of his gourd by the Differently Animated.

I tend to think the best candidate, however, is ‘The Walking Dead’ creator Robert Kirkman, who is always jumping into new, groundbreaking, monstrously offensive side projects to defame Zombies.


So I wasn’t completely surprised to see that he’s getting into the rapidly growing Zombie Apocalypse simulation racket:

The Walking Dead Escape: San Diego is a new obstacle course at Petco Park that will run during this year’s Comic-Con, in conjunction with the release of issue #100 of the Eisner Award-winning The Walking Dead comic series.

“Our fans have been reading about it, watching it, and now they get to live it with The Walking Dead: Escape,” series creator Robert Kirkman said in a statement. “We are literally transforming Petco Park into the early days of society’s collapse and San Diego is just the first city to fall.”

Come on, Mr. Kirkman. With every major wave of immigration there’s been *some*, frankly, hateful and often unhinged voice yelling at the top of their lungs that the End is Nigh.

Sometimes it’s not even immigration per se, but a cultural product. Music, videogames.. comic books.

Thus today’s boogeyman status has sadly fallen upon the Zombie Community, and the leader of these modern day, Undead hating Know Nothings is, apparently, Robert Kirkman.

History will not be kind, Mr. Kirkman.

Still, for 70 bucks a pop, you TOO can be on the wrong side of history at Comic Con. I trust none of our readers will make that error.
