When last we left our train of…. Just a minute though. What is with the trend lately of Living survivors of an allegedly bad Zombie uprising being stuck in transit? Fear the Walking Dead, Kabaneri of the Iron Fortress, even some of the recent Resident Evils have been on boats and what not. There’s a [...]
