ZRC Reviews: Marvel Zombies vs. Age of Ultron

| November 3, 2015

Believe it or not, there is more than one Battleworld event comic featuring the oppression of the Differently Animated. This time the ZRC is looking at Age of Ultron vs. Marvel Zombies. You may recall from our last review that the Marvel Comics Multiverse is now collapsed into one giant, expansive world full of dangerous [...]

ZRC Reviews: Marvel Zombies Battleworld #1

| November 3, 2015

We’ve had a long and troubled history with Marvel Zombies here at The Zombie Rights Campaign. As one might expect from a phenomenon shepherded toward mass popularity in part by none other than Robert Kirkman of Walking Dead infamy. Marvel Comics isn’t about to let a little thing like a grand reshuffle of their entire [...]

ZRC Review: ‘Empire of the Dead’ Volume 1

| October 9, 2015

George Romero, longtime foe and occasionally sympathetic voice of Zombies both, is at it again with a comic series from Marvel. Entitled ‘Empire of the Dead’, it features, well, Romero Zombies, more or less, in a post-apocalyptic world very similar to Romero’s more recent films like ‘Land of the Dead’ or ‘Diary of the Dead’. [...]

New ‘Walking Dead’ Spinoff Details

| January 22, 2015

The Zombie Rights Campaign takes issue with ‘The Walking Dead’ tv series. It’s blatant fearmongering, served up with a side of gore and a big order of dysfunctional drama. Hmm. You can tell I am writing this before I have lunch. Ahem. At any rate, we’ve known that there will be a Walking Dead spinoff [...]

A Slightly Different Take on Zombie Voting Rights

| July 6, 2014

We’re big backers of the Undead Right to Vote here at The ZRC. However, it is good to remember that Zombies aren’t a monolithic bloc when it comes to politics, so we were pleased to see this recent comic on the possibility of Zombie voting challenges in the future. Not sure about that ‘conquest’ language [...]

Zombie Learning Satirized? We Do Not Approve.

| January 9, 2014

It is a well-known fact among Zombie Rights Activists, though not in the general population, that Zombies of all stripes are generally capable of learning, even if they are (temporarily, we hope) impaired by the death-Undeath transition. It has been a staple of George Romero’s work for decades; John Russo agreed, in Return of the [...]

Bob the Angry Flower Blames the Victim On World War Z

| October 12, 2013

The Zombie Rights Campaign wasn’t hugely enamored with World War Z. It had many issues, both cinematic and Civil Rights in nature. But it’s hard not to view this Bob the Angry Flower comic as blaming the CG Zombies for the failures of the film. We cannot agree with that. BTAF has had some issues [...]

Your Routine Reminder to Read ‘Skin Horse’

| October 5, 2013

We like webcomic extraordinaire ‘Skin Horse’ around here at the ZRC, for its longstanding and remarkably tolerant depiction of the Undead. However, the newly-unfolding storyline apparently involves an Undead Equality movement, complete with an ‘Undead Rights’ blogger. So naturally, we, or rather, *I* love it even more. I can steal activism ideas! I mean. Bring [...]

First ‘World War Z’ Trailer Not Promising For Zombies, Movie-Lovers

| November 9, 2012

Our friends over at Into the Dark have alerted the ZRC to the first trailer for the upcoming (and highly troubled) major Living Supremacist film ‘World War Z’, based somewhat loosely on the book of the same name by Max Brooks. Having seen it, I have to say my earlier suspicions that the novel had [...]

No End to ‘Walking Dead’ Merch

| October 11, 2012

You’ve probably seen those ultra-cheap Jakks Pacific games in the toy aisles at your local big box store, the sort that plug into a TV using old-fashioned RCA cables (red, yellow, white) for a quick gaming experience sans the usual console. Usually they’re compilations of old 8-bit games, and often they come with a specialized [...]
