Animation Professor Releases Zombie Graphic Novel

An animation professor with Huntington University is releasing a zombie graphic novel entitled “Dead Anyway: Stories from the Zombie Apocalypse.” While we haven’t had a chance to see the graphic novel yet, we are curious to read it and give a report.

The book is a collaboration of different writers and artists. Most have a connection with the university.

Huntington University is a Christian college in northern Indiana. The article says the stories in the book are mostly silly or humorous. If you want to get a sample of the stories, you can visit deadanyway.com.

Parties, Zombies & Worms

Photo of gelatin worms

We’ve heard from some people that have hosted zombie parties. It’s great to hear churches and youth groups have taken advantage of our free resources.

In addition, we’ve heard of a few party ideas. A reader had a great twist on making these gelatin worms. Here’s her recipe:

Ingredients

2 packages of gelatin (I used black cherry)
1 pkg unflavored gelatin
3/4 cup whipping cream
3 cups boiling water
15 drops green food coloring
100 flexible straws
Tall container

Directions

  1. Combine gelatin in bowl add boiling water
  2. Let it cool to lukewarm and add whipping cream and food coloring
  3. Gather straws (flex them out). And put in container with a tight fit…a rubber and around straws is helpful
  4. Add gelatin mixture to the straw filled container and let set until firm
  5. Squeeze straws to get the worms out

Enjoy!

Zombies Assist in Counter-Terrorism

Breaking news from the zombie files: Minnesota Public Radio reports zombies will help add some levity to a counterterrorism summit in October, 2012. Apparently, zombies will use their gift of relentless harassment to add some levity to realistic training events.

This is a nice, practical use for the walking dead. If zombies are everywhere, they might as well be helpful.

Next month, will be prime time for zombies. Youth leaders can host a zombie party to go with our book. We’ve just added invitations and postcard templates for your use. Enjoy!

Zombie talk grows

This morning, I came across an Associated Press article saying zombie talk was growing due to some horrifying incidents:

“After gory incidents, online ‘zombie’ talk grows”

It appears when we hear of people doing horrible things to others, we think only a zombie can do that. Even bad news in the European economies have created terms like “zombie banks, zombie economy and zombie governments.”

Ever since sin came into the world, we’ve been dealing with death. Sin is like a zombie virus. Thankfully, there is hope in someone who beat the zombie virus and took the pain and death for us.

He gave us a new life even when we were dead in sin. God’s grace has saved you. Ephesians 2:5
