Comic description

The Other Grey Meat explores a world where clever zombies are capable of carrying on a reasonable argument to rationalize why they have the right to eating your brains. Expanding further on this concept, TOGM comic goes on to explain an amusing zombie hierarchical system in which the upper-level undead, in fact, appear very much alive.

Highly intelligent, and recognizing a need for order amongst the chaos, senior level zombies live in houses, have active social lives, and are gainfully employed. Some have even been able to develop makeup, prosthetics and plastic surgeries that enable them to seem as alive as possible. It is as if the apocalypse has never happened.

Because all of the human brains have already been consumed, a super-genius (who is the Top Tier Zombie) develops a brain substitute that he calls The Other Grey Meat. It satisfies the society’s craving for brains, but seems to be lacking a key ingredient. Everything is running smoothly in this living dead society when, suddenly, a human with a real brain is thrown into their midst…

Well, it was only a tentative suggestion. I take your word for it that it's a huge amount of work. I don't draw comics, so I wouldn't know. It was mostly fun to read ...so, good job.

I'm glad that you see the allure of it, and while it was definitely a sit-com for the most part, the latter parts started to focus more on the drama side (as it seems to always happen with these sorts of things), which explains the bittersweet ending.

Truth be told though, we are kind of burnt out on the TOGM world for the time being. Maybe when some distance has come up, or maybe someday I might want to write something for it. Perhaps a short story / novel type setting. Right now, I'm trying to steer away from things that require someone else (in this case Skrael) to do most of the heavy lifting with regards to the amount of effort involved.

It's one thing for me to take a few hours to write out a script, yet another for the hundreds of hours for her to make it happen.

Also, you wouldn't, necessarily, have to retell everything. In fact, Why bother? You could reverse the way that you did it here. Instead of making the majority of the story about the world of zombies, with the rest as a little epilogue, rewrite the struggle as a quick prologue, and, then, flesh out the epilogue as the main story.

Then, for the history of the old world, you could refer the reader to the original story - as part 1.

Of course, if this was really all intended as just a lot of situational comedy, then - yeah - it's probably finished, as is. I just thought that I saw the seed for an interesting, bigger plot.

To follow the Zombie apocalypse-turned-Utopia idea. I don't usually watch or read zombie genres, but, I've never seen one where an advanced civilization came afterward.
