I was sitting down to form a joke around the idea I came up with for a one-off and no jokes would come. After an hour or so of goofing off on the internet while trying to force said joke to occur, I decided I had to come up with something else while that situation would go on the back burner and have a joke come more naturally to it.
So I went back to the well of ideas I have saved in various notepad files on my computer. These go back to before Zombie Roomie was named Zombie Roomie. I was planning on doing a comic that was much more one-off based and there wouldn’t be any plot to it… in coming up with ideas for that comic, I stumbled across the idea of doing some zombie based strips. That led me to coming up with a zombie character and that character eventually would become George.
