After doing Monday’s 80s commercial, I wanted to do something with Billy nowadays. Since zombies don’t physically age, well beyond decomposition, he’s a middle aged guy in the body of an eight year old.
I found that to be funny. I even thought about giving him one of those big assed cigars. but in the end I felt that played too closely to the baby faced gangster character trope.
We’ve got one more strip dealing with Charleston Foods this week and an epilogue planned for Monday, then we’ll get back with other characters and stuff… sprinkling in tidbits from this arc as we go along.
Also, yes Billy’s line in panel two comes from a Brian Posehn bit. I think he’s funny.
