This comic was originally outlined to be more of a joke that John didn’t prep a bag for Lyn because she’s a bad ass that can hold her own in said inevitable zombie apocalypse. She wouldn’t know if she should be upset or complimented by that…

But when I sat down to start work on the comic, I decided we needed to hammer home that Zoey’s folks still don’t know she’s with a zombie. The only time they met him was when he was dezombified and they don’t visit often.

When this arc was plotted it was initially just going to be something quick and cute about Zoey deciding to go back to school, but when I decided to merge the larger Zoey family story into it– it became something I’ve been excited to share with you guys. It’s going to be one of the more epic arcs in ZR and things should shape up to be pretty cool if I don’t screw it up.
