Dead Inside: Do Not Enter — Notes from the Zombie Apocalypse
Dead Inside: Do Not Enter
by Lost Zombies
2011, 160 pages, 8 x 10 x 0.5 inches
$15 Buy a copy on Amazon
Some of my favorite things about zombie movies are the details of the changed world. The dead grass, broken windows, toppled telephone poles, abandoned cars with missing wheels and trunks left open, boarded-up buildings, spent ammo shells, and other signs of struggle and desperation serve to create a fascinatingly creepy environment.
And that’s why I like Dead Inside: Do Not Enter so much. The book consists entirely of letters, hand-written warnings, and pages torn from journal entries that were written during the zombie pandemic. The notes are on matchbooks, napkins, photographs, advertisements, shopping lists, road maps, scraps of cardboard, and gum wrappers. Some of the notes are written with pen and pencil, others are written with lipstick, burnt wood, crayons, and blood.
The messages of the notes themselves tell the tale of the rise of the zombie pandemic, from tentative, joking questions about a “really bad flu,” escalating to confused panic, and later to grim acceptance of the new reality that the survivors now must live in.
In the introduction to Dead Inside, we learn that these notes had been found in a Dora the Explorer backpack. The first note presented in the book was written by the man who killed the owner of the backpack, a girl who was about 10 years old and had been bitten by a zombie (but had not yet turned into one). The man wrote “I opened her backpack and found all these notes and letters. This stuff is poisonous. No one in their right mind should read it. Reading this is like looking into the sun.” – Mark Frauenfelder

I HAVE A MIGHTY NEEEDDD
I remember this! It was an online thing where you would submit artifacts and there was an email that would go out requesting specific things. I remember there were requests for videos and audio recordings too. I wondered what happened to the project.
TCR | 2007.03.12 | It reads: “Dear Stephen, As editor-in-chief of Marvel, I am burdened with the handling of our character’s estates and the sad event that a hero should perish before his time. Captain America’s will was read last Friday, and while heavy hearted, I am proud to announce the star spangled Avenger has bequeathed his most valuable possession, his indestructible shield, to the only man he believed had the red, white, and blue balls to carry the mantle. Stephen Colbert. Welcome to the Marvel Universe. Sincerely, Joe Quesada.
POWERS CASTING UPDATE, YO! Exclusive!
All week long, especially since the USA Today Powers first look, a lot of you have been asking for more updates and specific casting updates about your favorite long-term Powers characters.
PlayStation and Sony were kind enough to let me use my little corner of the inter-webs to give you guys first dibs on stuff that we all think fans of the comics would be most interested in.
Most asked questions: who is playing Zora? Triphammer? And Detective Kutter?
Well, here we go…
Logan Browning has been cast was Zora,
Andrew Sensenig (Upstream Color!!) is Triphammer
Justice Leak IS Detective Kutter.
They join Shalto Copely as Christian Walker, Susan Heyward as Detective Pilgrim, Michelle Forbes as Retro Girl, Eddie Izzard as Wolfe, Noah Taylor as Johnny Royale and Olesya Rulin as Calista
Filming is underway in Atlanta for the first 10 episodes as we speak. Look for lots of updates coming very soon. Like, very soon.
Every PSN user in the US will receive the first episode of Powers for free and PlayStation Plus members will be able to view the entire season for free.
All volumes of the Eisner award-winning Powers series are available through Marvel/icon or digitally through comixology. yum yum.

No singer can touch Lucinda Williams when she’s calling from the lonely outskirts of Despairville.
Jim Dingilian proves that a creative and skillful artist can create works of art with just about anything. By coating the interior of empty glass bottles with black smoke and then carefully brushing it away with tools mounted on dowels, he creates detailed and beautiful but dark works of smoke art that are dripping with a sense of suburban decay (via Bored Panda).
are you shitting me
