If you like Philosophy, Zombies and Ghosts

This is perhaps one of the best comics, ever, of all time, plus one.  Read first before the philosophy commences.

Commence!

What a fascinating take on zombies and ghosts (and zombie ghosts).  I think zombies are excellent stand ins / symbols of “the tyranny of the masses”.  Nothing quite embodies the fear of the great unwashed like literally brainless, always hunger violent monsters.  Its like every other pre 1950’s Hollywood play on the superiority of the leisure class and the inferiority of the servant class either went extinct or evolved into the zombie metaphor, much like dinosaurs and birds.
