Hi /zom/
I'm doing a webcomic about a zombie apocalypse in Australia. If you're interested in zombies maybe you'd enjoy it.


If you know of any other zombie webcomics that I might like to check out maybe you could comment with them.

I couldn't get past the first page, the age of MsPaint has been and gone.

Checkout http://deadwinter.cc for one done right.

Thanks for suggesting this comic. I think there's a bit too much text per page some of the time but I like her character design. The page with the first zombie in the diner is really cool. Her style definitely improves as the comic goes on too.

I didn't draw mine in paint by the way, The style develops quite a bit over the first 20-30 pages, since I've been doing it for a couple of years.

Fir enough if you think it's too simple but I didn't want to spend ages on every page because I'm updating it twice a week.

Compound bow or crossbow? Which weighs more? Which is louder? Which is more accurate?

I love bows; during term-time, I shot every tuesday and saturday for two hours since 13 through to my graduation.

With the luxury of a homestead environment, I would choose the compound. The arrow would be heavier, carry more impact even with comparable penetration. And if things got ugly, I could reload and loose twice as fast and even have the luxury to breathe out.

But in SHTF situation,I would not choose a compound or a crossbow. I would use a takedown recurve (with iron sights) or longbow. I'd hate to think what mud and moisture would do to the moving parts over a the period of a year, a third of which would be raining.

And on the road, with all your kit and supplies, I'd hate to be carrying around a contraption that doesn't change shape, fragile high-performance, precision contraption. If I could, I'd avoid the ironsights till hunting sessions.

Arrows: I've not made my own arrows before, but I've been told then can shatter with the high-performance , high poundage bows of today. Carrying around anything more than 20 arrows for a week on top of your gear would start to annoy me. Archery is really a homesteader's tool.

>ammo will run out eventually
People reload their own ammo all the time. It's not uncommon at all.
>gunshots will attract every zombie in the country
A regular gunshot would for a couple miles at least, yes. That's why you get a suppressor. Yes I realize a suppressor is not a "silencer" that makes your gun dead silent like it does in the movies, but it does keep the sound from carrying as far. On top of that, a suppressed bullet shot past a tree at a distance, for example, would make it sound like it was coming from the tree, not from the shooter. That's the point of a suppressor.

tl;dr a suppressor will make it sound like it's coming from a different direction and won't carry as far.

Shambler 14/05/19(Mon)15:58 No. 5104 ID: 8326de

I reload myself, but the day will come (if the zombies do take over or if Obama & Co. have their way) when there will be no more powder, bullets, or primers. That will be a ways down the road, but if society falls...which the idea of a Zombie Apocalypse kinda demands...the supply of ammo is going to be finite.

That said, as long as the ammo DOES hold out, I will be using a firearm. And I'm totally with you on the use of suppressors. I can't make one myself, but I know guys with the tools, the materials, the skills, and the plans. Those guys will never want for employment once all the ATF cocksuckers are walking corpses shambling around looking for brains to eat.

Growing up on an Iowan farm, I know how to both hunt and grow plants (this will come into play later).
A buddy and I were dicking around on the computers at school during our yearbook class, since we filled our quota of pages that day, and found this island in canada. Since we were talking about zombies, we bot knew that this was a perfect place to go to in case of zombie outbreak. We figured since the lake(?) is about 2 miles wide at it's least wide part, we'd be relatively safe. We decided on it for sure since it was a nature preserve, so it has plenty of meat producing animals on it, and it's in canada which has a rather low population density. We could either harvest the raw materials of the forests to build shelter, or drive 8 hours to the nearest city and scavenge for supplies there. When the time comes, we both go to save a select few of people that we trust with our lives, who are very few in number, but also provide necessary skills such as cooking, scouting, building and fighting/hunting. What do you guys think?

Plants natural grow here, but it don't seem good for an intensive plantation.

Husbandry should work, some sort of extensive agriculture if we find the good plants but in this case, we have to remove trees and that's a lot of work.

The happening will not be the same in every place of the world. People will react differently, have different culture etc. I tried to make a list of the country that will have the best chance to survive a zombie invasion.

This is the first time I try to make this list so there is a lot of things to fix in it. If you see some mistakes or things I forgot to mention, please add them.

1) Best Korea
+ the country is literally designed to resist a zombie apocalypse.
+ guns and heavy arty everywhere
+ bitten people will be shot without hesitation
+ they don't trade with others nation
+ lot of mountain and forest
+ Great Leader

2) Switzerland
+ the country is literally designed to resist a zombie apocalypse.
+ all citizen have a long rifle and know how to use it

During WWII, putting the royal family on a boat is a bad idea. If the London population try to eat royal brains, with the few survivors knowing there is a lot of food in the palace, it is a good idea.

They will probably stay, I think that with power come some sort of honor and they may prefer to die than to left the place. If they leave, the situation would be far more explicit for the survivors in the commonwealth. If I had to write a fiction, I would make them leave. In "reality" they will probably stay.

What is sure is, if they manage to survive, and they have good chances, they will be in a good position to unite people after the happening.

If we remove the bridge, Venice can be acceded only by sea. They built the city on the sea so it need a naval battle to access the city. With some modern weapons and few good ships, trained troops can protect the city from literally anything except a modern army.

Pity not to see Siberia on the list:
+No population = no zombies.
+No need for bunkers, nobody is coming for you 500 miles over tough terrain to steal three turnips.
+You can grow everything by yourself
-It's hard, and it's cold, but that's life, deal with it.
+-You might end up living alone, but isn't that what you WANT from a zombie apocalypse?

Shambler 14/04/23(Wed)22:44 No. 5077 ID: 824518

Already mentioned in Russia.
Siberia is in the best part to resist zombies, but take care another Horde isn't going to fuck you again.
There was more people living in Siberia than in Kazakhstan before Genghis Khan. Being alone and far from everything have its drawbacks.

So, /zom/, do you guys have any plans on rebuilding civilization after the zompocalypse?

I always fantasize about having a little community with it's own little militia and having farmers feed our population by farming on the outskirts of town.

And what would be the best way to clear out a, let's say, 25,000 population town of zombies to make it safe? Fortifying it? Protecting from siege and raiders?

Also, kind of straying away from zombies here but, do you think we would ever get back to the point of space travel? I would like to think zombies would just bring upon a second dark age, and we would eventually get back on track with technological development.

>>The best bet is to just fit in a group and slowly take it over from the inside. Why do the hard work when you can take it from somebody else

I doubt you could take over anything that wasn't from McDonalds.

Jokes aside, how exactly would you "take over a group from the inside". I'd love to hear how someone with no talent whos main experience in real life comes down to "sits in front of a computer yelling at mom to bring me cheezy snacks" would go from the position of an outsider, to the head of whatever group they attempted to become a part of.

Thank you for the laugh haven't heard graboids in awhile. Ah the memories.

As for the zombie apocalypse I would call/text all friends and family on day one while phones still work. Tell them where I'm going and what to bring with them. I would go to a local food or furniture warehouses or BJ's "other options acceptable" set up a group to come back to there, then go to the nearest corp dept store that sells guns, knives, bows, ammo, and survival gear. Sorry to take it from the walking dead but newcomers get the three questions. Use friends and family to dominate group and run things. Run a semi democratic community, have council but have it rigged.Build, and scavenge outward from base, collect and burn the redead. I'm a fit guy so I'd run raid parties.

Shambler 14/04/16(Wed)13:46 No. 5061 ID: 27464e

I think there is only 2 possibility for the social organization:

We can have a charismatic and strong leader succeeding at unifying the people and a more-or-less dictatorship will be established.
Given the situation, he will have no other choice than establish a maoist-like policy and use force against all opponents.
While this assure us than we can farm safely from both zombies and looters, it will also result in atrocious living conditions. We will have to hide the food we make and we will be tortured by the police to give it. We basically have the choice of a hard working life, keeping a low profile all the time, and being killed. All rebellions will be solved in a bath of blood and there is a small chance for stalinist purges or Kmer rouge slaughtering.
After decades of this bullshit, situation should be stabilized and we could hope for a better future.

The second possibility is a total decay of civilization and a come back to dark ages. If there is no more guns, small groups of well armed and trained friends will loot farms, do whatever they want where they are and will finish to realize that they can just say they are the lords of a given place. Massive local conflicts and pillages will follow and we will slowly see a medieval hierarchy appear.
After century of farmers being slaughtered by wars, there is a chance that the productivity will be high enough so the strong people will rely on modern institutions rather than pure force to impose themselves in positions of power. Then, society can start again.

In any case, we are fucked.

is 1.1 million points good?

it looks like something just for fun, the important question is whether or not the shotgun is real since that's probably more likely to be used in a real firefight than a long range rifle in urban home invasion if that's what you're talking about


I don't own any guns, but tell me what I've got and what I've missed - also what ammunition they use ;D

back row, right hand side going left

M2, lee enfield No4 MK1? (the only one I know specifically exists), ???? then about center it's a mauser kar? then a really weird one, then an older lee enfield, another mauser kar of some sort

looks like some sort of russian direct knockoff of an MP44 in the back second from left

To kill zombies without reloading ever

Shambler 14/04/16(Wed)13:14 No. 5060 ID: 27464e


a lot on nogun friends.

This is a failed strategy, and you can't survive with "lota guns".

Why? Because the army already tried. You really think that 10 undisciplined manchild can success where the fucking army failed?

You shoot one time and all zombies at 5km walk toward you.

You are 10 in a house, there is no more electricity and water and you just have 3L of water left.

If you plan to get thought zombies by force, you are fucked. What you need is several years of food, a water source and purification filters/pills a well-hidden place and some luck.

Yes, whatever you are doing, you need luck to survive.

Sup /zom/, simple question: what are some good zombie books to read?

I lik the Day by Day Armageddon series for what it was, even if the third book was a little phoned in. There's also the Plague of the Dead, I've only read the first book, but I liked it a little more.

So, has anyone got any good zombie books to add? Oh, besides WWZ.

As far as zombie literature you often need to take a few steps back in order to move forward. A few I have found enjoyable are as follows.
Book of the Dead by John Skipp Craig Spector (collection of short stories)
Wet Work by Philip Nutman (black ops team abroad when outbreak happens)
The Dead by Mark E. Rodgers (standard fare with a demonic twist)
Dead City by Joe Mckinney (1st of the Dead World Series a virus breaks out in Texas after hurricanes)
Down the Road by Bowie V. Ibarra (1st of series set in Texas again survival drama guy travelling the state trying to get home.)
Dying to Live by Kim Paffenroth (1st of series survival drama where the dead are the least of your troubles)
Autum by David Moody (1st of series slow starter heavy on drama less on gore picks up halfway in)
The Rising by Brian Keene (1st of series another demon possession series with a twist beware of animals)
Day By Day Armageddon by J.L. Bourne (1st of kinda series, stick with the first one)
Zombies and Shit by Carlton Mellick III (OK this is just a fun read, survival show meets Return of the Living Dead)
The Walking Dead: Rise of the Governor by Robert Kirkman, Jay Bonansinga (1st of series essentially the governors back story a bit lacklustre unless you are a fan of the series)

Pride and Prejudice and Zombies is a bit repetative but very good as it's written in the exact style of the original.

I missed my chance last year but from what my mates have told me it was a pretty awesome evening consisting of a few set-pieces and and a bit of walking/zombie-fleeing between them. Followed by an awesome zombie-themed after party.

a long time ago 7-10 years or myabe moar there were a certain story bout a notebook or RP or
not really sure, one anon find this notebook and write something on it and left it for the next anon write something else, obviously it was in a zombie apocalypse era, and anons wrote their exp bad, good, cheap, noble, etc like some sort of diary who passed along survivors of the zom apocalypse, now my question is simple, is there any place where this story its saved,or thread its alive somewhere? or at least some anon knows bout what im typing?

I recall participating in a thread somewhat like you described back on 711chan but not here. No idea if anyone backed it up though.

Close I can recall here was a history thread that listed past events in sequential order until it caught up with the present then proceeded into the speculated (and turned wacky) future.

Shambler 14/01/26(Sun)23:35 No. 5002 ID: b6494d

It's am urban-dead knockoff with added vampires (that the creators have a fetish/bias for playing as) and a 'donate'-to-win mechanic.

The only other difference to note is a bigger emphasis on combat (that the developers claim is "streamlined") which means more damage/less health and a 2:1 ration of weapons vs every other usable item. The weapons are also grossly unbalanced which makes 90% of them redundant as you work your way up the tiers towards the cookie cutters.

Stick to UrbanDead unless you have a vampire fetish (or go and read twilight).
