Omaha Zombie Walk 2008

Today Legend Comics sponsored the Omaha Zombie Walk as a benefit for the Omaha Food Bank. While they had a few people show up in zombie costume, a local makeup artist grabbed some pancake syrup, chocolate syrup, and red food coloring; and proceeded to create several more zombies from willing spectators.

Zombie Walks throughout the country are an outgrowth of World Zombie Day™. Like SF/F conventions, World Zombie Day™ is a chance for the fans of zombie culture to come together and share views, experiences, and tips on being a better (or should that be grosser) zombie. I got a chance to meet and talk with a lot of people in the few hours I huddled in the Legend Comics store to stay warm - it was a cold day outside.

Around 3PM those brave soul-less bas----- stumbled out onto the sidewalks and made their way down Leavenworth. Even some of the youngest zombies I had ever seen.

Adam Tibits, the organizer, promised that he will do a 2009 Zombie Walk in a time of the year when it was guarenteed to be warmer. So keep an eye on his MySpace page;
