Robert Kirkman is the brains and talent behind The Walking Dead graphic novel and television series, a project he’s been working on for the past seven years. With that in mind, you’d think he’d have a well established zombie survival plan in his back pocket, and you’d be right.
In a recent interview with ZRS Head, Matt Mogk, Kirkman confirmed that he’s thought a lot about what he would do if caught in a real-life zombie outbreak, but his plan isn’t what you might expect.
“At the first sign of zombies I’d jump off the tallest building I could find.”
He went on to explain that far from being a natural survivor, he tends to be on the overweight and lazy side of life (his words).
No doubt Kirkman’s time spent writing about the endless difficulties of trying to live in an undead world contributes to his outlook. The coming zombie plague won’t be like a video game. It won’t be fun, and it won’t be easy.
The full interview will appear in an upcoming book about zombie culture. The details of that project to be announced soon!
