The popularity of zombies is much like the zombie itself: undying. I'm not complaining, especially after seeing last week's debut of The Walking Dead on AMC. It's worth seeing (and congrats to Tony Moore, who lived in Kansas City for three years and illustrated the first six issues and continued doing the cover art through issue No. 24).
Now zombies are being used to market the revitalization of Kansas' capital city.
To promote Topeka as not being a dump anymore, Washburn University students designed a video game in which gamers kill zombies "carrying anti-Topeka signs" to reveal a shiny new Topeka, the Topeka Capital-Journal reported. Carrying negative signs? In Topeka? Why does that sound familiar? Oh.
Of course, the game can't be Halo or Call of Duty violent. But the designers are trying to keep it interesting for young people. Uh, good luck hitting that sweet spot in a Resident Evil world.
