Hey everyone, I hope you had a great weekend :D

I actually took a while to figure out what John would say here, and had the pictures planned out, and even the last panel written well before I figured out what John was going to out.

I allllmost had him give away the big secret, but that would invalidate everything past 300 regardless. So I'd rather hold that back until I know we're done. Or maybe not say it at all because it'll be more disappointing than Lost :)

Well, have a great week! We'll see on Thursday with 297 :)

I'm afraid that the last bubble of Johns in the 3rd panel really doesn't make much sense. "If there weren't so celibate".....really not sure what you are trying to get at there.

I'm also confused. Why would Robert say I can't believe you just told him that, wouldn't it be "me" instead of "him" or is the him referring to our zombie cowboy?

Whaaaa! I suspect one heck of a twist is acomin!

Is Robert talking to Thomas, even though he is already dead/Zombified, or is he just losing it?

In any case it is interesting to know he has other clones.

What?!? Rober is Gay? Noooooo - surely not!
Magravan edit delete reply
@Moonseeker - Typo, thanks for catching it... It was supposed to be "If they weren't so celibate"

@asheswillfall - Him refers to Sully, yes.

@PhilC - Not really a twist, no.

@T.Gatto - He's talking to John thinking that he's Thomas. John is reading Thomas' notes.

@the_brigand - We're not going to get a definitive answer on that one :)

I want to know who else he has clones of :)
SnoogI'd (Guest) edit delete reply
Obviously yes Robets gay you don't have to tell us it's obvious. So the clones obviously have no sex drive if there celibate which means robert can't get a new lover or repopulate the earth hos goal could be either. However if John a clone he's the exception or we sure he isn't Thomad and maybe he does have amnesia it could still have been a clone who did

Meant to ask I can no linger find a tomb with a view has that been taken down?
asheswillfall (Guest) edit delete reply
Knowing everyone around you is a zombie and if they knew you had a brain you'd become dinner would definitely kill any sex drive I'd have!

@asheswillfall - One of the stories we probably aren't going to get to ;)

@Snoog - It is the zombies who are celibate. Remember, until John started flirting with Beth, it was something that didn't really come up... Again, another facet that I intended to explore but is unlikely to happen.

Also, was Tomb with a View Ferix's comic? I think it was... I think that he's hidden / deleted all of them after a brush with a particularly nasty individual who took an internet vendetta FAAAAR beyond what it should have been.

@asheswillfall - Well fortunately you're not John, or I would have to rewrite the whole beginning of the comic :)

If I remember correctly Beth liked John because he was warm. Anyway, I take it that I need to find another comic to read in 2 weeks? I don't have time to dig through forums, but that's the impression I'm getting from your comments. Would you considder releasing your uncompleted story like Rick Cook did?

Still holding some back in case we take a break for and decide that we miss it.

If we don't miss it, then I'm not sure how I'll do it... Really, most of the stuff I'm doing is still in my head...

haha. i love robert's line i wonder why the zombies can't see green.
Violet Black (Guest) edit delete reply
Seconding model S's comment. I'm getting really, really curious as to why the zombies can't see the green goo they bleed. I'd have expected Robert to at least know about its existence if he was the one who started the zombie apocalypse. Le mysterious!
Magravan edit delete reply
@model S - Robert has a bunch of lines here :) Which one in particular?

@Violet Black - Yeah... That's probably one of the biggest mysteries of the story ;)
