In 2013 the world was devastated by an apocalyptic event, annihilating almost all mankind and turning the earth’s surface into a poisonous wasteland. A handful of survivors took refuge in the depths of the Moscow underground, and human civilization entered a new dark age.
The year is 2033. An entire generation has been born and raised underground, and their besieged Metro Station-Cities struggle for survival, with each other, and the mutant horrors that await outside.

This is a ‘teaser scene’ from WYRMOOD - An independant Aussie Zombie Film currently in Production (readying for a 2013 release). Mad Max meets Dawn of the Dead in this retina-blistering, post-apocalyptic, action/horror feature!
I don’t know about you guys, but this looks fucking awesome! The shots are great!
The Walking Dead
From The Walking Dead: Door Opens
Photoset of Zoey (Left 4 Dead)
Costume by me (Straywind)
Here are some shots of my Zoey costume taken in my area. Stillvisions’ garage makes a pretty cool warehouse type setting! I’m thinking if I don’t get a haircut my hair might be long enough to re-wear Zoey for a bit at Youmacon in November. It might be a decent Sunday costume to wear before heading back to Canada. We’ll see if I can pack it!
Comic Con Horror
Submitted in the ask:
“Not sure if you guys take accounts of insane things we see, but I thought I’d share my horror. I’m a comic artist and I attend comic cons all over the US. I hit a few anime cons randomly and I saw one of the most horrific things ever while working my small press table once. There was a comic drawing school from Japan present, had their own tables, and all these con goers were losing their minds about them being there.-
-They were saying insane stuff to these artist kids. Stuff like that they want to have these Japanese art students babies and wanted to have sex with them right there or have the boys have sex with each other right there so they could watch and just SO impressed simply by these kids being Japanese and being there. It was the most horrifying thing I’d ever witnessed, and all the poor Japanese art students looked so embarrassed by what was being said to them and didn’t know how to response.-
-I felt so bad for the kids because SO many gross fan people were doing it. I’m Puerto Rican, and all I was thinking was if someone walked up to me and started talking in horrible Spanish at me about burritos and wanting to see me have sex with my table-mate I would punch them in the head and be SO offended. It was the most horrifying ‘treating people not like people’ thing I’d ever seen and that the fan kids thought they were being amazing to these Japanese art students made it even worse. “
Zelly has taken the plunge and given Slender a try… Suspense is the real killer!
And Slenderman of course.
I TOLD HER!
I did have to scrape Zelly off the ceiling after this. It was a very intense moment.
It’s an old and uninteresting complaint: black characters on TV–and horror movies–get killed or written off too early. Clearly, that is what’s been happening on The Walking Dead with T-Dog. (UPDATE: The arrival of a new character signals a possible shift in season three.).
I’m going to try to push the debate further, past “isn’t it a shame characters of color get short shrift.” The truth is the T-Dog Problem signals broader problems with The Walking Dead and some other prominent dramas. It’s a symptom of an ailment the writers might actually care to remedy, beyond appeasing black viewers.
First, the basics. Earlier this season T-Dog told Dale he was concerned about being black and a weak link in the group. This was an insightful moment from the writers, foregrounding the idea that being different after the apocalypse might be a problem–after all, in times of stress, people stick to their own–and an interesting meta-commentary on the fragility of being a black character on TV. T-Dog was a great candidate for a quick kill. Then T-Dog disappeared. I literally forgot all about him until last week, when he had one line that was almost comically interrupted. This week T-Dog was similarly marginalized, leading Vulture‘s recapper to state: “By this point, the casual dismissal of one of two minority characters…on this show is feeling extremely suspect. The only thing saving it from being full-on offensive is that the same treatment is being given to Hershel’s entire white family.”
The problem isn’t only about a tired debate over representation.
The real problem with T-Dog’s absence is it undermines the point of the whole show."
Aymar Jean Christian lays it down as to why TV shows lose their souls when they fail at promised diversity (Heroes, anyone?) on the R today. (via racialicious)
Also, like, in the finale? When the mob of thousands of walkers from Atlanta stormed through and only like one of them was not white?
I was like
either this show is way racist, or ALL THE BLACK PEOPLE SURVIVED.
Only season three will tell!
(Ugh, why do I still watch this show I don’t even.)
The show’s handling of Glenn has been good so far, though. If they follow roughly the lines of the comic, he should be around for quite a while. Michonne is another minority character who will probably be properly introduced in the third season - even if she does sometimes feel like “Strong Black Woman” played to the max.
