I did one of these comics a few years ago. I always meant to make them a regular thing, but haven’t ever had the chance. Funnily enough, if you look at that strip, you’ll see some similar panel compositions!

I believe I’ve mentioned this before, but if some enterprising writer of Young Adult fiction can figure out a YA-friendly way to write a book squarely aimed at teens about the zombie apocalypse, they would make a million dollars. Teenage boys are fantastically interested in zombies- my classroom’s copies of World War Z by Max Brooks, The Walking Dead by Robert Kirkman, I Am Legend by Richard Matheson (not a zombie novel per se, but pretty well inspired the genre) and for those who get parental permission, Dead Sea by Brian Keene.
