Bizarro is brought to you today by The Walking Dead.

Today’s creepy Halloweenkinda cartoon is the brainchild of my good buddy and colleague, Dan McConnell. Here in the U.S., people have taken to putting decals on the back windows of their cars that have a stick figure representation of the people in their family, often with names and pets included. It’s a little too precious for a cynical curmudgeon like me but I understand why people like to do it. I loved McC’s take on the zombie family’s decal as they chase a brain down the street. I added the silhouettes of the flesh-eating zombies inside the car and the vanity plate. I used an old Chevy from the 60s because they’re more fun to draw than modern SUVs, which is where a majority of these decals seem to appear. Probably because the majority of American family’s today want to drive apartment buildings around instead of cars.

OLD BIZNESS: Here’s a cartoon from 2009 around Halloween time, hence the jack-o-lantern in the background. I’ve done a bunch of these “3 Things Wrong” puzzle lampoons and really enjoy them. This is probably the simplest one I’ve ever done.
