So why nerds? Well, our main characters, Oliver and Adam, are very much based off myself. Or at least aspects of myself. And those aspects are kinda nerdy, so...
But really, the entire premise for the comic came from a joke: nerds would do extremely well in the apocalypse for four very distinct reasons.
- When you live in your parents' basement, you're basically living in a bunker, the perfect place to wait out any kind of apocalypse.
- Building on #1, the large surplus of beef jerky and energy drinks would suffice as perfect rations to wait out the initial days of chaos.
- The encyclopedic knowledge of every zombie movie ever made would serve as the ultimate survival guide, regardless of whatever type of zombies the world is dealing with.
- And lastly, that decorative collection of medieval and/or east Asian swords and weapons are the perfect arsenal to fight the hordes of undead now running rampant across the globe.
So there you have it. Nerds will rule the apocalypse.
