Where the heck did he bite?? xD
I’m going to guess that this was a variation on “necking”.
I uh… I think the head?
“It was killing me anyway” implies that she was bit wherever she has cancer. I forgot where that was.
She has Leukemia….so the blood is killing her.
Yes.. a bite right on the blood >:D
Teach that blood a lesson
Huh… Well, for her to be bleeding out so fast from a bite to the leg, he had to have bitten her in a place that will definitely make her uncomfortable with wearing any short skirts for a while. However, it’s kind of hard to deny Karrie is definitely a lot easier on the eyes as a vibrant and chipper zombie, than she was as a depressed cancer patient. Then again, the latest other zombie gal we’ve seen has been easy on the eyes too.
I am kind of curious how Rabbi’s will take to this cause I know how Catholic and Orthodox priests would. I mean, does being a zombie mean you’ve been barred from entering heaven? Is it Kosher for a Jewish zombie to bite someone below the navel? How does this impact Islam, for that matter. Bizarre questions, but so much potential for hilarity in trying to answer them.
First thing to point out is that Jews don’t believe in Heaven the same way that Christians do, but avoiding technicalities and looking at this from the broad angle of post-mortem existance, you have to do something seriously taboo to be looking at permanent damnation in the way you are thinking of. We’re talking rape, murder adultery, and idol-worship style stuff.
Now, depending on whether the getting ‘turned’ counts as death, this could be bad news for our friend James right now – although if we consider this ‘assisted suicide’ than that’s an entirely different can of worms and it’s own rabbinical discussion.
The bite itself isn’t really a kashrut concern. Certainly, humans are not kosher, but biting a person is not a violation of kashrut – assuming no consumption takes place.
Perhaps the most facinating aspect of such a conversation is the classification of zombies as living or dead and the implications of such. If they are considered to be alive, then many of the rules would seem to be unchanged, but if they are dead, then the possibility exists that they would not be bound by the mitzvot (commandments). This possibility is drawn from Leviticus 18:5 which is an important verse for determining the limits of martyrdom and many other things. It is also translated and interpreted in a wide variety of ways, but it is generally agreed to state that we should ‘live by the commandments’. To live by them and not to die by them. We could conceivably extrapolate this further for our present case that of a zombie can not ‘live’ then he does not need to ‘live by the commandments’. This presents further room for discussion on the now less certain definitions of ‘living’.
These discussions are fun but also useful in helping us explore our own beliefs through thought experiments as well as exercising out minds as logical puzzles. (Although perhaps I am biased, having enjoyed hours of serious discussion with rabbis regarding hypothetical edge cases including the use of pets as accessories on Shabbos.)
If you are interested in reading some other people’s musings over the Jewish religious concerns with zombies, I might recommend the following article on counting zombies as members of the community for worship and voting purposes
Unfortunately most of the discussion you will find on zombies pertains to non-sentient ‘classic’ zombies, but there is also some interesting conversation on golems out there which has some overlap regarding non-human sentients.
what a neat concept! thanks for typing that all up!
Actually, he didn’t bite her on the leg. If you pay attention to the previous page, he was biting her on the head (and in this page it’s still hinted from their shadows that he bit her on the head).
To be more specific, he probably bit her near the ear, because that’s the only soft area on the head (as in, soft enough for human teeth to bite and break skin easily).
Humans can actually bite off fingers and other such things. so he could of bitten her any were and gotten through
Biting off a finger is actually a lot easier than breaking through a person’s skull.
Just think about it, a finger can easily fit into a person’s mouth, so it leaves them a much bigger space to bite on the finger with more force.
A person’s skull can’t fit into the mouth, so a human being wouldn’t have enough biting force (from the lack of space) to break through skin so easily anywhere in the head, only near the ear.
This page is so well designed on many levels. Clever and a great use of minimalism. The metaphor is spot on too, yet not overplayed.
Seriously is ANYONE getting a strong stalker/clinger vibe from her?
she is dying asshole
Before that, especially with the parents reaction to seeing her.
ya, i agree, creepy as hell.
what’s with the F in the blood
i think it’s supposed to be a sketch version of shine in the puddle.
That terrified me in a weird way. Thank you for doing so much while showing so little.
It totally just occurred to me that they could’ve done this even easier by sharing needles.
