I’m not sure if this is the first time I did this, but I totally broke the fourth wall in that last panel. But I HAD to! I couldn’t resist that thumbs up gag. Don’t ask me why Dr. Keck turned into a zombie so quickly though, whereas Orneryboy stayed in his pale white state for almost an entire day. The “zombie transformation timing” varies pretty wildly throughout the comic, depending on the demands of the "story".
