Well I’m happy to say that I’ve got five more zombie types to share with you this week. It took some digging to find these guys but they’re pretty killer.
Historics are a rare but fun type of zombie that pop up once in a while, usually in comedies. There’s actually an episode of the Simpsons where zombies attack and Homer shoots, zombie George Washington, Einstein and Shakespeare. In this case I’ve gone with the ever-hilarious zombie Abe Lincoln. For some reason zombie presidents seem to be really popular.
Historics fall into the larger category of religious / magical zombies because it’s unlikely that much of anything would be left of people from the ancient past other than bones as their skin and tissue would have completely rotted away or become too brittle to move. Any truly ancient zombies would be incredibly rare and would be more like mummies or the soft tissue bodies found in China; Xin Zhui, aka Lady Dai.
So whenever a big horde of zombies starts running around in a comedy, keep an eye out for these rare horrors.
