Pete and Ramon and Penny are kicking off the Halloween season early with a whole slew of zombie books to talk about that center around George Romero's original Night of the Living Dead from 1968. Ramon tells Pete he missed out when he didn't read Dark Horse's Paybacks, which pokes fun at superheroes and there (expensive) gadgetry. And speaking of gadgets, the future is a total technocracy in Tokyo Ghost. This was an odd one that the Crew had a lot of fun with.
