If the Internet has taught us anything, it’s that the zombie apocalypse is looming, and it’s coming soon. In order to protect ourselves from the zombies’ grumbling stomachs, it makes sense to prepare by studying a handbook to the nethermost depths of the zombie’s psyche. Zombies According to Savage Chickens is not that guide; however, this e-book original collection of comics certainly makes for a more amusing read, which, after all, is what truly matters. Doug Savage, the cartoonist who has maintained the hilarious Savage Chickens web comic blog since 2005 by uploading sticky notes illustrated with the antics of his clever cast of characters, has imagined another memorable type of Savage Chicken: the Zombie Chickens. Zombies have one thing on their minds: BRAINS. But that doesn't necessarily mean that they run amuck all day looking for the next lucky person in the land-of-the-living to provide lunch. How might a zombie interact at an art auction, wedding, or job interview? What is their ideal Valentine’s Day gift, and how would a zombie Shakespeare have taken his plays to the Globe? These are exactly the questions—the totally relevant questions—about the imminent zombie takeover that only Mr. Savage has the guts (and the brains) to tackle. After all, why study up on the zombie apocalypse when you can laugh at the expense of the undead instead?

It goes without saying: love makes no sense. In fact, neither does flirting, dating, or breaking up. Anyone who says relationships are all cake, kisses, and cloud nine has yet to stumble into that vast and bewildering nebula called “romance.” Lucky for us, the Savage Chickens have blundered practically every sentimental moment in their adventures in courtship. Perhaps its time we learn—and laugh—at their hilarious mistakes before making our own. The Savage Chickens are joined by their robot Prod300, bawdy Timmy-Tofu, and colleague Worm, amongst other friends, as they navigate the realm of inappropriate pick-up lines, online dating profiles, excessively honest Valentine’s cards, and those scariest of words: “I love you.” Doug Savage doesn’t claim to be a relationship expert, but he does have a knack for poking fun at dating and the inevitable mishaps along the way. He began uploading sticky notes illustrated with his Savage Chicken doodles in 2005, and over 1800 yellow sticky notes and eight years later, Mr. Savage can call himself a successful cartoonist. At times absurd, sometimes wry, even occasionally insightful, but always clever and comical, this e-book original collection of his cartoons will woo anyone with amusement, even those still shuddering from their own cringe-worthy dating memories.

The office can be a dangerous place. The same old daily routine has a tendency to reduce any inspiration for fun or imagination into tedious cubicles and spreadsheets. This is precisely the situation in which Doug Savage found himself. His creativity waning away under fluorescent lights of his office job, he finally discovered his own personal antidote: doodling some cheeky chickens on yellow sticky notes. He began uploading these drawings to his Savage Chickens blog in 2005, and over 18,000 cartoons later, his chickens are as clever—and absurd—as ever. The Savage Chickens must too contend with their mundane office environment, but with a little help from their favorite colleagues and friends, it’s not difficult for them to find diversions (read: trouble). From pirates and time-travelers to Middle Earth and M.C. Hammer, from the most sinister Happy Bear you’ll ever meet to Marketing Chicken who is always attached to his martini, the Chickens’ puns and wordplay will constantly thwart your expectations in surprising and humorous ways. This e-book original collection is not just an assortment of Savage’s very best cartoons, but his very very best cartoons, composed of the wittiest, most memorable drawings to date. Bring it along on your commute to work, and suddenly the office might not seem like the death of amusement after all.
