Better Zombies Through Physics 03

Join us for chills, thrills, and pulse-pounding scientific breakthroughs as we embark on a tour of the Quantum Zombie, Inc. facility, courtesy of a guy who bears a striking resemblance to famed scientist and cat-lover Erwin Schrödinger. Hijinks, hilarity, and an abundance of felines await you in Tor.com’s newest comic strip.

Links to previous episodes are here.

Is this supposed to be funny? Cause the comic is kinda like a zombie itself. It might not be dead, but it sure doesn't have any life to it.

PS Captchas are annoying enough, but does it have to flutter?

this is a fantastic comic, to bad we get only one page a week. I can't wait for the next one.

I am finding this decently entertaining, only in so much as I took my fair share of quantum physics in high school and college, and now it is fun to see it put to real world, practical uses.

If I had a criticism, it would be the perception of pacing. Perhaps once it is fully released and can be read in a single sitting, it won't feel as much, but it reminds me of some of the issues of epic webcomics (a la errant story by M. Poe). A single page sometimes just doesn't move along anything, even if it is pretty. In a sitdown and enjoy fashion, you can brush past the page no problem. When it is forcibly paced by an update schedule, you sometimes get let down or bored.

So, that said, I'll reserve judgement for after the entire comic is done. Right now, it could be epically good or an epic flop.

It is both Epically Good and an Epic Flop.

Smeared in equal proportions...

It's a little slow paced, but given its proposed audience the physics is ok/not too challenging.
Agree with David Oakes. No matter the rest of the comic's contents, it's better than anything on Facebook. :P

Before this gets much longer, for convenience sake I strongly suggest the addition of a "previous" "next" link bar rather than making people go back to the table of contents to get to the next strip, as is done with most web comics.

OH, that was brilliant. Despite my lopsided phrasing it was, of course, the link bar that is done with most web comics.
