- "Man behind the Curtain" Drew
- Well, here's yours truly. The name's Drew, in case you were wondering. The Niche is my personal site, while the comic-in-progress is a partnered effort with Don, a lifelong friend of mine. We collaborate on the stories, but my partner's the writer in the outfit while I am the illustrator. This is currently little more than a side project, but we hope to make something of it.

ZotB: zombie jerky
I've seen this circulating on a couple of horror blogs, so it seemed like a delectable little tidbit to share on the Niche. If you're familiar with Japanese merchandising, you're likely aware of its pop style trend and colorful flair. "Zombie Meat", blue jerky averaging at ¥399 (yen) or $4.50 USD per pack, is no exception. Considering how zombies are constantly making meals out of us, it's about time we turned the tables on them.
Maybe you're asking, "But why blue jerky?" A valid question, given that this hue isn't the first color to come to mind for zombie flesh. Personally, I tend to assume that it's going to be green, however in 'Dawn of the Dead' (1978) Romero's zombies are a shade of blue-gray. Though I can't defend the afro, unless it's another kickback to the seventies.
