Featured Creature Halloween Zombie Outbreak: Ghost


In honor of the of the darksome holiday of ghouls I am trying an experiment to see if my pen and pad are quick enough.  From now until October 31st, the Thirteen Days of Halloween, I'll be bringing you one zombie trick-or-treater a day.

In this crisp Autumn night someone wasn't simply dressed like a zombie.  Now trick-or-treaters are wandering the night streets with a driving hunger for a very particular kind of treat.  Screams of fright and terror turn real in as the Halloween Outbreak begins.

Here we have our first victim of the outbreak.  His costume and flesh shredded by unseen attackers, he stumbles towards us.  He may seem clumsy in all that cloth, but never underestimate the strength of undead hands.  Candy discarded in the scuffle that took his life, this ravenous zombie ghost now haunts the Halloween landscape in search of other sweet edibles.

Thanks for the support! :-)
I discovered how much gore I can take with this series. That is, I suppose, a result for the experiment. I guess ya gotta learn to walk before you can run in anything. :-)
