Nah. I've seen too many cutesy zombie flicks where that was the case. "Oh, wow! It's just like [insert cult movie / comic book / video game / pop-culture reference here]."
Well-armed and out of shape? That's what the bad guys/zombie food look like in every comic, right?
Maybe generally true, but I know a group of nerds who would definitely be survivors - members of Valkyrie, the Western Martial Arts Assembly. They got the gear and the skills!
Maybe not zombies, but the comic book guys saved the day in The Lost Boys.
They eat the nerds first. Soft flesh fattened up from inactivity, very tasty.
Yeah, I've read Crossed too.
There's Zoey in L4D... does that count? I mean L4D campaigns got that movie feel... >.>
Shaun of the Dead.
