We Shall Overcome
Hey there, crime kids. Happy Hump Day. It's time once again to take a trip to the dark side, where your most violent fantasies become sins of the flesh, right here, where the hardboiled action is non-stop, at the coolest crime joint in cyberspace ... at That Killing Feeling.
In Chapter 15 of ZOMBIE & JULIET, Merk huddles with Brick Cosmo and his revolutionaries to plans their sneak attack on the Republic of Manhattan ...
INT. BOARDED-UP CONVENIENCE STORE - NIGHT
Brick and the gang sit around a big
plywood table set up in the back of the store.
Everyone has had injections of the vaccine
and are now healed. Healthy-looking.
(stares at Reno)
I haven’t felt this good in a LONG time.
I’ve actually got WOOD.
Keep it in your pants, buster.
You know I only eat fish.
Settle down, children.
We’ve got serious business to discuss.
Well, now that we’re well, we
need to rethink our plan of attack.
What do you need to rethink?
Well, the original plan was to
blow a hole through the walled-up tunnel,
and then the zombies, smelling clean,
uninfected flesh, would invade the island
and kill everybody --
Which now would include us.
How were you going to blow
a hole in the tunnel?
We got us a surface-to-air missile
in a garage down the street.
Where did you get that?
Nearby military base was having
a fire sale. Literally.
I think your plan can still work.
Sure. We blow a hole in the tunnel
and go in BEFORE them.
But they’ll follow us --
So we kill ‘em.
But they’ll be another wave behind them.
And another, and another --
Yeah, but once we get through, we’ve
got all of Manhattan to hide.
Yeah. And it’ll be complete bedlam.
And then all we’ve gotta do is get to
the media uptown so they can spread the word
about the vaccine. We’ll be heroes --
The man’s a genius --
Told you he was smart.
All in favor?
Everyone raises their hands.
I’m really starting to get into
this revolutionary thing.
People have the POWER.
United we CAN.
We shall OVERCOME.
Give me liberty, or give me DEATH.
Liberty, equality, FRATERNITY.
Let freedom RING.
Everyone looks at Merk expectantly.
You say you want a revolution, well you know,
we all want to change the world --
