:A TALE OF ZOMBIES VS ALIENS

THE STORY SO FAR… The zombies run amok in Carbon Falls, slaughtering or turning much of the town. The survivors have holed up in Hux Robertson’s ranch home, but the zombies, through sheer numbers, are closer than ever to smashing their way in. Hux himself, along with friend Jerrold and alien Bemis, has donned an alien suit and unearthed a weapons cache which he originally hid in his recently deceased father’s grave. Good so far? There’s more – Lew Dawson, an ATF agent who infiltrated the town in search of those same weapons, discovered even more: space aliens, zombies, and now a traincar of mass destruction, set by one of Carbon Falls’ own: Randy Roy Grist. Grist and his men overpowered Lew Dawson, bound him to the train car filled with explosives, and sent the whole kit and caboodle rushing toward Hux’s house – their last-ditch effort to rid the town of aliens, zombies, and even Hux and those sympathetic to his more tempered cause. Hux, Jerrold and Bemis see this as they skywalk their way back toward the house, but are presumably too far away to stop the runaway train from colliding with his family home…
