“If we can defeat them, then we can go home.”
Homer has held down many jobs in his long life. He has sailed the wild seas, fought for country and for money, and now he’s an outlaw. He’s found it suits him; it would be wonderful to stay in the forest, stealing what he needs and passing out his leftovers. But the zombies are making that impossible. When they first overran his forest encampment, Homer grabbed who he could and fled deeper into the woods. He’d keep fading deeper and deeper in – but the zombies just keep coming, and he keeps losing more men. He has to strike back.
