Zombies. For a long time now they've dominated popular media. TV shows like the walking dead, books like World War Z and movies, too. Zombies have been done so much that they may be overdone. The issue with that? One of my less "anime-esc" plots is focused around zombies, but not in the usual way. Instead of being focused on a post-apoc setting and a survival narrative the story takes place during the breakdown of civilization and is focused around a mad scientist who was the one responsible for creating the zombies in the first place. It's more light-hearted in tone, has eccentric characters(some of whom have supernatural powers) and features unusual zombies with their own strange abilities. However, despite taking zombies in a different direction the story still is one about the undead. So, my question is should I wait to write this story, allowing time for zombies to become less overused and cliche' or should I not care about zombies being overused and write it anyway?
