I draw the webcomic Manly Guys Doing Manly Things and work on cartoons you might see on TV sometimes.
One of my favourite premises for a zombie story is in the book “Feed”, where the mainstream media collapsed on itself after the zombies broke out and they took a very conservative “keep calm carry on, it’s just a hoax by those darned kids” but all the bloggers took a proactive “This is what is happening, this is where it’s happening, this is how you can kill them” approach. The book follows the first team of bloggers invited to follow a presidential candidate’s campaign trail and probably puts more emphasis on how peoples’ growing mistrust of the media - especially in the younger generations - reshaped the standards for sharing information online than it does on the actual zombies.
This the book in question? Between your description and the plug that its “shunning misogynistic horror tropes in favor of genuine drama and pure creepiness”, that actually sounds like an interesting read.
Yeah, that’s it. I dunno about “shunning misogynistic horror tropes” because that feels like it implies active gender war stuff, but I didn’t get any of that (granted I’m only about a third of the way in). Mostly just a story about a zombie journalist and her brother trying to claw their way up through a highly competitive blogosphere.
