Dead Inside: Do Not Enter — Notes from the Zombie Apocalypse

Dead Inside: Do Not Enter
by Lost Zombies
Chronicle
2011, 160 pages, 8 x 10 x 0.5 inches
$15 Buy a copy on Amazon

Some of my favorite things about zombie movies are the details of the changed world. The dead grass, broken windows, toppled telephone poles, abandoned cars with missing wheels and trunks left open, boarded-up buildings, spent ammo shells, and other signs of struggle and desperation serve to create a fascinatingly creepy environment.

And that’s why I like Dead Inside: Do Not Enter so much. The book consists entirely of letters, hand-written warnings, and pages torn from journal entries that were written during the zombie pandemic. The notes are on matchbooks, napkins, photographs, advertisements, shopping lists, road maps, scraps of cardboard, and gum wrappers. Some of the notes are written with pen and pencil, others are written with lipstick, burnt wood, crayons, and blood.

The messages of the notes themselves tell the tale of the rise of the zombie pandemic, from tentative, joking questions about a “really bad flu,” escalating to confused panic, and later to grim acceptance of the new reality that the survivors now must live in.

In the introduction to Dead Inside, we learn that these notes had been found in a Dora the Explorer backpack. The first note presented in the book was written by the man who killed the owner of the backpack, a girl who was about 10 years old and had been bitten by a zombie (but had not yet turned into one). The man wrote “I opened her backpack and found all these notes and letters. This stuff is poisonous. No one in their right mind should read it. Reading this is like looking into the sun.” – Mark Frauenfelder

Aren’t you tired of yuri with cis oversexualized lesbians? Because tbh I really am. That’s why I decied to make a mini-masterpost of all the yuri with trans girls I know of! (Thank you to everyone who told me about some of these!)
Also let’s not speak of Kashimashi: Girl Meets Girl because I don’t really think that’s not very good trans representation tbh

Cotton Candy Love: A oneshot about a woman named Kiyoka who used to be in a relationship with another woman named Rika.She defends a young trans girl, Chiaki, when she was being bullied.
Contains: #bullying #transmisogyny #misgendering 
Ayumi and Aika:  A twoshot about a trans woman named Aika coming out to her girlfriend Ayumi, and how she accepts her as who she is.
Contains: #transmisogyny #misgendering Just another warning, it also says things like “gender identity disorder”, which implies being trans is a medical disorder, so that bit might be bothersome.
Double House: A series about Maho, a trans woman who has just moved in town and works at a bar, saves a woman  named Fujiko, who was from a rich family and decided to live on her own, she finds out they both live in the same apartment and, and it shows how their relationship grows.
Contains: #transmisogyny #slurs #transphobic slurs #transmisogynistic slurs #suicide implied #death mention #drugs #alcohol #sexism #kidnapping 


Bonus Stuff:Hourou Musuko (Anime / Manga) : Not really yuri but the protagonist is a trans girl! I dont had a summary or trigger warnings for this one becuase I haven’t watched/read it yet, but I do know it contains #transphobia and #misgendering
Lonely Wolf, Lonely Sheep: Both girls are cis in this 4 chapter manga, but they aren’t oversexualized, and the whole thing is really cute. Its about 2 girls both named Kakimoto Imari, and even though they both have the same name and same birth month and year, they both live very different lifestyles. The story goes on about how they both help each other in their troubles from the present and past. Contains: #abuse #abusive relationships #self harm
I love Mizutani Fuka’s work, and you should check out other yuri by them, such as the anthology Like a Cinderella


If you know any more, please feel free to add to the list!
