Face it: there’s a zombie version of every pop culture icon out there, from Superman to Scooby Doo. The whole walking dead image has become so deeply embedded in the American mediascape that it simply can’t be avoided. And luckily, some of the iterations or just plain beautiful. Beautifully weird, yets, but beautiful. Take a look at this, brought to us from most excellent horror author and internet presence Richard Kadrey, and the product of the remarkably weird Midjourney AI. And that’s “A EYE,” as in “Artificial Intelligence, not “Al,” like Weird Al Yankovich.
Midjourney isn’t a person. We think. It’s been defined by some as, “An art robot you chat with in Discord. You type stuff to her and she responds with magical images. So! Be prepared to use Discord and have your account set up in advance.” You can learn more and sign up through its website here/or its Twitter account here, and you can join a helpful Facebook fangroup that will tell you more here. We’re adding Midjourney to the Guide based on this zombie image, but its apparently infinite range of horrific imagery goes way, way beyond that, and we’re scared. Truly scared. Enjoy…?
