Post The Walking Dead, power fantasies focusing on sweatily hunting down the undead with a crossbow in hand have increased by 438%.

This is a statistic I invented for the purposes of this introduction, but the point still stands: thanks to Norman Reedus and his penchant for lodging bolts in the brains of the undead, crossbows are pretty cool right now.

NERF's timing on this couldn't be better, with the recent release of the ZombieStrike Dreadbolt, which is basically Norman Reed: The Nerf Blaster.
