Map Monday: What Remains, Part 2: 1961 A.D. by Zek Sora

Sorry for not posting a Map Monday last week. I just didn't have anything interesting say about the maps I shared on social media. Thankfully that hasn't been the case over the last few days and now we have something we can really sink our teeth into:
This is "What Remains, Part 2: 1961 A.D." by Zek Sora and it is a sequel of another map he did, which in turn was inspired by a mod for Victoria 2 where you can cause a zombie outbreak (O zombies. Alternate historians love you as much as they do HP Lovecraft and 1984.). In this timeline a zombie outbreak happens in the early 1890s and spreads across the globe. Those countries that survived were either island based or could rely on natural borders to protect them. Think Emberverse except with zombies (in fact I'm surprised Stirling has never written a zombie story yet. You would think it would be right up his alley.)

Back to the map, its nicely drawn, but its a big map. If you really want to see all of the small details, especially around the Mediterranean Sea, you are going to have to check out the full sized version so you can zoom in. Otherwise its just a lot of green, blue and white with some colors on the peripheral.

Honorable mentions this week go out to "Western Europe as of 2016" by Gian, "The Commonwealth of Altis" by Rebecca "Upvoteanthology" Stirling and "Map of the Louisiana S.A.R. in 2016" by ComradeFrunze.
