What Could Have Been: The comic was initially envisioned as a quirky horror/comedy/zombie comic where there were animal students that killed each other like it was no big deal (which was considered Early-Installment Weirdness). But then the story eventually progressed into being about silly animals in a silly school, before finally settling into something a tad more light-hearted though also becoming Darker and Edgier at the same time as a result of extensive development and detail. The characters were also aged up from elementary students to high school students.
Write What You Know: Many of the themes in Zoophobia come from its creator Vivienne Medrano's own life and personal background. Native American and Hispanic themes are prevalent throughout the storyline and various character designs.
The characters Afkinz, GŁnter, and Eiglet were originally designed and created by the artist, DollCreep. Vivienne purchased the characters to use within Zoophobia's offical canon.
