Item ID

A comic book is a literature item.


A comic book reduces the player's level of unhappiness, stress, and boredom. Once used, it is effectively 'consumed' and removed from the player's inventory.


A comic book can be used as a fuel for a heat source, and lasts for 10 minutes.


The loot distributions can be found in the table(s) below.

ComicBook distribution Show / Hide
Effective chance calculations are based off of default loot settings, and median zombie density. The higher the density of zombies in an area, the higher the effective chance of an item spawning. Chance is also influenced by the lucky and unlucky traits.
