Vignettes are short comic-like forms which Atom Zombie Smasher uses to provide elements of the back story. Most of them the game makes available, one at a time at random, at the beginning of some game months. There are three exceptions to this rule which are always shown at a certain time during a campaign:

  • "Intro" is displayed when a new campaign is launched
  • "Epilogue" appears at the end of a campaign - regardless of who won
  • an unnamed, one-panel vignette is shown after reaching the "Zed Mutates" milestone on the victory track

The table below lists all the vignettes, major characters appearing in them and their plot summaries.
