My Reprint: Essential Howard the Duck vol. 1
The title is probably taken from the 1968 zombie film "Night of the Living Dead".

The title is a reference to Man-Thing #12 (also written by Steve Gerber), "Song-Cry of the Living-Dead Man", another story about a character having an existential crisis. (Ted Sallis, aka Man-Thing, is listed as "consulting schizo" on the splash page).
"Night of the Living Dead" was used for a story title by Steve Gerber, but it was Man-Thing #5 ("Night of the Laughing Dead").

Such excellent work from Gerber.

The outro punchline is probably swiped from the Kilgore Trout novel Venus on the Half Shell.
