Zombie Cliche Lookout: Hindsight 20/20
Being able to make a quick decision in the middle of a crisis is a very important quality for leaders to have. After all, not making a decision is often worse than making the wrong decision. Of course, no one is perfect, and even the best leader is going to make a bad call sooner or later. Bad leaders? Well, you really don’t want to stick with bad leaders very long. You know, if you can avoid it.
One of the problems with bad decisions is that (provided they don’t get you eaten by zombies) you have to live with them. And if you have people in your group that maybe disagreed with that decision beforehand? Well, you’re going to hear about it. Possibly a lot.
And even if they agreed at the time, they might forget about that eventually.
About this Episode:
One of the more frustrating aspects of doing a LEGO comic is that I don’t have access to unlimited bricks, nor do I have the space to store all assembled models. Sometimes, that can be a pain. One of those times was for today’s episode. I needed the 1×4 tan bricks that make up the floor here for my Christmas episode, so I needed to partially disassemble this set. Because I’m just not very bright, I didn’t bother taking photos of the set before, which meant piecing bits together (including where everyone is standing) based on reviewing previous comics. Fun!
But then, I only have myself to blame.
Discussion Question: 2013 Predictions
The so-called “Mayan Doomsday” has come and gone, and nothing much happened. Most of us weren’t surprised. However, one positive thing that the 2012 craze brought was a whole lot of post-apocalyptic themed entertainment. I imagine the well is going to dry up a bit now. The school shooting is also a major contributing factor, since the media is – quite literally – gun-shy.
The question is, how are these two big events going to affect post-apocalyptic themed books, movies, comics, and games?
