Zombie Cliche Lookout: Breaking Stuff is Fun
One of the big reasons that imagining yourself in a post-apocalyptic world is fun is that there aren’t any rules. Don’t get me wrong, there are still things that are going to control your actions, like having to feed yourself and being able to escape from roaming packs of zombies. But all that pain-in-the-butt law and order stuff goes right out the window. If you’re having a rough day, take out some of your frustrations by busting out a few windows. Feeling weird? Drag all the mannikins from the nearest department store out into the street and setup bizarre scenes with them. Run with scissors! The sky’s the limit.
About this Episode:
I’m not quite sure how of how much of the “barricading the cabin” storyline I’m going to show in the comic. I have a lot of other things I want to hit, and – while I loves me some people hastily erecting zombie-defense barricades – I don’t want to slow down the flow of the story too much. Thus, we have this little interlude wherein I introduce the fact that Russel and his new carpentry assistants are going to be in charge of securing the place. If I want to show it, I can. If not, I can just have the other survivors arrive back to a now-secure (somewhat) cabin.
It’s nice to have options.
Discussion Question: Collectible Minifigs
I’m a pretty big fan of LEGO®’s Collectible Minifigures. So far, I’ve managed to grab at least one complete set of every series (plus a bunch of extras). I’m curious to see what they come up with next. I thought it might be fun to see what sort of ideas you guys have. They don’t have to be zombie-related, just whatever you think would be cool.
A couple ideas I’ve had were a Royal Canadian Mounted Policemen, Sasquatch, and a retro-looking Robot (think Robby the Robot here).
