Zombie Cliché Lookout:
If you haven’t already checked it out, Zombie Squad is a hell of a group. Their mission is to get people to prepare for disasters, but their approach to this goal is unique. In order to be prepared for anything nature and the economy can throw at you, prepare for zombies. After all, if you’re prepared to deal with living long term in a world of walking, ambulatory corpses, then a tornado or a hurricane should be a cake walk.
So you may have noticed that this episode has an actual title. The site has been plateauing on traffic lately, so I’m trying to take some steps to increase Bricks of the Dead‘s visibility on search engines. That means more textual content in the comics, and more mentions of search engine keywords like “zombies”. Fun stuff, right? Also, the Zombie Cliché Lookout is now a headline. SEO!
And speaking of fun stuff, how is everyone doing on the 16×16 Challenge? No entries have been posted yet, but I’m sure everyone is hard at work.
Discussion Question: Preparing for Zombies
I’d like to try something new. This was suggested in the comments a while back and I’ve been meaning to get to it for ages now. From now on (unless it’s just a massive failure, of course) I’ll post a discussion question for each comic, and hopefully it’ll get the comments buzzing, or whatever noise it is that comics make.
Today’s question is: “It seems like there’s a lot of crossover between people who are into zombies and people who are into preparing to survive. As fans of the genre, what sort of preparations have you made to live in a world of the walking dead?”
To clarify, preparation is a broad term. Exercising to be physically fit is one way to prepare, hoarding toilet paper and ammo is another. It’s a veritable rainbow of preparedness.
