Episode 461: Enough Already
Zombie Cliche Lookout: Dead to Rights
While this trope is more at home in action flicks, it’s certainly no stranger to horror and zombie stories. I’m talking, of course, about when one character is completely surrounded and outgunned by another group. The interesting thing about this trope is that the character in question can be a good guy or a bad guy.
Whether they’re a good or bad guy usually affects how they react to such a situation. A typical good guy is likely to assess the situation, realize that his/her options are limited, and surrender. A badass anti-hero, on the other hand, might just stand off against the group until some sort of third party comes around and decides things one way or another. Bad guys, on the other hand, are going to turn the tables. They might pretend to surrender to get into the good guys’ base. Or they’re just slaughter everyone and walk away unscathed.
About this Episode:
I’m not sure how well it comes across here, but the other characters are slowly encircling Sam, making things that much tougher for him.
Oh, and that Jesus thing was an April Fool’s thing. He’s not going to be around again, other than for special occasions like everyone’s favorite character (Scrimshaw). I think Jesus and Scrimshaw are going to get along well.
Discussion Question: I Need Your Questions
As I’ve mentioned a few times now, I’m trying to build up my YouTube channel a bit, so I thought it might be fun to do a question and answer feature. Nothing fancy here, just me answering your questions about making the comic, zombies, LEGO®, or whatever else you happen to come up with. Before I start doing this, I want to prime the pump a bit and get a dozen or so questions to start with.
So, what do you want to know?
