Zombie Cliche Lookout: Meanwhile…
In order to keep things interesting, battles in fiction have multiple fronts (battles in reality have multiple fronts for entirely different reasons). This allows the storyteller to craft up a number of distinct stories that are all going on simultaneously. Conventional armies will likely press the attack at multiple places to split the attention of defenders, possibly even feinting to draw them away from certain areas.
Zombie, of course, are not that smart. Rather than strategically attacking in multiple places, zombies will simply chase after whatever potential food source they happen to see. The trouble with them is that, because of their numbers and lack of organization, they’ll tend to stream in from all over, including places you might not have expected to have them come from. This can lead to some pretty nasty surprises.
About this Episode:
I figured it was about time to check back in on Murphy, whom we haven’t seen since this little fight started several episodes ago. This will also be the last part of the zombie attack, so those of you getting sick of the action (and my frequent continuity errors) will be glad to know we’re getting back to normal very soon.
The site will update normally this week, but next week I’m going to be taking a few days off, starting on Wednesday. The reason for this is that I have to have a follow-up surgery on Thursday to remove the large screw from my ankle, which I broke back in February. That screw needs to be removed because it’s about four inches long and prone to break if left in. I’m going to ask the doctor to save it for me, so I’ll show a picture if he does.
The recovery time should be pretty short, but I can’t guarantee that I’ll be able to post a comic on the following Monday. If anyone has any fan art or guest strips, let me know.
Discussion Question: No One Would Miss Murphy, Right?
I mean, right?
