Zombie Cliche Lookout: Burning Bridges
Once again, I’m going to be banging the drum of working together in the face of a zombie uprising. Seriously, in the event of zombies, we’re going to need to cooperate. I’ll admit that zombies are pretty unlikely, but still, it never hurts to be prepared, right?
I’m making the point here because today’s comic is about splitting up. Not everyone can get along, and not all groups can come together. Sometimes, things just don’t work out. That said, you still don’t want more enemies than you can handle. There’s no reason to end things on bad terms if you don’t absolutely have to. A simple polite word can earn you an ally, or at least keep things from getting too out-of-hand.
That being said, there is still only so much one can do. I doubt Clark or Barb would be in a huge hurry to help the other out of a jam. I don’t think either of them would be outright hostile, but something has definitely been lost over the course of their short relationship.
About this Episode:
Aaaaand that’s it for Barb and Clark for a bit. I’m going to take next week off to get prepared for the next story arc, where we’ll be going back to our original cast at the cabin in the woods. I know, I know, taking a week off sucks. I’ve been trying to avoid it by working ahead, but life has been extremely busy lately.
I will, however, have a new review posted next week. It’s not a comic, but, hey, new content is new content.
Update – July 24th!
I mentioned last week that I was going to take a week off to get caught up. While I was scripting this weekend, I realized that I needed more time. I haven’t been too happy with the last few arcs of the story, and I know a few of you haven’t either. I want to review the series and take a more strategic approach to the next set of episodes and do this right. That means I need a bit more time.
How much time? I’m not really sure at this point. I think the story of Bricks of the Dead is reaching the point where I need to bring it to an end, but I want that to be as satisfying an end as possible. With that in mind, I’m planning to take August off, and pick things back up in September. If I need a bit more time, I’ll post an update.
As always, thanks for your patience.
