I didn’t create Bricks of the Dead with the intention of retiring to a private island made of money with the profits. The comic was designed to entertain and inform the public about the very real threat of a zombie apocalypse. Of course there are some very real costs associated with producing such quality content, like website hosting, little plastic bricks, and contractors building my underground anti-zombie compound.

The good things in life may be free, but the guy running the cement mixer needs payment up front if he’s going to pour the concrete for my subterranean command center.

So if you’re enjoying Bricks of the Dead, consider making a small donation to help offset the costs and help keep this award-winning* comic in production.

So what do you get out of the deal? Well, other than a good feeling, not much. Higher donations (let’s say north of twenty bucks) can get a cameo appearance in the comic if they’re so inclined, however their cameo will almost certainly be devoured by the walking dead.

Just noticed you put up ‘a Store’ I would buy from you if I had money.. Hell I would donate willingly if I owned that thing just above. But! WHEN I DO OWN IT.. I shall be buying.. One of those fancy smanceh movies.. OR.. I’ll forget and instead buy Skyrim.. YOUR CHANCES ARE GOOD… But also bad.. GOOD LUCK.. But no really your doing an awesome job, and anyone who sees this page.. And owns money unlike I, you should totesly buy something or donate to help him out. I’ve been reading a few other comics and as far as I know.. This shit is expensive to run, adds help out, but not as much as a few kind hearts showing Dave that we love ’em.

Much appreciated, Calicade. I figured I’d give the aStore (it’s an Amazon thing, I’d get a small kickback for any purchases made) thing a try. I still need to add a lot to it, but I think it’s coming along well so far. Lots of good books and films to choose from.

The comic is expensive to run, but I have a lot of fun doing it. If I ran this thing like a business I would have had to shut down ages ago. If people want to donate to the cause, well that’s just fantastic. But I understand that money is tight these days so I certainly don’t push it too much.

If you want to make a donation you can use the paypal form above. If you can’t use PayPal for whatever reason, shoot me an email using the contact form and we’ll figure something out.

Hey dave, if i gave you 10 dollars, could i get an apearence in the comic as one of stewarts friends?

Reply

It would probably be a long time before I could do anything like that in the comic. For something like that, it would need to be a flashback sort of thing, and I’m nowhere near doing Stewart’s backstory.

thanks, i even have your face so i thought that you could come in the comic at certain parts. I guess it a comic about a kid who lost his bro when he went to an army wall, the army wall only had a farmer on the other side of it, he’s pretty much telling his background. but i don’t know how to make my own website or the special effects. Some help would be nice

Making your own website is something you’d want to build to. For starting out with webcomics, I’d probably recommend a free comic hosting site like Comic Fury: http://comicfury.com/

oh okay. Thanks for the advice, you know what would be funny though? If Murphy was the guy from the termanator, the cyborg musley guy, and said to stewart “come with me if you want to live”

That’s a significantly more involved process. I use Photoshop for everything. It’s got a learning curve and it’s expensive. I’d Google some free comic making tools.

Hey there, AC. If you’re looking to something similar to Photoshop for free, I’ve heard the GIMP is pretty good. You may be able to use that for editing your comics, although you’d need to learn how to use it first (but I’m pretty sure there’s a lot of online tutorials for that, though.)

I wish you good luck with your comic-making endeavors.

Well, they’re roughly to scale with minifigures. If anything, I would think they’re a little too big.

Hey, hold on, AC – isn’t this the “Support Us” page, not the “Support You” page? 😉

I’m mostly joking, I don’t mean to be that snobbish. At the same time, I can’t help but feel the comments you’re making aren’t exactly relevant to this particular page…

Anyway, I’ve never heard of Photoscape before, but it looks pretty good to me after a quick search. I’ll remind you that another photo editing program to consider is the GIMP (which can also be found after a quick search). It’s essentially a free alternative to Photoshop.

Once again, I wish you good luck with your comic-making endeavors, AC.
