Zombie Cliche Lookout: Parting is Such Sweet Sorrow
Breaking up, as they say, is hard to do. Even in short relationships (and I’m not just talking about romantic relationships here), you’ve built something together, and tearing that asunder to go your separate ways is fairly traumatic. If your relationship is a little deeper than than, if it’s weathered a storm or two and stood the test of years, then splitting up is all the harder. Then there are the zombies, who tend to make everything more difficult. If your relationship has survived zombies, and guided you all through safely, then you’ve built something seemingly unassailable. Breaking that apart is going to be really tough. It would be, one imagines, like the bonds forged by soldiers in wartime.
About this Episode:
Almost be accident, Murphy has become something of an outsider in this team meeting. While everyone else is sort of clustered around the center of the room, he hands out on the periphery. One of the big reasons for that is that I’ve only build half a room. Murphy can stand up against the wall and still be shot from a variety of angles. The characters opposite him have to move in front of the fridge in order to be photographed from the front.
I sort of teased this earlier in the week, but this will be the last new episode of Bricks of the Dead until the new year. The comic will resume our normal schedule on January 2nd, 2013 (provided, of course, that the world doesn’t end at some point today). I will, however, be posting a holiday-themed comic on Monday, so don’t miss it. I hope you all have a fantastic holiday season.
Discussion Question: Holiday Plans
Since this is the last episode before Christmas and New Years, I’m curious what everyone’s plans are to celebrate the holidays (if indeed you do celebrate them).
I’ll be pretty boring this year. I burned up pretty much all my vacation time between the move and the birth of my daughter, so I’ve only got a couple days off. I’ll be spending them with the family, opening gifts and eating way, way too much.
