Zombie Cliche Lookout: Turning Tides
When it comes to the war against the zombies, victory is never assured. But a battle? Well now, that’s a different story. And when the zombies are actually helping you against your other enemies? That just sweetens the deal.
At any rate, every battle – at least those in fiction – has some sort of big defining turning point. The point at which the good guys are at their lowest, and then suddenly seize an opportunity and take the offensive. And sometimes, things go back and forth a whole bunch of times (Return of the King, for instance). Once they cross this point, the bad guys days are numbered, at least for the time being. You never know when the bad guys will show back up later on.
About this Episode:
A lot is going to happen in these next few episodes, so bear with me a bit on the timeline. While Barb is doing her thing in today’s strip, other things are happening that are going to be revealed in future episodes. It’s a little more complex than what I usually try to do in Bricks of the Dead, but it sounded like a fun challenge. If it doesn’t work they way I’m hoping, well, sorry.

Discussion Question: Pets in the Zombie Apocalypse
What role will pets have during the zombie apocalypse? Companions? Guards? Early warning systems? Food on the hoof?
I’m a dog person myself, and would definitely want to keep one around. We don’t have a family dog now (damn renting), so I guess I’d need to befriend a stray or something like that.
