About this Episode:
If you pay any attention to the number at the top of the strip, then you’ll realize that this is our fiftieth comic. While that might not sound like too much, it’s a pretty big deal to me. I’ve had a lot of fun with the comic so far, and I’ve got a lot of ideas for the future.

Thank you all for you interest in and support of Bricks of the Dead. I hope you’ll continue to stick around to see what I’ve got planned for my next fifty strips..

To celebrate this milestone I’ve created a (very) little game, which you can play here. Enjoy!

Zombie Cliché Lookout:
Willful ignorance and denial are powerful coping mechanisms. You don’t have to face the untold horror in the next room if you just completely ignore it or somehow convince yourself it doesn’t exist. Simply tell yourself that it’s childish to be afraid and ignore the fact that fear is a well-honed survival instinct that animals developed to help them avoid danger. Suppressing all that dread can help you get through trauma, but it can also bit you in the ass when you fail to prepare for a problem you’ve convinced yourself doesn’t exist.

  1. I think convincing yourself it doesnt exist is a bad idea. Hide or well or go out with movie action hero sound effects fine, but keep aware of it, dont try to convince your self its nonexistent. If you really think it aint there/ doesnt exist then well “Ignorance is bliss. Until it kills you.” as some one said.

    • Agreed. The willful ignorance thing is – I assume – done at a subconscious level.

  2. i love how youve made this like a small survival guide with lego examples of each cock up pople do
    your very talented dave and im lovign your comic thanks 🙂

    • Thanks Glennocide! It’s been a hell of a lot of fun to do so far.

  3. Happy very belated 50th comic! I know it’s a lot of work, and at this point I can’t imagine waiting a day or few for the next strip…

    • That’s the danger of getting caught up. Luckily for you, you’ve got almost 150 more to go, not counting bonus episodes.
