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.
*Actual award may not exist
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.
Where do I send the money?
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.
I would donate, but i don’t have any money, sorry dave
No worries, AC.
thanks dave, ill still cheak out your great comic every day. over and over
Much appreciated, AC.
Hey dave, if i gave you 10 dollars, could i get an apearence in the comic as one of stewarts friends?
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.
meh thats okay, but i just made a pretty cool lego guy, he looked like a teenager and then i thougt of stewart and then had this idea. oh well maybe another time
maybe i should make my own web comic, in fact I’ve already started
Excellent! Always room for more in the pool. Good luck.
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/
thanks for the advice Dave, i should cheak it out sometime
how do you post pictures online? I dont know how, the websites great though
Use a service like Flickr or Photobucket.
im not sure what your talking about
You post pictures online by uploading them to sites like Flickr.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”
wait how do you edit your pictures? like the blood and the word bubbles
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.
okay, thanks anyway
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.
wow thanks. i was just about to give up, im following most of daves advice, im even using brick arms
hey person, i kind of visited your site, i love name ”zombie outbrick” i never wouldve thought something like that, oh and hey, cheak out ”the tribe in a few weeks
you know ive tried brickarms but the weapons are kinda small
Well, they’re roughly to scale with minifigures. If anything, I would think they’re a little too big.
for once im going to have to disagree with you dave, i guess thats your own opinion though
hey, what if the people who kidnapped sam were spying on them with cameras and stuff
you know, my webcomic has one problem, i dont know how to edit my pictures, (wordbanks, cropping. etc) otherwise, i might actualy be on episode 37 by now, i need a little bit of help
Do a search for photoscape. It’s a free downloadable program and very good for editing photos.
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.
thanks dude, by the way, when’s the comic going to start back up again?
Which comic, Zombie Outbrick or Bricks of the Dead?
nevermind, i ment zombie outbrick.
