ZOMBIE OUTBRICK IS BACK!

After a long drought, a storm of new episodes of Zombie Outbrick is finally gathering! A new episode came out today for the first time in quite a while, and they will continue to do so regularly (on Mondays and Fridays, as before.)

Along with the return to regular updates, there have been quite a few improvements and changes to the Zombie Outbrick website.

Readers returning to this site may notice that the dropdown “Comics” menu in the navigation bar is now properly aligned on the page when it appears – regardless of whether it is being viewed in Safari or Internet Explorer. (Hopefully it is the same with other browsers; please contact me if this is not the case.)

Also, the code this website was running to handle smilies has been optimized, and should cut page loading-time in half! To get more technical, the previous version of the script was loading the entire webpage, reading it, swapping out colons and parentheses for :) , and re-loading the new version of the entire page. Essentially, each page would have to load twice before you could see it. The new script looks only at comments and blog posts, so the rest of the page only loads once.

As of April 4th, 2012, Zombie Outbrick is one year old. Two cameras, thirty subscribers, and fifty-two episodes later, it has become the comic we know today.

In other news, Zombie Outbrick is now on Facebook! Blog posts and other updates will now also be announced on our Facebook page, so you’ll always be up to date on the latest Zombie Outbrick news.

I wanted to thank all of you who so diligently, patiently, and loyally kept coming back to this website to check for new episodes. I can’t identify daily site visitors, but I can certainly see how many there have been. An astonishing number of people came to this website despite the lack of updates, and I am positive that not all of you were new visitors coming here for the first time. Thank you for sticking with Zombie Outbrick through a difficult and busy time. Your loyalty and patience has finally paid off!
