Zombie Outbrick: Episode 20

Well, it looks like the group has finally found the source of the moaning. What will that mean, exactly? Well, we'll just have to wait and see.



If you look at the layout, you'll notice that it's a new 5-panel layout, which has never before been used in the history of Zombie Outbrick.

There have been other 5-panel episodes (and there will probably be more), but usually the wide panel is at the top. As you can see here, I've moved it to the end for dramatic effect.

(I did this to take the place of the thickly-outlined square I use for last-panel emphasis on most of my 6-panel layouts.)

For that last panel, the widescreen setting on my new camera (which had been a problem before) was quite useful.

So what do you think? Do you like this new version of the layout?

Ohmygosh, shoot it! D:

And I like the layout. The large panel at the end definitely adds some nice dramatic effect. :)

I'm glad you like it, Lee. I was worried the big panel at the end would sort of throw off the feel of the layout... But I suppose I'm probably over-complicating things!

And we'll see if the characters follow your advice. ;)

"Good Heavens! A half-dead bloody body is crawling this way. Come, let us casually approach it regardless of the fact that another half-dead bloody body just tried to kill us! You know, this all reminds me of a zombie apocalypse movie I saw one time. Coincidence, eh?" Love it, man! Just as I always imagined a zombie apocalypse.

Thanks, Doctor N! I'm glad you're enjoying it. (I mean, who would ever say, "Oh, they're obviously zombies," in real life?)

And I love how you managed to write that quote with a sophisticated British accent! If I ever have a "reader quotes" page with selected comments, that comment will definitely be on there.

I like it. It is very dramatic with the person/body/zombie crawling towards them and they're just standing there watching.

Thanks, Silver Fox! I'm glad you like it.

I was thinking, "What would I do if I heard moaning, then saw a bloody person/body/zombie crawling down the hallway? For a split second, probably nothing."

I'd imagine the group is pretty stunned right about now...

I apologize if I've robbed you of a good night's sleep... at least you seem to be pretty ecxited about it! ;)

I put a lot of work into that last panel, I'm glad it turned out so well.

Seriously....your photography and MOC skills are getting better and better as time goes.

Thanks very much ZombieMutts.

I look back at the first few episodes from time to time, and I'm surprised at how grainy and blurry they are! Until I went back and looked at them, I hadn't realized how much I'd improved since then.

I'll definitely have to keep working on both my photography and MOC skills.

I love your comics. I always wanted to rate and comment on them but I don't know what to say and I'm too shy. Anyways, I hope none of them get killed, yet.

Thanks, ComicFox30! It's good to see you saying something. It's ok, don't be shy! It's always good to hear from my readers. ;)

As for what to say, you could always say that you liked (or didn't like) an episode, or take a guess as to where the story is going, etc.

And we'll see who ends up surviving in these next few episodes...

Thanks again for leaving a comment!
