Zombie Outbrick: Episode 59

And so we learn exactly who it was that passed away in the darkened office...

This episode was written at least twice. The first time around, I felt the script was very good. However, after mysteriously losing that copy of the script, I had to rush to recreate the script for this episode from memory, so hopefully it's still as good as the original would have been.

This episode makes use of yet another first for Zombie Outbrick - a 5-panel layout, with a wide panel in the center row. I felt this extra space was needed for the Boss's rememberance of Leonard Ross.

It was very difficult to decide between the two pictures I had taken for the "flashback" with the younger Boss and his coworker as he was just moving into his office, still unpacking his belongings from his cardboard box. The first would have given us a good look at the Boss's face, before he grew his mustache, but I think the second shot (what you see in the right side of panel 3) had more depth to it, and so I chose it instead.

Let me know what you think of this episode, especially the third panel.

Great job bringing down the intensity of the argument at the time. I think the boss' flashback panel was executed nicely, I like the faded effect.

Thanks, Oonie! I think the Boss's rememberance of Leonard should help the Policeman and Chris change their perspective a bit.

And I'm glad to hear you like the way the flashback was done.

You know, we were all waiting for zombies to come into this strip, and they did and thats great. But now that they're here, it's as if they appear one every 15 episodes.
Nevertheless, good story

I hear you, Monkey. It's always my intention to focus on the story and characters more than the actual zombies themselves, but this comic could use some more action. I'm glad you do appreciate the story part of it.

There'll be more zombies soon enough... ;)

Hah, perhaps I'll have to add an extra panel on to each episode that depicts zombies devouring someone, with or without any connection to the story.

Sounds like a plan.

I rather like it, even if the pacing doesn't see us facing "enough zombies" or the characters fully realizing what they're dealing with yet.

Written rather well.

Thanks for the support, Silver Fox, I'm glad you think the story is well written!

I'll have to do my best to better balance it with zombie carnage from now on.
