Zombie Outbrick: Episode 64

blockcomics
27th Aug 2012, 1:05 AM

It seems the living corpse in the elevator has quite a familiar face...


If you don't recognize the elevator zombie, then check out some of the earlier episodes of Zombie Outbrick, especially Episode 5. Long-time readers may remember that Mr. Ashford's dead body was missing in the last panel of Episode 19 - now we know where it went.

I redid the blood effects in the last panel several times before I was satisfied with them - what does everyone think? Are they an improvement compared to past effects?

Let me know what you think of this episode.

Looks like the boss is dead.

With the blood effects, I think that they are pretty good. personally, I think the shine on it makes it blend with the LEGO bricks better.

The Boss isn't necessarily dead - after all, the magnum is a pretty powerful weapon. ;)

And thanks, I hadn't thought of it that way before. The shininess does fit the Lego feel better.

whilst it is fairly powerful, I don't think an off-center gut-shot will be to incredibly effective against the undead

Idiot, you're supposed to shoot them in the head!

Yes - but how is the Boss supposed to know that? Even in a world where zombies permeated pop culture as much as they do ours, the Boss seems like the kind of guy who wouldn't know much about them anyway. ;)

And he can kill Mr. Ashford again!

But even if it's a torso shot, it's enough they could probably get past him and into the elevator.

Hah, yeah, it's hard to tell which killing of Mr. Ashford he's apologizing for.

And you could be right, Silver Fox.

A close shot like that has to help somehow, right? Oh, and I finally figured out the red on Mr.Ashford's suit decal was blood from the earlier shot.

With a magnum? It most likely will! After all, a crippled or damaged zombie isn't as good as a dead one, but still better than a "healthy" one. ;)

And yeah, I was worried people might not understand that - looking at the last shot, I was afraid readers wouldn't get why the muzzle flash is to the left of the bullet wound. I'm glad you figured it out.

That is one thing I hate in things like vampire movies and such: Even if bullets cannot hurt the monster for reals, blowing a hole you could stick your arm through should at least get a flinch out of them.

Buffy the Vampire Slayer was really bad with this. "Guns won't help" Buffy says, but apparently Xander, a normal everyday human landing a glancing blow with a fist will. Sorry, but gunshot>fist.

(Admittedly the creator, Joss Whedon, doesn't like guns, and I think this is why the above happened every episode where guns showed up.)

Yeah, I certainly agree. Despite zombie anatomy, it's pretty much impossible for a bullet to have no physical effect on one.

I suppose vampires are a different story, because they're sometimes "magical," meaning they operate entirely outside of any logical reason.

I'm sorry to say I've never seen more than a few minutes of the show, although I did catch the majority of the movie (not directed by Joss Whedon, I know) on TV. I think Joss Whedon is a fantastic writer/director in general, though, he really knows how to make characters work.

I find it strange that he doesn't like guns, especially seeing as how his series "Firefly" had a LOT of guns, and when I say a lot, I mean you couldn't go 5 minutes without seeing at least one gun at times.

Well, it's quite possible that could've been due to producer demands, or something. They might have thought the show wouldn't do as well if there weren't a lot of gun scenes.

You're probably right. So, I wonder how many floors they will go down before the power goes out.

Hah, what makes you think the power will go out before they get to the ground floor? ;)

Just a movie-watchers intuition.

I thought Mr. Ashford had worked there for seven years, not 12. Sorry my comment is a little late I was catching up on old comics, but in the episode where Mr. Ashford was fired the boss said 7.

Yeah, that's true: Mr. Ashford (the zombie emerging from the elevator) did work there for seven years.

The Boss was actually talking about his friend, Leonard Ross (who is now the bloody-handed zombie walking toward the elevator), when he said he worked there for 12 years.

Mr. Ashford was a grumpy guy who never liked the Boss much, while Leonard Ross was one of the Boss's closest friends.
