This strip really doesn't make any sense if you didn't read last week's strips
. So if you haven't, go do that. Or if you did... why not go read them again? More pageviews are a good thing for my ad revenue!
It's been a while since we've had Zoey and Lizzy in the comic
and I was trying to figure out things to do with the current arc that would be a little different... this idea popped into my head and it gave me an excuse to have the girls show up again.
I really am glad I added Lizzy to the comic. She really helps me get with Zoey strips. Zoey works best when she's playing off of people and having a character that is basically devoted to that is a really handy thing. Plus, people really seem to like her despite the fact that she's only been in a handful of strips.
Zoey's place of employment
hasn't really been showcased since when she first showed up way back in the first month of Zombie Roomie. Burning Issue
was one of the first parody brands to show up in the comic along with Five Bucks Coffee
. But, I thought it would be a good enough location for what is effectively one of the character dialogue strips like where George and John are walking in the woods
Also, yes the sign is a Clerks reference.
