Episode 856

Read the comic here.

The Brick House has always had a nearly transparent fourth wall - today's strip removes it entirely.

Wow this has got to be a first for Brick House. Never before has any other webcomic created a door into the author's studio!

Chris is obviously inspired by Ian Healy's effort to get himself into his own webcomic. But to get the webcomic into real life? That takes a lot more than a fancy shmancy laser gadget and a POTW flier! ;)

Great escaper said...

Oh dear...this cannot bode well. I'm anticipating either "Honey I shrunk the kids" style shenannigans or Matrix Reloaded style meeting with their creator.

Ian said...

It reminds me of when in AST Tortoise borrowed Science Guy's Cave Racer and flew through my living room to zap me with a Tron laser. Nicely played, Chris. :)

Not just the forth wall, but it looks like you've removed the second, the third and the ceiling as well!

I look forward to DMM-style facial acting by the author.

As others have said, very nice job on what has to be a photographic first. Have you been reading "Breakfast of Champions" and decided to put yourself in the action?

I am duly impressed.

Damn, there goes the whole originality of my sub-story. Well I doubt noone would of done it within 3 years...

@ian:

I did have that sequence in the back of my head while scripting this next bit. Hopefully I'll manage to cover some new ground, too...
