I just found a new comic to follow. It's pretty creepy and very strange, but I like it a lot.

So, I figured I'd just read a couple pages, especially after I saw it, but for some reason I couldn't stop reading it. It's really very bizarre, but somehow fascinating.

I saw way too much art like Dead Mouse's during my tenure at TLE to be intrigued by this webcomic.
I stopped after a couple of pages.

i guess there is a slowness to it. THere's no text for something like 50 or more pages. But at the end of the first 120 pages you have a great feel for the setting with no talking head bits. It's an interesting setting with cool characters.

NFO?

Actually I read the whole thing. I like a lot of it. The use of panel transitions is very good. Overall it's bizarre, not something I think I would check with any regularity, but it might be interesting to see it again in half a year when there are a good chunk of new things to see.

I would have thought the girl cracking the boys skull with every knife in the kitchen would have been " spiritually damaging" so now I am confused.

actually, the best way to handle that is probably just to link to the picture, since, y'know, if it's on a page and you have to scroll to the next comic you're probably going to see it anyway, but you don't HAVE to click a link.

it's not a boy...doesn't appear to be even human...is that even blood? maybe, but the medium lessens the impact it might have.

Personally I've read many books and had little to no problem with them that I would have had great difficulty with were they acted out live with exactly as much detail. Does my reaction make sense? Maybe not, but I think it's likely not uncommon for different people to be affected different ways by different media.
