Well done, Chris. Did you use a ink pen to draw this comic? I’m amazed at your artwork.
OH! Is this why you were talking about ball point pens on Twitter??? I love it. Seriously; gives it a really interesting look.
Thanks, guys! I’d long thought that, if I ever did a horror story, ballpoint pen might be the best weapon of choice. In that respect, this is sort of an experiment in tools
Turned out great! Reminds me of a scratchy horror movie (video production, that is).
Thanks, Nate! (See, I thought you were referring to the 1950s horror classic, “The Night of the Scratcher.”)
The inks on this one is inspired Chris, can’t wait to see what you do next!
Great pen and ink art, Chris! That’s awesome.
Love the hatching! Sets the tone so well (I’ll have to sleep with the light on tonight)!
LOL, awesome. The stylistic change works very well with this topic.
This looks great!
Excellent! And creepy. And in time for Halloween….
The day job again consumes my soul and free time, like an extra-spicy taco. Sorry to be lame on replies here
Thanks for the kind words about the art! Glad the effect is working.
Now, I just hope it’s funny (Doing my best to channel a Mad Magazine movie parody vibe…)
I love, LOVE the line work on this!!
Thanks, Paul! I’m having fun with the experiment.

[...] Odori Park also does some interesting visuals. For example, how can you improve on having a narrator in your comic? And it’s always fun to work in visual puns, too. And this one had me wondering if I could find a comic that was written in haiku. (A quick search shows a few exist, but let’s not digress.) There are also little easter-egg sorts of details sprinkled thoughout. You may, if you observe closely, see the Spider Bug shirt or World’s Most Adequate Slacker mug – among others. You can also see changes in the art style to accomplish certain storytelling in different ways. [...]

Nicely done reinterpertation!
