Wow, that is some artistic achievement, super duper, especially the maze bit.
What was the haunted house btw?
This was soo awesome. I've often thought about how scary movies are really a take on our own real fears. Im bummed I missed the call for fears on twitter :(. I dont check my feed nearly enough. Masterful work on the maze btw. I loved the two ghosts taking a cigarette(joint?)/coffee break haha
Aw man thats pretty awesome. Wish I had an updated picture of me, I wanted to send my face&fear in!
Loving the cover of 'Nobody loves you like me"! You and your friend Mark have lovely voices! (:
I feel lame for not recognizing Anath and Yuko immediately. I think it's because I'm so accustomed to Anath having eyes.
I am content to let everyone else enjoy their horror movies and stories and whatnot. I've never really put much thought into the purpose horror serves (because I am too busy fleeing in the opposite direction). This was extremely interesting.
Okay, am I the only one who thinks that the subtext of "Nobody Loves You Like Me" is that it's sung from the perspective of a rich old man with a chronic illness who had a clone of himself made when he was first diagnosed and now that the clone is in his 20s he's all ready to harvest his organs so he can keep living, but at the last minute he realizes that killing the clone and taking his organs would be worse than dying, because it would be like murdering himself in his prime (I know that identical twins aren't the same person, much less people with the same genome who were raised decades apart, but this guy has to be pretty twisted or he wouldn't have hit on this scheme in the first place), so he decides to retreat to his mansion and die after all, and his clone never knows that he just narrowly escaped a fate that's been destined for him his entire life, because even though the old man constantly kept tabs on him and got to know him from afar, the clone never knew of the old man's existence?
Just me, then? Well, okay.
Then answer me this: What's the meaning of "it's not a real heart; it's not a real heart; it's not a real heart; it is a real artificial heart", huh? One rich old man might discover he has a conscience and refuse to sign the harvest papers, but there are plenty more rich old men where he came from...
(The tricky thing is that when he sings "Nobody loves you like me", he's singing to the clone, but when he says "I'll use a pencil and that will show you", he's singing to the part of himself who had planned to harvest the clone's organs in the first place. He's got some serious self/other conflation issues.)
I think I see myself! Thanks for letting us be a part of it. It turned out excellent.
Lucy this is fabulous comic- leaving me in awe of your skills but intellectually thought-provoking as well. Amazing.
After seeing the "pre"-pencilled and inked page of page two, all I can say is "wow!"
Love you and the work!!
Came back to check the "ghosts on a break" and saw the two ghosts makin' out too! HAHAHAHAHAHA!!!!
I like the ghosts who are taking a smoke/coffee break :D
haha, i was able to find me! i forwarded it over to my sister so i can see if she can find me as well, almost like a "where's waldo?" puzzle. it looks great!
Great comic, really amazing! Love the ghosts kissing/smoking/coffee break. I didn't see those things till I read the comments.
I too loved the ghosts smoking and drinking coffee.
those are so great! (just like every other "stop paying attention" comic, really.) love looking at all those distinct faces in the maze! also, i'm glad someone suggested "the sea" as a fear; *shudder*
speaking of marine life, i was watching the NY1 coverage of the village halloween parade tonight and could've sworn i saw your squid costume in a crowd scene, only to get very exciting confirmation when you got some solo screen time! very impressive costume in addition to your very impressive comics :)
I'm so glad you saw it! Man, I wish I could see it! Dang live TV.
Thanks for the kind words. Awesome to hear, always!
