Page 5

This was originally meant to be for an anthology to be published next year. I had written other pieces for the anthology that explored horror movie and police drama cliches, and I thought it would be fun to apply the same thing to comic books. The word limit for the stories were 1000 words, and once I decided to do this story visually, the trick was trying to do this in less than 100 words, for the challenge of it.

If you read comic books, I think you’ll notice the little details (Kirby dots!) and recognize the story, one that’s been told a million times before.
