Webcomic description

When Adrienne receives a letter from her estranged father requesting she come to the small town of Barkham, she finds herself embroiled in the increasingly bizarre happenings that seem to be just part of everyday life. Strange figures stalk the woods, unexplained lights appear in the night skies, and something stirs beneath the foundations of old Brindle Hall.

I'll admit that, like many, I harbour a fascination with elements of Japanese culture and aesthetics. Don't get me wrong, I like as much Japanese animation as the next person (and believe me, I've watched my fair share), but there's so much to it than modern media. Where I'm from, tea is the nation's favourite beverage, but the very idea of a room, nay, an entire ceremony, dedicated to the brewing, serving, and sharing of something so humble, is incredible to me! Phrases are also quite interesting if you're at all intrigued by the nuances of language. In the previous page, the idiom minu-ga-hana (or "not seeing is a flower") came up, which refers to how nothing is ever quite how you imagine it, and seemed quite appropriate for a bookshop. Above we have umi-sen-yama-sen (or "thousand ocean, thousand mountain"), a proverb denoting someone old and sly who is possessed of much experience. On a lesser note, though he isn't the same breed, dear old Mr Akita's attire is directly inspired by this charming little fellow here. What about you? Are there any cultures or countries that put a surprising spin on something familiar, or things they say that make you think?

"I'd still shop there"
I'm sitting here like, "Oh what a lovely shop. I adore how it has the antique bell and register. The random Japanese proverb on the wall. And than BOOM. Monster. Eh, I'd still shop here.

Aaand we're back! Apologies if upload time was a bit weird this week, but the clocks change for us in the U.K. ahead of our U.S. readers and I neglected to adjust for that. Hope everybody out there had a good Hallowe'en. As I probably not-so-subtly hinted in a previous author's note, I absolutely love buildings with bonkers architecture (if I were a braver man I'd take up urban exploration, and if I were a richer one I'd visit as many that aren't closed down and probably haunted as possible). Here we join Adrienne as she visits another mainstay of the town. I really wanted the bookshop to resemble a set of over-stacked tomes that very much reflects the cluttered state of the interior. The old-fashioned brass till on the counter, and that utterly massive bell above the door, evidence the almost time-displaced nature of the place, and indeed the town of Barkham as a whole. I'd also like to extend my thanks to manymari for this great picture of Adrienne!

Yep! We decided to go with a Universal classic monsters motif for this one. Adrienne appears here as the great Lon Chaney's Phantom of the Opera, carried by the Sheriff as the Creature from the Black Lagoon! Deputy Colleen puts in an appearance as Bela Lugosi's Count Dracula, together with George as Claude Rains's Invisible Man. Making their sort-of debut are Tommy and Frenchy as Boris Karloff's Monster and Elsa Lanchester's Bride!
