Webcomic description

A view into strange happenings as seen not by humans, who miss the events entirely, but rather through the eyes of a mixed rescue dog, Jack, and his not-so-attentive Boston Terrier friend, Julius. Journey with them as horrific terrors constantly threaten their environs, people, and the world around them.

Edward Gorey inspired inking, HP Lovecraft inspired milieu. Authored by Brad Arnett and Asheen Woods.

The Whimper in the Dark updates once per month, the second Friday of the month. It will update one arc or sub-arc per month.

Thanks for your patience! We hope you enjoy it!

**2021 Update** WinD is on hiatus for the time being. We have many ideas for more story arcs (oh so many), but I am currently spread too thin from Dark Horse, The Comic Fury Zine, and other projects. I hope this will only be a temporary hiatus, but please don't expect anything until after July 2021. Our sincerest apologies!


I am a big fan of manga, graphic novels, and comics in general. I have been hooked on comics since I was kid, and first introduced to anime through Sailor Moon. This was also my first manga in 1997. I received my Visual Arts BA from the University of Illinois at Springfield in 2010, and continue to work on improving my art.

Well, before the end of the year, I guess I'll post one more picture. This was actually for the Comic Fury Holiday Crossover. I got a great comic to read, The Battalion. It was fun doing this piece :3

If you like military fantasy, magic and more, you might want to check out The Battalion. Hienna is pictured with Jack and Julius here :3

Normally I post on a Friday, but I wanted to share this before January

I should have done it sooner...but was busy D:

Enjoy, and have a Merry New Year!

All right, this is the last one for 2020, unless I get time and inspiration to do a Winter Solstice scary themed thing with the doggos. Election's over. Let's put this to sleep and start working towards healing one another and helping our communities. You may not be able to "fix" the world, but you can maybe be a help to those in your own town, city, community.

Be good to each other.

I am going to share this song. I love Death Cab for Cutie.

And Death Cab for Cutie leads me to this rabbit hole (yes, Michael Palin is introducing them). And this song was featured in Magical Mystery Tour. And thus, it all comes back to The Beatles for me, always XD

Finally, this image is not to be confused with Chairman Meow:

Thank you! It was a lot of fun to draw :3

I need to watch that movie again...it's been...probably near a decade now o_O
This one made me laugh out loud!
I have ideas for the last two candidates. If I have time next week, I hope to finish this arc out with them. In the meanwhile, enjoy this song.

*Also this one for some reason was a pain in the butt to do. I made Jack waaaaay too big, and had to use another piece of Bristol board to fix it. Then I used an Exacto knife to cut out the left side, matched it up, and glued it down. I guess you can't tell so much, but I also ticked myself off when I painted the stripes wrong on the repair piece, and had to gouache over the ink and redo it o_O This is pretty much what screwed up my "draw a page a day" self challenge, and has delayed the other pages.

Ah well, I'll just finish it up next week if I get a chance. I really want to do the Cthulhu one! I want it to be in the style as the cover art of some of the KDFDM albums (not my favorite techno; I'm more of a Chemical Brothers fan myself).
