Barkham Horror

Starting from Comic #1: Chapter 1: Dog House
Chapter 1: Dog House
So here's where it all begins. The cover to chapter 1, based on the poster for Ti West's 2009 film House of the Devil. Expect the proper first page of the story this Friday! You can also read the series over on TheDuck, and it may seem a bit presumptuous, but we have Facebook and Twitter!

First story page, and boy-oh-boy, we're off to a heck of a start. They say you can't take the city out of the girl, but apparently you can plop her smack dab in the middle of the spooky woods and let her get chased around by shadowy monsters.

I happen to enjoy a good long coach ride. I like being able to watch the scenery go by, changing from the city I know, to the country, to the coast, to another town or city I've never been to. Maybe I'll have a little music playing in rhythmic time with the soothing vibration of the motor. Sod's Law being what it is, though, you know that just as you're settling into it, this happens.

Decided to go back and read from the beginning. Still love this scene with the lady sleeping on her shoulder and she's too polite to shove her off. Been there.

I really love buildings with weird and crazy architecture. Oftentimes there's something inherently mysterious, alluring, or frightening about them. Maybe visiting haunted house attractions left me with a complex or something, I don't know. I really wanted Brindle Hall to draw from sites like Prague's Dancing House, San José's Winchester Mystery House, Big Boo's Haunt from Super Mario 64, and the Crooked House at Southend Adventure Island. I think my darling artist did a wonderful job bringing the old place to life. Also, it's Friday the 13th! Guess I know what I'm watching tonight. ;)

“My kind of house”
Ohhhh. Creepy castle inheritance! At least I think its a castle. Either way, I love it!

Pinnacle of professionalism, isn't he? Doesn't even give her a card, just a quick plug for the Yeller Pages. It's almost like he can't wait to get shot of her! This is going to sound strange, but I think if this comic were an animated series, I'd want George Basset to be voiced by the great Jim Broadbent doing his best Droopy Dog impersonation, just for the spectacle!

“I look forward to these every Friday! ”
Ohhh. Plot twist. Daddy's not there and she's saddled with a gorgeous house. And Adrienne's face in the last panel is priceless!
“Old Yeller Reference? ”
So I totally caught the Old Yeller reference in the comic but than I was rereading and noticed your author's note. Get shot of her? I see what you did there. :P

A quick toast to all the parents out there whose affection and dedication to care treads that ever-so-fine line between sweet and aggravating (you know who you are). The shirt design Adrienne's wearing on this page was inspired by a particular clothes shop I visited on London's Charing Cross Road earlier this year. The staff were quite lovely, and very interested when they overheard me and a friend talking about the visual appeal. Final note, it's my nephew's birthday this weekend. Hope everyone else has fun.

“Look behind you moment!”
Oh my god! Creepy specter in the window. I shudder. Worst nightmare for a girl alone! Now the question is, was it a ghost or something more sinister? Can't wait for the next page!
