What the fuck is wrong with you.
So here's what is up with the first chapter. I am starting to work on the art, and if I could show you now I would.
Context: This projects idea was actually sparked from the waking dreams of a heroin-addicted friend (his nod). 3 years ago, another dear friend and I decided we would write a story together. I was only 16 or 17, and so the pact was that we'd have to drink before we wrote. He, too, was a junky but god damn it he was one of my best friends. He passed away some time ago, but I still have the story we wrote. He wanted it to be about Greed, and upon writing the first paragraph, I knew I wanted to transpose it to hell. You see, my mother has technically died 3 times, and her dying visions are that of a lonesome ship in a desert.
So, the narrating goes like this (Its what he wrote):
"It starts with a sailing ship, and on it is one refugee….me.
I don't know why I'm on this ship, but if I pull this plug I will sink the ship, and I will go down with it…. So I pull the plug"
The rest will be about how he gets pulled in and journeys shortly to a town called "home", a ghost town for which only a church is open (its based off of a small mountain town called Washington, CA). He walks in on an autopsy of his wife in the most grotesque manner, and theyre saying foul shit like to burn her and fuck up any evidence. Upon the evidence is a note he found in his pocket, but reads two different things. One is a love letter while the other is a scratchy reminder to remember his vodka and cigarettes. The transition goes to the fact that he is in fact viewing his own autopsy. Its wierd.
You could use the frame story of "Dead Mother's Journey" and have the corpse narrate each episode from a boat. Then the wife-autopsy-in-the-town-and-cover-up-thing could be a single tale within the Dead Mother's sun-baked delusion. If it was good enough for E.C., it'll be good enough for you.
By "frame story" do you mean I can use the basic story archetype wherein I narrate through someone else, in this case, a dead mother?
BTW I just realized what my next snail rape comic is going to be about. "Welcome to the Salty Spittoon. How tough are ya?"
Yes, and dead mother has more charisma than one-track rape jokes IMHO.
So, fair and curious question here: Are you just joking by referencing my misuse and emphasis on the word on other boards?
what do you mean one-track? These comics aren't one-track when you consider their purpose. It is to serve extreme mixed feelings and to stir an atmosphere of creepy horror into something so loved and innocent.
Ive been following your comics OP since you put them up on /616/
Well honestly it seems dumb rather than creepy. Sort of like how 12 year olds laugh at dumb, grotesque flash movies made by other 12 year olds on newgrounds.
