The softcover edition of Broodhollow: Curious Little Thing is now available to order!
And finally — if you order Book 1, you can add Starslip books for only $5 each!
I’m very excited to be able to share Curious Little Thing with you. It’s the best looking book I’ve ever made, with embossing and spot gloss on the cover, back and front. It is very handsome. Thanks for making it possible!
Since these stories are shared on forums, why not use the direct and unliterary vernacular of the everyuser to tell your story, putting it as an anecdote? Which isn’t to say that the story can’t be subtle and intelligent. Kris Straub’s ‘Candle Cove’, a ‘lost TV show’ story and certainly among the best creepypasta out there, does exactly this. … The last message in the thread delivers a chilling twist with Twilight Zone precision and force. And it’s done without the ’500 kids killed themselves!’ excess that generally plagues the ‘lost episode’ subgenre.
I appreciate the attention paid! Especially the “500 kids” thing, which is what ruins creepypasta for me. It always veers too far into total ridiculousness. There’s a lukewarm review of Broodhollow on Goodreads that amounts to it not being scary enough, or taking too long to get going — I totally get that my type of horror isn’t everyone’s bag, but if the scariest thing to you is a masked guy lunging at a shackled teen, this is not a comic you will be satisfied by.
Sorry about the delays, everyone — I’m getting the end of the Kickstarter out, and we’re in the process of moving as well. I’d rather post something that will be great in the book, than throw up some filler art or a story page I’ll have to correct and retract in a week.
<3 I will bring you two pages this week though.
This was very kind! Patrick, who I have had a number of run-ins with via our live stage shows and Acquisitions Incorporated, wrote a very positive review of the first Broodhollow book on Goodreads. I hadn’t realized he had backed Book 1 on Kickstarter!
