An uncanny occurrence or senility? (A question I ask when my folks post on Facebook.)
"Rest in peace? You're never gonna kick the bucket if you keep drawing breath like that!"
I'm digging the train smoke, looks good! With an average of 3 holidays per day, Broodhollow single-handedly keeps the confetti and holiday card industries in the black.
I see Dead People.
Yeesh. Creepy… The subtlety is great.
You mean old woman >.< Be nice to Zane!
Anyone else noticed that in the last panel the surroundings are in different color? I smell relevancy. Or maybe I've been watching too much Steins;Gate lately.
I always look forward to when a new Broodhollow gets posted!! Very excited about this project:).
How long has she been asleep??? Her eyes were open in the last page, the spooooky part must be from this page.
Also in case anyone didn't catch it, the background colors changed abruptly when the lady "woke up". Good work Kris!
The interesting thing is that most panels on this page have background colors with a reddish tint similar to those on the previous change. So when the colors change… if that is significant, does it mean that Wadsworth is waking from a dream, or that he's slipping into another one?
This was a fun livestream, by the way.
Much more subtle than in Star Slip and has a very good off kilter vibe. But isn't any horror show about altered impressions? One of Lovecraft's trademarks, as did Philip K. Dick was sometime in the story you start sliding over from the mundane to the weird and even mind blowing horrors hiding just behind the bright sun light.
Hmmmmm… A thought occurred. Panels colored red in future strips have been nightmares or situations of questionable realness. The lady's sudden change of attitude could be Zane coming back to reality after talking to a sleeping old lady he imagined talking back.
Looking back, you are probably right.
Or maybe she forgot that she was talking to him, when he mentioned Broodhollow…
The Town Of A Thousand Holidays…..unfortunately they're all April Fool's Day. The town just past it is affectionately known as The Town Of A Thousand Mass Graves.
