Clever readers will notice that there’s a stanza missing in today’s comic. That is because, while I dearly love every line of this poem, some editing was required to make it all fit into nice, neat, little 4-panelled comic instalments.

Don’t worry, though- said curtains will still be purple ;p

Man, coloring that first panel nearly killed me, but I think it was worth it. :) (Also, it is chock full of hidden references that amused me to draw – see if you can spot a few!)

For those who have been asking, yes, that IS Joel playing the role of Poe’s narrator, and Sarah playing Lenore.

Hey everyone!!

Halloween’s almost here, and that means it’s almost time for our annual Halloween storyline!! This year, I’ll be illustrating one of my favorite poems, “The Raven”, by Edgar Allan Poe. I’ll also be trying out a bit of a new style, which I’ve already been having a lot of fun with!!

Anyway, I hope you all enjoy it! This story will run until Oct. 31, and our new chapter will begin on November 3! (Which also happens to be my birthday! Yay, I made myself a shiny new chapter for a present!)

Sorry for the interruption, everyone, but this whole “three conventions in a row” thing has put a stake through the heart of my buffer. Friday’s strip, which is the conclusion to this chapter, is taking a little longer than usual to draw, so I’m swapping it with the Friday sketch in order to make sure it’s done right. Please don’t forget to check back on Friday for the resolution to this storyline!

Also, this particular sketch was commissioned by a couple of long-time fans, of their Weregeek forms. They are sci fi and fantasy fans, respectively, and I’m pretty happy with how they turned out. :)

IC Drama happens in the IC room, OOC drama happens in the OOC room. Drama lighting happens in either. :p
