Krazy Noodle Massacre

Krazy Noodle Massacre

by Lutztoons
Rhodes and Dempsey are a young married couple who are just getting started in life. They'd like to move forward with their own careers and goals, but they keep getting distracted by everything from cutesy video games to tacky late-night shows about serial killers. Late one night, Dempsey comes home with a wild story about running into a jittery man at the grocery store who buys almost nothing but a generic macaroni product called "Krazy Noodles." Much to Rhodes' hesitation, Dempsey comes up with a plan to go spying on him the following week so that Rhodes can see him for himself. They might think they're just going on a funny little adventure, but neither of them have any clue how much trouble they're about to cause---not only for themselves, but the guy they want to stare at.

Recommended for readers 14+. Contains some light violence and mild cartoon blood. Has some innuendo, but no graphic sexuality or full-frontal nudity. Occasional vulgar language.

Note: Updates are currently a bit random.

@Oly-RRR: Thank you! That's good to hear, I was worried it would be too jarring. I tend to gravitate towards digital tools that mimic their IRL counterparts, and having a screen tablet eased the transition a lot.
Ooh, spooky indeed!

And actually, your digital colours look good and not that different from your traditional colours. I think if you didn't mention it I wouldn't even notice until I looked closer. And the funny thing is, someone told the same to me before but I didn't believe them because the process felt different to me. :)
A good soundtrack for this portion of the story is the song Blue Lights at Night by Tor Lundvall.

We've finally made it....to the digital age.

I hope the transition isn't too jarring! The comic will continue to be digitally-colored from here on out.

I'm going to continue relettering the comic. The font I picked didn't work with my art style, so I'm going to be using another one.
@Oly-RRR: Oh Gods, yeah. My favorite thing is when I'm trying to go to sleep and all of a sudden, my brain is like, "Hey, remember that REALLY awkward thing you said in 2009?" And then I cringe so hard I roll up into a little ball.

Thank you!! That's always the feeling I have about the forest. It's peaceful and quiet, but you're still wondering what would happen to you if you got lost.
I get that feeling after about every other conversation. It's like all the witty (or even just NOT PAINFULLY AWKWARD) remarks come to me 15 minutes later when I'm alone.

The woods are so cool though. I think you captured that vibe perfectly - there's something both scary and calming about woods in the dark, like the tipping point between calmness and fear.

@Lutztoons: Yeah, the Internet definitely made it easier for the narratives of NOT neurotypical people to find their audience. X)

And OMG, woods - I both love drawing them and yeah, the pain... In their wings, in their trees, all things die, be at peace~

...whaaaat? You asked for prayers! <:D
@Lutztoons (the neurodivergent person being me)
@Oly-RRR: Mental illness is an object of fascination for a lot of people, but it's often approached from a voyeuristic angle. Like looking at zoo animals. And I agree, misrepresentation of mental illness in crime fiction is pretty rampant. I think that goes with fiction in general, actually--I'd like to see more protagonists with certain conditions.

But this comic is written by a neurodivergent person, so you'll be getting a different perspective on things than usual.

On an unrelated note, thank you! SpOOooOOOOky SCARY WOODS
I've given myself like 500 billion trees to draw in the next few pages, send thoughts and prayers
@Oly-RRR: THESE SITUATIONS SUCK, BUT AT LEAST WE CAN LIMP THROUGH THEM TOGETHER

This scene is based on the feeling I get when I read or watch something that makes my skin crawl because it hits too close to home. It's not the greatest feeling ever, but I'm glad it's relatable for you!
@Oly-RRR: *Gideon waves at u*

Thank you!! Car scenes are weirdly difficult to draw. You'd think they'd be easy since they're made of rectangles and squares, but they're just...not. I was hunched over my phone staring at car interiors on Google Images the whole time I was drawing this.
@Oly-RRR: Thank you! It's easier for me to function at night, too, and I love to capture the unique feeling it has.

@Oly-RRR:
YAAAAAAAY, you're back! I'm glad to have you along for the ride! :3
Someone take Gideon out of this page and put him in a safe place.

But wait...who's Gabriel?
Remember when Gideon mentioned his "very volatile friend" back when he was at the grocery store? You'll find out about him soon.

I'd love to upload pages with more frequency, but my design coursework is very demanding. I have only one page left in my backlog after this one.

The next page is the first one to be digitally-colored.

Yeah, this is the point where I would turn it off too. It's like... I dunno why so many writers are curious about mental illness but chose to explore it through anything but empathy. I was just thinking the other day - so much crime fiction would be better if the protagonist was the one dealing with - insert a condition here-, not the antagonist.

On an entirely different note, your landscapes are beautiful.
THIS IS SO RELATABLE I DUNNO WHETHER I SHOULD LAUGH OR CRY

I guess I am grinning because because the irony of the situation of the comic means YOU get me! :D
Why hello there Gideon. :D

I always find car scenes unavoidable AND hard so I'm really impressed with this page!
Gotta love quiet night time and how you render it. Ironically it's the time when it's easiest for me to function (less distractions) aaand I suspect it's also true for the driver of this car.

Ah yeah, Chapter 2! I should have been here ages ago (I'm a dingus with bad health, you know me) but I'm so excited to get into this now! :D
"More animal than man"? Good lord, ouch. Can you blame him for turning it off?

Gideon has officially left civilization. Where could he possibly be going?

Classwork is eating into my comic time and I'm going to have to drag out my update schedule.
Have you ever had a moment where it feels like a media piece is directly insulting you?

Gideon is listening to an old-timey, spooky scary radio show that's very much in the style of "Lights Out," "The Haunting Hour," or "Suspense." I grew up listening to these because my dad loves them. He'd play them on long car rides to pass the time.

For the record, you'll start seeing digital color at Page 6.
