Sare~Sare~Sare When you're in it you just gotta go PHD (piled Higher and Deeper) don't know who you're gonna get to come and haul you and all your stuff out of here all the way out in Hells own Half Acre but you are gonna get your self kicked out of where you live again. Can't leave well enough alone, may have worked for Nancy Drew, Tom Swift, Little Orphan Annie and The Hardy Boys, but,it sure as H### ain't workin for you.
Oh yes, my dear.. We've been expecting you.

Nope, nothing ominous here. No siree bob.

Also, I love the pattern on Sare's coat.
The story so far:
Since moving into the family home of her girlfriend Lucy, Sarah is convinced the house is haunted. At first she assumed it was
Lucy's previous partner who died there in mysterious circumstances but now she is not so sure! An old lady Sarah met a short while ago said she had heard stories about the place and Sarah has now decided to visit her and find out what they are!

@Fruitbat44: This was one of the few pages that did look okay in b+w but usually the page looks very lifeless without so I normally prefer to wait if I can.It does feel important though to try and have a regular update day just so readers can be sure they know when we're ready.

@Linn: As you know yourself, it can be hard to judge how well a page works as the creator so it's always nice to hear it's doing something right! I had always planned for Sarah to visit the old lady out of curiousity but when I thought of her keys being 'trapped' in the house it seemed to limit her options nicely enough to bring that visit forward.

@fallopiancrusader: I know you put a lot of thought into camera angles yourself and when it comes to creating atmosphere or tension it's certainly fun to play with different ideas.

@Karlijn: Thanks :) I have the feeling this will lead to trouble too. ;)
Oh, the colors have arrived! Excellent work between you two ladies (as always).
I caught this yesterday before the colouring, and while it looked great - I did miss the colour, but I was very glad to see the strip on Saturday.

And Sarah's last two thought bubbles, even without the ominously fore-shadowing weathervane, well, I just find myself muttering, "Oh dear, oh dear."
Sare, Sare, Sare not the first time your curiosity bit you on the tail. It's gonna do it again when the open room is found.

I can actually feel her stress through the screen!
It was just a matter of time before it would lead up to this.
The cinematography is masterful on this page! I like how panels 4 and 5 provide some calming respite from all the expressionistic camera angles in the other panels

Even just in black and white this comic is beautiful! I feel like she's wrong about not causing any trouble...

The colour version isn't quite ready yet but I thought I'd post anyway as I want to try and keep the Saturday updates more regular from now on. I'll switch to the colour version as soon as it comes in though.

Have a nice week! :)
@Linn: Yes Linn, that one. I feel the ghostie may be jumping about a bit! :)
@Karlijn: Happy New year Karlijn. I think it's going to be difficult but perhaps having thought about it, Sarah will presume it was just her over active imagination again.:)
@kidcthulhu: haha You tell her! Yea, 2016 felt good for us too at first but then started to look pretty gloomy across the world as summer faded.
@Fruitbat44: Happy New Year to you too. I think Sarah is beginning to believe there really is something bad in the house which could have a big impact on her relationship for sure.
