@Fruitbat44: If this had been a finished work to be read at the readers leisure I may well have done that extra page but as you guys have to wait a whole week between updates I often feel I should try and keep things moving if possible.
And yes, first loves do seem to have that hold on us I feel, I know mine did and although I've not seen her more over 20 years now I still count a lot of those first experiences as being something very special because they had such an impact on my life at the time. My own feelings about this page are that it's Lucy and Janey who are the ones who really find it hardest to let go because they both have a degree of guilt over being the ones to ruin it.
Lovely back story, and they look like such a cute couple in the making!
For the sake of keeping things moving I felt it was unnecessary to show Sarah's squirming confession and cut to the effects of it instead. It's also been a chance to compare Lucy's relationship with Sarah to that of Janey's to Kirsty.
I love the use of the words 'pure evil' it always semes such a lovely contradiction of words that also just happens to make sense too!
You can't beat lots of fur to hide what you can't see properly ;) The dog looks lovely to me.
I agree with your take on Agatha Christie. Here in the UK she is greatly valued and I did read a number of her stories in my younger years. I find her characters equal to Arthur Conan Doyles and Miss Marple has always been my most favourite of all.
I really admire how well you create atmosphere with your choice of colours and how you apply them. I think I probbaly already said that a few times already tho. ;)
One thing I always love about the comments section is that by reading those left by others it's so often a great way to be reminded of any parts of the storyline I might have missed or forgotten, expecially as I'm such an aerratic reader! I'm starting a new job though now as a carer which will give me more time to kill between visits and I'm hoping to use that time to catch up on archives like this.
I remember from a previous tutorial how unique your art style is in colouring this comic and it amazes me you turn such lovely art out so fast, even under pressure of time.
@Fruitbat44: Yessss! I seem to remember a few pages back you mentioned the possibility of this scene occurring between them but to avoid ruining the surprises for others I try to keep my responses as low key as possible until we've arrived.

1a would make a fascinating twist in the tale but I'm not sure any readers would forgive me for that! lol

Great point about page 569 tho, and your assumption is correct. Back in my teens when I found myself alone in the house I'd sometimes get spooked by a single sound from upstairs and imagine somebody was up there. I'd be too scared to go up and just stand at the bottom listening intently, and the more I listened the more my imagination convinced me I could hear footsteps, breathing etc until I'd panic and run out into the garden. So I wanted to play on this idea for the script on that page. Sarah also thought she heard a fist coming down on the piano but Lucy's contradiction suggests it probbaly was all in sarah's mind.. unless of course Laura or Lenore opened the door again after slamming it! :)
@kidcthulhu: I hope she takes your advice! :)
@Karlijn: I know I've been mean to Lucy but at the same time it was fun to think how easily a few normal events could take on a supernatural perspective. Love the new Avatar btw!!
@fallopiancrusader: haha I couldn't let her get away with that. ;)
As you may recall... Back on Page 8(SS6) Sarah took the key from Lucy's bedside cabinet when she decided to search Laura's room for clues. She also found the planchette under the bed but because she got spooked by the idea that the room was haunted she fled, leaving behind enough evidence for Lucy to find and come to the wrong conclusion!

Now Sarah has to decided whether to confess the truth or risk poor misguided Lucy messing with that Ouija board again!


Have a nice week :)
It's nice to know she's okay but I wonder how long it will take her to recover. Last panel is quite moving with the way you've put her way in the background.
I only remember these sort of shops from seaside towns where they would have allsorts of silly novelties. They were always fun to look round. :)

Lovely comic! I'm not sure if you will continue posting pages here for much longer as I noticed you were considering swapping to Taptastic. Cool art though and a really nice story. I had a bit of trouble getting some of the larger pages to load, probably due to their filesize, but I'm pleased to see that the pages look more regular now.
