Strangling a pupper is not my proudest moment.
—Golden F.

Hirohiko Araki once stated that whenever he wants to show a villain as truly despicable, he has them harm a dog. It's an effective method, that's for sure. It's also clear he has far greater mental endurance than either of us, because after finishing these next couple of pages, we both spent 45 minutes crying and a lot of money on tubs of Ben & Jerry's

I sincerely hope that you're all staying safe, keeping a cool head, and taking care of yourselves and one another out there. Don't let those around you shoulder their burdens alone. You don't have to make a big song and dance out of it, and the gestures you make don't have to be huge or expensive, just real. Listen to them. Learn about what's hurting them. Shelter them. Hold them up. Hold them close. In the words of a very wise man, "be excellent to each other." I know you can do it.

We also have a special announcement this week…


That's right, reader! Once chapter 2 concludes on 17th July, we'll be going on break, returning early in September for the beginning of our next chapter. During this period, Golden F. and I will be getting some more work done, both on continuing this and laying the groundwork for another project (which will will be leaking details of in the future), so to tide things over, we're now open to guest art and comics. The only real rules are that they be related to Barkham Horror, family friendly (e.g., no strong language or graphic imagery), and in the case of comics, be no longer than three pages. You can send your submissions to us through direct messaging at our Facebook and twitter pages, private messaging on my ComicFury forum profile, or e-mail them to us an attachment at scottharris1988@gmail.com —— make sure to write "Barkham Horror Guest Art" in the subject line, and include the name you'd like to be credited by, and which site (be it a comic, art page, or social media page) you'd like us to link to!

Holy cow, this page is so dynamic, I love the composition. Also I love anything that is inspired by Araki's work :)

I've talked to Golden F. about her style before, and she's admitted that she takes a lot of cues from the sheer amount of detail Japanese manga artists pour into each panel. My own history as a film student also informs the demands for certain angles in the script. Anyway, I'm glad you're enjoying the comic!

Where's the flamethrower when you need one? Least a gas can and a lighter would be nice.

That would be one very remarkable hospital. Terrifying, but remarkable.

Risky business!
