Multiple Choice Comics 2
I kept the weirdness from the first Multiple Choice Comics going with this second round, specifically attempting Lovecraftian dialogue.
Mary is the name of the Traveling Bearded Lady, because it kinda rhymes. Why not?
For the even stranger (if such a thing is possible) third set of text, I rolled my Rory’s Story Cubes and wrote dialogue based on the images.
I was on the fence about coloring this comic, but I’m glad I decided to do so. Coloring wasn’t too difficult, just another extra step. The most ‘work’ was figuring out what to color my characters–even No Filter Fox’s orange took awhile to choose.
[[No Filter Fox skips down the street towards Observant Raptor.]]
No Filter Fox:A. Guess who I met! B. Hark! The black gate opened and spewed forth a nightmare made flesh! C. Look who I found in the shadow of a sheep!
Observant Raptor: A. I’m shaking with anticipation. B. Let us see this emissary of the Dread Lord from beyond. C. What a thing to say on my birthday!
[[A blonde, bearded woman approaches No Filter Fox and Observant Raptor.]]
No Filter Fox: A. She’s a time traveler! B. I dare not speak its true name, for it rends the ears and mind. C. The arrow knows the way.
Observant Raptor: A. She’s a bearded lady! B. What an accursed visage! I no longer fear death. C. I am empty like a ghost.
[[No Filter Fox asks the bearded lady to speak]]
No Filter Fox A. She can be both! Listen! B. Speak, beast from beyond! Share your cosmic secrets!
Bearded Lady: A. Napoleon wasn’t so short! B. Strange alien text. C. The moon needs a parachute.
Observant Raptor: A. No more reading missed connections for you! B. Silence fell creature! Your eldritch tones ravage my sanity! C. This is why the aliens stay in the forest!
Hovertext: Yes, you can be a time traveler AND a bearded lady. WHY NOT
