Bump in the Night

Many are afraid of the dark, of being alone on that dark and stormy night. The things that hide in the shadows are feared. But are they necessarily deserving of the terror? You be the judge.


Arbalest – Haelu is a monster, born of the snow and the long dark. Her purpose: to bring back the sun. But, as awareness of her complex self begins to emerge, Haelu forges goals of her own. Rated M for partial nudity, blood/gore, sex, themes of abuse.


Numb – The story starts with Levi and Sue, childhood friends who have since grown apart. They attempt to meet again but right before Levi ends up in an accident that has something else behind it than just careless street crossing. Old strains are brought up and something sinister is lurking around.

Filipa enters the small workshop. It's dusty and disorganized. As she enters through the beads that cover the doorway, a tiny man notices her arrival.

Henrique: Oho, my child! Please, take a seat! I have your pieces ready, let's hope they don't creak as much now!

Panel 2:
Henrique holds a shiny new metallic leg.

Henrique: Shall we put it on?

Panel 3,4:
Filipa is sitting on a wood bench and staring at the ceiling while Henrique is connecting her new right leg.

Filipa: Oh- it's pandemonium up north!
Henrique: You take care, my young child.

Panel 5:
