That was . . . really horrifying.

And an interesting exercise in the tension a story can create through the default intrinsic sympathy given to a point-of-view character. Who turns out not to be the victim here at *all*.

Jo - I continue to be your fan. This is a perfect example of a simple idea told exceptionally well. Hitchcock would be very pleased. And the color is tops!

That was good, but for a minute I thought it was going to go all Dark Half on me.

This is everything that a great neo-noir short story should be.

You go, Jo!

WOW. Amazing, Jo :) From someone who doesn't read many comics, this was really, really awesome. I had goosebumps by the end.

Awesome, and I agreed with Mark about Hitchcock. This would make an excellent short film subject.

Wow... that was amazing! I completely didn't expect the twist at the end (and I'm *very* creeped out, but in such a good way!), and it broadsided me. Enough that I'm a little breathless. *grin*

And of course, me being me, the "twins" thing made me grin like a loon. But you know that. *snicker*

So utterly cool, Jo!

Wow.

I remember watching you grow as an artist at the club and man, you KEEP growing.

Want more!

Your big bro...Steven.

This was incredible. I love the darkness of this comic, and right from the start BAM you get the feeling something creepy's coming and it's amazingly delivered. I loved ALL of this

Fabulous, Jo. I remember seeing you start this--having it finished and online is like getting a surprise present! As always, your work is stunning!

So great to see something new and different from you, not to mention much more in line with my sensibilities. I'll add to the chorus calling it Hitchcockian. It really is. Stellar work!

That was awesome! (Okay, in my head, there were curse words involved, but it's the same sentiment.)

Chillingly brilliant! I really enjoyed the buildup and the suspense.

Is there more to this?

Wow, I totally didn't expect that ! That's a really good story, and well told.

Have you ever read "I am Hans Krunkel" by Chris Baldwin ?

A totally different story, on the same theme...

Keep all your stories with tights and capes, this is where it's at. I linked to this site from another site and I am glad that I did. Love the art!
Mark Wheatley
25. Mistux
Nice story, kind of creepy the title though! From my point of view that is! ;-)
