Saturday Morning Cartoons: December 16
It's Saturday morning! COMICS TIME.
I'm still very very slowly—I'm trying to space them out because once I'm caught up, the month-to-month wait will be ENDDDDLESSSSSS—getting all caught up on Giant Days. These panels are from Giant Days #21, in which our heroines' apartment is burgled and they go to a seedy bar—in disguise and relying on Susan's "street smarts"—in an attempt to get their stuff back.
If you're at all familiar with Susan, Daisy, and Esther, you will not be surprised to hear that it doesn't go particularly well.
I continue to feel that Susan is either channeling me or I am channeling her:
Replace Esther with Josh here—wait, I want to enjoy the mental image of him wearing that outfit for a moment... hmmm, yeah, I think he could pull it off—and this panel basically a slice of life from our house:
In the same issue:
• McGraw fixes a door!
• Susan makes Daisy and Esther watch Roadhouse!
• WE FIND OUT THAT DAISY IS BASICALLY NEVILLE LONGBOTTOM AND OMG IT MADE ME CRY.
I also just started Harrow County, which is a Southern Gothic, YAYYYYYYY!
And it is CREEPY AS ALL GET-OUT. Also: YAAAAYYYYYYYYYYY!
So far, the story is about a girl named Emmy who turns eighteen and discovers that she may or may not have paranormal witchy powers and is somehow connected to all of the haints in the woods. Over the course of the first two issues, she finds a haint IN THE SHAPE OF A DEAD BOY'S SKIN in the woods, brings it home, and stashes it in her bottom drawer:
Shortly thereafter, she realizes that pretty much everyone she knows—INCLUDING HER OWN FATHER—means to do her harm, so she goes on the run. And, as I said, I've only read through Issue #2.
But there's more! AFTER the story installment, the author includes a brief family ghost story, a call for MORE ghost stories from readers, and another short horror comic. So that should make for good fun in later issues.
