Margot's Room: PART IV



"Margot's Room" now updated with Part IV (which means next week's installment will be the last -- egads, time flies). I also wanted to say thank you to anyone who came and said hello at NYCC last week -- I was so overwhelmed and anxious about being at a show that size, and it was really, really, appreciated to have some nice folks to talk with. So thank you!

  1. this is wonderfully creepy. I kind of hate you right now because it's 2:00 am here, and I can't stop looking over my shoulder!

  3. Hi there, I really adore your work, but this is my first time commenting!

    I really love how you've painted the woman in part 4, it really feels like she's... steadily disappearing. I may be the only one who sees it that way, but it's left quite an impression on me.

    It's wonderfully put together too :)

  4. Ahhhh, do you think I could have the direct link? I get sent to the first comic when I click this and I'm dying to keep reading.

  6. I can't find a way to click through to the next parts from the first page, am I missing something obvious?

  7. @chibimuse: The main landing page should consist of a poem (that gets longer every week/update) and a dark, bloody bedroom. The bloody bedroom is actually an image map, with (as of right now) four hot spots that correspond to clues in each subsequent line of the poem. Clicking on them will open up a short comic, and then return you to the main landing page so you can click on another.

    But! If it's just that your browser's maybe being weird and the image map's not working (which seems to be happening for a couple people I think), I'll link directly to the individual parts below! :)

  8. I love this comic so much. The way you use the space of the web browser as part of the story telling is absolutely beautiful, and makes the tale so haunting. Bravo.

  9. I'm so glad you posted the parts so I could read the comic. I came here to ask for the parts, actually, so its a treat to get to read your comics [always] and your scary ones in particular.

  10. I'm not going to lie, this took me a little while to figure out...but once I did, I have to say, it's a brilliant concept. Bravo, your use of the digital space to tell a story is easily the best out there.

  12. I know it's probably not important, but what is he saying in that last panel of part four?
    I figured out what he was saying in the second to last panel, so I now I'm just insatiably curious about what the last one says.

    Wonderful comic. You always do the best dark stories. :)

  13. @hannafia: Thanks! Glad you're enjoying it. :) As for what he's saying, no, it's not too important BUT -- I will say, if you've figured out the first thing he says, then that's a clue to what the second thing is.
