Margot's Room: PART V



"Margot's Room" comes to an end this week with Part V (and an extra warning goes here for blood/horror/violence). For those who have just found the comic, or who find it now that it's complete, I just want to say again that the order of the comics is listed in the poem on the landing page -- each line provides a clue for an object that must be clicked on in the room itself to reveal a short story.

That said, because I know the image map hasn't been working across the board, I'll also linked to each part individually in the comments below!

Thanks again for everyone who's been reading this month, and for everyone who's shared the comic around. I really appreciate it. It was my first time doing an updating comic, and I hope you enjoyed the end result!

  7. It was really cool and creepy! I wish the image map had worked for me, but only the first page works for some reason. Thanks for linking the pages. (ps- I figured out that the link PART 2 (the doll): http://www.emcarroll.com/comics/margot/flowers.html that you supplied should actually be PART 2 (the doll): http://www.emcarroll.com/comics/margot/DOLL.html

  8. This was amazing. Your art is fantastic, and I wish I could tell stories the way you do. This kind of blew me away. Thank you, it's great.

  9. You are absolutely genius. The art is beautiful but I think you storyboarding is so original and suited for the internet - it's really the new way forward!

    I'm really creeped out by the finale though!! Which means a success? ;)

  10. Oh my goodness I loved this! <3 The layouts were so creative, the story was so terrifying and sad, and the art was perfect, as always. Between this and His Face All Red, I am addicted to your horror stories!

  11. Miss Em Caroll, you are by far one of the most inspiring artists I have had the fortune to find; I am a massive fan of everything you do- and I can say that your stories, aside from being visually gorgeous- are absolutely bone-chilling and beautifully narrated. I love your innovative use of web-space, panels, time your whimsical writing, EVERYTHING. I cannot wait for what your mind comes up with next.

    Margot's Room was a real treat, thank you so much ! I love your creepy tales.

  12. Hey, thanks so much everyone! I'm really happy you enjoyed the story. Like I say, I was really nervous about doing an updated story over this span of time, so thank you for reading along. It means a lot.

    And Annie! Thank you! I must have copied and pasted the wrong address -- thanks so much for catching that!

  13. aha, I can understand being nervous- but rest assured; you are wonderful and a lot of people agree on this.

    I shared your story on Tumblr a while ago, as of now it has garnered 93 notes. Just thought I'd let you know. :)

  14. Oh my dear god. I've been reading this over and over for a few days. The art is gorgeous, and the story is truly haunting.

    Also the first few panels of part 5 kept me up on Friday night/Saturday morning. I think you've tapped into the attributes that the "werewolf" archetype beat into uselessness, and you revived them.

    Really, truly excellent.

  15. I absolutely love your comics. You are one of my top 3 favorite illustrators of all time (including Golden Age illustrators and everyone).

    I liked the way this comic was laid out only in a way that an online comic could be. Nice use of space.

  16. Hello :) I'm your new, freshly made fan and I just wanted to tell you that I love you :). Yesterday, I stumbled on the Prince's story, and I couldn't stop staring at it, I haven't seen something had such big impact on me for a long while. I've been reading it whole day, until I decided to find more of them... so I read all the comics & everything I could find. They were AMAZING. I'm usually very bright person, but something is unexplainably attracts me so much to your works, I can't look away from them. As if they are sucking me in.
    The stories are mostly terrifying but also somehow very farmiliar and close to me, and the art is absolutely perfect fit. I'm also very impressed by your choice of space and layouts.
    Please continue to make more breathtaking works, I'll watch out & look forward to anything else you do :)
    Thank you so much!

  18. When I stumbled across your comic of His Face All Red, I instantly fell in love with your artwork that matches perfectly with your dark story telling. Love them soooo much! & I absolutely love your idea of the poem & the puzzle with the Margot's Room story (although it confuses me in the 1st place =p).

    I really hope you'll continue to make these kinds of stories with your unique artwork!

  19. I just love love love all you do, you are such an inspiration.
    I just feel so ... upset that I don't understand this really (completely my fault). Was she imagining everything or did he really turn into a monster?

Thank you for having the respect for the medium to pour this much effort and raw talent into your work, it really is a breath of fresh air and you will go very far indeed if you stick with it.

  23. I really can't say it enough, but thanks so much for all the kind words, everyone. I'm pretty bowled over, and I truly appreciate it.

    @Michelle: Don't fret! And apologies for the delayed reply. As in a lot of my stories, the reader is free to draw their own conclusions about what's happened (I've left a lot of details in there as possible clues to suit various interpretations), but when it comes to how I see the story personally, yes, he did actually become a literal monster.

    Granted, we are only seeing the Narrator's point of view, and the events are coloured by that. The husband's literal transformation does reflect a number of other things going on in the story though, and of course doesn't negate her state of mind throughout.

    Hope that helps somewhat!

  31. I came here via another friend, and I must say, you are talented and amazing! Margot's Room and Face All Red...wow. Thank you for sharing with us.

  32. Came here via I09 (in a roundabout way) and I have to say that I love the tone of the story and how multifaceted it is. It has this amazing "Rosemary's Baby" quality to it...I love the unreliable narrator, I love the perspective, and I love the writing that left me questioning everything--including the deaths of her father and daughter.

    Just remarkable.

  34. Awesome, just awesome.

    I've always thought women tell the best horror stories, but your work is simply outstanding. All your comic section is terrific, really.

  35. Your art is truly amazing. Just now I looked through all of your comics and I have to say I have a queazy feeling in my stomach; the horror aspect and tragicness of each story really spoke to me! I'm quite horrified by the stories (in a good way) and you really managed to convey that feeling well. Absolutely incredible, I'm actually terrified!
