There are few scenes more dramatic, more alluring and more riveting than the moment when the one of the main characters of a story makes the Turn: the moment where they change their convictions- for better or worse.

Kim Luster’s The Good Walker webcomic is what inspired me to write this newspost about dreams.

One reason why the movie Psycho is so iconic is, aside the expert directing and artistic cinematography, the fact that the one we’re led to believe is the main character of the movie gets brutally killed in the shower quite early into the movie.

Rain Has its Uses

Tantz_Aerine at 12:00AM, Nov. 18, 2017



These past few days in Greece we’ve had torrential rains that feel like the prelude to a second Flood- terrible casualties included. And that got me thinking that it rarely rains in webcomics.

Political Comics

Tantz_Aerine at 12:00AM, Nov. 11, 2017
