I stumbled across the webcomic Out of Skin and was taken by the stark language and stunning, almost greytone, graphics.
The prose also delivers: “The moon shone clean and white as a skull.”
The story is a period piece, perhaps late nineteenth century. It centers around a woman, who lives alone in the woods, discovering a grave of pale corpses uncovered by the rain. The mystery of what happens drags her down some creepy paths. Namely a tree with flesh for bark and hands for leaves.
Truly a work of fiction that delves into some deep places of horror. Read and enjoy.
I don’t think I will. lol That sounds too scary!
