Jikininki

Last year, I was contacted about doing a short ghost story comic for a startup magazine. I was excited, and proposed the idea of doing a comic based on one of the Oriental Ghost Stories, written by Lafcadio Hearn. They loved the idea and I was off. But, as these things happen, the mag went kaput. I was halfway done on my comic, and so shelved it for awhile. But I was having so much fun with it, I decided to finish it. I mean, even though nothing came of the mag, at least it gave me a taste of creating a comic, which is something I always wanted to do.

So here it is. It's called Jikininki, adapted from the short story of the same name.
