October is my favourite. Besides the autumn climate and pumpkin all the pieces (sure, I generally is a little fundamental generally), I freakin’ love Halloween. I additionally love nursery rhymes, fairy tales, and individuals who flip already questionable youngsters’s classics into terrifying tales. Have You Any Fear? hits each checkbox.
With quite a lot of creators including their skills to the ten-episode horror anthology sequence, the Webtoons webcomic amplifies the quiet sinister aspect of those rhymes and narratives meant for youths. Many of those tales have darkish origins, and whereas these variations are contemporary and distinctive, the essence of that darkness is there, occasions one million.
Some are twisted variations that solely reference the originals, like “Ring Around the Rosie” by Ben Templesmith, taking the idea of the lyrics to new, cultish ranges. The second episode relies on “Bobby Shafto’s Gone to Sea” (written by James Maddox, illustrated by Morgan Beem, lettered by David Stoll, and edited by Bekah Cadden). While not as widespread as a few of the different tunes used, this one is perhaps my favourite installment. The artistic staff weaves a tragic, creepy ghost story primarily based on the centuries-old rhyme and makes use of the distinctive artwork type to reinforce the surreal high quality of the piece.
