The Pun-isher (I'm going to hell for this)

So *cough*, yeah, this is probably one of the toughest comics I've ever drawn. I know I make it look easy, but those three panels were hand-rendered one at a time in photoshop with a 1-pixel-wide paintbrush over the course of sixteen hours. It is only through this grueling process that I could truly capture the essence of darkness that, when you look at it, it calls to your very soul. Yeah.

It's such a bad pun on the name of the game, which is probably why I found it so amusing. But the name of the franchise as always been a bit of a misnomer, hasn't it? I mean, you always have a flashlight or a torch or something, and you're never truly alone, are you? You're always surrounded by all manner of monsters and creepy-crawlies. A more appropriate name might be "Screwed in a Poorly Lit Situation."

Just got back from seeing it. I found it to be pretty entertaining. The comic book roots are in there... somewhere. But they really took it in its own (still very enjoyable) direction.

Also, physics don't exist in that direction, I guess.
