And here's the deliberately anticlimactic conclusion to the two-part Forever 16 Blair Witch Project spoof. I would have had this up sooner, but I had to put it through an emergency last-minute rewrite. Originally, the ending was more legitimately scary, suggesting that there actually was some supernatural force at work, and the final panel was ambiguous and left the kids' fates uncertain...in other words, it ended just like the dumb-ass movie I was supposed to be parodying. Thankfully, I came to my senses, though I had to throw out and redraw the entire 10/30/99 strip as a result of it. Never let it be said that I don't care about my stories.
This, of course, means I will now also have to rewrite next week's story, which I also tried to make sincerely suspenseful. (Fortunately, I haven't drawn that one yet.) I don't think horror is a good genre for me to attempt in the first place - it's much easier for me to just make fun of it.
