Snarky Candiru2

Sunday, 19 October 2008

It's a silent Halloween-related new-run featuring Elly and Lizzie that has a gratuitously silly twist ending.

Panel 1: We start off with Elly taking Mike and Lizzie to the Costume Corner.

Panel 2: Something has captured Mike's interest.

Panel 3: We next see him point to a display of masks.

Panels 4-6 As he tries on clown, goblin and witch masks, Lizzie laughs in delight.

Panel 7: As Elly looks at pumpkins she can carve into a jack-o-lantern and Mike tries on a monster mask, Lizzie's gleeful giggles capture the attention of a senior citizen.

Panel 8: She comes up and says Hello....

Panel 9:....and Lizzie howls in terror.

Summary: Since Lizzie is one of the freakish children that populate Retconland, she knows the difference between a kid in a mask and someone's real face. Since Random Lady was both real and 'hideous', she's terrified. In the real world, she'd probably have giggled.
