Eldritch Moments: Getting Some Tail


Wait a sec… it isn’t Wednesday… and what is this “Moments” Crap?

Well, folks, I’ve been kind of sitting in this little bit of the comic for a while.  You see, Eldritch was originally going to be a set of strips (Probably black and white), and they were going to be as much a story about a newbie werewolf and her friends, as they were going to be commentaries on my thoughts about the world. But, over time I realized that Faith’s story was too complex for me to handle well in that format.  What can I say?  I have no formal training in comicing, so I have my flaws. 

However, by focusing on Faith and her story so much, several of the character interactions I really enjoyed began to feel awkward in the script. Aspects of this scene will be referenced in a later chapter, but this was initially scripted to go in Layline. However, since Faith wasn’t there, nor did I have Faith’s usual brooding inner monologue going along with it, the scene felt out of place.

So, that’s where Moments comes into play.  I suppose you could call these little comics deleted scenes.  I plan on doing several of them and having them available for posting should I get sick or something and be unable to update the comic as normal. However, if I get enough of them done, they may appear randomly as extra content.

Also, for more on Kuanthropy, please read Montague Summers’ The Werewolf in Lore and Legend.

  2. Hi there! I'm glad you approve!

    *Laughs* Oh god, if only I had the time to make a second weekly update. Most of the time I'm struggling to get the normal pages done on time XD These "Moments" comics are mostly intended to be a back-up, in case I fall ill, have too many hours at my job to handle, or for whatever reason cannot do the normal updates. However, should I get a lot of them finished and tucked away for emergencies, there will random, unannounced updates, like this one today.
