Damnit, I just got through the first one, and you already have a second. I'll read that later.:)

I liked the first with Robert. There are some small things I would change, including maybe adding a extra page so that Robert could have some interaction with the witch. I think a little banter here would not hurt. Still, very cool short story.

I see what you're saying.

It doesn't have to be the banter that sets Robert off though. They could be talking or whatever, then he sees the jar, and that's it. I guess I was looking to see the witch's motivations, or just a hint of them. Is she powerless now? Stuff like that.

I guess it's good when a story has you thinking and wanting more, so great job.

Hi
Really nice stories I thought.
Always been of a fan of short horror tales and how economical they have to be in getting a scary idea across.
The 2nd bug story worked particularly well I thought.
The first tale though had me confused for a second at the end.
The panel in the jar had me thinking of a photograph at first and I was wondering had I missed some significance from earlier.
To be fair though this might be clear when being told visually.

I think your idea with the moment captured in the jar works I think it was just the mention of panels in a story when you are just reading the words threw me off for a second.
I guess thats always going to be problem when somebody forgets what medium you are writing for.
I'm definitely interested in more.
Like I said I love horror short stories.
I've been reading a lot of Richard Laymon recently and I love some of his ideas he has in his collections.
So yeah I'll be checking in quite regularly.
I joined up here for much the same reasons, I want to get back into drawing more but making the time is always difficult.
I figured joining up a site like this should help motivate me after work.

That's very cool, Greg. Lots of heart with a cool twist. We should see if we can get one of your short stories illustrated for the anthology.
