Who doesn’t love a good surprise ending? And it’s even better when the story is a little dark and a little scary, but so absorbing that you just can’t stop reading it. And then: the plot twist. You’ll never see it coming, not in these short comics written by Ehud Lavski and illustrated by Yael Nathan.
Lavski is an award-winning screenwriter and the lead game developer for Side-Kick, a game development studio specializing in motion games. Nathan is a UX designer and illustrator with experience in both graphic design and classical animation. The two artists joined forces to become the ultimate dream team about two years ago. Since then, they’ve been busy creating amazing comics with completely twisted endings.
Nathan’s clean and contemporary illustration style perfectly complements Lavski’s simple and uncluttered language. Their sci-fi stories make you think of British TV show Black Mirror, or even better, of Amazing Stories, Spielberg’s TV series from the ’80s. Written with a compelling rhythm, these haunting stories will raise the hairs on the back of your neck and send shivers down your spine, but most importantly, they will leave you wanting more.
Searching for an audience and hoping to strike a chord with people all over the world, Lavski and Nathan started uploading their comics online. The response so far has been amazing: they’ve been read over 10 million times! This incredible popularity inspired the creators to release their first collection as a free digital book. It contains three stories: Midnight Radio, Ark, and Test. Check them out, as well as a bonus fourth story titled Cold Embrace, right here, courtesy of Bored Panda.
