The Barnacle’s Call

 The Thought: An online publisher, Blackship Books, opened submissions for one-page comics called "Horror Haikus." Each comic must have exactly 17 speech bubbles, and my script was picked!


The idea came from that nightmare I have so often: my teeth start falling out. But the thing is, LOTS of people have this same dream, and it's said to arise from anxiety. I decided to explore this idea further and imagine a darker reason so many people have the very same dream.
