Artists Create Comics With Twisted Endings (3 Stories)

Artist makes stories that are rather different and often, with unusually peculiar and sometimes depressing endings.

When it comes to the greatest story of the century, many of them have conclusive endings with the idea that the villains will be punished and the heroes/heroines will be rewarded. It is also common that the end of the villains are often cut short and the truth always comes to light at the right time. But writer Ehud Lavski and illustrator Yael Nathan make stories that are rather different and often, with unusually peculiar and sometimes depressing endings.

Some people consider them as exaggerated stories of reality while others love the fantasy side that Ehud Lavski make sure to include in most of the stories. They are also very short; mostly 10-15 squares long.

Lavski also mentions that getting inspiration from the story is never the same. Sometimes he has nightmares, sometimes they just pop up in a fully formed story. 

Recently, they started a Kickstarter project where they are turning 15 of their comics into a book that is aesthetically designed. Backer can pledge from $30 to get a beautiful hardcover version, so if you love these stories, consider backing them up and get yourself a copy!

Ehud: When writing, it all starts with a bunch of messy, handwritten notes. Then I turn them into a script in FINAL DRAFT, a screenwriting program.

Yael: I then sketch the frames on an iPad, to see how the story flows. Once we’re happy with the form of the story, I pencil, ink, color, and letter the comics in ADOBE PHOTOSHOP.

Stormy Weather

hud: There are many people that inspire me. But if I have to chart the DNA of our comics, the biggest inspirations are Neil Gaiman, Guillermo Del Toro, and Junji Ito. Creators who are able to find beautiful, fantastic and horrific things in every corner of everyday life.

Yael: I think there’s hardly a single illustrator I don’t follow online on some platform. I love watching people create beautiful works. But my biggest inspirations are Claire Hummel, Miki Montlló, and J.A.W. Cooper.

Kurzweil’s Time Machine

The book collects all 15 comics stories we’ve created in the last 3 years in a deluxe Hardcover publication. We pulled all the stops to make it the most beautiful book we could. The Bored Panda readers have been incredibly supportive of our comics. We want to make a book they’d love to hold in their hands.

This is just the beginning for us. We have quite a few stories we want to tell, some short and some fairly epic. Creating these comics is the most artistically fulfilling thing for both of us. We’ll happily spend the rest of our lives creating them.

Right now we have two book-length graphic novels planned. The challenge for us is that we’re passionate about people being able to read our comics for free. So the problem we (and a lot of creators) are facing, is how to make a living while not limiting our readers to only those who can afford art. It’s a hard problem, but it’s one worth solving.
