Turn the lights on before reading…

 

Almost everyone likes a good comic. And the subjects available are abundant. From satire to feel-good humor and social critique to black humor. What is rarely encountered though, are creepy comics. Like, really shuddersome content that makes you wish you didn’t read alone.

The comics of Taiwan-based comic artist Edd Lai fall under this category. The artist said in an interview that he always enjoyed reading. He started writing at the age of 19.

“I was lucky to have my novels published by several publishers that were searching for young writers,” said Edd in his interview with Bored Panda. “Since then, I’ve made writing my living, constantly pursuing this profession. I was also commissioned to write several screenplays for movies. [Through my comics], I try to explore the different facades of humanity, highlighting our perception of the world. We tend to label everything we know, but there’s often a difference between the way a thing looks, and the way it is underneath its appearance.”

Edd Lai is currently working on an experimental series titled “Edd Lai’s Stories”.

The artist says that even though his stories may appear dark, they can be delightful or even cute. “The pieces I’ve written for Edd Lai’s Stories are short, [but they have] a sudden twist at the end, which makes them super dramatic,” says Edd.
