Arsenic Lullaby by Douglas Paszkiewicz

Arsenic  Lullaby

Arsenic Lullaby https://www.arseniclullabies.com/ is a 32-page, digest sized, black and white, dark humor anthology, Comic-Con exclusive sketch variant written and illustrated by Douglas Paszkiewicz. Published by A.L. Publishing.

Okay, as mentioned above this comic is a Comic-Con exclusive sketch variant. I guess that means you might not be able to purchase this exact version of the comic, but you can get plenty of Arsenic Lullaby humor featuring all of the same characters through the website. With all of that said, let’s jump into this witty, weird world!

Douglas kicks this comic off with a couple of one-pagers that quickly hint at the dark witticism that underlies the entire thing, such as Cthulhu consulting the local media in a desperate effort to spread panic! In addition to Lovecraft’s Great Old One, Douglas also manages to weave the droll and dark into entertainingly pieces featuring stillborn baby dolls, aliens, loser vampires, Pinocchio, and Baron Von Donut! This guy really can spin a funny yarn around unexpected things, and his clean, polished rendering style is a real visual feast!

Like I said, you might not be able to find this specific version of Arsenic Lullaby, but you can find lots of other great stuff by Douglas Paszkiewicz, including other Arsenic Lullaby comics at https://www.arseniclullabies.com/
