Meghan's Madness.

So, for this week's presentation, I was planning on reworking the pitch for Meghan's Madness, my SPI project with Alejandro Aragón.

Sadly, just this week Ale has had to leave the project in favor of actual paying comic work. I wish hiom the best, but that does mean I can no longer participate in the rest of the competition, and I haven't been feeling very inclined to rewrite the pitch. Guess you'll just have to make do with the original, previously presented on the official SPI website:

Written by Niels van Eekelen
Drawn by Alejandro Aragón

Meghan and Clarissa have been best friends for almost as long as Meghan can remember. And for as long as Meghan can remember, there has just been one little problem. No one but Meghan has ever seen Clarissa, or heard her speak.

Clarissa knows things Meghan doesn’t, and she sees things that Meghan couldn’t possibly see—so clearly, she can’t just be an imaginary friend or a psychotic hallucination, right? Right?

But the thing is, Clarissa has always asked Meghan to do things, and Meghan has always done them. They used to be little things, pranks that harmed no one. Then they began to escalate, and now people are getting hurt. There’s a reason for everything she asks Meghan to do, Clarissa says.

Meghan is getting scared. Of what Clarissa will ask next. Of being caught, and being locked up again. Most of all, she is scared for her own sanity. But she just... can’t... stop.

Here, have some character designs and an alternate cover layout too:
