“wh-what are you doing?” Billy said.
The boy opened the door a little and leaned his head around it. “Hey Dad, I brought someone over…” he said.
“Excellent…” came a voice from within, as Billy stammered in fear. The door opened fully, and a skeleton with glowing eyes said, “He looks — DELICIOUS.”
Billy froze for a moment, then ran screaming in panic. “AAAAAAA!!!!”
“HA HA! Look at him go!” The skeleton laughed.
The skeleton leaned against the doorway, still laughing. “He really thought I’d eat him! Hoo! The poor kid!”
“Ugh!” said the ghost boy, stomping into the crypt. “I never get to have any friends!”
Get copies of “The Boy in the Cemetery” formatted as a minicomic to give to trick-or-treaters, Halloween party-goers, goblins, etc.!
- Buy packs of “The Boy in the Cemetery” & my other Halloween comics.
- Buy it as part of a set with Halloween comics by other cartoonists.
- Right-click & download the PDF of “The Boy in the Cemetery” to print. All I ask if you download is that you email or leave a comment to let me know you downloaded it and how many you printed & where they went (for example, â€œ30 copies to trick-or-treaters in Putney, VTâ€).
Assembling the comic is pretty easy! Print the PDF double-sided at 100% (no scaling; don’t let the program “adjust to printer margins” or anything like that). Each copy of the file produces 4 copies of the comic; when you cut them apart, the pages will be in the right order for you to staple & fold. If using scissors instead of a papercutter, you may want to cut after folding. Staple in the center & fold. If you’re using a standard stapler, you may want to fold the comic before stapling or use a ruler to help find the center (at 2 3/4″). If using a long stapler, the measurement marks probably don’t go down to 2 3/4″, so line up a ruler with the one on the stapler to get the added measurement.
