The Dark Matter Nanos – A is for Astoros

If I was a little more savvy, I would have had this ready for Halloween, but as with so many things in my life, I’m a couple weeks late and several dollars short.

For those that might be unfamiliar with the idea behind this macabre image, it’s an alien-twist on Edward Gorey’s The Gashlycrumb Tinies, a unique alphabet that presents the ghastly, twisted ends for 26 English children. So this is the first letter in what will hopefully turn out to be a 26+ alphabet for Supernova Lullaby. We are dealing with an alien language here, anyway.

But, I also thought this might give you, my dear readers, a chance to contribute to the webcomic, and so if you have some spare time on your hands, and a Gorey-esque idea that matches up with a letter of the alphabet (or, hell, create your own letter!), send your drawing my way. I’ll post it to the comic along with any website links that you’d like to include. And for your contribution, I’ll send you a character sketch from the galaxy of Supernova Lullaby.

Artwork can be sent to me at this address: msgierillustration (at) Thanks as always true believers!
