#120 - The Doctor Is Out - in A Cabin In The Woods
Full disclosure because I am a brutally honest person, I added 3 panels to this page, especially for you new readers here. I hope you feel special! I realized just recently that this project has really largely been for the benefit of longtime readers and more like bonus/supplement to things they kinda already know, and as a being who exists in 2 timelines right now (comic-wise) I forget that I haven't established things in the comic timeline PAST yet. Also, this was a sequence that was already part of the "script" that I cut because I was making all these pages at the same size, and there wasn't enough room for all the art on 1 page but not enough for a second page. The only other thing I left out was a small scene of little brother Hector telling Vic that everyone thinks he's crazy, but my decision to have the gossip narration on the phone kinda put the kibosh on that.
So here's some more insight to why Vic's mom and dad think he's crying wolf for attention. The Babadook wasn't a thing when I wrote this, but I think it's a fair comparison to what kind of relationship they have... except [spoiler]Vic is the only one in the family that sees it.[/spoiler]
Of course the demonic books his mom is talking about are Goosebumps, a mythology book and a kidsy vampire encyclopedia. He's just doing research (except for the Goosebumps, that's just relatable to him being that they're mostly about kids having to fight monsters while no adults help or even believe them) but Hector had to go and tattle, didn't he?
