Reading the Weird Web Comic: Episode #8–“In the Penal Colony”

“Reading the Weird” is an ongoing exploration of The Weird: A Compendium of Strange & Dark Stories conducted by Leah Thomas. The webcomic follows the journey of Mary and Ed through ever stranger landscapes and encounters, seemingly influenced by the stories in the anthology.

For the holidays, we gave you the entire story thus far all in one post–episodes 1 through 7. This is a great way to catch up or revisit this wonderful web comic, or visit the archives for individual episodes. You can also read an Interview with Leah Thomas.
