Reimagining Scary Stories

John Humphrey


Storytelling is a universal method of sharing and communicating, and when portrayed through comics, have the ability to generate an interesting and engaging experience that can’t be produced through other kinds of media. “Reimagining Scary Stories” explores narrative and storytelling through comics by adapting tales from Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark, a series of children’s horror books by Alvin Schwartz. From within Schwartz’s library, this thesis is derived from the story “A New Horse.”
