***STRONGLY RECOMMENDED: WATCH IN FULLSCREEN***

***ALSO RECOMMENDED: WATCH THE FIRST PART BEFORE THIS ONE***
The first part of the story is also available on Newgrounds or my website, both linked through my profile.

The Boy with Nails for Eyes is an independent motion comic, set in a grimy, grey little seaside town trapped by a brick-and-iron wall of factories. The story follows a young boy as he undertakes a quest that will draw him to the town's knotted heart, and into the domain of the shadowy hunger that stalks its streets.

The chapter introduces the central character of the story, and relates a life changing event that happened to him several weeks ago...

***

The story is best viewed in FULLSCREEN MODE, so that the text is clearly legibile without having to use the zoom function. Full instructions on viewing the story are given in the loading screen.

A lofi version of the comic, featuring the images and text only, is available on my website (www.basement-garden.co.u k), which is linked from my profile. Also available are wallpapers and music downloads.

A quick note on the text, since a few people have mentioned this before. I always intended the comic to be viewed fullscreen (I even considered making it obligatory, or automatically going to fullscreen when the comic starts, but I don't like that idea any more than, probably, anyone else does), which is the size at which the text is comfortably legible.

Unfortunately the highest file dimensions allowed by Newgrounds is even smaller than the original file dimensions (1060px/745px), so for this reason fullscreen is an even better idea from my point of view. There is a click-zoom function, in case it's desired.

And enjoy!

Cheers

Superb

well, let me start of by saying sorry, because, i just recently learned by clicking on the selected on the animation itself it wouldn't just fast forward the scenes but it would zoom it in, so... sorry about that "font too small" on the first part.. but other than that your work is Superb, nothing else i could... i just wish the next one would be released soon
