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 ( 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!

Five out of five, ten out of ten, you know we love it, now do it again!

Serious review: I have to say that this was better than the first one. There should be a section on Newgrounds just for these masterpieces! Thank you.

People find this review helpful!

Another great chapter. The artwork was spectacular again. I really enjoyed the image of the words flying away like dandelion spores.

I think there is definitely a place for motion comics on NG. I think any degradation f the image is a limitation of the site not the art. Although anytime I see this style of moving camera over stationary image, I always think of Reading
