The first part of the story is also available on Newgrounds or my website (the second is in a slightly higher resolution, since there's no filesize issue there). Both are linked through my profile, or just go to:


The Boy with Nails for Eyes is an independent motion comic. The story is set in a grimy, grey little seaside town trapped by a brick-and-iron wall of factories. It 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.

In this chapter, the central character of the story, Bobby, sleeps - and a series of strange dreams drips through him.


The story is best viewed in FULLSCREEN MODE, but the text is larger than in past chapters so it should be easier to read without going fullscreen. 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 at my site ( k).

This is a poetic and an overall masterpiece. I have nothing more to say, you have left my breathless.

"Nailed" it

This is a huge step up. The illustrations are even more exciting than before, the animation is smoother, and you have nearly eliminated the problem with the resolution while zooming. This just keeps getting better, and I can't wait to read, watch, and listen to the rest of this tale.

too amazing!

it`s so much more, than just a simple flash comic/movie. It`s so atmospheric, feels like being in a crazy fairytale or wicked dream! that`s absolutely high class art of the 21 millenium
