Reiko - Captive Audience

Share Collapse

Author Comments

This chilling little "Contemplating Reiko" cartoon short was made by Jonathan Ian Mathers of "Neurotically Yours".

"Contemplating Reiko" is a simple single-panel webcomic starring a sadistic little demon girl named Reiko. There's a new strip each week on Tainted-Ink.com



VERY well drawn, I kind of like the minimalism in this; though it does remind me of Emily Strange just a bit, maybe it's the minimalism & choice of colors, cuz the art is quite different. It'll be interesting to see just where this series goes AND how it's recieved by the NG audience. The style is easily recognizable as being the work of Mathers, but I'm curious as to why the different author/artist name/profile. Regards, ZB.


I like your jet black sense of humor. Surprisingly, it wasn't that bad. I really like the background music. It fit perfectly and was peaceful yet spooky at the same time. In short, I thought it was excellent. The overall idea could use some work but, the drawings, sound, and creativity were definitely good.


The idea is disturbing enough... but the presentation in color kinda takes away some "Reiko-ness".

I much prefer it in black and white.
The story is quite creepy, but the animation doesn't fit with Reiko's darkness as well as black and white does.

Well done.

It was a well done flash, no one can take the away from you. In this particularly unique instance I am quite glad you chose to step away form your normal flashes and tread into "new" ground (no pun intended). Congratulations, I look forward to seeing more of Reiko in animated form.

4/5 only diminished by length.
