The Devil

Publication Date: August 9, 2012

Chapter: Random Literature

In an effort to scare an old woman into kicking it, another old woman tells a spooky story about the devil and then tries to act it out herself. This plan actually works, thus proving that people in the 19th century were morons. Personally, I wondered what would happen if the Devil actually showed up in the flesh, hence the comic.

On a character note, I intentionally made the Devil's broom in the second panel look decidedly more modern and plastic than the old woman's broom in the first panel, in keeping with Satan's anachronistic nature.
