There are two ways one can see their life, a good and a bad way. But, there can be another way to see it just how this Taiwan based comic writer Edd Lai is watching. The 29-year-old, Lai, is telling some intense reality of human existence through his dark and twisted short read comics. The stories are power pack and totally immersive, making everyone fall for his work.
In an interview with Borepanda, this dark storyteller told he has always enjoyed reading until he turned 19, that was the first time he started writing. “I was lucky to have my novels published by several publishers that were searching for young writers,” said Edd. “Since then, I’ve made writing my living, constantly pursuing this profession. I was also commissioned to write several screenplays for movies.”
Here are the 18 pictures from the comic book with unexpected endings. Invite your friends or turn all the lights before you start to read as it’s about to get spooky.
