I don’t know if combining the last line of the scary story and the first joke to come after into one comic strip is a good idea or not.  Objectively, I mean.

I think it’s great, personally.  But as a storyteller (especially in this day and age of comment sections under comics) you realize that you can never accurately predict how the general population is going to respond.

You guys- the ones who come right straight to Hubriscomics.com- probably get it the way I intended.  You guys wait, though, ’til this one goes to GoComics.com/hubris, and we’ll see how Non-Hubris-Specific Readers weigh in.  That’ll be an acid test.
