Page 1: "It was a dark and stormy night..."

Here be A Five Nights at Freddy's comic written and drawn by yours truly.

For a long time I've suffered from artist's paralysis.  I'll try to draw something, but as soon as my pencil approaches a clean sheet of paper a shrill voice in my head tells me not to bother, I'll never get it right, I'll only waste my time, it'll be embarrassing to look at later, and so on.  All too often that voice wins, and I give up after spoiling the paper with a few halfhearted lines.

I decided to try to combat this by doing a comic.  I used to draw comics all the time.  In high school and college I did over 70 issues of Bangkok Alley, a comic about alley cats!  But these days the thought of trying to do sequential art intimidates me.  I try too hard to make it perfect, freeze up, and fail to get past the pencil stage.  This time I've decided to keep it loose, working with tools that feel comfortable in my hands: sharpies.  I'm going to do it quickly, using my comfortable, scratchy, crosshatchy style, and not worry about getting everything looking just so.  I'll just flat in the colors without breaking my heart on shading.  This ain't gonna be any great shakes, artistically speaking.  I'm here to tell a story, and if that comes across, then I'll be happy.

Anyhow, I hope you enjoy this.  I aim to post two pages a week, maybe three.  However, I'm not on a schedule; I'll post them as I finish them.

This comic is written, drawn, and copyright (c) Kim McFarland.  It is based in the three Five Nights at Freddy's games by Scott Cawthon.

Yeah, I think it was really well made, and I loved the story! But my favourite thing about the entire comic had to be the style it was drawn in, it looked really cool!

Thanks!  I used to draw in this style all the time, back in high school and college.  I was influenced by Robert Crumb.

Not sure if I've ever commented on this, but wanted to say I LOVE YOUR WORK!

Every time I see you've uploaded something I get giddy and full of glee to read or look at it. I hope your artist's paralysis is better these days because you are my favorite artist.

Your style is amazing! I really like the way you colored this. The flat colors with the crosshatching really gives it that old comic style. :D

I'm glad you like my comic!  As for a translation, how would you do that?  Would you post it below the pages, or replace the text on the pages themselves?

This is interesting.  :)

I usually use photoshop to replace the words on the original page

I guess it'd be okay to translate and post this.  I just ask that you not change the artwork outside of the word replacement, and let me know when you post things.  I'd like to see them.

Hey there 

i love really much you comic

Can the night guard see the ghosts? 

Or goin to kick ass SpringTrap >:3

I don't know if he can.  He leaves before the first ghost emerges.  But if he stayed he probably could, since the ghosts have been able to make themselves felt in other ways besides the animatronics: the hallucinations and phantom jumpscares.
