Skullcrusher Mountain by suburbanbeatnik Skullcrusher Mountain by suburbanbeatnik
EDIT: Dark Valentine Magazine is no longer around, but you can read the novella here: [link]

You can also download the PDF here: [link]


This is my first illustration for Christine Pope's novella, "Welcome to Skullcrusher Mountain," a fun and loopy love story that's perfect for Halloween reading, which is now being serialized on the Dark Valentine website. The novella is based on the cult fan favorite song “Skullcrusher Mountain” by Jonathan Coulton about a mad scientist (is there any other kind?) who falls hard for one of his victims-- although Jenna Masterson, the kidnapped reporter, is more than a match for the scientist in question.

This illustration for Chapter One depicts the first meeting of heroine Jenna and Dr. Black, amidst the paraphernalia of his laboratory (including the all important Tesla coil).

Aw, I ried both the links to read the novella, but it lead me to a 404 error page. :/ Is there anywhere else where I can read the story?

Haha, I was going to ask whether it was based on the song! (Which I love, btw. :XD:) I really dig this take on it. Mad scientists... :heart:

Thanks! I need to post the other 6 pics. I'm behind because I've had bronchitis for the past two weeks...
