This interactive comic from Korea has blown up on 4Chan and Tumblr, although its author remains unknown. Just click and then scroll down. KEEP GOING. KEEP GOING. And make sure the speakers are on!
JUST CLICK WE’LL WAIT, in the unlikely event you have yet to see this.
Like Emily Carroll’s “His Face All Red” before it, this comic uses the unique properties of the web (albeit in a totally different way — you’ll see when you read it) to deliver an intensely uncomfortable experience. Read it yourself, preferably with your speakers on and nothing you can’t afford to drop in your hands.
Although gimmicky, this comic has clearly touched a nerve, having been reposted a zillion times on Facebook and message boards everywhere today. The first hit on “scary Korean comic” is Sherdog, an MMA forum. So people are looking and reading.
