YMMV: Beasts of Burden

  • Fridge Horror: During the Demonic Possession in "Lost", the dogs break into a house to brutally murder a teenager. At first you're horrified that the ghosts of freaking baby animals would want to do such a thing, but take a good look at the teenager's collection of animal skulls and collars... Not only that, but there's a jar of eyeballs on one shelf.
    • It's not just a few skulls, either: the boy has an entire box of them stashed in his closet. He's been at this for quite a while — possibly even years.
    • The panel showing the inside of the boy's closet, as well as the last panel of the comic, are Fridge Horror personified. The longer you stare at them, the more it becomes clear exactly what the boy was doing to those missing animals...
    • It also becomes darker when you know that serial killers start out by killing small animals, and they usually keep trophies of their victims.
  • He Also Did: You might remember Jill Thompson from her work illustrating Neil Gaiman's The Sandman, as well as writing/drawing the Sandman manga Death: At Death's Door, The Little Endless Storybook, or Scary Godmother. Evan Dorkin has done some work on The Goon.
  • Nausea Fuel: The frog creature.
  • Nightmare Fuel: Many examples, but first and foremost are the ghost puppies. Doesn't sound scary? Oh, you have no idea how wrong you are...
  • Tear Jerker: Are you an animal lover? Chances are very good you will want to hug your pets after reading one issue. Especially the ghost puppies story.
    • The story with the boy who turns out to be a werewolf. If you're not crying by the end of it, get your eyes checked.
