Mirror Monster is a webcomic written by rosiegh0st (formerly ghostieblu), and published on Tapas
Josie is your regular, average mischievous kid. Well, she would be if it weren't for those weird dreams of the mysterious woman in a dark forest she keeps getting.
Anyways, her relatively normal life is shattered when she comes into the possession of a strange mirror and a robot named Bug Bot who claims to be working for the woman Josie keeps seeing in her dreams. Josie then discovers that the mirror is a portal between worlds as she suddenly finds herself trapped within a parallel world known as "The Mirror World" and is now on the run from Erena and her minions as she tries anything to get her mirror back.
Mirror Monsters shows examples of
- Art Evolution: The comic's art becomes significantly more angular and defined as the comic progresses.
- Animal Motifs: Erena has a slight Wolf motif. Probably a hold over from an earlier draft of her character from a different story. Which, when combined with her signature red cloak....
- Fairy Tale Motifs: Gives Erena a possibly unintentional "Little Red Riding Hood" Type feel to her character. Plus, the whole story is quite similar to Alice in Wonderland and Through the looking Glass as well.
- Adorable Evil Minions: Bug Bot and Xenor, of course!
- Anti-Villain: Xenor. He really doesn't do much of anything villainous except for just so happening to be Erena's second-in-command.
- Ensemble Dark Horse: Xenor seems to be quite popular amongst the Tapas community for his dry wit and iconic design.
- The Cameo: A ton of different characters from various comics all appear as townsfolk at the beginning of Chapter 7. Most amusingly are the characters Flare and Flare, from the webcomics DRGN and Burning Shadows respectively, having lunch together.
- Fanboy: Xenor is a huge fan of the anime "Space Lover." For the rich "plot" and cinematic depth, of course!
- Creepy Long Fingers: Seems to be a signature of the more Gothic art style the comic seems to be going for.
- Noodle People: Another signature of the art style. Just look at Erena!
