Wrapping up the multiple horror-themed mini-comics I profiled here for Halloween 2010 is this little collection of things by Zan Czyzewski. A big fan of H.P. Lovecraft, Czyzewski's main story features a bored girl who decides to dabble in the occult, with comic results. Soon she's dealing with an elder god that's more of a bore than a terror, as it proceeds to wreck the house Cat-in-the-Hat style. She can unsummon the creature, but who's going to clean up the mess? The whole thing is done in only a few pages, but it's a funny story that doesn't take the source material too seriously.

The rest of the mini features some diary comics and a one-page description of an idea trying to fight against the power of a video game--and losing.

All of the stories and strips feature rounded artwork that would work perfectly in a children's book and nothing in the comic is inappropriate for a younger audience. Overall, it's a cute mini that shows off Czyzewski's art talents in a variety of formats. You can see more about Ms. Czyzewski at her website.
