A monster calls comic strip

A monster calls comic strip

Storyboard Text

  • Conor wakes up from a nightmare about a monster at 12:07, the same time as always.
  • He finds a monster outside his window, but it's the wrong monster (not the one from the dream). This monster is actually a yew tree come to life, and it tells Conor it will tell him three stories over multiple nights.
  • I guess...
  • Are you ready for the first tale?
  • He takes care of his mother, who's dying of cancer, until she gets so sick that his grandma has to come and visit.
  • Oops sorry I spilled the drink on your work
  • Conor shuffles between his grandma's house and his mom's hospital room, with a brief visit from his dad, while his mother gets sicker and sicker. And sicker.
  • When the monster comes to visit, Conor listens to the stories, even though he thinks they're lame because they always have convoluted morals that are never what you'd expect.
  • He gets bullied at school and/or handled with kid gloves because of his mom's illness.
