Vicious World Has Returned

So Vicious World has truly returned and the first few pages are such a tease!  Notice the touch of red on page 1.6?  That immediately reminded me of Edward Gorey's set and costume designing for Broadway's Dracula.  (For those who don't know, and most everyone who reads this probably doesn't, Gorey designed the sets to be black and white and the costumes were the same with shades of grey.  However, each scene also had a bit of red in it.  In one scene the red is the wine they drink.  In another it is in a jewel on Lucy's dress. This delicate touch was completely lost in translation from stage to film, unfortunately.)

But oh so cool, they have an Edward Gorey's Dracula Toy Theatre!  Lust want!

Whoa.  Way to totally digress here.  Sorry about there.  Here's the page to which I am referring but follow the link to see more of the comic.  And it's much larger on the official site too.  (And no, I am not the artist of these comics so let me put that out there now before someone praises my talent.)

Pages 1.1 & 1.2
Pages 1.3 & 1.4
