New Goth House comics and reprints as they get reformated to work with the current site.

    • Quarantine House

      Inspired by this Washington Post article: Quarantine is endless dirty dishes. It was always a running joke in the Goth House comic that the house, in spite of being inhabited by a bunch of gothy posers who acted as if they survived entirely on coffee and cigarettes (and possibly blood), the kitchen was always full of dirty dishes, and nobody would own up to being responsible.

    • Armageddon Revisited

      Hey everybody! I wanted to revive the tradition of publishing a Goth House nightmare on Friday the 13th, but since everything in real life is pretty nightmarish right now, I was having trouble figuring out a script. I looked through the archives for inspiration, and saw this: Owen’s Nightmare, originally published — according to notes — on July 5, 2005, which wasn’t a Friday the 13th so I don’t know what was up with that. Owen, along with his wife Peaches (her real name) were recurring characters in Goth House world, evangelists who would sometimes show up to denounce Halloween or rock music or goth culture in general. I thought it would be funny to draw HIS nightmare. At the time I posted the original Owen’s Nightmare, I was experimenting with different ways of presenting an online comic, and it was done in a horizontal scrolling style that would look terrible on a smart phone. So, I sliced the images differently and did a little cleanup work to make that work. Otherwise, this is exactly the script from 2005, which has an eerie similarity to modern events. I added one image. See if you can spot it.

    • Goth House: A Friday the Thirteenth nightmare!

      Back when I was updating the comic regularly, I liked to do nightmares whenever a Friday the Thirteenth came around. Here it is, the first published Goth House Comic since… uh… 2009? Really? That long? The backstory here is based on a project I’m still PLANNING to do someday, which is finish out the story of the rise and fall of the band. The upshot is that after a rise and fall and a bunch of other events, the old Goth House crew ends up sharing a house together again, in Seattle this time, for money reasons. Some of them have teenage children even. Hijinks ensue!

    • Night: Friday, October 13, 2017

      Originally published 2008, not sure what time of year. The characters are me and my husband, not the Goth House characters. The files are all called “Night” so I guess that’s the name of the comic? Which is weird because I don’t actually remember and there isn’t a title page. When I was drawing the comic regularly, I would always try to post a nightmare on a Friday the Thirteenth. This comic is based on a nightmare I had. My zombie, vampire, and nuclear war nightmares always seem to end pretty much like this, with a weird semblance of normalcy restored.  

    • Goth House Buffy Tribute

    • Goth House: Goth House Thinks about War

      Originally published March 20, 2003. The first panel is because I interrupted an ongoing storyline with all the Goth House characters reimagined as supervillains, in order to write about the Iraq Invasion. The first phrase “I rarely get topical with the comic” doesn’t mean that I rarely got political. Mocking the religious right was always a feature, for example. However, when I started the comic I imagined it taking place in a timeless sort of gothic punk world, reminiscent of Edward Gorey’s work. Only his world stops around 1953 and mine stopped around 1983. ——— I rarely get topical with the comic, but sometimes…
