NOTES ON GRUMBLE: CHAPTER ONE – PAGE 14:
I had intended on not using dream sequences in Grumble. However, I started to toy with the idea that Ava, who has deeply repressed memories, is forced to face those memories through her dreams. In a scene on Page 15, Mindy Grant calls this particular dream a “vision.” In truth, this dream is a combination dream and warning.
Visually, I conceived Page 14 with some inspiration from Richard Sala's great comic book, Delphine, which Fantagraphics Books collected in a nice hardcover book not too long ago. The fourth panel on this page also references Bob McLeod's cover for Grumble: Chapter One, which is still creeping out people or disgusting them over two years after it was drawn.

Monster Comics, in association with the Comic Book Bin, joins in the launch of Comic Book Bin Sunday Comics or, as I like to call it, "Bin Sunday Comics." We are starting with the first chapter of my dark fantasy and horror comic book, Grumble (a relaunch of sorts). This will be followed by the debut of Grumble: Chapter 2, sometime next year.
The story focuses on Ava Benson, a young woman who returns to her hometown following her beloved uncle's death. She finds the town under siege and a conspiracy brewing.
The story is written by Leroy Douresseaux. The art is drawn by Diego Candia. Letters and production are provided by Jaymes Reed of DigiCaps. Monster Comics logo by Doug Erb.
