Ritual (short story)

4 June 2017 ● 1 min read ● 4 images

+Here is the short story that inspired me and Simon De Boer 's comic, Ritual. Wrote this when I was 23 after seeing a man jump in front of a train in Ikebukuro. Kinda dark, but I became objectively curious what would of gone on in his head moments before…and this was the result combined with my discovery of Kafka, Kierkegaard, and Joy Division at the time. Also, thank you for those who have shown an interest to purchase the comic, we still have some copies left that can be ordered via paypal here:
