Directions “Right” – (2003)

Probably the most absurdist Directions installment. I’m pretty sure I smashed together a dream and a joke my father in law once told me. And although the joke is great and the dream is unsettling, the narrative wasn’t the point.

From a formal perspective, if you access all 3 of the interactive elements in the comic, you get a tidy loop of story. The end will send you back to the beginning and the middle bridges two disparate pieces of information. It’s probably my cleanest use of these techniques to assemble a circular narrative.

Some one a long time ago described this series as “a love letter to webcomics”. I think this was the clearest example of that idea.
