Fandom: Hopeless Maine
Genre: Assorted; supernatural, friendship.
Summary: The island of Hopeless, Maine, has been known to native peoples of the area ever since they started messing about in boats. Its several names in their languages translate roughly as ‘The place we go to only when we are young, stupid and trying to prove something.’ Read more here.
Warnings: Lovecraftian horror, death, body horror.
Notes: Funny story, actually: I actually came across Hopeless Maine while perusing my Facebook newsfeed. You see, I follow “Steampunk India” over there, (I know, how obviously typical of me) and the webcomic was one of the more recent suggestions/recommendations. And, well, being a fan of Lovecraft, I was immediately intrigued, and I am very glad to say that I am so happy I gave it a go: the artwork and style is gorgeous, the story and characters are really compelling, and, well, I don’t want to give away too much, but. Yeah. You should definitely give it a go, I think. Most certainly worth it.
