Between the borders of Civilization and the Faery, lies the old, abandoned Writer’s Block. If you take the third dead end to the right, you’ll find the Skelter and its eclectic inhabitants. This is their story. Except, it isn’t, really. Friendships are hard. Zombie friendships are harder. A surprisingly lively comic about two undead roommates.
Once upon a time, there was a traveling carnival with all manner of wonderful creatures within it. But one night, the carnival was abandoned and all the animals escaped out into the world. What happened to the carnival and it’s menagerie of animals?

The Dark Menagerie is a jewelry line of handmade, acrylic pendants each containing a story that tells what happened on that fateful night. “Quality rises to the top,” they say. “If you’re good, you’ll get noticed,” they reassure you. Your family, friends, and teachers are all well meaning, but quite wrong. If you want an audience, you must intentionally build a broader community that likes your work and wants to see more of it. Close your eyes and lend your ear to the legends of old.
