For those of you who aren't familiar with Slenderman, here's a brief history.
He was created in 2009 for an internet forum on a site called Something Awful. The thread he appeared on challenged users to create a creepy image by digitally adding a paranormal being to a photograph, ya know, to scare the crap out of people and wot not.
The images and the character quickly went viral and in the years since Slenderman first appeared, somewhat innocently, the internet has exploded with fan art and fan fiction about the tall, pale, (well-dressed) faceless man. In some incarnations he sports half a dozen or so tentacles on his back, but since we all know those would ruin a perfectly good suit, I prefer the original.
Besides the art and the stories, Slenderman has been adapted as a video game for the PC called Slender, and recently had a new version released for PS3 (that's Playstation 3 for those who live under a rock in a cave on the outskirts of society on Antarctica).
In somewhat sadder news, just this past year insane children the world over have begun to worship Slenderman, complete with ritual human sacrifice and the maiming of parental figures. SO far, no one has actually died in the name of Slenderman (that I know of), so I think a government ban on him is at least a year or so off. Maybe children worshiping Slenderman is whete Black-Eyed Kids come from... I think I'll have Craig use them next.
If you have any requests for characters that would be cool for Craig to give a treatment to, like he did Slenderman, leave it in the comments, or Tweet us @AGComics, or you can head over to our Patreon page here, and while you're there consider contributing $1 or more per month to help us create our comic books.
