Behind You is an ongoing series of illustrations made by illustrator Brian Coldrick since 2015. Each is a "one shot horror story," and although it's now collected into a book, they're so much better animated. A perfect way to get ready for Halloween. (previously)

I managed to hold out through about 15 of them until I could no longer resist the urge to look behind me. Creepily cool!

I love these! They strike a nice balance of spooky and creepy. I also love that they're posted year-round -- don't get me wrong, I love Halloween specials, but I'm always grateful when spooky stuff isn't limited to October.

The streetlight thing happens to me sometimes. I assume it means I have a superpower I don't yet know about.

These are really cool, I really like this one panel horror premise.

I am highlighting this one because it's lack of an Oxford comma undercuts the horror, which is itself horrifying.

There are lots of really good uses of the narration being the voice of the person whose back is turned ... or is it?

They remind me in a way of a more erudite version of RK Milholland's occasional "Rhymes with Witch" series like this:

It's been spotty for the last little while, but just last week new strips appeared

Like a modern-day sort of Edward Gorey! Love it.

Been following since the start. Very nicely done bits of creepy.

Wonderful stuff!

These would make good writing prompts—reminds me of a creepy version of The Mysteries of Harris Burdick.
