The Circle by John and Reuben

The Circle by John and Reuben

‘The Circle’ written by Reuben Lulam and illustrated by John Lalchhanchhuaha (you can check out his art work here http://chhana.deviantart.com/) is a very interesting work with importance being given equally to the art and to the script. The story is a thriller/ horror with an unexpected twist at the end and the simple and joyful scene at the start of the work builds up to the twist. There is only one page with a script and yet the script on this page does not reveal much instead it helps to build the suspense/mystery. The rest of the story is told through the images and the well placed panels. Considering that this worked emerged after a one day workshop we can only imagine what works the duo will produce on future collaborations!
