Lichloved 05

By Alexandra Queen

A moonlit starry sky is punctuated with the sssshunk sounds of a shovel and clods of dirt flying through the air. Panning down, a tombstone and a cross section of an open grave appears. Inside the open grave, a young girl in pink sets aside her shovel and hugs a torn teddy bear tightly. Future shadow knight Ashlinne recites Star light, star bright, first star I see tonight, wish I may, wish I might have the wish I wish tonight. I know Mommy's supposed to stay asleep, but please let me find Mr. Bear without waking her.

This week is the Piker Press's anniversary issue. We traditionally run not neccessarily the best, but some of the most memorable articles, stories and comics from the past four years. Or sometimes we run the ones we haven't thought about for a while. It's less like the Oscars than like flipping through a family photo album. This episode of Lichloved appears by suggestion.

Vote for 1542 on the Top 100 Comic sites!
