17 Times This Artist Came Up With The Most Unexpected Endings For His Comics

Who doesn’t love a good twist to the story? Something is compelling about stories that end not precisely in a way we expected. Remember Se7en, Donnie Darko, Gone Girl, or Get Out? All these films have something in common. Besides being some of the best movies ever made, they all contain a plot twist. 

There is a psychological explanation for why people enjoy plot twists. And the best storytellers have known it for ages! A couple of studies were made to prove that. But let’s get to the point here. Many storytellers use this trick to get the audience and their brain moving in one direction while setting up things, like a trap, to show them something else.

It seems that Mike Greaney, a comics artist from Australia, has mastered this trick and uses it to create the most unexpected endings in his comics. Mikes focuses on using humor to explore themes of human connection and disappointment and reframe Australian culture tropes.

Take a look at some of Mike’s comics and prepare to delve into the unexpected.

Times Historians Had No Idea What Something Was And Women Stepped In And Told Them

In class, I learned that when I don’t understand something, someone else probably does. It’s more useful to learn someone’s perspective in a field than to force your perspective and fail miserably.

That’s the moral lesson to be learned in this viral Twitter thread by Gennifer Hutchison. For her, there are things that male historians and anthropologists get wrong because they usually don’t involve women’s perspectives in their research.
