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.

Artist Draws Comics About Being A Strong Independent Woman And Modern Life (20 Pics)

Striving for a better life or even better looks is always welcome and encouraged. However, not at the price of one’s wellbeing. Society puts high pressure on people to meet expectations that are neither real nor actually desired. Moreover, the stress of fitting into a “one size fits all” mold robs one’s joy in life because there’s no person just like you, and that’s your greatest weapon.

This is precisely what illustrator Lainey Molnar tries to convey in her artwork. Lainey is on a mission of “bettering the world for women.” The artist creates true-to-life and very aesthetically pleasing illustrations of what it means to be a woman in today’s society. In the comics, she explores the subjects of femininity, societal pressures, double standards, and various other issues that modern women face each day. Take a look at the beautiful illustrations Lainey has created. What’s your opinion? What are some of the stereotypes you believe women and men face today?
