Artist Edd Lai is on a mission to bring some light into our lives and he's creating dark comics to do so. Mixing the real with the surreal, the 29-year-old from Taiwan is creating horror stories that are quite short yet totally immersive. And it's not just the Internet who's in love with Edd's dark drawings.

"I have always enjoyed reading," Edd told Bored Panda. "And I like all kinds of books, including graphic novels. But it wasn’t until I was 19 that I started writing creepy stories. I was lucky to have my novels published by several publishers that were searching for young writers. Since then, I’ve made writing my living, constantly pursuing this profession. I was also commissioned to write several screenplays for movies."

"My greatest passion lies in graphic arts — I enjoy telling scary stories not only through words, but through pictures as well," the artist said. According to Edd, adding visuals allows him to portray his feelings and plot twists way better."

"[Currently], I'm working on my new experimental series, titled Edd Lai's Stories."

To someone who isn't familiar with his horror comics, Edd would describe it as 'horrifying' but in a 'bright and delightful' way. "[Through my comics], I try to explore the different facades of humanity, highlighting our perception of the world." Both the good and evil. The hero and the villain. "We tend to label everything we know, but there's often a difference between the way a thing looks, and the way it is underneath its appearance."

Edd thinks it's the tone of his stories that make them stand out from the rest. "My stories might appear to be dark, but they can be delightful or even cute. The pieces I've written for Edd Lai's Stories are short, [but they have] a sudden twist at the end, which makes them super dramatic." The artist said he wants the readers to participate in his stories, filling in the gaps. "I love when my readers ask me a lot of questions about my stories. Also, since the stories are so sharp, they're good candidates for movie and other kinds of adaptations."

And even though the artist admitted he has a dark place in his heart, he doesn't let it control his personal life. "The most important thing is that we can always choose to light up the night."

The writing of the strips need work. The words are misspelled and also the grammar is off.
