THEM Hypersigil: Post Script
OR the “Hold on a minute I have been too hasty” update.

PART ONE – PART TWO – PART THREE – PART FOUR – GRAPHIC NOVEL
POST-SCRIPT

Having recently worked on formatting THEM for release on Amazon, the hypersigil element of the book has been on my mind a lot recently. I actually re-read it last night and I have to say that it looks wonderful on my Kindle Fire. You can check it out HERE if you like, if you have Kindle Unlimited you can read it for free.

POST-SCRIPT

This part opens with Roman wanting to leave the City completely and we return to the scene which opened the story. Here we see “The Idea” has fully grown and starts to call out to Roman. THEM have become like tar and oil as Roman has warped the originally thoughts and memories out of all proportion. These beliefs tower over him and start to engulf him.

THEM as HYPERSIGIL

Let’s continue with the description of my Hypersigil with the next section, which was originally Issue Three. This will be a shorter post as this section has less going on Magicaly than the others.

Panicked and upset by the appearance of THEM, Roman reacts by running away. I wanted THEM to become a bit Zombie like at this point, less human and almost like a loop recording but still quite imposing, bigger than life and unshakable. I wanted THEM to start to feel sticky and slimey as the story goes on, to represent how hard it is to let go of ideas and beliefs once they have attached themselves to you.

Let’s continue our look at how I made a Hypersigil Magickal working with my graphic novel THEM.

So, last time, we got up as far as the car accident and the blossoming flower. The next scene (which was originally the opening of Issue Two) starts with Roman in Astral space with spooky stuff happening to him until he appears to walk back through the door to “reality”.

WHAT IS A HYPERSIGIL?

To know what a Hypersigil is, you must start by knowing what a Sigil is. Gordon from RuneSoup is my go to guy on Sigils so I am going to point you in that direction first.

Google tells us that a  “HyperSigil is a dynamic miniature model of the magician’s universe, a hologram, microcosm or “voodoo doll” which can be manipulated in real time to produce changes in the macrocosmic environment of “real” life”.
