So I can't remember how it came up...Possibly we were watching a promo for the new Silent Hill game and I was all,"Pyramid Head, what's his deal? How does he get through doors?" and stuff, and I decided what the world needs is a comic strip of Pyramid Head in the rat race. You know, dealing with bills, taking his cat to the vet, trying to eat his wife's delicious casserole but being unable to so they have a row about how he doesn't appreciate her and is he trying to say her cooking is horrible or something?

Maybe such a comic strip already exists. I don't know. If not, it should. Of course, this picture does not depict Pyramid Head, but Cthulhu. However, the potential for a cross-over where Cthulhu is Pyramid Head's impossible-to-please boss is highly appealing. 

This post was brought to you by two hours' sleep. Don't try to understand it, okay?

It's hard to explain Pyramid Head over Twitter! Though I think my brain broke while delving into the SH fandom with some PH Sues that freed him from the darkity darkness with the power of their sparkly love. Nothing quite says "woobie" like a creature that can and will probably rape you to death with his giant overcompensating knife. (Though, there is a medal that you can win in SH5 that's a Pyramid Head that you need to collect in order to get out of your hell-spawn house that's got flesh locking all the doors. I want a real life version of that medal. SO MUCH.)

If you have some spare time, I do recommend reading the backstory on the Silent Hill games/universe because it is so awesomely fucked up. Eg, SH4 where the guy thought a room was his mother. And then there's evil cults, because why not.

I don't know if a comic exists where PH has a normal life, but I do know of Alien Loves Predator. They are so married.

I have so much love for AlP. Especially whenever Alien's mother comes to visit!

I shall inform myself re Pyramid Head, but I've already turned him into a tragi-comic character for myself, so I might struggle to let go of that...

Can I just say that the Newton's Cradle with cute little skulls in the illo--it's mine, I wants it, precious-s-s-s-s. (Oops and only into the second glass of wine of the evening.)

I imagine Pyramid Head is a terrible hoarder--the kind of guy who can't throw anything away and his house is a mess. If he was more practical, I think he would have ditched the wheelbarrow hat and massive effing sword a long time ago. I speculate he drags 'em around for sentimental value.

And his wife is always trying to sneak his stuff out to charity or carboot sales, and he always sneaks it back in again and hides it in the shed. Because even Pyramid-Head men have sheds.
