I really wanted to love this, and thought the premise was incredibly clever, but then it didn’t take it farther than describing the things the personified dark either did or didn’t like (with varying degrees of cleverness) and I felt like it felt short of it’s potential. Chaud’s signature illustration style is delightful.
