Nightly Frights: Tag! You're It

A creepy man stalks the forest outside the houses of little boys so that he can sneak up on them and catch them for his own devious purposes? There's a "stranger danger" metaphor somewhere in this comic.

What I find more disturbing is how the parents flippantly brush aside the boy's story as simply his imagination gone wild. Pretty sure most parents would be alarmed to learn that a creepy man had popped out of the bushes after their child. Again, there's a stranger danger metaphor in here somewhere. Worst. Parents. Ever!
