Dogtown by Nathan Boucher

Tired of Cape? The crowded roads and beaches; tourist with their ice coffees and screeching children; chewing on salt water taffy and smearing fried clam grease on every door handle possible. Yes, it’s important for the local economy but as Massachusetts resident, where to do you go for a vacation from them? How about Dogtown? Cape Anne’s hidden gem has a historic history of wild dogs, suicides, outcasts, pirate treasure, hiking, inspirational boulder carvings, and witch queens. Tell them Thomazine Younger sent you! (It’s a sign of respect. You’ll still need to pay her toll. Everyone pays the toll… one way or the other.)
About the creator:
Nathan Boucher grew up in Worcester, Massachusetts so as a child he drew on aluminum siding with ball point pens. As an adult he jumped around, landed in Fairbanks, Alaska doing comics for the Fairbanks Square, and finally bounced back to Allston, MA to stay close to family. He also illustrates album covers for P-Funk band member Danny Bedrosian and the Secret Army. He likes watching C-Beams glitter in the dark near the Tannhauser gate and his milk steak boiled over hard. This is his first spooky story but will not be his last... muhahaha! More of his work can be found at
