Name That Trauma :: Reader Caitlin on an Eyeball Nest

April 17th, 2010 by aunt john · 4 Comments

Here goes – I remember having this friend growing up, and he would always show me really creepy comics whenever his parents weren’t around that scared the crap out of me (one even made me run out of room all the way home!)

Out of all the creepy things I saw, there is one that sticks in my memory and I think about from time to time. I’m pretty sure it was a comic or a book, and it was about a little girl who was lost in a subway station. She kept trying to get out and look for her mother, but she was always running into creepy characters, one which was an old bag lady or something along those lines.

One image stays with me – the little girl sees a bird’s nest and goes up to it, relieved to see something normal, but when she looks into the nest there are not eggs or adorable hatchlings, but human eyeballs. That is always the point where I stopped reading and would freak out.

Does anyone know what I’m talking about? This would have been when I was four or five, so we’re talking 1990/1991, but it could have very well been before that time. If anyone could help me out, I would really appreciate it!

    Afraid I can’t see anything traumatic about that.

    I have no clue. The nineties were quite the time for comics, but it sounds very close to the types of stories one my find in Sandman by Neil Gaiman. I tried searching up that issue in particular and could find nothing. Hopefully this will help narrow down the search a bit.
