Welcome to Night Vale was the most downloaded podcast on iTunes in July 2013 after its first year. What's Night Vale, you say? Is it a fixed location in space? A cult? A special tool used to scrub ectoplasm off your bathroom floor?
Imagine if Goosebumps, The Twilight Zone and The X-Files all took place in one small fictional town in the middle of the desert. That's Night Vale. The podcast follows the local radio station's reports.
If you love conspiracy theories, absurd humor and puppy infestations, then Welcome to Night Vale is for you. Unless you're Steve Carlsberg. If you're Steve Carlsberg, you can get lost.
All of the art in this article was created by the show's dedicated fanbase. Co-creators, Joseph Fink and Jeffrey Crator, have yet to object to any to the online fan art. Perhaps because they feel that their show is open to interpretation or perhaps because they went to the dog park and haven't been heard from since.
Enjoy this fan art! Or don't. Nobody can tell you what to do, except the Night Vale secret police. And Mayor Winchell. And the man in the tan jacket. Remain calm and repeat after me: I enjoy this fan art.
