Through the Woods (Paperback)
This graphic short story collection is classically creepy, allowing your mind to imagine more terror and gore than what is actually present on the page. I love reading it slowly in the dark before bed. It's fun to reread even after you know all of the endings!
Each piece has the feeling of a vintage style horror fairytale, yet each feels surprisingly fresh and modern. The art is striking and Carroll uses it to convey suspense, fear, and the haunting silence that is particular to visual art.— From Sarah
Discover a terrifying world in the woods in this collection of five hauntingly beautiful graphic stories that includes the online webcomic sensation "His Face All Red," in print for the first time. Journey through the woods in this sinister, compellingly spooky collection that features four brand-new stories and one phenomenally popular tale in print for the first time. These are fairy tales gone seriously wrong, where you can travel to "Our Neighbor's House"--though coming back might be a problem. Or find yourself a young bride in a house that holds a terrible secret in "A Lady's Hands Are Cold." You might try to figure out what is haunting "My Friend Janna," or discover that your brother's fiancee may not be what she seems in "The Nesting Place." And of course you must revisit the horror of "His Face All Red," the breakout webcomic hit that has been gorgeously translated to the printed page. Already revered for her work online, award-winning comic creator Emily Carroll's stunning visual style and impeccable pacing is on grand display in this entrancing anthology, her print debut.
