Overview
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."

Canadian graphic artist Carroll uses familiar horror motifs—the first wife's ghost, the monster that dwells in the forest—to create fresh and disturbing tales. Sure in her handling of line, color, and sequential art techniques, she revels in period settings, placing her five stories in identifiable historical eras that include colonial North America and the Roaring Twenties. Carefully drawn clothing and furnishings provide ironic backdrops for Lovecraftian revelations of parasitical possession and hideous evil. In the most explicitly gruesome story, a dowdy girl named Mabel is forced to stay with her prosperous brother and his perfect wife, who, Mabel begins to see, is a monster inhabiting the skin of a human: "I only wanted to wear her," the wife says dreamily of the housekeeper, whose bloodied wrist Mabel has spotted, "but when I tried her on, there was no stretch left." Instead of the gratifying defeat of evil, the gothic stories often leave off unsettlingly with a twist of the knife, just at the moment some fresh horror beckons. Ages 14–up.
