Emily Carroll: Through the woods

Emily Carrollin sarjakuvakirjan tarinat ovat melkolailla hyytäviä, minkä voi arvata jo kansikuvastakin jos sitä vähän tarkemmin katsoo: Through the woods (Margaret K. McElderry, 2014; ISBN 978-1-4424-6595-4).

Teos on saanut Ignatz Award -palkinnon vuonna 2015, ja ansiosta. Lyhyet tarinat iskevät, jättävät levottoman olon, ikään kuin maailmaa olisi ravistettu paikaltaan.

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 fiancée 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.
