February 2016 Book of the Month: THROUGH THE WOODS

This post originally appeared on Panels, which is now Book Riot Comics

Three young sisters bide their time at cards and worry when their father disappears on a hunt. A wary bride bears witness to the lonesome wail of phantom limbs through the floorboards. And throughout, wolves of all sorts wait and hunger and gnash their countless, dazzling teeth.

Later this month on the Oh, Comics! Podcast, we’re discussing Through the Woods, the highly acclaimed collection of dark, evocative tales by Canadian cartoonist Emily Carroll.

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 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.
