‘It came from the woods. Most strange things do.’
Five mysterious, spine-tingling stories follow journeys into (and out of?) the eerie abyss.
These chilling tales spring from the macabre imagination of acclaimed and award-winning comic creator Emily Carroll.
Come take a walk in the woods and see what awaits you there…
Ok so the artwork in this book is amazing. Unfortunately that’s pretty much the only good thing I can say about it. When I got this I thought it was going to be one story in graphic novel form. That’s not the case though. This is 5 short stories. Each story gives you enough where you’re starting to get sucked in and then the story would end. All 5 stories have open endings and I hate that. I didn’t find it creepy or scary but nothing tends to scare me so I can’t fault it for that. That’s really all I can say about this graphic novel.
Have you read this? What did you think? Do we have any of the same opinions on it?
