Through the Woods
Through the Woods | 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.

Weird and scary tales in graphic novel format. I loved all the stories. The only thing i did not like were the illustrations. Normally that would make me bail on a graphic novel but the stories hooked me in. 2 1/2 stars

Before the holidays, my friend and I checked out Our Daily Nada, a "boozy bookstore" in Kansas City with a small but I thought well-curated section of books. We enjoyed cocktails and fancy toast at the bar and I bought the tagged book. There's also a nice little kids space in the back and a family with the cutest toddler visited while I was there; she excitedly ran straight for the books. ?

I couldn't decide on a page to take a picture of to really sell this book. I really love every page, even the two that happened to guess my worst nightmare. They're stories that you think about after reading, and then you read again and again...
I was pleasantly surprised to find in the little about the author section that Emily Carroll lives with her wife and large orange cat. I'd like to know the cat's name, and I hope they're having a good day.

This was a pretty awesome graphic novel. It was a quick read but super creepy and absorbing. The illustrations absolutely captured the stories and completed them. And although it was fast paced/short - it really lingers when you‘re done.

A creepy read for a relaxing Sunday this time of year. The artwork was the star of the book, while some stories were better than others. All in all, a good read, atmospheric, beautiful and just the right amount of scary.

Loved this deliciously creepy collection of fairy tales/ghost stories. And the illustrations, colors, and sequences were just perfectly macabre and foreboding. I only wish some stories were longer or there were more of them. Very appropriate for the Halloween season ☠️🎃☠️

Highly recommended!!!!

Looooved this book! The stories were actually scarier than I would like to admit 😁 And the drawings are just beautiful, with a Victorian air but also very modern (I caught glimpses of present-day animation style, for example like Adventure Time).
100% recommended.

The artwork is stronger than the verbal narrative in these five macabre (rather than scary) and unresolved tales. That's not necessarily a criticism, merely an observation. I found that the effect was to sharpen my appetite rather than satisfy it. I want more!

These five beautifully illustrated short stories fall somewhere between a a Brothers Grimm style #fairytale and Poe. This was not a complete love for me, because it was too short and I wanted more pages, but the illustrations were beautiful and creepy, the stories unique, and there were several haunting lines, such as,
"But the wolf...
...the WOLF only needs enough luck to find you once." ?

"I knew the wolf wouldn't find me."
"Oh, but you must travel though those woods again & again, and you must be lucky to avoid the wolf every time. But the wolf only needs enough luck to find you once."
?
Five short stories. Decent enough art with subtle changes for each tale. Nothing spectacular, but a good read. Also fits the #readharder challenge of a comic written and illustrated by the same person.

This was for #ABookInspiredByaFairytale for #ReadingWomenChallenge and bonus for me because Carroll is a #CanadianAuthor 😃 She's from London apparently, not too far from me.
