Through The Woods by Emily Carroll
My sister saw this graphic novel on the shelf and was compelled by she knew not what to buy it for me for Christmas. I am not a graphic novel connoisseur by any means however I love the melding of literature and visual art.
I loved this book. It was a collection of short, horror stories that took enough from the classics to fit neatly into the genre. And yet I found them entirely original and their endings full of surprises. They were chilling.
The illustrations were equally spooky. Beautiful in their unique design and stylistic gore. I highly recommend this.
