Summary (from Goodreads):
“‘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…”
This is a creepy set of stories. It’s a graphic novel (or would it just be considered a comic? I’m not sure of the rules here) all set around the woods. For someone like me who is not into nature, I’m already creeped out. ;) I don’t want to spoil any of the stories for you, but they were all interesting and scary.
The stories are all creepy, but I think my favorite is the one that centers around the girl who goes to visit her brother and his new wife.
I wasn’t familiar with any of these stories, although they all had the ring of urban legends. As a result, they all felt familiar, even though I hadn’t really heard of any of them before.
The drawings were absolutely gorgeous and added to the almost claustrophobic feel of the stories. (WHY DO PEOPLE LIKE NATURE?)
