Through the Woods

Finished Through the Woods by Emily Carroll.

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?)

Highly recommended.
