SKU: 9780571288656 Category:


A fantastically dark and timeless graphic debut, for fans of Grimm Tales, The Melancholy Death of Oyster Boy and the works of Neil Gaiman.

'It came from the woods. Most strange things do.'

Emily Carroll’s Through the Woods centres around the danger that lurks within the woods–literally and metaphorically. This beautiful graphic novel leads the reader into a nightmarish wonderland; its cramped and constricted panelled pages trapping us in a surreal Gothic world of magic and madness. Each story takes us deeper into the woods, as we work through the thorny maze that traps each character to solve the narrative’s many mysteries. There are moments of pure terror mixed with clever little nods to the way the medium can work, and although they are short stories, Carroll provides enough depth for the readers to relate to and sympathise with each character, making the dark and often unexpected twisted endings all the more horrific. Each story leaves us wanting more, questioning the fate of the unfortunates within.

Through the Woods is a relatively short read, but an extremely engaging one.
