Through the Woods by Emily Carroll

Five chilling tales of gothic horror are what await you in this beautiful graphic novel by Emily Carroll.
The stories are claustrophobic, dark and mesmerising. Almost all of the stories revolve around young women being transformed in a traumatic, psychological way. It's a graphic novel you could read one hundred times and still find a little nugget of creepiness.
The genius of this book is that a lot of the horror is implied. As a fan of horror, nothing ruins a tale more than learning the back story of the villain or monster.

There's none of that here, Carroll leaves a lot of "What next?!" to the reader's own imagination and I can guarantee you your imagination will be running wild long after you gently put this book back on your coffee table over the fear of being too rough with it and waking something up that should stay asleep.

If you haven't checked this brilliant graphic novel out yet, please do, you won't regret it!
