Peculia collects strips contained in Sala's ongoing comic book series Evil Eye, also published by Fantagraphics. Peculia, our intrepid, super-ish heroine, is a precocious and rebellious masked adventurer who fearlessly wanders her way through a world filled with zombies, monsters and more. Often compared to Edward Gorey and Charles Addams, Sala has developed a distinctive narrative and visual style that can best be described as gothic humor. The Peculia collection is an excellent introduction to Richard Sala's idiosyncratic universe of noir-ish mystery, suspense, and occasional whimsy.
