This is a great big (176 pages) little (5" x 6") book, filled with comics in black & white and full color. Edited by Raighne Hogan, Little Heart is sub-titled, "A Comic Anthology for Marriage Equality." As such, the stories it contains are concerned with relationships, being different, overcoming obstacles and the like. There's a real variety of perspective on hand in these pages, along with some excellent work by creators of considerable talent. The two real standout stories are "Loving" by Noah Van Sciver and Joseph Remnant's "I Told You So." These are stories that will stay with you. Recommended - and now ON SALE!
This issue of Frontier presents "Ann by the Bed,"a stand alone tale of - you guessed it - bloody Canadian murder - by Ms. Carroll. The latest work in the gothic horror comics tradition which she has single-handedly revived through the works collected in Through the Woods.
Emily Carroll is back – with a vengeance! When I Arrived at the Castle is a 72 page gothic graphic tour de force in black, white and red. Ms. Carroll has clearly been honingher craft and makes the most of the larger canvas offered by the 8 1/2" x 11" format of this work, employing the 17" x 11" spread as the primary visual unit and aiming for maximum visual impact each time the reader turns the page. Readers will be treated to one terrific composition after another. When I Arrived at the Castle is a thrilling and sensual read.
