it was amazing
bookshelves: books-i-would-blurb

This was really, really good.

It's the sort of comic that I read and immediately wanted to lend to my friends. Or, preferably, buy them their own copies so the bastards won't steal mine.

I liked the feel of it, like an old-school faerie tale. A nice, tight, well-written story. A little mystery, a little humor, a little horror. It made me smile in places and get a little weepy in others.

I could go on at length, but that's it in a nutshell. It was excellent.

Apparently this is one of the first endeavors of a new comic publisher: Improper Books.

If this is the sort of thing they're going to keep doing, I'm going to have to make a habit of them, stalking their release schedule mercilessly through the dense foliage of the interwebs.

I got an early look at this because the artist is a fan of my writing, and they mailed me an early version of the book. But it's being released internationally in July.

If you want to look at a preview and maybe order a copy for yourself, you can get details here....

Kristin Awesome, love old-school faerie tales. I am a school librarian. Random question-if I was to stock said book in my collection, do you think it should be in a high school or middle school library?

Kevin Syers Just read the 12 page teaser on the website. This really looks good.

Jane I got this from my local branch of the UK's Travelling Man shop two weeks ago (and it's brilliant), so must have come out earlier in the UK? Try here: http://www.travellingman.com/product/...


Patrick They did a limited run in the UK. That's also the version I got hold of....
