Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

and#160;
Itand#8217;s a perfect beach day, or so thought the family, young couple, a few tourists, and a refugee who all end up in the same secluded, idyllic cove filled with rock pools and sandy shore, encircled by green, densely vegetated cliffs.

But this utopia hides a dark secret.

First there is the dead body of a woman found floating in the crystal-clear water.

Then there is the odd fact that all the children are aging rapidly. Soon everybody is growing olderand#151;every half hourand#151;and there doesnand#8217;t seem to be any way out of the cove. Levyand#8217;s dramatic storytelling works seamlessly with Peetersand#8217;s sinister art to create a profoundly disturbing and fantastical mystery.

Praise for Sandcastle:

and#147;Begins like a murder mystery, continues like an episode of The Twilight Zone, and finishes with a kind of existentialism that wouldnand#8217;t be out of place in a Von Trier film.and#8221; and#151;Publishers Weekly, starred review

Synopsis:

In Los Angeles, Ray is sitting in gridlock when he receives a call from an LAPD officer with news about his wife. Fearing the worst, he listens intentlyand#151;but suddenly the caller and everyone else around him disappears. In London, the moment two commuters catch sight of each other on a packed Monday morning tube train, everyone around them vanishes. In Japan, comic artist Yoshi has come to the Aokigahara Forest to hang himself. But when the attempt fails and he slides free, the forest comes alive with mythological creatures. Taking us through the empty freeways of Los Angeles, the deserted streets of London, and the dream world of the Aokigahara Forest, Celeste is an ambitious and profound graphic novel that explores what it means to be alive.

Synopsis:

The supernatural stories that make up Robert W. Chambersandrsquo;s classic piece of weird fiction are tied together by a play that brings madness to all who read it: The King in Yellow. Itandrsquo;s a book that draws readers in with an irresistible yet innocent opening act, then drives them insane with the poisonous words of Act 2. Itandrsquo;s a book that cannot be suppressed, spreading like a disease from city to city, continent to continent. An influence on writers from H. P. Lovecraft to Neil Gaiman, The King in Yellow is one of the most important works of American supernatural fiction. In this dangerously unputdownable graphic-novel adaptation, I. N. J. Culbard brings to life a thrilling tale of horror that will make readers laugh and cry and tremble with fright . . . Read at your own risk.
