(Yes this is largely stolen from last years “best of” article)

There’s something wrong with the town of Shudder-To-Think, women regularly black out with no memory of what’s happened, there’s skinless men crawling out of holes in the ground, deer women lurking the woods and only two teenage friends willing to investigate what’s causing it all.

This is Carmen Maria Machado’s first comic book series, and she’s done a great job of telling an interesting supernatural, body horror tale set in small town America. I’m really looking forward to what other series she’ll write in the future. While I’ve praised her artwork before when I wrote about Coffin Bound I can’t help but say more good things about Dani as an artist; she brings forth a great combination of nightmarish horror and authentic emotion.
