Description


." . . Coyle's work is groundbreaking. The imagery in Worry Doll is so far ahead of anything out there in terms of visual sophistication that it suggests a new way forward for the genre -- maybe a new genre altogether." -- Sebastian Smee, The Daily Telegraph
"An amazing piece of work." -- David Lloyd (V for Vendetta)
"After seeing Worry Doll my only worry is that I'll never sleep again. Wonderfully creepy stuff." -- Steve Niles (30 Days of Night)
A group of dolls find their hosts murdered and flee the crime scene, setting out on a nightmarish road trip. Matt Coyle's inspired gothic noir, disguised as a children's book and filled with hauntingly lifelike pen-and-ink illustrations, offers a dark and disturbing vision that won't soon be forgotten. This edition features a new Foreword by Shaun Tan (The Lost Thing). Suggested for mature readers.
"Nothing goes unnoticed in Coyle's meticulous, near-obsessively detailed artwork that marries the finest gothic of best of Bernie Wrightson with the intricate photo-realism of Arthur Ranson, yet with a verisimilitude neither has ever matched." -- All Star Comics
"I absolutely love it with a passion." -- Nerdy Show
