Humor is probably the best way to deal with waking up five years after you've died. That's what Travis Coates does, in a brand new body, with the same old head, still sixteen when everyone he's every known and loved is five years older. Sadness of course plays in a bit too, but I'd be getting aHEAD of the story and giving too much away, and I can't do Whaley's storytelling justice anyways.

Fantastically creepy and strange.

One of the most exciting new voices in comics, Emily Carroll’s unsettling fairy tales are atmospheric and lyrical, conveying a loneliness and vulnerability that connects the reader immediately with her unfortunate heroines. Carroll is a master of sowing subtle menace into the tone and settings of her stories, allowing her to achieve the most rare thing of all in horror comics—stories that are actually scary, and long before any monster appears on the page.

It can't be a coincidence that Great-Aunt Grace's initials spell GAG. Treasure knows it's the beginning of a disaster when her mother leaves her in Black Lake, Virginia for the summer. She'll be happy to move on as soon as her parents find a new place to live. But somehow, despite everything from Vacation Bible School catastrophes to cleaning every inch of GAG's candy store, Black Lake turns out to be hard to hate -- and it just might be the perfect place for Treasure's family after all.
