- Full 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. A creepy, photo-realistic story told in line art, like a wordless novel but with brief text on the facing pages. A group of dolls find their hosts murdered and flee the crime scene, setting out on a nightmarish road trip. Creepy like Neil Gaiman's Coraline. Outstanding artwork.
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.
"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)
"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
