Booklist Review

Taken from his webcomic series, Craig starts off this collection of spooky stories with The Gravedigger's Union, a story about what undertakers really do at night. Although rich with character, it feels more like the beginning of a tale than a completed one. Circus Day tells the story of a boy who wants to see the carnival but gets more than he bargained for. Wonderfully set up and vividly detailed, it's an interesting take on a coming-of-age story. Finally, Craig ends on the strongest of the three, The Seed, about a man who is trying to flee from the horrors that wish to kill him. It's paced and paneled in such a way that the reader's eyes race across the page, along with the man, to his grim conclusion. The black-and-white caricatures with minimal color only add to the horror and pulp-comic feel of the piece. Much like the creepy carnival barker introducing each comic vignette, Craig delivers eerie and stylish samples of stories, letting the reader dwell on them once the show is over.--Blenski, Peter Copyright 2015 Booklist
