So it’s always lovely to have a graphic novel that makes the scary stuff seem nice for the kids. My Friend the Ghost, The Misunderstood Witch, The Gill-Man Came for Lunch; that kind of thing. But sometimes you just need something with a bit of edge, something that actually has some Goosebumps-style scares under the hood, and Graham Annable’s new graphic novel is just that thing. Five creepy tales unspool as an increasingly weird teacher encourages her students to tell the eeriest tale they know, from fish-people to time-loops, to chatty severed heads. Annable is an animator by trade (he was co-director of Laika film The Boxtrolls), but he’s no stranger to comics. He’s produced short pieces and graphic novels throughout his career for kids and adults, but this is a perfect matching of his styles into one spooky roller-coaster ride. Parents: time to make some horror fans!
