Gosh! Best Of 2022
Fans of Liu and Takeda's fantasy epic Monstress (itself a former Gosh best of) won't be surprised to see this here, the first book in an intended trilogy. In She Eats the Night, we're introduced to Chinese-American twins Billy and Milly, the children of Hong Kong ex-pats Ipo and Keon. The kids aren't meeting their parent's expectations, and it seems the family has a connection to an overgrown house across the street that might just be haunted, a connection we explore through flashbacks to Ipo and Keon's past that will inform the children's future. Beautifully illustrated by Takeda (of course), the pair have created another compelling fantasy about generational debts, only this time the horror is amped up to 11.
The first volume in a new graphic novel horror trilogy from Marjorie Liu and Sana Takeda - the creative team behind the New York Times bestselling series Monstress! Chinese American twins, Milly and Billy, are having a tough time. Forced to help clean up the house next door--a hellish and run-down ruin that was the scene of a grisly murder--the twins are in for a nasty surprise. A night of terror, gore, and supernatural mayhem reveals that there is much more than meets the eye.
