The envious siblings : and other morbid nursery rhymes

Image of item
Book

First edition.

Eight gleefully macabre rhyming vignettes by an award-winning comics artist, as delightful as they are deadly.  Inspired by the dark imagination of Edward Gorey, Envious Siblings is a twisted and hauntingly funny debut. Comics artist Landis Blair interweaves absurdist horror and humor into brief, rhyming vignettes at once transgressive and hilarious. In Blair’s surreal universe, a lost child watches as bewhiskered monsters gobble up her fellow train passengers; a band of kids merrily plays a gut-churning game with playground toys; and two sisters, grinning madly, tear each other apart. These charmingly perverse creations take ordinary settings―a living room, a subway car, a playground―and spin them in a nightmarish direction.
