Cartoonist Emily Carroll is a favorite at ROBOT 6, and now we’ have something from her to look forward to next year: her first standalone book.
In July McElderry Books (an imprint of Simon and Schuster) will release Through the Woods, a collection of previously released webcomics like the popular “His Face All Red” as well as unseen stories Carroll has been working on. This is poised to be a major entry into comics for Carroll, and will act as a precursor to several other new longer-format projects the Canadian artist has in the works.
Carroll got her start in webcomics, and has made notable appearances in anthologies as varied as DC’s The Unexpected and The Witching Hour, Dark Horse’s Creepy s well as the kid-friendly Flight spinoff Explorer. Professionally trained as an animator, Carroll does work for comics, animation, and even video games.
Here’s a look at the cover to Through The Woods, available July 2014. You can see a preview at Comics & Cola.
