The Envious Siblings - And Other Morbid Nursery Rhymes

Author(s): Landis Blair; Anon

Graphic Novels

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.


Envious Siblings heralds a brilliant new cartooning talent, and will captivate readers who have thrilled to the lurid fantasies of Roald Dahl, Quentin Blake, Charles Addams, Shel Silverstein, and Tim Burton.
