From the publisher

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 humour 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 children merrily play 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.
