Someone whose work continues to amaze me (surprisingly her work is more oriented to a younger crowd)is the multiple Eisner Award Winning author, Jill Thompson. Thompson’s most notable work is her “SCARY GODMOTHER” series, which up until now were only available in singular form. However, this Halloween 4 of her books will be collected into the graphic novel form, and if you make the jump you can get a 4 page look inside the title that is both written and illustrated by Jill. Read on for the skinny.
“It’s Halloween night and it’s up to Scary Godmother to show one little girl just how much fun spooky can be! Meet Hannah Marie, who, with the help of Scary Godmother, stands up to her mean-spirited cousin Jimmy and her fear of monsters on her first Halloween adventure with the big kids. Later, Hannah joins forces with Orson, the vampire boy, to unravel a mystery near and dear to their hearts. Some of Scary Godmother’s closest (and most frightful) pals get in on the fun too, including Bugaboo, the Boozle, and Skully Pettibone.
Four of Thompson’s Eisner Award-winning, fully painted children’s books are collected here, in their entirety, for the first time (Scary Godmother, Revenge of Jimmy, The Mystery Date, and The Boo Flu). This deluxe edition also features some of the earliest concept designs for this haunting and imaginative series.”
