For more Carroll, The Yawhg is worth playing! It's generally less creepy than other stuff she's worked on, but can be brutally sad.

The tree is from His Eyes All Red, one of her earlier comics that is very much worth a read.

Yes, His Face All Red made it to the Blue a few Halloweens ago.

I went into it thinking it was a horror comedy, not comic.

I still have nightmares about Amigara Fault, should I even click this?

Would anybody care to share any spoilers?

Reminds me of Surface Detail. Excellent.

More sad/chilling than gross. The style of her illustrations keeps the horror in them from being too gross, even when there's blood and body parts. Maybe because there is usually some sly humor, or mystery, so you're not just focused on squishyness and blood.

That was great. I see she's the person who wrote His Face All Red, which is even creepier.

Yes, it uses horror elements but the mood is one of chilling sorrow.
