Creative genius Nathan Jurevicius revives ScaryGirl’s first adventure in a stunning two-hundred-and-eight page read. Told over three parts, and with bonus content including original pages from Nathan’s sketchbook and character profiles, this new release will appeal to ScaryGirl’s legion of fans as well as capturing an entirely new audience.
After being abandoned on a remote island, ScaryGirl finds a friend in a kind, caring and super-intelligent giant octopus. Blister wants to keep her safe but ScaryGirl has questions about her life that need answering. Adventuring with Bunniguru may help ScaryGirl put a name to the strange face that appears in her dreams and could unlock the secrets of her past. Dangers, scary creatures and a journey to the edge and beyond await. Who can ScaryGirl trust? Is she brave enough to continue? What will she discover…
Far from scary, this beautiful, captivating and visually intoxicating graphic novel is spectacular. This is my first foray into the dazzling technicolour realm of ScaryGirl, and wow. Largely wordless, the striking illustrations do the talking as ScaryGirl’s world is vividly brought to life through an explosion of colour and an abundance of creative flair. It is the proverbial feast for the eyes all delivered in a mesmerising and unforgettable fantasy adventure.
Wordless books offer a distinct experience, drawing the reader in and allowing them artistic licence to unpick the action, plot a narrative and come to their own conclusions. ScaryGirl is sure to get creative juices flowing and imaginations running wild as vivid and and varied ideas are pieced together.
Eye-catching, intriguing and utterly absorbing, ScaryGirl offers a unique and memorable encounter that is essential reading for any fans of graphic novels.
