Prepare to get freaked the eff out by Emily Carroll again

It’s hard to believe it’s been less than a year since Emily Carroll burst into comicdom’s consciousness with her miniature masterpiece of a horror webcomic “His Face All Red.” In that time she won a Joe Shuster Award for Outstanding Web Comic Creator — quite a feat for someone who’d literally never drawn a comic before May 2010. Now that it’s October, the spooky season is upon us again, and what better way to celebrate than “Margot’s Room,” Carroll’s new webcomic? Once again it’s an innovatively structured affair: The landing page is a picture of the titular room, and every week a new line will be added to a poem at the top of the page, hinting at the objects in the room you need to click on to read the next few pages. (Hint: Start by clicking on the flowers.) So far, so creepy, but what exactly are we in for? “There Will Be (More) Blood,” Carroll promises. I can’t wait.

WOW! Somehow I missed “His Face All Red” the first time around, but that is a gorgeous webcomic! I especially love the page where the main character descends into the hole, following the scrolling of the comic… Scott McCloud must have swooned.

Can’t wait to see how “Margot’s Room” develops…
