Emily Carroll’s His Face All Red and Other Stories headed to boookstores via Simon & Schuster

Webcomics wunderkind Emily Carroll is taking her deliciously dark comics to dead tree. According to Publishers Weekly, Simon & Schuster’s Margaret K. McElderry Books will be publishing His Face All Red and Other Stories, a book-length collection from the celebrated (mostly) horror-comic creator. The book will also be released in the UK through Faber & Faber and in Italy through Stile Libro.

As a big fan of Carroll’s vibrant colors, exquisite pacing, and genuinely creepy, genuinely bleak stories of murder and monstrousness, I’m really looking forward to this one. I’m doubly curious to see how her existing stories, which frequently make use of the “infinite canvas” of the web in terms of layout, translate to the printed page.

Carroll, might I remind you, had never drawn a comic prior to May 2010. So, y’know, holy smokes.

Well that’s absolutely splendid news!

I am as happy as a pig in pants. I can’t wait!

She’s awesome. I’m not surprised it takes someone new to comics to make on that good.
