Overview

Sala's macabre worldview shines in this collection of noirish, good girl shorts.Peculia collects strips contained in Sala's ongoing comic book series Evil Eye, also published by Fantagraphics. Peculia, our intrepid, super-ish heroine, is a precocious and rebellious masked adventurer who fearlessly wanders her way through a world filled with zombies, monsters and more. Often compared to Edward Gorey and Charles Addams, Sala has developed a distinctive narrative and visual style that can best be described as gothic humor. The Peculia collection is an excellent introduction to Richard Sala's idiosyncratic universe of noir-ish mystery, suspense, and occasional whimsy.
