Cloonan, an artist with her name on a few superhero comics, applies her talent to this trio of dark fairytales set in Nordic lands. Her spare, intense drawings pair perfectly with her spare, intense language, leaving the reader's imagination just the right amount of space to dance within the frames. Cloonan's storytelling techniques, especially in "The Mire," will astound you.
