Queenie Chan, 2015 Bento Comics
Recommended for ages 14+
Contained inside are eleven stories that cover many genres, predominantly Horror with a couple of Romance and Fantasy tales, starting with a Mystery and including a ‘Cute Animal’. The genre variation makes for a great introduction to the wonderful work of Queenie Chan.
The illustration styles vary according to the story they tell, notably in ‘Forget-Me-Not’ a period piece whose visuals I believe are some of the artists best work and ‘Sleeping Chick’, containing more simplistic drawings that make very clever use of the page space.
This book is a great showpiece of Queenie Chan’s work, especially the way she uses space and perspective to great advantage both with text and images, especially in her horror pieces.
There is something here for everyone!
