Scarygirl does not know who she is or where she comes from, only that she has been abandoned on a remote beach. She needs to find answers in a world peopled with wild and wonderful characters.
Scarygirl is a wordless graphic novel which has spawned a website, toy range, prints, an online game and (in development) a movie since it was first published in 2004. This release, in a 128 page hardcover with hot pink cover, will appeal to fans of the Scarygirl, but will also introduce her to a new audience. Including a two part story broken in the middle by an interview with the artist, and with photos, sketches and screen shots, there is lots to be explored, discovered and digested, as well as simply enjoyed.
Nathan Jurevicius is an amazing artist, and Scarygirl is an amazing graphic novel.
