Happy Wednesday and welcome to a special edition of Waiting on Wednesday! Number 2 for the Santa Wishlist edition!
Today I am very much interested in the graphic novel for Are You Afraid of the Dark?. I really LOVED that show (the old one) and I loved that there was a new novel by Rin Chupo, The Tale of the Gravemother (see my review here). So I was super hyped when I learned a graphic novel would also be made, and just look at that cover! It looks awesome! Plus, I love that this one is more of an anthology rather than one story, which really fits with the whole idea of the show. The stories themselves, going by the blurb, sound awesome and I am definitely curious about the second story!
All in all, please please Santa, please bring this one on Christmas! I want to be terrified!
Based on Nickelodeon’s hit horror franchise Are You Afraid of the Dark? , The Witch’s Wings and Other Terrifying Tales is the first in an all-new horror graphic novel series with three original stories based on Hispanic urban legends and cultural lore from bestselling and award-winning author Tehlor Kay Mejia, which are beautifully and hauntingly brought to life by artists Junyi Wu, Justin and Alexis Hernandez, and Kaylee Rowena.
A new Midnight Society gathers around the campfire to share urban legends, folklores, and all manner of spooky stories. These three terrifying tales feature haunted buses, monstrous creatures, and spine-chilling mysteries guaranteed to have you reaching for the light switch!
In “The Tale of the Witch’s Wings,” a young boy with a habit of bullying meets his match when an ancient witch sets her eyes on him. In “The Tale of the Haunting of Bus #13,” a young girl finds herself potentially trapped on a bus haunted by more than just ghosts! And in “The Tale of the Stray Comet,” two siblings bring home a stray dog that is much more monstrous than they could ever imagine!
Are you afraid of the dark? You will be…
