Otomo's DOMU, with its beautiful drawings, keen sense of place,
and air of mystery, filled with both menace and wonder.

friendship, and the surreal and supernatural with equal
adroitness, Revoy brings the reader along on a fantastical yet
intimate journey filled with light and darkness.h

Excerpt from Antoine Revoy interview on PASTE MAGAZINE





g[…] Revoyfs otherworldly adventure moves quickly, but his succinct storytelling keeps readers on track with essential details. Both the contemporary and historical elements of the storyfs setting come to life in the manga-style art. Revoy makes effective use of thin outlines, cross-hatching, and dramatic, blacked-out backgrounds to create a spooky atmosphere for this mysterious, macabre tale.h

—PUBLISHERS WEEKLY





g[…] Although this is a ghost story, the spookiness is well-balanced with endearing moments of friendship, and there is beauty in the way the characters help each other change and develop. The Japanese-style black-and-white illustrations have sharp lines and detail, creating an alluring, eerie world. They capture emotions and evoke sounds, making readers feel as if they are in a real ghost story. The narrative and illustrations work together seamlessly to create mysteries that are baffling yet intriguing.

An eerie graphic novel mystery that is bewildering and unnerving in the best way possible.h
