Emily Carroll chats about her new graphic novel ‘A Guest In The House’, her creative process and her thoughts on A.I. for comic book creation.
Here’s my chat with Emily Carroll about her latest book A Guest In The House from First Second.
Based in Ontario, Emily Carroll is the writer and artist of numerous award-winning comics, both online and in print. Her debut horror comics collection, Through the Woods, won both the Eisner Award and the British Fantasy Award in 2014. Her work includes When I Arrived at the Castle from Koyama Press, a baroque horror story dealing with lust and addiction, and a graphic novel adaptation of Laurie Halse Anderson’s novel Speak. She is also known for the short comics she posts on her website. Her most recent work is A Guest In The House published by First Second.
The story of A Guest In The House goes like this: “After many lonely years, Abby’s just gotten married. She met her new husband—a recently widowed dentist—when he arrived in town with his young daughter, seeking a new start. Although it’s strange living in the shadow of her predecessor, Abby does her best to be a good wife and mother. But the more she learns about her new husband’s first wife, the more things don’t add up. And Abby starts to wonder . . . was Sheila’s death really by natural causes? As Abby sinks deeper into confusion, Sheila’s memory seems to become a force all its own, ensnaring Abby in a mystery that leaves her obsessed, fascinated, and desperately in love for the first time in her life.”
