Reviews

"A twisted tale that draws from the likes of Alice in Wonderland and The Borrowers, only Beautiful Darkness presents a much bleaker allegory about brutality. As the tiny people lose hope, their underlying pettiness, greed and jealousy become evident despite their polite words and pretty faces." --Los Angeles Times Hero Complex "This unforgettable graphic novel hovers on the edge of your daydreams and nightmares." --Publishers Weekly Starred Review "Eerily enchanting." --Washington Post "You've seen countless stories about cute little creatures living secretly in our world, but you've never read one like Beautiful Darkness. It's a world that's as adorable as it is cruel, where life is beautiful but also cheap, and where death is omnipresent." --io9 "Set against the saccharine sweet storybook aesthetic of Kerascoet's rapturous watercolors, Vehlmann's narrative is a sinister saga that you won't be able to put down." --Nerdist "The watercolor artwork here is painfully beautiful, and the book is...best read on three separate sittings -- one day for each season -- to take in rise and wane and grudges of the miniature empires." --Buzzfeed "It's The Borrowers meets Lord of the Flies." --Comic Book Resources A twisted tale that draws from the likes of "Alice in Wonderland" and "The Borrowers," only "Beautiful Darkness" presents a much bleaker allegory about brutality.
