->"We were separated. The beast must have devoured him. This was the only trace I found."
An enigmatic 10-page horror comic, reminiscent of Creator/EdgarAllanPoe. When a wolf begins terrorizing their village, two brothers venture out into the woods to find and kill it. Only one comes back. Claiming that the wolf got his brother, the survivor wins the admiration of the villagers (who had previously mocked him).
Then his brother comes back, although it may not really his brother, and he panics.
''Face All Red'' has been praised by Creator/KateBeaton and Creator/ScottMcCloud for its pacing and atmosphere. Can be found [[http://emcarroll.com/comics/faceallred/01.html here]].
The author, [[http://www.emcarroll.com/ Emily Carroll]], has written other comics as well--some in the same horror vein, others with different moods. They're all well worth a read.
