Read Notes on a Case of Melancholia, Or by Nicholas Gurewitch

Death arrives in this darkly humorous and brilliantly illustrated tale created by Nicholas Gurewitch, author of The Perry Bible Fellowship.

I’m a big Edward Gorey fan and this felt like a fitting tribute. The scratchboard etchings, lush with blacks and the ethereal white on black lines sometimes having a ghostly quality, complemented the story well. The story was fun with an eerily fitting ending. Fantastic job emulating Grey’s illustration style while keeping it just a bit different.
