Here be monsters in the unlikeliest of places and we are all the better for it. Ferris' debut stalks the graphic diary of 10-year old Karen Reyes. Monsters, pulp-fiction, and bic-pen work meet to tell the macabre tale of growing up in '60s Chicago and solving a neighbor's murder. Ferris has drawn it out of the park.

— From Alex
