Staff Reviews


In this book, with illustrations that will make you smile more and be less afraid, Krause collects almost a hundred fears and shows that it’s normal to fear ghosts, mirrors, thunderstorms, among others. As for me, I have an irrational fear that if I don’t count the stairs while going up or down, I will definitely fall.

— From Stephanie

Description


A follow-up to the New York Times best-selling Deep Dark Fears: a second volume of comics based on people's quirky, spooky, hilarious, and terrifying fears.

Illustrator, animator, teacher, and comic artist Fran Krause has touched a collective nerve with his wildly popular web comic series and subsequent book Deep Dark Fears. Here he brings readers more of the creepy, funny, and idiosyncratic fears they love illustrated in comic form--such as the fear that your pets will tell other animals all your embarrassing secrets, or that someone uses your house while you're not home--as well as two longer comic short-stories about ghosts.
