Animus GN (2018 First Second Books) comic books 2017-2019
Story and art by Antoine Revoy.
Two children confront the sinister forces residing in a haunted playground in this horror-manga-inflected graphic novel from artist Antoine Revoy. The residents of a quiet Japanese neighborhood have slowly come to realize that inauspicious, paranormal forces are at play in the most unlikely of places: the local playground. Two friends, a young boy and girl, resolve to exorcise the evil that inhabit it, including a snaggle-toothed monster. In Animus, a beautiful but spooky young adult graphic novel of everyday hauntings, Antoine Revoy delivers an eerie tale inspired by the Japanese and French comics of his childhood.
