Description

Lucky for Charles, Echo City has Margo Maloo, monster mediator. No matter who's causing trouble, Margo knows exactly what to do - the neighbourhood kids say monsters are afraid of her. It's a good thing, because Echo City's trolls, ogres, and ghosts all have one thing in common: they don't like Charles very much. Cartooning powerhouse Drew Weing delivers a breakthrough graphic novel with this first volume of The Creepy Case Files of Margo Maloo. A favourite within the indie comic's scene, Weing is definitely a talent worthy of greater recognition.show more

Review quote

Included in Kirkus's "Best of 2016" list."You're going to lie awake at night thinking about how fun this book is." -Adam Rex, author of The True Meaning of Smekday "Margo Maloo is fantastic fun!" -Tom Angleberger, author of the Origami Yoda series"Clever dialogue enhances this intriguing and multilayered story set in a fully realized world of monster and human coexistence."--Kirkus"The banter is brisk and witty, and humans and monsters alike boast a refreshing ordinariness unusual in fantasy/horror/hero comics."--BCCB"With a saturated color palette, noirish dialogue, and a thought-provoking message about gentrification, this first in a series (originally published as a webcomic) is packed with warm laughs and smart, spooky mystery."--Booklist"Weing's colorful drawings reward extended examination; Echo City is rife with monster life, and creepy crawlies turn up in the most unexpected places, but domestic scenes and the city streets also show the artist's keen eye for details."--SLJ"It's a beautifully conceived and executed trio of stories, and readers will hope that more installments are on the way."-- Publisher's Weeklyshow more
