A good introduction to those who find reading books in comic format a challenge
One of our guests at Comic Con-versation 2016, Queenie Chan is a successful and highly regarded Manga artist, and she also produces works that combine both prose and graphic novel styles. "The Man with the Axe in His Back" is a book of short stories, including many comic-style illustrations, so this is a good introduction to those who find reading books in comic format a challenge. Queenie calls this format of book ‘comics-prose’. There are four spine-tingling ghost stories in this collection: my favourite was the first story and the one referred to in the title. The man with an axe in his back was a man that was murdered and now appears in a building elevator, to the horror of Jane, a temp working in the office. -- Ashfield Library Gazette (Aug2016-Sep2016)
