Focusing more on the main story line and less on the delightfully baffling tangents, this third print volume of the webcomic follows Antimony Carver as she digs deeper into the history of the schism between her puzzling and cavernous boarding school and the surrounding wilderness, home to threatening yet alluring animal spirits and even deeper mysteries. While the story is growing darker as it gets thornier, there’s still a finely tuned balance of odd quirks and sly humor (mostly thanks to an ancient demon trapped in Antimony’s stuffed animal). Siddell’s deep-purple artwork is as gorgeous as ever. Grades 8-12. --Ian Chipman
