Winner of the 2007 Rue Morgue award for Best Comic Book Artist!

Worry doll is an inspired piece of gothic noir disguised as a children's book. It concerns a suitcase full of dolls who stumble across the murdered corpses of their host family in the living room, leading them to flee the crime scene and embark on the most nightmarish road trip in popular culture today. Stunningly crafted by artist/writer Matt Coyle, "Worry Doll" is a mesmerising dreamscape quite unlike anything you will have seen or read before.

...Coyle's work is groundbreaking. The imagery in Worry Doll is so far ahead of anything out there in terms of visual sophistication that it suggests a new way forward for the genre - maybe a new genre altogether.
