Rarely have I seen an artist whose cross-hatched phantasms are more evocative or more disturbing. Landis Blair weaves a world of dark discontents that is as disquieting as it is addictive.
— Emil Ferris, author of My Favorite Thing is Monsters
It’s like if Edward Gorey stopped playing nice.
— Hayley Campbell, author of The Art of Neil Gaiman
Landis’s work is a fusion of Grand Guignol horror and delicately-layered poignancy that can’t be found elsewhere. He is a singular morbid talent.
— Caitlin Doughty, author of Smoke Gets in Your Eyes
Good grief, Landis; this is a bit gruesome.
— Eddie Campbell,
artist of From Hell
The Envious Siblings gave me the fantods, in the nicest possible way.
— Audrey Niffenegger,
author of The Time Traveler’s Wife

Inspired by the dark imagination of Edward Gorey, Envious Siblings is a twisted and hauntingly funny debut. Comics artist Landis Blair interweaves absurdist horror and humor into brief, rhyming vignettes at once transgressive and hilarious. These charmingly perverse creations take ordinary settings—a living room, a subway car, a playground—and spin them in a nightmarish direction.

Envious Siblings heralds a brilliant new cartooning talent, and will captivate readers who have thrilled to the lurid fantasies of Roald Dahl, Quentin Blake, Charles Addams, Shel Silverstein, and Tim Burton.
