ALA Booklist
Krause's gripping second collection of nightmare confessions (submitted to his popular webcomic by readers) is an excellent choice for readers who want to be spooked but also provoked into thought. The fears range from lighthearted hen I read by myself, I read out loud, in case there are any curious ghosts or spirits nearby" much darker, but what ties them all together is their universality. They reflect people worrying about parenting, soul mates, social interactions, death, and more. Most of the tales are simply illustrated by a few small panels highlighting Krause's no-nonsense line drawings. He uses color to perfectly pair with the tales, sometimes in a rainbow palette, sometimes more muted. Almost all of the small confessions are improved by the addition of his art, and several take on new meaning thanks to the drawings, especially "The Bridge," one of two longer stories that read more like traditional horror tales when readers pay close attention to the action being illustrated. Subtle, haunting vignettes for older teens and adults.

A follow-up to the New York Times best-selling Deep Dark Fears: a second volume of comics based on people's quirky, spooky, hilarious, and terrifying fears.

Illustrator, animator, teacher, and comic artist Fran Krause has touched a collective nerve with his wildly popular web comic series and subsequent book Deep Dark Fears. Here he brings readers more of the creepy, funny, and idiosyncratic fears they love illustrated in comic form--such as the fear that your pets will tell other animals all your embarrassing secrets, or that someone uses your house while you're not home--as well as two longer comic short-stories about ghosts.
