Praise For…


"Ghost stories are a Christmas tradition, and 'The Quarry,' like the very best of them, shows us the importance of seeking out and protecting the light in the darkest time of the year. The art is lovely, colored as if filtered through a frosted window. And the characters -- and the snowy stage of Michigan -- will linger with you long after you finish the final, heart-bruised page."
— Benjamin Percy
