“Overflowing with fantastical imagery, surreal ideas, bizarre characters, and abstract constructions and surroundings, all channeled through the eyes of children, amazed and scared, heroes and victims.” – Tim Palmer, Fanboy Comics

Two brothers, masters of childhood fantastical imagination, vow to kill the bogeyman, freeing the world from half-seen monsters hiding under beds and in dark basements. Along with art-punk nihilist Joy, they journey to a world of magic where ordinary rules no longer apply – and yet their fears, and the dangers they spawn, are as real as the waking world.

• Written by Ann Nocenti (
Green Arrow), with art by John Bolton (Harlequin Valentine).

Someplace Strange was first published in 1988 by Marvel Comics under that company's Epic Comics imprint and is republished in this edition by Dark Horse.

Comics Review

•Comics blog

“Combining Bolton’s hyper-real and exceedingly lush painting with Nocenti’s barbed and challenging sense of whimsy, this slight but hugely entertaining fable is a treat for those adults who sometimes wish they weren’t, and a lovely reminder of why kids like to be safely scared sometimes.“

“A surreal collaboration between Ann Nocenti and John Bolton that sees two brothers on a quest to destroy the Bogeyman.”

“Someplace Strange is a marvellous envisioning of what a child fears. It also allows us the opportunity to see how a child overcomes that fear. The secret to a child`s resilience does not lie simply in his youth, but in a kid`s capacity to problem-solve.”
