Tired of school? Chores? Parents? Come to Holiday House, where it's summer every day, Halloween every evening, and Christmas every night. All it'll cost you is your soul.
Mr. Hood's Holiday House has stood for a thousand years, welcoming countless children into its embrace. It is a place of miracles, a blissful round of treats and seasons, where every childhood whim may be satisfied. Harvey Swick is skeptical at first, but quickly finds that the House is better than anything he could have dreamed. And, soon after that, he'll realize that it's also much, much worse.
Clive Barker's beloved children's novel is brought to vivid new life in this graphic novel adaptation by Kris Oprisko, featuring full-color art by Gabriel Hernandez (The Vision), sure to please longtime fans of the original book.
Reminiscent of Ray Bradbury's Something Wicked This Way Comes and, more recently, Joe Hill's N0S4A2, The Thief of Always is sure to earn a place of honor on any bookshelf.
