I actually read through this twice because it's so short. It's remarkably tight - in a short book like this it would be easy to "lose time" but Gfröer doesn't let any panel go to waste. Her style is well-suited to the subject matter as well, she finds beauty and terror in both the smallest of gestures and the most grotesque moments.

An NC-17 take on The Yellow Wallpaper?

Grieving the death of her fiancé, Eleanor Lutz finds herself living with her brother, caring for his invalid wife, losing her vision to cataracts, and doing the 19th-century version of a webcam sex show with the supernatural being inhabiting her mirror. Or maybe she's just having a mental health crisis?

There some shock value from the sex scenes and an extended scene that goes all in on the ol' injury-to-the-eye motif, but I didn't get much else from this dark and depressing dive into the abyss of human relations.

Trigger warning: sexual assault, incest, murder/suicide

Just finished Black Is the Color by ⁦Julia Gfrörer - almost a spiritual predecessor to The Lighthouse, if you wondered what the mermaid might get up to when not washed ashore after Ephraim unleashes the curse of sea bird slaughter.
