Mylings are children murdered by their mothers and buried clandestinely, maybe in the forest, maybe under the floorboards. Stuck between two dimensions, their bodies have continued growing in their graves, in twisted, unnatural ways. Sometimes they wake and venture out to haunt the living.

Description

Mylings are children murdered by their mothers and buried clandestinely, maybe in the forest, maybe under the floorboards. Stuck between two dimensions, their bodies have continued growing in their graves, in twisted, unnatural ways. Sometimes they wake and venture out to haunt the living.

Amanda Casanellas has taken this old Nordic myth into a new, postapocalyptic context in her novella, adapted to comics form by Yossra El Said. The book contains the comic in Swedich and English as well as the original short story in English.

Myling won third prize in the comics competition in Oulu 2015, on the theme Hunger of horror.
