I've long lamented the lack of good horror for kids. Fortunately, there have been a bunch of great middle grade and all-ages comics lately to help show kids the spooky stuff without scaring the crap out of them. That's how Last Dance by Hanna Schroy looks. The original graphic novel from Iron Circus Comics is described as “a tale of broken dreams, ambitions gone wrong, and chilling ghostly mischief.”

Prima ballerina Miriam has trained her whole life to get where she is, but she’s been keeping a secret from her friends and her dance company. Years of injuries have been taking their toll and when one final ankle sprain sidelines her at a crucial moment, she may have to call it quits. In her rage, she finds a hidden doorway, a seemingly magical pair of slippers, and a dark voice coaxing her to try them on. In exchange for the spirit's participation in her dance life, it will help her heal and get back to work. But since we've all read a horror comic before, we know that no supernatural fix comes without a sneaky price.

I never thought I'd find myself reading a comic about ballet, but that's what I'll be doing next week. Last Dance is set for release on January 12th, 2021.
