Coraline is the story of a gutsy girl who becomes trapped in a parallel world behind the walls of an old mansion. When author Neil Gaiman wanted a graphic novel version of his story, he turned to Ohio artist P. Craig Russell. Russell's version of Coraline adds another page of history to a Kent landmark.

This story was extremely interesting to me as our son, Mike Walters who has a special effects studio in California, had P. Craig Russell as an art instructor at Kent State Univ. I got to meet Mr. Russell at a book signing a while back at the Black Squirrel gallery and bought a couple of his
books to send to my son. It was a very pleasant surprise for him as he remembers Russell's class very well.

Thanks for the story and interview.
