Pinocchio's story is traditionally a heartwarming tale about a lonely man who makes himself a child. Since the release of Carlo Collodi's The Adventures of Pinocchio in 1883, many different versions of the children's classic have been produced in popular culture and literature. If a scarier version of the loveable wooden babe is up your alley, look no further than graphic novel Pinocchio, Histoire d'un Enfant

This gritty French Pinocchio, created by artist and author Ausonia, drastically inverts the traditional Pinocchio narrative. Instead of a human man making a puppet out of wood, a wooden man makes a puppet out of flesh and blood. The results are gritty, gory images that evoke Frankenstein's monster; they're a far stretch from the whimsical tale many grew up with. If you didn't plan on sleeping tonight, anyway, enjoy some images from the book that are truly the stuff of nightmares.
