From official release/information:

Created as a comic book series, Abadazad came to an abrupt end when the publisher went out of business. Enter Disney, which bought the rights to the comic for their Hyperion line of books. Now writer J.M. DeMatteis and illustrator Mike Ploog continue this darkly whimsical tale in a series of compact, beautifully illustrated hardcovers.

Fourteen year old Kate carries a terrible burden of guilt; five years ago, her brother "Saint" Matt vanished on a street carnival ride while in her care. This has driven Kate into therapy, which isn't helping her cope with her anger, and her mother to the verge of alcoholism. Enter Mrs. Vaughn, their next door neighbor, who claims to be the inspiration for "Little Martha" in the Abadazad novels. The problem is, those best-loved children's classics were first written a hundred years ago...
