Emily Carroll drew her first webcomic in May 2010, titled His Face All Red, described as "genuinely creepy, genuinely bleak stories of murder and monstrousness." The comic makes frequent use of infinite canvas, but despite this, it was released in print in December 2011. After her first webcomic, Carroll has contributed to various print anthologies, including "Explorer: Mystery Boxes," "Fairy Tale Comics," "Creepy" and "The Witching Hour." In 2014, an anthology of her comics was published in book form as Through the Woods.

In 2014, Carroll uploaded The Hole the Fox Did Make, a horror comic strip, to the Internet. Carroll chose for a limited format to see how she could create unease in a limited space. Furthermore, she created this webcomic during breaks between other work, and the format facilitated drawing in "small chunks". The Hole the Fox Did Make was praised by Paste Magazine as one of the best webcomics of 2014.
