From Goodreads:

The books contains horror, dark, at times demented, stories incorporating every human emotion, illegal activity, and brutal reality. Using various illustrators allows each story and character to develop their own form the reader is left desperate to turn the pages. The book has been embraced by the comic book world receiving critical acclaim and a cult underground following.

Each story has a dark twist at the end that I wasn’t expecting. Talk about a jolt straight to the system. Eeek! The illustrations fit the story matter. Done all in black & white they are dark yet that doesn’t detract from the artwork which I enjoyed. Even though horror is way down on my long list of genres I love to read, I would definitely continue with this series.
