While the previous releases set out the type of tales they would be pulling together they backed that up with a magazine-sized book that got better and better with every page-turn let alone issue……and that trend has continued with this latest release.
The Kraken’s Eye by J.L. Brady
Soul Mates by William Hazle
No Sleep by Kieran O’Connor
Exogamy by Rebecca Tough
Frightful Funnies by Kieran O’Connor
This new collection has some familiar names attached and the mix of styles & approach from each creator maintains that central dark & sinister theme proving that this kind of release still has a place in the wider indie comic market. The episodic vibe to the horror tales as introduced by the crypt-keeper-like Tattybogle Man keeps on delivering a great blend of stories and the editing of this from contributor/creator William Hazle keeps a finely balanced sense of direction with everything being produced from the Dundee-based publisher.
The “something for everyone” tag is something that gets thrown around regularly but in the case of this title it feels like the truth, albeit within the constraints of a horror-filled release that has elements of comedy-horror in its cartoony offerings through to its much darker & visceral elements of real gore. At its horror-filled core it still manages to be entertaining and it’ll be easy to pick out a favourite from each of the stories on offer but the whole collection in each issue helps highlight how important each piece actually is to its overall success. Great work that just keeps getting better.
