Comments: “Stake Out!” Bernie Wrightson delivers deliciously creepy art. Gorgeous art on all the characters they look fantastic. The story though starts out great but the ending makes no sense.
“Die-Vestment!” One man thinks he is so much better than everyone else and he takes full advantage of the fact he is rich. He abuses others and in this tale, he ends up getting just what he deserves as he is treated as he has treated others.
“Zombie Bank” One man thinks himself a hero but things are not always as they seem and he is the hero only to himself. The art is simplistic. The zombies are illustrated as almost cartoon type ones.
“The Were-Wolf of Wallstreet” This story does not make a whole lot of sense. The werewolf we just get a glimpse of him. Yes, its about making money and that making money is the focus can take away others dignity.
“Picture Perfect!” As you sow so shall you reap. High school is all about popularity. Some people though are so cruel, it’s nice though when fate steps in to take a hand or a photo.
“Undertow” Here a woman gets exactly what she sows. She is a despicable person and for what she did she gets what she deserves. The art is so-so but it really has nothing about it that stands out.
“Feed It” Another story that has an undeserving person being mistreated and then the main star well they do find out the hard way to look out. When you are cruel fate can be cruel to you.
“Leather or Not” This story has some beautiful women in it. It is all about a man who thinks he is so much better than others. He finds out the hard way he is not and can be easily replaced.
These are a wonderful collection of tales that are sure to raise the hairs on the back of your neck.
