SUMMARY: Forbidden Gallery’s thrilling tales of horror and adventure are pleasing to the eye and evocative to the heart of any fans who enjoy EC / Eerie / Creepy -era impactful storytelling.
Spectacular Second Issue!
Forbidden Gallery #2 combines the feel of a 1970s color horror anthology comic with the spirit of a suspense-filled Rod Serling TV show.
COMMENTS: With the second issue gone is the 70s retro feel. This issue has higher production values and a stonger color palet than the first issue. In “Wall Flower” we see Archimedes in a two-page introductory story. This time Archimedes is hosting a sex club in his castle, more of a PG-13 sex club, but unexpected after the first issue. They never did this in House of Mystery.
“Scattercrow” is a 5-page story of ritual child sacrifice in 1626 colonial America it’s got a rich fabric of the times as vengeance is unleashed until, it isn’t. A fun twist at the end gives a nice closure to this story.
“Reflections in a Black Pool” is 5-pages of sci-fi terror tale, only we are the terrorists. As a reporter goes to a small town to investigate he sees the face of intolerance and it is us.
“Pumpkin Smoosher” is a good story but a weird one. It is a 7-page story that starts out as a werewolf story, moves into a Swamp Thing type story and ends up just sad and depressing. I’m ok with death to the wicked and all but this was just sad ending. I felt bad for the little girl.
“The Wire Brain” is another 7-page story about a man with brain cancer who tries experimental surgery to save his life with some unwanted side effects. This is the only story in the collection that feels like it needed more pages to tell the story and is a little rushed in the storytelling.
“The Other Side” is a 7-page story told in the 50’s sci-fi, outer space genre. It’s a classic type story with a wonderful twist ending.
All in all, this is a fun comic and well worth the price of admission! Look for it on Comixology soon.
