Review

"These comics reprint some fun, eccentrically creepy tales. It's all about characters who are up to no good. But the fun part is that the drawings are deliberately strange. Gravediggers with exaggerated features. Kids who don't look 'wholesome'. Old people with wrinkles on their wrinkles. Fun, I tell ya." -Fanboy Factor
