The Sphinx of Driz
What a treat to read a graphic novel that intersperses original text with modern day interpretation and delicious illustrations! Fantastic!
Dishadel
Rocky Wood and illustrator Glenn Chadbourne have created a truly unique and utterly compelling brief history of horror in this lovely book. The text by Wood, which begins with a discussion of FRANKENSTEIN and goes onto cover such diverse topics as Shakespeare, the Gothic novel, BEOWULF, and Dracula, is illuminating and informed, offering both background and synopsis for each of the major works. The touch of poetry in Wood's words is perfectly matched by Chadbourne's illustrations, which are detailed and appropriately grotesque. Even the choice of font for the text is thoughtful and appropriate. This is a book that can be read cover to cover, or simply paged through and savored in small sections. Bravo!
Dangerous
Rocky Wood knew horror. This is a nice introduction to the history of the genre by the President of the Horror Writers Association. A lasting legacy to the giants who came before.
