Welcome to part 2 of the Freakshow series by Digital Webbing. I know I am a few years behind on this one. So if you can find a copy of it great! So to me the cover is the strong point when it comes to the art on this issue. Thatâ€™s not to say that what follows inside is bad, just in my opinion not on the same level. I think that out of the four stories my favorite looking one was â€śFlu Bugâ€ť. It had that vibe of what I recalled reading as a kid. The others stories work well, they just didnâ€™t really appeal to my tastes. I will say I did like the color work on â€śDronesâ€ť too.
Story: 3.5 out of 5
So the 4 stories are pretty good in this one. I found â€śFlu Bugâ€ť to be a fun take on having the flu, but in relation to the rest I found it to be weaker on the horror scale. All the others I really liked, sending another special mention to â€śDronesâ€ť. So yeah the stories are short and fun, I mean how deep can they really get?
Dying Breath: 3.5 out of 5
Now I want to start out with an apology to Chris Kirby, I got this book from you at C2E2 with the intention of reviewing it sooner and I am sorry I waited. Now that aside, I liked it. I think the art was a good mix of styles, I canâ€™t stop looking at the cover. The stories were fun and all finished nicely due to size constraints. So if this a good one to pick up? Yes. Is it something to blow you away? No. Take it, have fun with it and by all means enjoy it people, itâ€™s horror related!!!
