Love it but wish it was in full color with glossy paper For BW on newsprint it's not bad I enjoyed this one better then the previous similar collection Weird Business but that one featured different authors while this one is all Lansdale Some of the stories are incredibly dark well most of them but I suppose that's what horror is all about The art is mostly above average and the stories are good This is a good collection but be warned it's dark and graphic If you're familiar with Lansdale however you already know that I read through this graphic novel of Joe Lansdale stories in one afternoon And I must say the stories are very GRAPHIC I have read several of Lansdale's novels and short story collections including some of the Hap and Leonard series and have pretty much enjoyed them all I was kind of mixed on this one probably because of the comic bookgraphic novel approach to the stories I think I like Lansdale's prose and dialog better in his written novels and stories To me the stories in this collection seemed to jump around too fast with many pages having no dialog or descriptions at all Anyway I did enjoy some of these including The Grease Trap Night They Missed the Horror Show and especially Dead in the West which was a cross between The Walking Dead and Gunsmoke The stories were very morbid and full of sex and violence in Lansdale's usual fashion I just didn't care too much to the comic book approach If you like the funny dirty ultraviolent world of Joe Lansdale especially the horror stuff this is for you I'd read two of the stories in here in their original prose format Dead in the West and Tight Little Stitches in a Dead Man's Back and they were done very well here The other stories I'd never read and all of them were great a big slime monster living in a septic tank alternate history where Japan has colonized the western US in the Old West days fights on the highway at night between fucked up vigilantes and truck drivers a noir story with man eating dogs and revenge etc All told with Joe's authentic Texas language and sense of humor Great comic book
