Creepy Comics Vol.2: At Death's Door, Dark Horse Publishers

Creepy Comics Volume 2: At Death's DoorCreepy Comics Volume 2: At Death's Door by Jeff Parker
My rating: 2 of 5 stars

This item was provided to me by the publisher, Dark Horse.

I lost interest after the first story. The art was good. Not amazing or spectacular, but good. I generally prefer comics with color, I find them to be more impressive overall. However, there are some equally excellent comics in black and white; I just feel like the bar is raised when it's in black and white. I enjoyed the first story a lot. It was unique, dealing with a shaman and her quest to save her tribe and her son from a terrible fate. It had a strong American Indian/aborigine theme and feel to it, which is unique as I don't recall reading many comics with that same theme. I liked that it seemed to create a completely original world in which the reader was sucked into. These are important elements of a good comic/graphic novel. If I could rate the first Story alone, I'd give it 3 stars. However, my rating goes on the entire book and the fact that the book went downhill after the first story.
