An extended riff on old EC horror comics. If you’re cool, you know the ones. It’s not original, it’s a tribute. Put together by Daniel James (Indonesian Junk/Chinese Telephones/Daniel James Gang) during the pandemic, it’s clearly a labor of love and affection. I’m not sure what history James has of making comics, but it’s clear he’s coming from a long history of reading them. This is really cute. Not perfect by any stretch—there’s some wonky lettering, some narration panels that should be in leading corner—but in the end, it’s a contribution to a genre that has no end, and deserves no end. Welcome to the pile. –Gwen Static (Personality Crisis, [email protected])
