It's well written and rather funny. I enjoy Norton's work (Battlepug) and this is no different.

To the other reviewer: don't downgrade something because you don't care for the language. Do a little research before buying if you have such sensitivities.

Format: Paperback
Just when it seems that most fictional monsters have been 'defanged' - emo vampires sparkle, werewolves help bring magical miscreants to justice, zombies open detective agencies - Mike Norton, happily, brings us a new threat - werepirates - one bite and the victim becomes a pirate, eye patch, peg leg and all. Scarey? You betcha! I mean, just the thought of thousands of one-legged werepirates baying sea shanties at the full moon is enough to shiver me timbers.

And, if that's not enough, there are some absolutely hysterical references to '80s cult film, Labyrinth, and its rock star leading man which are, well, huge and hugely funny.

So, for those of us who miss the good ol' days when monsters were monstrous and hair rockers wore codpieces, Mike Norton's graphic novel, The Curse, is the perfect antidote to wussie monster burnout.

Format: Paperback
Reason for Reading: It sounded funny.

The first page (pg. 3) which has three speech bubbles has five vulgar words and at this point I was wondering what I was reading. By page six I'd read so much profanity I was disgusted and about to close the book for good but then came page seven. I have got to admit that when the pirate jumped out from the bushes and attacked the jerk boyfriend biting him on the arm and running away, I found this highly amusing and unexpected that I had to keep reading. Once I'd finished the first of three stories, it seemed pointless to stop reading an 80 page book now that I'd got this far. The second story was highly amusing with David Bowie's Labyrinth character as the main antagonist. I giggled when he was referred to as "Kajagoogoo" and "the chick from Duran Duran". Third story didn't do much for me. So, yeah, this was rather hilarious in parts but the language was most foul indeed and I'd never read anything by this author again. The publisher's recommended age is for teens but I'd never let any teen of mine read it unless I was OK with them talking like a hardened gang member. Honestly, there is absolutely no reason for the continuous vile language used in this book. Not very impressed, though I admit the humour tickled my funny bone.
