Editorial Reviews

Review

Encompassing established properties--tales of the Hellboy universe, the Whedon-verse (Buffy, Serenity, Dr. Horrible), Emily the Strange, and Stan Sakai's always excellent Usagi Yojimbo--as well as less-familiar esoterica, this volume, like the previous ones, makes a great sampler for newcomers but still packs enough comic savvy smarts for the experienced. And it's a particularly fine bonus to see such a sizable array of female creators involved. (Sept.) --Booklist --Booklist

More About the Author

"Accurate record-keeping is superfluous to an enterprise like this, but I'd wager no other cartoonist has shown up more often on Minis Monday than Colleen Frakes. In fact, I'd modify the title once given to James Brown and call her The Hardest Working Woman in Minicomics..."
- Rich Kreiner, The Comics Journal


Colleen Frakes was a member of the inaugural class of the Center for Cartoon Studies. In 2007 she received a Xeric Grant for her book "Tragic Relief". In 2009 she was awarded the Ignatz for "Promising New Talent" for her book "Woman King". In 2011, her comic "Island Brat" was published with help from Koyama Press.

She has created comics for Mirage Studio's "Tales of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles", Dark Horse Comic's "Myspace Dark Horse Presents", and more anthologies than she can count.

She currently lives in Seattle and works in a library.

Format: Paperback
"MySpace Dark Horse Presents Vol 3" regains the sparkle of the first volume after a dull second book. The focus in this volume is on horror stories and reflects the tone of the Crypt Keeper comics of the '50s.

Mike Mignola launches the book off with his story of three witches plotting to murder Queen Victoria while Edward Grey, the Witchfinder, is on their trail to stop them. Becky Cloonan continues the macabre mood with "I See the Devil in My Sleep" which documents the downfall of a young man's sanity ending with an epitaph by the Beast of Chicago. "Creepy: Meet the Creepys" is Dan Braun's tongue in cheek horror story about a strange family, while Josh Dysart's "The Stain" tells the story of an autobiographical (?) story of visiting an abandoned mental asylum looking for a room with the stain of a young woman who killed herself there years ago.

"Creepy: Om Nom Nom!" by Andrew Mayer has a crypt keeper-type narrator telling the story of a cannibalistic old woman. The horror tone takes a comedy angle with "Previously Possessed" by Sarah Oleksyk about a haunted party dress while "The Nightmare of the Wine Hobo" by Jamaica Dyer is a brilliantly illustrated silent comic about a hobo who falls for an enchanting bottle of wine.

Two brilliant online comics make an appearance: "Achewood: One Dollar Genius" by Chris Onstad takes teddy bears and makes them street. Three bored bears get stoned and decide to go on a road trip to nowhere. They stop at a Taco Bell and decide to buy one of everything and blog about it. "The K Chronicles" by Keith Knight is about his year which brought him a new child and a new profession - comics creator.

Fans of Joss Whedon will enjoy this book too as three of his series' are present: strips of Serenity, Buffy the Vampire Slayer and Doctor Horrible are all included.

Great return to form from the team at MySpace Dark Horse, great read, great fun.

Bad artwork and awful writing plague this otherwise mediocre book. Don't buy for any price, this is lazy and poorly done.
