This is one GORE-geous collection! It's been a while since I took a look at these pages, since the single issues came out a little while back, but I was still in love with the way things turned out. I think that the character designs are just flat out great, sure we got the typical comic book styled school cast, but who cares, it looks good! Add to that some great coloring work, nice lettering and you got yourself a winner. Of course who can forget those drop dead scenes of horror, where someone get offed. Overall a great looking book that is added on when add in the extras with the trade.
Story: 4.0 out of 5
I am going to go a little lower on the story for one main reason, I thought the book bordered too much on the edge of good horror story vs. B-Style horror story. Now it's not a bad thing at all, I just found at moments it was too cheesy and then a little to serious. So my horrible negativity aside, I now have to say how much I loved this story overall. I found the dialogue to be great throughout, nothing seemed choppy or to out of place. The twist was killer too. Just good stuff all around.
Dying Breath: 4.0 out of 5
So here is what I have to say to the creators, when can I expect more work from you guys? This book is great from the first page to the last. I love the artwork and am floored by the story. I don't know if I would say it really mixed the two movies, but I can see the certain similarities. Bottom line is this, if you want to read something fun, this is it. If you want to read something creepy, this is it. If you want to read something I will be reading time and time again, this is it. Fantastic stuff, now start writing some more!
The problem is, the plot never really clicks, the two-dimensional characters never earn much sympathy and the story as a whole just trundles along in an effort to be something new ... which it's not.
You have a group of vastly diverse students locked in a library for Saturday detention as a school administrator and maintenance man tend to their own business elsewhere in the building. These kids never bond or anything, they just co-exist and occasionally clash. When the first one dies, you're mostly just relieved to have one less to keep track of.

Another drag on the graphic novel is the shoddy construction of the book itself. I have pondered from time to time why it is that several great artistic works are so shoddily bound as to allow the pages to fall out? If you spent that much effort, time and money to create powerful full color image, spend the extra pennies to get a printer with a decent binder system. On this issue alone it is hard to ever recommend a book. You should never have to shell out $14.99 for a book that falls apart in your hands.
Gripes aside, the tome has a few things pulling for it.Read more ›
