It may be a comic, but this book is definitely not for kids. If you're a grownup with a fascination for death and a slightly morbid sense of humor, though, check it out!
I find the cartoon character "host" of the stories, a little Goth girl, oddly charming, even delightful.
Many talented cartoonists are included, & the book is fairly well researched, although the sections on Countress Bathory contain the usual errors.
The Hipster gives it a big Thumbs Up!
This book is not for the queasy or faint hearted. That being said, I didn't find it to be tacky and tasteless either. I bought this book at a death museum in Californa in the 1990's. It has stood the test of time.
