In the Dark: A Horror Anthology

In the Dark: A Horror Anthology - Cullen Bunn, F. Paul Wilson, Tim Seeley, Steve Seeley, Marc Laming, Duane Swierczynski, Dalibor Talajić, Paul Tobin, Nate Southard, Mike Henderson, Thomas Boatwright, Matthew Dow Smith, George Sturt, Chris Dibari, Douglas Holgate, Jody LeHeup, Mike Oliveri, Tom    Taylor, I bought this thinking it was another recent horror comic collection, but kept it because it looked interesting. There are many hooks in these stories, but I think it would be more memorable if less people had been included and the volume developed longer, stronger stories. it's hard to be horrifying in 3-7 pages, especially in the graphic format. so a lot of the time the stories would consist of a cool conceit with nothing to tether it to the reader. maybe the writers/artists will develop more of these ideas later, I hope.
